    I've recently changed out my cables (idel, throttle and clutch) for my 16" Apes. Now that I have finshed installing and made some adjustments on the cables, The engine light on the bike comes on now...right after warming up. What could that mean? I have 500 miles on the bike.

    I refilled the transmission...but I didn't check the Primary YET. Could that be the problem?

    This seems to be pretty common occurrence according to some of the folks that write to magazine techs looking for advice.
    However according to some other folks who had the same problem, it has to do with the sequence of the controls you use to start your Fatboy, the situation most commonly explained is similar to a computer (pc). For example have you ever turned off a computer without using the start menu? You get an improper shut down message from Bill Gates.
    When you turn your bike on with the switch on the gas tank from off to ignition, the computer starts a series of diagnostic checks,especially on a fuel injected model.
    The order of control usage is supposed to go in this order, according to the owners manual also.
    1.) Turn on the ignition with the switch on the consol on the fuel tank, wait until your lights on the instrument cluster go out,
    2.) Turn on the on/off switch next to the throttle. (On my FLHRSI, when you do this the check engine light comes on and the fuel pump feeds the efi system.) Wait until that light goes out. When the light goes out it is finished doing the series of checks.
    3.) Push the starter switch on the handle bars.
    I do this every time and have never had a problem, however, I have a buddy that has a Heritage Softail Classic, he does not use this routine consistently and occasionally has this issue.

    In addition the tech articles state, that if you use the routine listed above after a few times the computer will clear itself out (after 10 starts). Here is the real puzzling matter, if you take it most dealers with this issue, it will not register any "error codes" on the dealer diagnostic equipment. This is just what I have read from other owners experience.

    I posted this elsewhere but here goes again...
    Hope it helps you out.

    The IM (instrument module) is capable of displaying DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes).
    Speedometer Self Diagnostics: The speedometer is capable of displaying and clearing speedometer, tachometer, TSM/TSSM and ICM/ECM Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC).

    1- Turn Ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch is to Run.

    2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.

    3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting sould illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word “diag” should then appear.

    4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.

    5 - Each letter represents an area of the diagnostics module. The module that is flashing is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter (module) to the next, you push the odometer reset button one time. (from P to S to SP to t and back to P, etc.)
    P = ECM/ICM (Electronic Control Module [EFI] / Ignition Control Module [Carbureted])
    S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
    SP = speedometer
    T = tachometer

    6 - To get the DTC within an area of diagnostics, push and hold the odometer reset button in for 5 seconds and release. If there are any DTC’s the code will be displayed or the word “none” will appear if there are no DTC’s. Push the odometer reset button again to view additional codes if they exist.

    7 - Record the codes.

    8 - If DTC’s are not to be cleared, Press and release the odometer reset button. Part number of module will be displayed.
    NOTE: To determine if a code is current or historic, clear the displayed code by pushing in and holding the odometer reset button ( longer than 5 seconds) until 'clear' comes up. Release the odometer reset button. Turn OFF the ignition switch. Run your bike and shut it down then recheck the DTC’s again by repeating steps 1 to 9. If the code is current it will reappear.

    9 – Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.

    10 – Turn Ignition switch to OFF.

    2006 models with 02 sensors (Dynas)

    P0131 Front 02 sensor lean for any length of time
    P0151 Rear 02 sensor lean for any length of time
    Above codes can also be set if 02 sensor fails.

    AFR – Air Fuel Ratio

    ATS – Air Temperature Sensor

    BAS – Bank Angle Sensor

    CCM – Cruise Control Module

    CKP – Crank Position Sensor. The CKP generates an “AC signal” which is sent to the ECM where it is used to reference engine position (TDC) and speed. Home position established by taking readings off the 22 teeth on the alternator rotor.

    DTC – Diagnostic Trouble Codes

    ECM – Electronic Control Module. (The Computer) Computes the spark advance for proper ignition timing and fuel control based on sensor inputs (from CKP, MAP & TP sensors) and controls the low-voltage circuits for the ignition coils and injectors. The dwell time for the ignition coil is also calculated in the microprocessor and is dependent upon battery voltage. The programmed dwell feature gives adequate spark at all speeds.

    ECT – Engine Coolant Temperature. Sensor also controls the cooling fan relay that provides 12 Vdc to the fans.

    EFI – Electronic Fuel Injection

    EFP – Electronic Fuel Pump

    ET – Engine Temperature sensor

    FI – Fuel Injectors

    FPR – Fuel Pressure regulator

    IAC – Idle Air Control actuator

    IAT – Intake Air Temperature sensor

    ISS – Ion Sensing System…detonation detection

    MAP – manifold Absolute Pressure sensor. The MAP sensor monitors the intake manifold pressure (vacuum) and sends the information to the ECM. The EMC then adjusts the spark and fuel-timing advance curves for optimum performance.

    TP – Throttle Position Sensor

    TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)

    VE – Volume Efficiency

    VSS – Vehicle Speed Sensor. Used as an input for idle speed control
  4. I have this info for 99-01, does this info pertain to 02 and on? thnx, Les
