Harley Error Codes Info

Question I checked the DTC’s on my bike I come up with 3 Harley error codes 2 in the BCM 62151 and 62169 and the other in the Speedo 61210. I would you know what the numbers mean. I have been looking online but can’t find these numbers anywhere.


Via Email


Answer The first code is b2151 (not 62151). Rear turn signal output, open. The 2nd code would be b2169. Running light output overload. b1210 is fuel sender short / fuel gauge circuit open. The b at the beginning of the code refers to the BTM – body control module. These codes can be caused by excessive moisture. Or, if you have changed bulbs recently; go back and inspect the sockets for correct positioning. Also, verify that your brake light is functioning correctly. Front and rear.

      Dear Randy,

      Thank you for your patience. In regards to your question-

      P0444 – purge solenoid open/low
      A purge solenoid is only on California models and some international models.
      If this m/c does not have a purge solenoid, the ECM is improperly programmed and should be reprogrammed (per HD 2012 Softail electrical manual).
      Otherwise, possible causes for this code:
      Purge solenoid malfunction
      BCM malfunction
      ECM malfunction
      Short to ground in signal circuit (light green wire with black tracer)
      P1655 – automatic compression release solenoid low/open
      Again; if m/c does not have auto compression releases, the issue may be with ECM program
      Possible causes for this code:
      ACR solenoid malfunction
      Open in ACR control circuit
      Open in system relay circuit
      ECM malfunction
      Short to ground in ACR control circuit
      * A red wire with a green tracer powers, both, the releases and purge solenoid.
      However, this wire also powers injectors, coil, O2 sensors, & more.
      Would not suspect an issue within this wire. Would likely have issues with more (or all) sensors on this circuit.

    I get a B2161 on my DTC, however; I can’t seem to find the problem. I thought maybe the bulb was malfunctioning. Any Ideas as to what I can do next to fix this problem? I’m desperate, I have no brake lights and I know how dangerous this can be to myself and other drivers.

    I have a 2016 street bob fxdb and won’t start. The diagnostic code I get is b2121. I have look into different forums and threads haven’t found a solution to my problem. My problem started after it suddenly shutdown and replace the battery and work for the reminder of the day. Now it won’t start.
