2001 Road King, again

All,

I thought I had fixed the problem on my Road King by changing fuel pump and filter, but it has gotten worse. It still loses power on highway around 80mph, and a couple of days ago, I needed to go back to the store, and my scoot was already hot from a ride minutes before. It would turn over and run for 1-2 seconds only. I let it sit overnight, and it runs perfect. Instead of throwing parts at it like I usually do everything, I took it to a shop here and had the ECM codes read. Nothing. What can this little gremlin be? I suspect it is a sensor that gets hot and then doesn't work. Crank Sensor maybe?

That is the question I was going to ask..Next time it does that , you need to check for spark. You are losing either your 12v source to the coils, or you are losing ground. I would bet that you are losing ground be cause 12v just comes from a fuse. If you are losing ground, then that would lead back to the module. The module behaves just like an old set of points. it's probably just getting hot and breaking down...Pulll the small ground wire off of the coil and see if it is grounding every time the cylinder is supposed to fire..use your ohms meter..

So when it dies, and you try to crank it again and it won't crank but it has spark while you are turning over, it seems that the only possible thing it would be is the injectors are dead....That would be my next test..Pull a wire of the injectors and see if it is getting any pulses..you need a noid light, a volt meter won't work..Ebay..or maybe rent one from auto zone...you would also need to check the ground side of the injector for pulses....

seems to be running fine now. I ordered a new crank sensor. It is a 2001, and everything is original.
