    I have an 05 FLHTCSE2. When I turn the ignition on and flip kill switch to on the check eng light comes on, then off which is normal. But it comes on again and then goes back off. From what I have read here that means I have historical codes. I went to read my codes as per the instructions here. Switch on, off, on, off, and on. Then did the business with the turn signals, they flashed the appropiate amount of times. No codes. Did reset, still have the check eng light come on twice. Is this normal? Could I be doing something wrong?

    Thanks,

    Marty

    I had codes P1353 & P1356. Now what does that mean? What do I do next?

    Thanks,

    My eng runs but is hard to start when hot and seems like it runs on one cylinder. Where do I start. I have changed the plugs.

    Sounds like you have excessive secondary resistance.
    Replace the plug wires. Make absolutely sure the coil tower contacts are clean and polished before installing new plug wires. Use DE lube.
    You said you changed the plugs. I would not substitute. You must use the exact HD plug.

    You never mentioned anything about the bike starting poorly. A new crank sensor for P1353, P1356 codes?
