Possible OBC failure

1442 Views 19 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Adventures on Zero
I have a 2020 ELW that I fear may have a failed OBC. After my last ride for the season a few weeks ago, I parked my bike in my garage and was charging it up to meet the range specified for long term storage in the manual. Around approximately 46% I got a notification that my bike had stopped charging and the breaker had tripped for my garage. I reset the breaker, unplugged the bike but it will no longer charge. When I plug it in, the EVSE starts blue as normal but turns to red in moments. I’ve tried different outlets in my garage, clearing the fault codes, and checking the fuses to no avail. I haven’t yet called the dealer as I have a few months of winter to do that if need be but I’m trying to see if I can avoid a trip there if possible. Anything I’m missing Or possible solutions? I have attached the codes for my bike. The first is before I tried clearing the codes and the second is more recent.

Hello Colton,
When did you buy the bike..? Harley-Davidson has a 2 year warranty on the OBCS.
If your 2 year warranty has not expired, you might want to call HD right away. Most dealerships will come pick the bike up for free in the winter time.
I had a different type of problem with my OBCS and HD had to fly a technician from the factory to come verify the issue and then replace the OBCS under warranty (otherwise it's a $6000 part).
Good luck to you.
