2015 Electrical issues

Hello,

My road glide is having intermittent issues, dont know if they are all related or not.
1. The bike will not recognize that i have the key fob in my pocket and will ask for a pin number.
2. The bike will not start in gear with the clutch in.
3. The gear shift indication comes and goes, lately its gone more than it shows up.
4. Cruise control does not work when the gear shift indication isnt working.
5. Volume control does not work at times.

I have just under 2500 miles on the bike, no upgrades other than some led lights for turn signals. These issues began before the LED upgrades were done.

Anybody else seeing these issues? Thanks in advance.

Alan

Try pulling out the LED upgrade and put it back to stock and see if the problems go away, if the problems went away then the LED upgrades are the issue, if the problems still exist then take the bike in for warranty work.
If you take the bike in for warranty work with the LEDS in the bike then the HD dealer will blame the LED upgrades as the cause of the problems and charge you for the repairs.

It started before the upgrade but was very intermitent.

The first time it happened was within a day of riding in a soaking rain. I thought something got wet. I belong to a few facebook bagger pages and there are others with these same issues so I thought I would check here too.

The volume thing is a simple download with a up dated program. You dont have radio's anymore, you got computers on the Rushmore bikes.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Believe that the gear indicator going away with the clutch pulled in is standard. At least mine does it too. Wish it didn't think keeping it up could be beneficial.

From what I understand that's the way they work. Does not work off the transmission but calculates the gear based upon speed and rpm.

I had a similar problem with mine when new. I found the can bus wires in one of the connector was not push in the connector all the ways (not making good contact). The can bus system is a very robust system when installed right and a pain in the a$$ when not.

Check your clutch side switch cluster. It sounds like the bike doesn't know when the clutch lever is depressed or thinks its depressed. Did you change levers or do anything that caused you to take off the cluster? Possible bad connection somewhere.
