How can you check crank position sensor?


1 - Turn the key in the ignition to the "Off" position. Turn the "Run/Stop" switch to "Run." Push and hold the odometer "Reset" button. Hold the "Reset" button and do not release it yet.
2 - Turn the key to "Ignition," but don't start the engine. Release the odometer "Reset" button. Wait for the odometer to indicate the bike is in diagnostic mode by displaying "Diag." Push the odometer reset button and then release it when you see the "P" in the menu selection flashing.
3 - Wait for the bike to complete the diagnostic of the electronic control module and the ignition control module. Write down the codes that are displayed after the diagnostic is complete. Code PO374 indicates a failed or faulty crank position sensor due to a synchronization error.

Lights will not turn off


First you need to isolate the the key switch by unplugging it and test for continuity in the off position witch would mean the switch is bad.

Do i have to have the gray wire from the start/stop switch tied into the white and black wire to utilize a starter button?


Well, I'm not sure about the colors because you didn't tell me what year model bike you're working on. But, in the earlier models, up to 1999, the power for the start switch came directly off the "Run/Stop" switch. This is designed to keep you from running your battery down because the run/stop switch is in the "stop" position. If you run/stop switch is in the stop position, the starter doesn't have any "fire" to it and it won't turn the engine thereby telling you that you have something wrong. The old Shovelheads had a "Run/ Stop" switch in 1973, when it was in the "stop" position, I saw many batteries run completely down trying to start the bike. Harley rewired the switch so that the "Run/ Stop" switch had to be in the "Run" position in order to get the starter to work.

Good Luck

After starting my Roadstar in neutral, as soon as I put it in gear, it dies. It reacts to the shift, not the clutch. Is it electrical? Mechanical? I need help troubleshooting. thanks.


With the engine off, put it in gear and pull the clutch lever. If the bike rocks freely back and forth, the clutch is releasing correctly and eliminates mechanical problems. The only possible electrical problem would be a wiring fault involving a gear position indicator (if the bike has such a thing). If it does have such an indicator, find the switch (on either side of the transmission case) and disconnect the wiring (plug?) Try the bike again. If it now keeps running, I'd suspect some form of cross wiring short within the wiring harness. If it does not run at all, then the bike probably won't start and run except in neutral--hook up the switch again. Did this problem start suddenly, or after a repair of some sort???

2008 Street Glide - Reduced heat rear cylinder shut-down feature


this is explained in the owners manual. 3 conditions have to be met in order for the Engine Idle Temperature Management System to work. 1. speed must be below 2k/hr 2. engine temp high(exactly what i forget) 3. operator must roll back throttle to negative position until "cruise on" light is green. This indicates that the EITMS is on. Vehicles are delivered from the factory with the EITMS disabled. It can be enabled or disabled by the rider using the following procedure; 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position and push the engine OFF/RUN switch on the right handlebar to the RUN position(do not start the motorcycle) 2. Push the throttle to the roll-off position and hold 3. After approximately 3 seconds the cruise indicator lamp will either flash green(EITMS enabled) or red (EIMTS disabled) 4. repeat the procedure as needed to enable or disable EITMS
