I aggree with pete,I had the same problem with my 03 ultra. Someone here on the forum told me of a know problem of bikes shutting down in stop and go traffic and getting hot causing the main breaker to trip.I replaced this breaker under the seat (50amp)and no more problem. the best part of the fix is it was only an 8 dollar fix.

I had that happen several times with my 01 Ultra. Even after the factory recall to replace the circuit breaker, it happened again. Heat causes that breaker to 'open' and fail.
I ended up taking the breaker and it's holder, and relocated it under the right side cover with all the other electronics...No more problems after several more years.. That said, others told me that they replaced with circuit breaker with a Maxi Fuse. ( I would have but was given bad info from a dealer...they said I couldn't do it and I took their word for it...) Bottom line, get that circuit breaker away from it's original position under the seat, right behind the rear jug or go to a Maxi fuse that is not prone to heat damage/failure.

The 2000 flhtci had a recall for the main breaker tripping. The fix is a higher amp breaker. The breaker will trip and reset itself in seconds so when you lose power it will restart almost lmmediatley. Mine was cured of this problem as soon as the breaker was replaced with a 50 amp.
