    Continued from: Electrical Problem with My 98 Fatboy



    I replaced one relay underneath the seat, but the bike still has the same problems consisting of no speedometer, no brakelights, no horn, and no blinkers. Also I found a ground wire that was broken and I fixed that. In addition, whenever I turn the bike on to ignition position, I here a clicking noise come from one of the fuses. However, when I tested the fuses with a TEST LIGHT they were fine.



    Thank you,



    Brad

If you have the electric speedo, then it's one problem. There is a relay that all three of these go through in order to work. I'll bet you popped the relay. I don't know exactly where the relay is, but your local dealer can give you the location. If you have the manual speedo, the it's two probs. First, the cable to the speedo gear on the front hub has most likely pulled out a bit, and second, the same relay as before, only the speedo isn't routed through it.

    Is there a bare wire around the fuse that is causing the clicking? If not, I would go ahead and replace it, just to be safe. Also, does this have the electric speedo?



    This still sounds like a relay problem, but it's odd that you can't find it. You might try taking a look inside the hand controls, it could also be that a wire has come loose or a switch is hung up and canceling everything out.

The speedometer does not work


On older cars there was a cable that ran to the speedometer and it was often necessary to replace the cable. Newer cars are electronic and part of the computer body module computer. According to Buzzle.com: " Cars produced after 1990 are usually equipped with speed sensors, which may crash and cease to transmit speed readings to the speedometer. A more serious problem could be a faulty speedometer head, which needs expert diagnosis.
Read more at Buzzle: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/speedometer-not-working-properly.html " You will find the speed sensor behind the engine, above the trans-axle.
Remove the connecting hose, air cleaner and electrical connector from above the sensor.
With help of a 10 mm socket, remove bolts keeping the sensor in place. Then, twist the sensor to take it out.
Attach a new O-ring to the sensor and clean the sensor flange and exterior sensor housing before re-installation.
Fix the new sensor in place and tighten bolts around it. Reattach the hose, air cleaner and electrical connector on to the sensor.

Does the heater an A/C work ? If so the fuse isn't the problem .
Speedometer
The speedometer is a road indicator. The vehicle speed sensor (VSS) is a permanent magnet generator which is located on the transaxle. The VSS sends an input to the PCM whenever the transaxle differential carrier turns. The PCM then buffers the VSS signal. The PCM transmits the VSS signal to the following components at 4000 pulses/mile through CKT 817:
• The instrument cluster
• The cruise control module
• The radio (uplevel)
The instrument cluster uses the input in order to indicate the vehicle speed on the speedometer.
Instrument Cluster Indicators
The BCM controls the instrument cluster indicators through the SPI serial data communication bus. Refer to Body Control Module System Check in Body Control System.

Turn signals and brake lights an horn stopped working on 2004 2004 harley roadking


Hi, Rick before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.
