    I started my dyna and rode it out of the garage when I stoped in the driveway to let it warm up it quit running (not unusual) it always starts right back up but this time nothing. No lights no clicks. when I turn the key to acc the speedometer light comes on very dim but when I turn the key to start it there is no sound, no lights nothing. I took the seat off and checked the connections, everything seems fine. I would check the fuse box if I knew where it was. I am open to any ideas. thanks

    Your problem sounds more like a bad battery connection. They can "look" ok but not make good contact.

    Remove both connections (neg off first and on last) and wire brush both parts and reinstall them.

    Very common problem.
