Hello Guys,

I am new to this. Just bought a 2016 Harley Breakout and it's my 1st Big Boy Bike. I just towed it for 12 hours in the rain and get it home and it does not start. The lights will come on and I hear the fuel pump turn on; but will not turn over. the odometer and gearing lamps will not turn on. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thx

If as you say it spent 12 hours with rain beating down on it you may have some wet switches like the Start and Run/Stop switches on the handlebars.

Blow dryer might speed the drying process up.

The hair dryer did not make a difference. I checked all connections and battery. Nothing is out of place that I can see and the bike fired right up prior to the road trip..I will keep at it..thx

Take your battery out and have it load tested. Start with easy stuff first. It you have to get a new one, bring it home and fully charge it, on a battery charger at 2 Amps, even though they tell you it's ready to go. Tenders are not chargers. Good luck and welcome to the forum @gquarles

Ok. I did find a burnt fuse. The A&P fuse. I replaced it and the dash came on with an error code (BUSErr) and then went off again. I figured that its something minor; I just don't know much about bike yet. I am reading a lot and asking you guys for help before I take to the shop. I appreciate your assistance..

a low battery in the fob can cause it.

Your model and year motorcycle has what is called a CAN Bus or HD LAN. If you added anything electrical that is not HD LAN compliant it might interfere with the Bus communication and cause the BUSErr.

One thing that seems to work when the bus gets locked down and you see BUSErr is to try removing the main (maxi) fuse for about a minute, and see if it resets/clears when you plug it back in.

Otherwise you might check the ECM connector for proper seating. It is a high density connector and proper mating is sometimes difficult.

You said the A&P fuse was blown and blew again after replacing it? There is a fuse if my memory serves me correctly called the P&A fuse. It stands for parts and accessories. If that fuse is blowing you might have something plugged into the P&A plug which you should find under the seat. That plug will be controlled with an Aux Switch on the fork. Look behind the fork and you should see a switch.

@gquarles The BUSErr, was more than likely caused by the blown fuse causing the dash not powering up it would not be able to talk to the other modules, now that the Odometer is alive check for codes, write down any then clear them. see if they come back.
I tend to agree with H.D Bitchin the 12 hr trip in the rain more that likely caused some water intrusion and cause a short that blew the fuse. now that things have dried out did the fuse blow again?

Well, I ended up taking the bike to the dealership and they found 2 pinched cables going to the gas tank, condensation which corroded 2 terminals and a bad battery. All good now and I truly appreciate all the help and suggestions.
