    I'm having problems with my electric fuel pump not priming when I turn the start switch on to crank to my 09 Heritage Softail Classic.

    Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?????
    Its still under warranty but I''m 2 hrs from the shop and I'm wondering if its something I can take care of.

    It works sometimes and sometimes it doesn't.

    Have you check the fuse? Is there any trouble codes?

    Could be engine kill/run switch,, could be system relay,, could be fuel pump itself,, could be a connections in-between.

    Need more information from you.
    Bike won't start & just cranks? What do you finally do in order to start it. Once started, does bike run fine under all conditions. Are you using a meter to determine the pump is not priming or are you just going by the sound.
    What have you done to this point so far as far as testing.
