Hello and welcome.

I'd check the ignition switch connections. If its an electrical issue, you will probably have to check pretty much every wire, connector and plug. Do you have a factory alarm? If so try disabling it and see if it still does it. Heard thats one of the things they do when they go screwy.

The shop you took it to an actual HD dealer or just a small repair shop that works on HD's?

Wish I knew more about them. If you noticed, not a lot of traffic here anymore. Have you tried some of the HD specific web forums like hdforums.com?
