SOURCE: I can not start my Honda Goldwing 89 1500 Trike

Hi it sounds like the starter solinoid or starter relay is not working or there could be a loose wire or the starter motor is faulty

SOURCE: 1998 Honda Goldwing will not start nothing.

Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.

With the bike NOT in neutral, you must be holding the CLUTCH lever in to start. Otherwise, nada. If you look at the inside section of that lever, two little wires come out of the little boot--to which connect a switch. That'd be the faulty one. To test, leave the clutch disengaged, use a multimeter/ohm meter and check for continuity or open on the switch directly--remove the wires first, they just push on. after measured with handle untouched, hold in the lever and measure again. this time it should be a closed circuit, registering continuity. If not, swap it. Dont simply jump these two wires--the bike WILL just jump up if you do that and try to start and the bike's NOT in neutral.

SOURCE: Neutral Light won't come on; bike won't start

O.K. guys! for those of you having problems with your NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH . I had this problem on my 1994 goldwing se and after calling dealers that had all kinds of replies that I didn't like I decided to see if I could find a solution and I did find the problem and fixed it without having to even buy parts. The bad part is that you have many parts to remove to get at the problem but it's possible for anybody to fix the switch.
Here is what I did:I took out my manual and decided to remove the top part of the gas tank cover.By following my manual I removed the 2 pockets on each side of the handle bars then I followed the instruction on removing thecover that holds your radio all the way to the cover where you fill the gas tank.When that cover is released you will see wiring that plugs into your radio follow instruction and remove the plugs and get that whole cover out of your way....
Now on the left side of the bike (same side as the side stand) you will have to remove the left side cover where the REVERSE LEVER is again if you follow your manual it is possible to do without much trouble. Now when you have removed that side panel you will see where your REVERSE LEVER was and you will see a little switch attached to that reverse switch. REMOVE that switch and spray it with electrical cleaner solution and work it back and forth till you hear and feal it clicking and once that happens put it back on the bike and try it out.YOU SHOULD HAVE A GREEN LIGHT AND YOUR BIKE SHOULD START. That is how I repaired my switch and don't have the green light problem at all now.IF THAT SOLVES YOUR PROBLEM YOU CAN NOW PUT IT ALL BACK TOGETHER.
If your switch doesn't clean up and doesn't work you can order one from hondaline.

Hi, Quinton and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. Grounded neutral light circuit.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

The neutral lite wont stay on , the foot lever is not allowing it to go to neutral


The neutral light won't stay on because the gearbox isn't in neutral. try rocking the bike backwards and forwards, kick the gears down as many time as you can (at least 6) and then try moving the gear lever up one until the bike moves freely backwards and forwards. Your bike should then start. It would be easier to identify any problems if you let us know the make and model of the bike.

Could a bad Neutral Safety Switch cause my transmission to not stay i gear


I doubt it.
The only thing the neutral safety switch does is prevent you from cranking the engine in gear, and switches on the backup lights when you are in reverse.
