Goes dead when you drive

I should normally ask you for the identification of your vehicle, but your question is so generic, I would like to throw a couple of answers at you first. I have very easily addressed this problem 50 times in the last 50 years.
1) Problem with a loose or corroded battery terminal. Though it might appear tight, or clean enough, either looseness or corrosion can cause the car to die after it runs.
A good cleaning ( both the post and the INSIDE of the terminal are required) and tightening, which includes cleaning and oiling/greasing the screw.
2) Loose or slipping alternator belt. It can look fine, but can slip as you drive, causing the battery to go dead.
God bless your efforts.

Loose Carburator

If the carb mounting screws are tight then it is likely that the entire cylinder assembly is loose ( this is common) and the cylinder to crankcase screws need to be loc-tited and tightened.
If the carb mounting screws just spin and dont tighten then they are stripped. The intake block is plastic so you can either try over sized screws ( first try a screw that is the same diameter but a bit longer) or replace the intake block.

How to remove starter from 2008 dyna lox rider . I have already un bolted it and removed wires but it is loose but will not come out yet .

  1. Removal
    • 1 Remove the seat retainer screw from the seat mounting bracket using a ratchet and Allen driver. Lift the rear of the seat up and slide the seat toward the rear of the bike to disengage the seat from the frame and remove it from the bike.
    • 2 Don a face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 3 Remove the battery cover retaining screw from the bottom of the battery cover using a ratchet and Allen driver. Tilt the top of the battery cover out and lift the cover to disengage it from the battery tray.
    • 4 Remove the negative battery cable from the battery using a 10 mm wrench.
    • 5 Remove the positive battery cable from the battery using a 10 mm wrench.
    • 6 Unhook and remove the battery strap. Remove the battery from the tray. Remove face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 7 Remove the two top battery tray screws from the frame above the battery tray and the bottom battery tray screw from the inside of the battery tray using a ratchet and Allen driver.
    • 8 Remove the battery tray from the bike while guiding the battery cables through the holes in the battery tray.
    • 9 Remove the starter end-cover nut, using a ratchet and socket, and pull the end-cover off the starter.
    • 10 Pull back the protective rubber boot off the positive cable terminal. Using a wrench, remove the positive cable nut and then lift the ring terminal off the starter terminal stud. Unplug the solenoid electrical connector from the solenoid.
    • 11 Remove the two starter retaining bolts from the starter using a ratchet and Allen driver. Pull the starter off the bike. Remove and discard the starter housing O-ring.
    • 12 Inspect the two split-ring bushings in the inner primary case where the starter mounts for slack or looseness. Remove the split-ring bushings and spread them to provide a slight interference fit in the primary housing. Push the split-ring bearings back into position.
    • 13 Install a new starter housing O-ring on the starter assembly. Install the starter assembly on the bike.
    • 14 Apply one drop of Loctite Threadlocker 243 to the treads of the starter retaining bolts. Install the starter retaining bolts and washers and tighten them to 24 to 27 foot-pounds using a foot-pound torque wrench and Allen driver.
    • 15 Install the positive cable ring terminal and nut on the starter terminal stud. Tighten the nut to 65 to 85 inch-pounds using an inch-pound torque wrench and socket. Push the protective boot securely over the positive cable terminal. Plug the solenoid electrical connector into the solenoid.
    • 16 Position the starter end-cover on the starter and install the nut, using a ratchet and socket.
    • 17 Place the battery tray in position while guiding the battery cables through the holes in the tray.
    • 18 Install the upper and lower battery tray screws and washers. Tighten the screws to 96 to 120 inch-pounds, using an inch-pound torque wrench and Allen driver.
    • 19 Guide the battery cables into the recesses at the upper corners of the battery tray.
    • 20 Don face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 21 Place the battery in the battery tray with the terminals facing out. Snap the battery strap in position.
    • 22 Install the positive battery cable and cable bolt. Tighten the bolt to 60 to 70 inch-pounds using an inch-pound torque wrench and socket.
    • 23 Install the negative battery cable and cable bolt. Tighten the bolt to 60 to 70 inch-pounds, using an inch-pound torque wrench and socket.
    • 24 Remove the face shield and rubber gloves.
    • 25 Apply a light coat of corrosion retardant grease or petroleum jelly to the terminals.
    • 26 Install the battery cover and screw. Tighten the screw securely using a ratchet and Allen driver.
    • 27 Place the seat on the bike. Lift the rear of the seat and slide it forward to engage the seat tab in the frame slot. Lower the rear of the seat and install the seat retainer screw through the seat mounting bracket. Tighten the seat retainer screw securely using a ratchet and Allen driver. Lift up on the seat to make certain that it is mounted securely on the bike.

Cant get the positive cable to tighten flush with the battery

I can try to help, but it depends on the type of terminal/connector. If it's a "post type" terminal, where the lead "post" sticks out on the top or side of the battery and the connector (with the wire) is a round hole with a tightening bolt/nut through the side, try loosening the bolt further and lightly tapping the connector onto the terminal. If it is a screw in type terminal, where the terminal is the round hole on the battery, and the connector is a screw, there may be some dirt, corrosion, etc. inside the hole that will need to be cleaned out. Also, the threads of the terminal may have been stripped out if you accidentally cross-threaded the screw or tightened it too much, which is VERY easy to do with lead connections. Lead is very soft and strips out easily. Hope this helps.

The front box sparked and and short circuited the waster heater. what needs to be done?

Hopefully all you have is a loose terminal connection. Turn the circuit breaker off, open the thermostat cover plate and inspect the wiring connections with the terminals. If loose or disconnected, simply reconnect and tighten. You may want to apply a drop or two of servicable thread locking liquid (Loc-Tite) to the terminal screw threads before tightening. Also check for compromised wire insulation or a broken off wire. Turn on the breaker and wait for it to heat up. If it does not, you probably have a bad element or thermostat.

While riding the bike shuts down like when you turn off the ignition, it lasts just seconds and comes back to life..

Hi There,
9 out of 10 times it is loose battery terminals, corroded terminals. - Clean and tighten.

Test your volatge regulator by attaching a voltmeter to you battery:
With bike off battery meter should read 12.50 +/- .25 volts - anything lower-battery needs charge
With Bike on at idle meter should read 12.80 +/- .25 volts - anything lower-voltage regulator bad
Rev to 2000 rpm meter should read 13.75 - 14.80 volts - anything lower-voltage regulator bad

Before replacing the voltage regualtor make sure the groung wire from the voltage regulator is tight and recheck with the meter.

Check your ignition wire screws, one may have vibrated loose. - Inspect / check for tightness
Check that wires connected to coil are tight .

Most of the time its just a loose connection. Find and tighten.

When people call me, there is no sound; its on loud and normal or even vibrate. but i can only see people are calling me, not hear

You need to check the speaker pads and terminals. Most probably it is soiled, oxidized or loose. Do the following:
  1. Press the tightly the area where the speaker is located while playing a music or tone.
  2. Re-tighten the screws if found loose.
  3. Disassemble the phone.
  4. Lift the terminals and clean the pads.
  5. Check the continuity of the speaker terminals.
  6. If no continuity, replace it.

Battery connections loose

I don\´t think they left it loose. I had the same problem with my 2005 after I bought it new. Only it was the positive terminal that came loose. I tightened it as tight as I could with a screw driver and after a bit of riding it came loose again. After quite a few instances, I finally put lock washers on both screws and used a six pointsocket to tighten them. Battery is pretty easy to get out. Drops out the bottom of the box after you take a couple of screws out. I left the cover off after I had to get into it a few times. I thought it was a pretty stupid place for a battery though.
