2008 fxdl will not do anything but flash various lights

If it is the anti-theft system that only thing you can do is take it to the dealer. The dealers kind of have you over a barrel in a case like this.

Bike starts up fine when
If by "back fires" you are talking about the engine spitting back through the intake, this is because the engine's fuel mixture is too lean for the conditions. If the engine is cold, this is common. If it's doing it once the engine reaches full operating temperature, it's an indication that he fuel air mixture is too lean. They often come from the factory jetted or tuned to run very lean so that the bikes can meet the EPA's emission regulations. Take the bike to a performance oriented shop that has a dynometer and an exhaust gas analyzer. Have them run it up and check the fuel air mixture and they can advise you what you need to do to make your bike run better and cooler.
