SOURCE: What does it mean when I test and get a clear signal and then it fades to nothing?

Hi -

First, make sure the battery in the tester is good. If unsure of the batteries charge state, replace them (requires {4} IDEAL# 61-201,
IEC #LR44, or NEOA# 1166A) before continuing.

What you're describing sounds an awful lot like a testing of a capacitor. If you were to connect an analog ohm meter to a capacitor, the needle would indicate a very low resistance value and gradually swing to a very high resistance value. it would not take more than a few seconds to go from low to high indication. Use of a digital meter wouldn't show this very well, as the resistance value is constantly changing - rendering an actual numeric value impossible to display.

Once the resistance value has reached the high value on the meter, swap the polarity of the leads, and it should read low again - and climb to the high value once more. This will happen each time the leads are reversed.

You can view the manual here.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Just had new battery installed on my 2006 Road King. batter tender stays yellow.


Hi Anonymous, you could have bought a bad battery that's why they have warranties, have a load test performed on the battery. Good luck

Hello, have a 2003 XL 1200 custom that wont start,what is happening when you kick it over and it starts clickin then starts to die away like battery going dead. cheers Jes


I think you hit the nail on the head, Jes. Sounds exactly like your battery is going dead. Just to make sure, take the battery out of your bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Have them test the battery. They'll usually do this free of charge. If your battery is over two years old, it's probably bad.

Now, if you purchase a new battery, get the highest CCA (cold cranking amps) battery you can get. Also, consider the purchase of a Battery Tender or a Smart Charger that will connect directly to your battery via a short pigtail. Do not use a regular automotive battery charger. Put the pigtail on your battery and when you get of the bike, plug the charger to the battery. This will increase your battery life tremendously.

Good Luck
Steve
