    Disconnected the battery to hook up heated gloves on my 05 Road King
    had a loose negitive terminal, secured it. Went to start, got the fuel pump
    initialized, got lights, accessories work, no nothing when I hit the start button
    turned the engine switch on, messin with the key fob ?

    Those push buttons are a life saver. I f yo got nothing happening I would make sure the wire that goes from the battery to the starter is on and the wire from the start button shows 12 volts when you hit the start button, start simple, it worked before right, so maybe something mistakenly did not get hooked back up. Good luck.

    Recheck the battery connections. Loosen them and move/clean them and try again. A bad connection will give you other things but no cranking.

    Always remove the neg first and install last.

    Glider did hit on the point, if bad connection, one would have expected "weak" response, not a no response, so simple check as Drumguy said should put a handle on things...don't forget fundamentals...fuses and that loose terminal did not happen to be on the starter, as if you overtighten it the internal wiring could spin around and have grounded out AND blown a fuse...

    I think theres 2 ground wires, check to see if you got both of them on the neg post, might have droped down beside the battery. Good luck:cheers

    Keep it simple loose wires equals voltage drop re check connections and check cranking volts at starter should have battery voltage at starter before u hit the start button
