    Must have been a carb bike.

    Carb or EFI? Too low of an idle will some times cause this

    Specs on the 03 Electraglide says they were still carbed.

    At any time did the bike act-up with a problem. Check engine light was coming on & going off by itself without any issues to the bike itself.

    I believe a loose spark plug wire can cause that. Check the fit of the wire on the plugs. May have to crimp them just a tad.
