    Hi, could use a little advice. 2004 heritage stretched the bike and the wires. Engine turns over but wont start,noticed that the speedo wasnt working and found that a black and brown wire were crossed,fixed the problem now speedo works. I have power everywhere except from coil to spark plugs. I tried the ECM password learn twice with no luck. Could I have fried the ecm when I crossed the two wires? when I tried the password learn the directionals blinked several times. Sorry for long post just getting frustrated. Thanks for any help:dknow

    Have you checked fuses to see if any have failed. Also have you rechecked all connections changed, in regards of mod against a electrical wiring diagram???

    Could possibly be your crankshaft position senser. Is your bike fuel injected. If so, check the codes.

    I seriously doubt it.
    It's been asked already, but need to know if engine is injected or carb.

    The bike is injected I took the gas tank off to inspect the wires everything is fine when I tried the password learn still no spark. I have power to the coil when I tried the password learn the directionals blinked several times after the on off sequence of the ignition the engine light came on for a few seconds and then went off. the low fuel light stayed on because I have the gas tank off. Is it possible for the ecm to relearn the password if the gas tank is off the bike?

    I stretched all of the wires for the speedo and the fuel guage and the headlight I have power to everything that was stretched. I also unplugged the ignition to re route the wires and then plugged the wires back in,like I said the bike turns over fuses are good power to everything except no spark.

    Have you tried to run the diagnostics yet?

    Locate fuse labeled "Fuel Pump". Make sure it's good. With the fuse installed, set up your VOM so you can monitor the voltage at the test hole located right on the fuse or wedge a small piece of wire in the fuse holder.

    Place the bars Run/Kill switch in the Kill position.
    Turn ignition key to the ignition position. Now while watching the VOM, flip the run/kill switch to the RUN position. The VOM should read 12 volts for appox 4 seconds. After 4 seconds, the meter should read near zero volts. Now crank the engine. While cranking, the VOM should read 12 volts once again.

    Does this happen when you try it on your bike.
    Is the bike factory stock as far as the fuel and ignition system. Any electrical mods to the bike.
