2016 Road Glide factory battery tender lead, no voltage
I haven't ridden my road glide in over month. I was over seas and then came down with a virus on my way back, so its been a while. I had it on one of my battery tenders (a known good one) and thought it was keeping it charged.
Went to start it tonight, the stereo comes on and I hear the fuel pump run but not enough juice to start (just clicked when I tried to start it). I check the battery tender (Deltran brand) and the red light is flashing, which means the tender is not seeing a connection to the battery. I get out my Fluke multimeter and connect to the factory battery tender lead on the bike and no voltage. I take the seat off and measure voltage right at the battery and its around 11 volts. I also have my own SAE battery tender lead on the battery that I use to run power to my tour pak. I disconnected it from the tour pack, connect my battery tender to my lead and now I have a steady red light on the tender, meaning its properly connected and charging.
I checked all the fuses, no blown fuses.
I've been around electrical enough, don't understand why I'm not measuring any voltage at the factory battery tender lead unless its bad? Only thing I can think of, either one of the wires is bad in the lead or wherever it connects to the main harness it has a bad connection or broken wire.
