Harley Error Codes

Question I have a problem with my 2006 Heritage Classic. While on a ride today when I was just cruising it would just quit running. I would pull over, sit for a few minutes & then it would start. Rode for 4 or 5 miles & it stops again. Sat for a couple minutes & it started. Happened I think 6 times & finally made it home. Any ideas on what to look for? Thanks for any help.

Answer First have to determine if it is an electrical issue, or a problem with your fuel system. When the m/c cuts out; does that headlight stay on, or off? That is important to know. Check to see if your bike is storing any Harley error codes. Might find a good clue as to what is going wrong.

    My 09 Electra Glide kept coding and dying. Throttle position sensor was tripping due to a sticky butterfly. Cleaned w/WD40 and left a light film. Also cleaned the K&N air filter that had been oiled to excess creating the problem.

    I have four codes PO131 PO132 PO151 PO152 which are low and high ox sensor front and rear does this mean they need to be replaced. I was told the Ethenol in fuel is clogging injection systems I tried some Luca fuel injector additive did not seem to help.

      Hi, Kevin. We suggest clearing the codes. See how long until they come back. If they do, install a Power Commander. It will come with O2 eliminators.

      Here’s some info about that for you.

      d01 is the Speed sensor output shorted low,
      d02 is Speed sensor power output shorted high or open,
      d03 and d04 are not used,
      d05 is Speed sensor return shorted high,
      d06 is Speed sensor return shorted low,
      d07 not used,
      d08 is Speedometer power overvoltage,
      d09 is Speed output shorted high and
      d10 is Speed output shorted low or open.
      If the code has CLr added (d01CLr) which means clear no problems
      The CAL 03 will be the last one Calibration 3=Domestic.

        I don’t understand what the last part your talking about when you say
        Calibration 3=Domestic I have a HD 2000 Electra Glide Ultra Class fuel injection but it has no O2 SENIORS when I first start it. It dies after a few sec of running and will do the a lot unless I give it gas for a few mins and it gets good and hot it will run fine but seems to be ideled to low I run check engine codes and d01 to d10 have CLr at the end of all of them then I get the CAL03 I did the mileage test and got code 41 and 56 on it any help would be appreciated very much and thanks for your time

          Hi, Denver. Code 56 is-Crank Position Sensor/Cam Position Sensor Signal Error 41 is a ranking # and indicates check engine light open/low.
          These do not have anything to do with poor idle. 1st make sure that your intake is correctly sealed. Very common problem with your Magnetti Marelli assembly is the IAC sensor. Would look into replacing. https://www.fixmyhog.com/video-index/

    Hello, I have a 2006 Road King. 96cc. The Last 3 Times I rode it , it started sputtering real bad. I could wind it out and it would mostly clear up, but at low speed would act up, and would not idle. The very last time while close to my house it completely quit. I checked battery and charging system before I rode it to try to eliminate bad battery/alternator and all looked good there. I pulled air filter and housing off and intake was very sooty (black rich soot). I put new plugs in also, and still not cranking. Could this be clogged fuel injectors? How can I pull code if not?

      Codes are helpful when diagnosing an issue with your bike.
      Sometimes codes can come up from a simple mis-start, a small cough or backfire. A stored code does not necessarily mean that you have an issue that needs attention.
      We may be able to give you advise on “fixxing” The codes; but you will have to explain what issue you are having with your bike, if any.

      If you are running a Thunder Max ECM and have this code, would not worry about it if there are no performance issues.
      If, however, your check engine light is staying on because of the code, we suggest contacting Thunder Max direct.
      They have excellent customer service.
      Hopefully they will be able to help.
      Clear the code and see if it comes back.

      We do not see a code #P0017.
      Could you mean #P0107?
      If so, that would be a MAP sensor code.
      P1003- System Relay contacts, open.
      P1353- fr. Cyl, no combustion.
      We would recommend clearing these codes, then riding to see if any if these reoccur.
      A no combustion, or a possible map code could be caused by a simple false start or small backfire.

      Hello,

      Could be many things. Hard to say without actually seeing the m/c for ourselves.
      The issue is obviously directly related to the accident.
      Start by checking for possible stored diagnostic trouble codes. Fairly certain that you will have at least one code that will lead you in the right direction.
      Make sure that the damaged wiring was correctly repaired and that everything was repaired. When a harness is damaged in the way you describe, damage may not only occur at the obvious break. You have to test for continuity at each end of the repaired wire before deeming it as repaired.

      Dear Todd,

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

      P1003 is a system relay code.
      Would not hurt to replace this relay. It is inexpensive.
      The other codes are front & rear injectors.
      You need to determine if your issue is electrical or fuel related.
