Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

1 Answer

Wiring--how to I don't understand wiring. However, I want to wire my motorcycle jacket liner so I can have a heated motorcycle jacket. I removed the wire from an electric mattress pad that we are no longer using, but I don't know how to hook it up so it will warm the jacket. As I look at a regular plug, I see two wires, so I guess I will need two wires, i.e. one + and one -. Is that correct? Then what?

Re: wiring--how to

Whoa! If you try to use the mattress pad that used to plug into the house wiring and make it work from your motorcycle wiring you will not get the result you want. The house supply is 110 Volts AC and the motorcycle is 12 or 6 volts DC. I can help you make what you want but we would have to start from a different direction.
First start by telling me what kind of battery you have on the Harley. I wonder if there is enough juice for a thing like a heater. When you charge the battery what settings do you put it on 6 or 12 VDC?

You may want to go to a Cabella's store and see all the stuff they have for deer hunters to keep warm that run on batteries and you would get some ideas to use real quick.

Hi, I have a Panasonic Cordless phone with 2 bases. I have moved one from upstairs to the phone jacket downstairs. Our third phone worked fine until I switched two of them around. Now only the plugged...

You could plug your non-cordless phone into suspicious phone jack to see if you have dial tone-if you dont have dial tone, the line maynot be connected and you should open the jack to see if there is more than 1 cable attached. If there is more than 1 cable attached and you dont have dial tone at other end of cable the cable might be cut or shorted somewhere inbetween. You can test continuity by tying 2 wires together and test with a multimeter on resistance to see if it is open circuit or maybe even short circuit. To test for short circuit, untie the cables and you should not get a reading. If you do have dial tone when you plug in non-cordless phone the distance might be to far for receiver to pick it up(ie..greater than 10 metres). I hope this has been helpful.

Sir unfortunately i blocked my sim & it need puk code plz help me my no. is 7275736837

PUK code is directly related to your SIM and if you attempt wrong three times your sim will be rejected and you need a replacement. What you need is to find the sim packet or jacket when you bought your sim card its mentioned on that and if you don't have that packet or wrapper then you need to contact your cellular provider they will give you the PUK code.

Harley Heated Hand Grips not working

The harley heated handgrips are notorious for failing.  Some people have reported finding a loose connection on the ground wire, like they did not crimp the terminal on the end of the wire at the factory.  If they are wired externally of the bars (almost impossible to wire those any other way) then it should be easy to follow the wire down to inside the headlight bucket or in the nacelle or dash, (depending on what model bike) and check the connections.  If both grips quit at the same time then it's probably wiring.  If one quit first, then it may be the grip itself.
If you need to replace them, I would highly recommend not buying the HD brand anymore, and instead choose Polly grip heaters.  They are made for snowmobiles and have a long list of benefits over the HD type: - fits internally in the bar end, so you can use any grips you want - cost $35!!  compared to $250 for HD - easy to install
I have installed over 7 sets in my friends bikes and not one single failure.

Rear turn signals

if you have the old harness and the connectors are still in good condition that should be as easy as replacing each wire individually from connector to connector. remember to solder your wires one at a time matching color to color and wrap with heat shrink tape, then incase the new wires in a new plastic wire conduit to protect from road grime.
