Question about 1990 Honda GL 1500 SE Gold Wing

1 Answer

With Key switch in on position I have no power to ignition

When the the key switch is in the on position, I have no head lights, no running lights, no istrument lights on the dash, and no ignition. I do have blinkers, hazard lights, brake lights, horn and radio. I checked all the fuses and the main fuse.
Prior to this problem I installed new brake pads on the rear. I did not try to start the bike before working on it that day. The bike had been sitting in the garage for 3 or 4 days prior to this. Was running fine then.

    sounds like to me you are getting the lights and power thats in the handle bars wires but not what is tucked(or used to be)into the headlight assembly...but i would look over the wires to see if you got any loose connections you know the battery is good and you get partal power,and you checkd the fuses assigned to the parts not working so it sounds like there is either a loose connection or one of the problem parts not getting power is shorting out?...let me know if it helps..im new here and got help for my car so i try to help out

Why do I have no power at the starter switch?


Hi, Jim and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.
