    SO my engine light comes on this morning on the 25 mile ride to work. An 08 Electra Glide Classic with 6800 miles. I bought it with 5000 and the HD dealer said they did the 5000 mile service. THe owners manual say "see your HD dealer" go figure!
    Any help???? Thanks

    Why? Unless you don't actually have cruise control on your bike. The control module is speaking to you.:p

    The electrical service manual will take you right to the cause but "input High" usually means the trigger or input sensor wire/connector is open or has an intermittent connection. Inputs to modules usually have what are called "pull up resistors" in them which will force the input "hi" (+5v) when nothing is attached to them.

    In your case, an input would mean something like the vehicle speed sensor (an input) was disconnected electrically (even for a second) which would force the module input to go "Hi" as a result of the pull up resistor.
