Well whenever you have you an electrical problem you always want to start with the easiest first which would be your battery. I would say if you plan on riding for a while that you really should run to sears or a home depot and get yourself a craftsman or whatever brand you make like volt/ohms meter. You battery shouldnt be under about 12.2 volts at sitting still. Ideally a harley davidson battery should be at 12.8 volts. Now when the engine is running then i would say you should be anywhere around 13 volts to about a little under 15 volts which normally sportsters run at the lower spectrum of those numbers. i would try that first to see where it leads you with. other then that it could be your starter relay which is a in your fuse box. that and if its carbed you might want to crack the handle a few times to get her going. If it starts but keeps cranking it might need new plugs or it could be the ignition system. but granted go with the cheapest first.

From what it sounds like, the laser lens in your cd player is having trouble reading discs. Is it just one cd or all? assuming it's all. you make want to get a cd lens cleaner disc....it's basically a cd with little bristles on the bottom designed to 'sweep away' the dust that accumulates on the lens. However, should you do that a few times (i usually give it about five good runs) and it still doesnt work, try another disc and listen closely for any sort of 'out of place' clicking noises....especially a monotonous repetitively click or ticking.... that usually indicates that the lens carriage has somehow jammed or come off track and needs to be replaced or refitted. refitting them on the track isnt difficult and once you open it up it's pretty self explanatory if you're mechanically inclined. Hope this helps.
The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over time it becomes weak until it can no longer play. Buy a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions, this may add more life to the unit, if not! cheaper to replace the stereo than replace the assembly.
Hello Insert a lens cleaning disc into the system, and play it at least three times, by eject it out and reinsert in each time. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your Cd player should be replaced with same type and number. OK.
If you can disassemble the CAP(disc holder) and place it on the disc while it is on the spindle and at the same time push the (hidden)lid switch you will see the lazer"s lens move up and down while trying to focus on the disc. If the lazer see's the disk it will tell the motor to turn. If it dosn't see the disc it will not turn the motor. Some model will kick the disc to spin a little while trying to see the disc. This type of player can be tricked into seeing the disc if you spin the disc a little by hand when the lazer's lens is moving up and down. At that point in time it might see the disc and take over the motor and spin up to normal speed. If the disc is an illeagal copy sold as a original the quality of the disc could be the cause. If the player is very clean (no small hairs stuck to the glue that holds the lens in place) (never clean with a cotton swab, use a shammie swab with rubbing alcohol or isopropal 99%) the problem could also be that the lazer is just not strong enough and the whole lazer-motor assemble should be replaced. Older units could use 1 drop of light motor oil on the motor shaft at the bearing to help start the motor when the system kicks the disc to spin. If the player reads the disc at the time you manually spin the disc maybe a good cleaning and oiling is all that is needed. The disc spins clockwise. if the disk spins counter clockwise replace the whole assemble. Maybe simpler, just give the disc a good clockwise spin and quickly close the door and push play while the disc is still spinning. if it starts, there you go. Don't use caned air on the lazer assemble. it will blow the dirt further into the lazer mechanism under the lens and make matters worse! Good luck!!
Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with your model, but the way it is supposed to work, is when you load a CD, you will see the laser lense move up and down a few times as the laser attempts to focus on the disk, and as well you will see the spin motor spin a few times. If the spin motor is going all the time, and the driver chip has been changed, then there is either a circuit problem giving the "on" pin of the driver ic a signal to spin at all times, or the microprocessor that runs the Cd has failed and is sending signal to spin constantly. Unless this is a hugely expensive blaster, I would replace it given the type of problem you are having.
