I would check the obvious fuses and such. however, if your bike has the self reset circuit breakers, you might have one to go bad. they work on the bi-metal principle where current flows through a calibrated piece of spring steel and when it heats up, it deforms and opens a set of contacts and when it cools off it returns to shape and closes the contacts. these are available at auto parts stores at a faction of the cost from hd.

Horn does not work on my 1999 harley davidson Fat By motorcycle


First check the two wires going to the rear of the Horn. One ground One Power. If they are connected to the horn then check the ground wire it comes lose most often. If you have power to the Horn then the Horn is defective. If you have no power to the horn it is necessary to trace up to your switch houseing. Usually the problem is ground, I have found defective horns but not often. You can take the horn off and using a battery and wire touch the two prongs in the back of the horn.If it works then the problem is either ground or power. Make sure horn is grounded. Usually the problem is a grounding one. Good Luck.

I took my bike apart to paint now it wont turnover not sure that the battery cabel is hooked up right where does the ground go to frame and motoror on starter? its a 1984 sporster


solid mounted motor should ground to motor or frame did you maybe for get the smaller wire to positive term it goes to the main fuse you didnt say whether you had lights or not but theres too many possibilities if you got a book i'm geussing no but they'll have the complete wireing diagrams my advice get a mechanic down there it'll be reasonable cause if he knows his stuff it'll be pretty quick and do keep in mind paintjobs have bred lots of basket cases

I have a 2000 HD sporster 1200 custom. The left turn signals (front and rear) along with the hazard lights do not work. The right turn signal works and the cancel of the left turn signal works when...


first just because a bulb looks good doesnt mean it is couple of peices of wire and a battery is all you need to test the bulbs secound thing the turn signal cancel works on the amount of flashes regardless of which side is on note:any bulb thats bad none on that side will work

Speedometer dropping to zero and security light is solid red


look for wire breaks, bad splices; if you ran internal wires through your bars; we all do; check there solder joints don't **** splice;
security light means a current trouble code on tssm; take it to a tech/dealer before it strands you; probably bad ground; maybe bad module; good luck

I know this sounds crazy and the only reason I am giving this as a solution is because it happened to me. Even though the electrical system has enough power to turn the engine, it does not have enough power to turn the engine and power to spark. Correct any poor connections at the battery terminals, etc. Try jump starting the bike. If it works, you know the problem is a weak battery and/or a poor connection.

Bike will not start because alarm will not deactivate


Another common problem. Open transmitter, remove battery - there's a small tang dead center under battery. I think it's bent down. Use small screwdriver bend upward to act as spring against battery. Reinstall battery and cover. That should do it! Works for 80% of transmitters. Otherwise you have to take it to a dealer and they'll put it on the digital tech and relearn your code to your moduel, but battery trick works most of the time. It gets bent down being in pockets and getting the button pushed. Let me know if this worked.

Speedo turn signals and stop lights quit working 2003 sportster 1200


On the new bikes, the speed and signal are in one circuit, and on some the horn is in there too. This is most likely going to be the fuse or relay for this circuit. I don't know their exact location, but your local dealership should be able to tell you. If the fuse and relay are good, then you're going to have a short in the wiring, probably a bare wire or a loose/broken ground. Rare, but occasionally, a switch on the controls will hang up and cause this also. Start with the fuse and relay, then go to the wiring and switches, and let me know.

All is dead.


I'm always hestitant to offer suggestions on the newer Harleys, my experience is all on 1999 and earlier carb bikes. But try the standard stuff first. No horn or lights leads me to check my connections and fuses starting with the ground for the battery. Torque em up a little and see if it helps

Motorcycle wont start


Check the battery connections, especially if you hear a click just before it goes dead. I know that on my bike, when this happens, the screws that hold the battery cables in place have backed out and not getting a good contact. You would think that with a bad contact that it would stay dead when you turn the key off then back on, but oddly, everything comes back on normally until I hit the starter button. Check the cables.
