Customer Question

Hi! I have a 1996 FLHRI that when I turn the key and push to start, it cranks fine but does not start.
I do not hear the characteristic whine that occurs after turning on the key, but before pushing the start button, that I thought was the fuel pump pressurizing the engine feed.
Bad fuel pump?

it might be.

check the connector under the front end of your seat.

the fuel system relay provides power to the fuel pump, coil and injectors.

if you have power on the fuel pump connector but no pump noise, you need a new pump.

if you have no power on the connector, check the fuel system fuse and relay under the right side cover, next to the ecm fuse and relay.

let me know if you need more help.
