Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

1 Answer

The bike will not start

We have a 2007 HD Ultra Glide, purchased 3 months ago. After our last ride of about 600 miles, we washed the bike and parked it in the garage. Now it will not start. (this is the 3rd ride of about the same distance with no trouble) The lights are bright and not fading.
Our inital thought was something was wet from the wash. It is about 107 in Phoenix today and the bike has had 2 days to dry. Nothing but our arm-pits remain damp for long in this heat.
We could purchase a battery charger or a new battery if that is the most likely cause. Needless to say we know which end of the wrench to use, but bearly. The next option is the Harley shop that is about 5 miles away, further than I want to push the bike.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Just a couple questions, then I'll see if I can point you in the right direction. Did you purchase from the dealer or individual? What exactly is it doing when you hit the switch?

If I don't get back to you tonight, I will tomorrow morning. It's a beautiful evening here in Missouri The hurricane has pushed some real nice 70 degree weather up here, and it beats the hell out of the 100 degree heat we've been having. So, I'm gonna ride.

Check the TSM. Remove the unit, and remove the cap on it. If you smell a burnt smell from it that is your problem. Those TSMs control nearly everything on the bike, eventually the bike won't start at all. Simple fix if you're carbureted, but the ECM will have to be reprogrammed if you're injected.

No start 09 Ultra Classic Electra Glide

Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.

Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.

If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.
