2.1

GENERAL

3.

Use the troubleshooting tables on the following pages to


diagnose and locate problems with malfunctioning or inoperative instruments and gauges. For wire connections at rear of
gauges, see Figure 2-1. Refer to the applicable wiring diagram at the back of this book for further assistance.

With the Multi-Meter, Part No. HD-35500A, set on the


RXI scale, measure the resistance of the sender unit.
Place one probe on the center terminal and the other
probe on a good ground.

4.

The meter must indicate approximately 7-95 ohms on


FLHT/C/U and FLTR models, 27-260 ohms on FLHR/C
models.
a.

If the fuel tank is full, the reading should be approximately 7-14 ohms on FLHT/C/U and FLTR models,
27-40 ohms on FLHR/C models.

b.

An empty tank should have a 74-95 ohm resistance


on FLHT/C/U and FLTR models, 240-260 ohm resistance on FLHR/C models.

DIAGNOSTICS
Fuel Level Gauge
When the Ignition/Light Key Switch is turned to IGNITION,
the fuel gauge is connected to + 12 vdc. Current flows
through the gauge and variable resistor in the fuel level
sender to ground. The sender unit float controls the amount
of resistance in the variable resistor.

Fuel Level Sender Test


1.

See the following chart and ground the applicable test


point.

2.

Turn the Ignition/Light Key Switch to IGNITION. If gauge


indicated FULL, gauge is functioning correctly. Proceed
to step 3. If gauge did not indicate FULL, proceed to step
4.

NOTE
If a very high resistance or infinity is indicated on the meter,
the sender may be open or not grounded. Verify that the
sender and fuel tank are grounded by placing one probe of
Multi-Meter on sender flange and the other probe on crankcase. Meter must indicate one ohm or less. Replace sender if
one ohm or less was present. If a higher resistance is
present, refer to applicable wiring diagram at rear of this manual and check sender ground circuit.

3.

If the oil pressure gauge indicates pressure but the low oil pressure light remains
on, proceed as follows:
a.

4.

No power to gauge.

Remove electrical connector from oil pressure sending unit. Place one
ohmmeter probe on indicator lamp terminal (closest to latch), place the other
probe on the crankcase. Meter must read zero ohms.

b.

Start the engine and run at a fast idle. The ohmmeter must read infinity.

c.

Replace the sending unit if the above meter readings are not obtained.

If the low oil pressure light functions correctly, but the pressure gauge does not,
then proceed as follows:
a.

Remove electrical connector from oil pressure sending unit. Turn the Ignition/
Light Key Switch to IGNITION. The gauge must read zero.

b.

Ground BN/GN wire terminal to crankcase. The gauge must read full scale 70
PSI.

c.

f1745x8x

NOTE
The performance (proper operation and sweeping action) of
the speedometer can be evaluated using the Speedometer
Tester (HD-41354). Before replacing the speedometer, see
Section 2.3 SPEEDOMETER PERFORMANCE CHECK.
The electronic speedometer consists of a speed sensor, reset
switch and speedometer unit.

Reset Switch
See Figure 2-2. Besides toggling between the odometer and
trip odometer displays, the reset switch is also used to identify the speedometer pulses per unit and to enter the diagnostic mode. In the diagnostic mode, the user can display the
fault codes stored in memory. The fault codes assist the user
in troubleshooting speedometer problems.

Diagnostic Mode
To enter the diagnostic mode, hold the reset switch in and
turn the Ignition/Light Key Switch from OFF to IGNITION. The
normal power-up sequence occurs before the diagnostic
mode is entered. Any diagnostic codes set during this powerup sequence also will be stored.
IMPORTANT NOTE
Holding the reset switch in for more than 5 seconds while in
the diagnostic mode will clear all set diagnostic codes from
memory.

H AR E R T I F I E D

The Hall-Effect speed sensor circuitry is triggered by the


teeth of the transmission mainshaft 4th gear. The sensor output is a series of pulses that are interpreted by the speedometer circuitry to control the position of the speedometer
needle and the odometers liquid crystal display (LCD). The
odometer mileage is permanently stored and is not lost when
electrical power is turned off or disconnected.

By momentarily pressing the reset switch, the user is able to


toggle between the odometer and trip odometer displays. To
zero the trip odometer, depress and hold the reset switch
while the odometer display is visible. The trip odometer mileage will then appear for approximately 2-3 seconds, after
which time the recorded figure is zeroed.

When in the diagnostic mode, all diagnostic codes are displayed in numerical sequence, from d01 to d10. As a code
appears (d02 for example), it will either be displayed as
d02SEt (code set) or d02CLr (code clear). A code clear
condition means that the fault condition does not exist (or that
it has been erased).
Write down the fault codes on a piece of paper. Note that the
fault codes indicate the start point for troubleshooting speedometer problems using the flow charts which follow. If multiple
fault codes are set, begin with the lowest code.
To troubleshoot fault code d01, d02, d05, d06 or d08, proceed
to the appropriate box marked by an asterisk in Speedometer Test 2B in this section. For codes d09 or d10, see the box
marked by an asterisk in Section 3.16 TURN SIGNAL
ERRORS, Turn Signal Error 1B (EFI) or Turn Signal Error 2C
(Carbureted).

Speedometer Sensor Test


If the speedometer is inoperative, but the backlighting and
odometer work, then the speedometer sensor may be faulty.
To test the speedometer sensor as described below, a test
harness is required.
Fabricate the test harness by splicing together two Deutsch 3-place socket housings (72113-94BK) and one
Deutsch 3-place pin housing (72103-94BK). See Figure
2-6. Use six inch lengths of 18 gage wire each 6.0 inches
(15 cm) long.
