Question CRUISE CONTROLL. Quiz for the today?

Does the 06 RG have a STARTER LOCKOUT SWITCH? It keep the bike from starting in gear without pulling in the clutch. Also it work with the cruise controll. Why, I ask this question. Is my cruise controll is do working. I ran a test on it. From 4 thur 8 pass. But 9 fail. Here the test below.

You can also test the switch functions:

Easiest way to check all dropout fucntions of your cruise control.

1. bike off, run/stop to run
2. push set/resume to set and hold.
3 with cruise on/off switch to on, turn on bike
4. cruise indicator light should be green, release set switch, light should turn red.
5. push to resume and release, light should turn green then red
6. push throttle closed and release, light should turn green then red
7. push rear brake pedal and release, light should turn green then red
8. pull front brake lever, light should turn green then red
9. on models with a clutch/neutral starter lockout, pull clutch lever, light should turn green then red

whichever switch does not turn the light green, is your bad one.

if light will not turn green at all and you have followed ALL directions and tried multiple times, your set/resume switch is bad.

If light stays green even after releasing set switch, one of the dropout switches is stuck closed, usually the roll off throttle switch. unplug this and try again.

make sure brake light will not turn on without using brakes (wobbly brake lever, stuck rear brake light switch etc.)

Try starting the bike while it is in gear, if the bike won't start then pull in the clutch if the bike starts you have your answer.

I Did the Test and it all Worked Correctly

I did all the steps and had the correct green red, red green. All the switches work correctly so that is not the problem. Cruise control won't engage and I can't see any fuses that are involved with the cruise system. All fuses are ok anyway. Checked everyone of them. Is my next stop at the HD shop? Any suggestions? Mine is and 09 RG but still diagnosed exactly the same as this thread. Thanks, JCL

You have to have a little slack in the throttle cables for the cruise to activate properly since that is not a TBW setup. How much, maybe someone else can answer that. Loosen up on it a little and try it. Can't hurt.

I didn't take much away from the OP, but no, the 06 does not have a starter lockout switch. Hit "start" with the bike in gear and the clutch out and it will jump.

Mine's Fixed

Even though mine checked out ok by me, when I took it in, it was the rear brake light switch. Switch replaced and problem solved. Thanks for the suggestions and information. TXFLTR

Cruise control?????

I have a 2004 pewter Road Glide and I ran the diagnostics on my cruise control, it gave me 223: speed sensor input. Does that mean I need to change my speed sensor that runs down into the transmission on the right hand side (the one that is held in with one allen head screw)?
