    ultra 150 starting issue

    I have a 2001 ultra 150 that is having a starting issue.

    the battery is fully charged and i just replaced the starting relay (in the box by the battery).

    When i push the start button i can hear a relay click that sounds like it is coming from under the dash area but the starter relay does not click. occasionally however it will turn over.

    any ideas on what the issue is? I want to get out there.


    this was moved from the FAQ section. thought it would be a better fit here. sorry.

    Check all wiring harness connectors. They can get moisture in them and corrode.

    there are only two connectors for that box correct? one under the seat on the left side and the other by the box in the rear?

    Sounds like the starter is bad.

    Offhand, I couldn't tell you.

    If it was the starter would the starting relay still click over? Because that seems to be the problem . The relay only clicks occasionally but when it does the starter does turn over.

    If the relay only clicks sometimes, you need to find out why. It should click every time you punch the button. If it cranks, that pretty much rules out the starter. I'd bet the switch or the starter relay is bad, or a bad connection between them.

    well i don't think its the relay because i just put a new one in. when you say switch are you talking about the one on the handle bars?

    Its not the solinoid or the starter. I think its the relay box up front. The one that's all black and I think it also holds some trim relays. Has enyone else had this go bad?
