    Hi, I have a 2006 Ultra and it has just started doing this. After you start it the check engine light comeon and stays on for 8 to 10 seconds and goes off. While the light is on the volt meter is around 11or 12 volts and then comes up and the light goes out and stays off. I checked for any codes and it shows clear. I started it with the seat off and a volt meter hooked up and it was at 12.86 when I started it and after about 8 or 10 sec it started coming up and with it reving 2500 or so it was reading 14 volts. After I shut it off the voltage keep dropping till it was back to 12.86. Do I have a battery going bad? Would input as I have a trip scheduled at the end of the week.

    Thanks Hoghunter

    Thanks for the input guys. I guess I better take it to the shop. I'll try cleaning the battery post first.

    Thanks Hoghunter
