First ya gotta figure out what clicks - is it the relay, or the starter ? In either event - you'll need a multi meter or voltmeter to trouble shoot it.... but since u just replaced the battery - start by checkin the battery connections especially at the starter. Torque em and rotate em to grind em in and make a good connection. If that s not it - you have a bad solenoid or starter motor or relay. oh - before you start replacing stuff - make sure ya gotta full charge from the battery

2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic lost all electrical power


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

2000 heritage softail....new battery losing charge as i ride....then wont turn over after shutting down...even 1-2 mile of riding ???


Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

After riding a short time the engine kicks out turns off. Shortly after, I am able to turn the engine back on with key. I have a HD, 2000 Heritage Softail Classic.


after it shuts off, are you able to turn the engine over as if trying to start it? does it just turn over and not fire? or will it turn over at all? if it does turn over after it shuts off, immediately pull the plugs and check for spark. and also see if the plugs are wet with fuel.

Replaced positive battery cable + spark=bike will not fire up


I am afraid to make assumptions as to what else you have checked due to some negative feedback. Did you LOAD check the Battery? Did you check and clean your grounds? If you have done all of that the next logical problem is the solenoid, which can be rebuilt.

I would take the battery up to advance or autozone and get it tested under load. The battery may show 12v but not have the amps to crank

I have a 2000 Softail "Fatboy". The problem is overheating/starting. On several occasions after riding in high heat on several trips say in the 75 to 400 mile range the bike will not restart...


This is going to be a problem with the starter. When a starter is getting a bit on the worn side, high temps will cause the electric motor not to engage creating the same clicking sound as if the battery was dead or had a bad contact.
