Customer Question
2011 Fatboy Harley, Battery...

2011 Fatboy Harley, Battery died. Replaced with correct new battery. Dash readout indicates enter code. Is this a dealer only service? Bike is in outstanding condition otherwise. only 11,000 miles. I use a battery tender. I don't ride as much as in the past, maybe 50 miles a month.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

It does have a Harley mechanical warranty.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '11 motorcycle?

No. I don't find anything about this anywhere. I am thinking it is like the new car dealers. Only they can do this.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your bike yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes.

you need to perform the "password *****".

you can find it on the internet.

connect a battery charger to the bike before you start. it takes around 1/2 hour with the bike setting with the ignition on.

if it doesn't take, you need to perform it again. all steps must be completed in a specific amount of time and in the correct order.
