Look in the nacelle under the speedo for breakers.

Re: fuse box or circuit breaker

Behind the headlight,check the relays.Ofcourse battery terminal connections at both ends.A quick test that I've done is a separate hot wire for battery to hot side of ign. switch.use the breaker off pos. side of battery for safety.Turn switch on,if nothing happens ign.switch is bad.If you get power to the bike trace your main hot wire back to find the open circuit

Re: fuse box or circuit breaker

I have a 1992 FLHTCU that I just went through. There are 4 ckt. brkrs. mounted to the top tripple tree behind the fairing(outer).Main,Ign.,Lights,Access
The fuses behind my left cover were for the CB set up. The only other fuse I remember was for Cruise Control under the seat.

Don't feel bad danger dan, I hadn't the foggiest idea what that meant when I first read it on this forum a few years ago. Like yourself I looked it up and found out. I have learned quite a bit since I became a regular reader of HDTalking.
