Question about 1993 Honda CB 750 Nighthawk

1 Answer

1993 Honda CB 750 Nighthawk will not turn over

I stopped for gas. Turned the key & NOTHING. I switched the 2 10 amp fuses, & wound up pushing my `91 750 home. What should I check next? I just got this 1991 750 Nighthawk, & had no trouble before. No lights, no noise, no nothing. I`ll try changing the 30 amp fuse today. The battery cables are tight. I might pull the ignition out & check for loose wires. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated since I`ve only driven it home, & to the gas station so far. It seems like a great bike, & all lights worked perfectly before.

Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

Look at this starter relay close, there is a fuse under a black plastic cover, check this fuse for being burnt. Next check the kick stand safety switch, make sure it is in the bracket, tight no loose wires. Next is the clutch safety switch. And last is a neutral safety switch. Here is a manual for you to download. Hope this helps Fix Ya. up. >>>Hondamanual

Radio quit working

Sounds like someone shorted the need to look into the entire butcher job and see what wires were touched. Disconnect everything the butcher did and then see if your battery is still drainning power.

I was using the dryer and all of a sudden it stop running. i can hear a small noise when i turn the time dial and push start,but nothing happens.

First check the 30 amp fuses in the panel. Next check to see if the belt is broken. Next short out the small thermal fuse on the heater housing and if the dryer starts replace it .

Have a 2006 Heritage Softail - Was running when speedometer & odometer quit working and key light came on - not engine light. Stopped at gas station - when down shifted to stop things started working...

Hi Johnrobindan, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.

My GGQ 9800 gas dryer won't start. It was working

Things to check first on a no start dryer.
Check for power at outlet.
Inspect power cord.
When you try to turn it on do you hear anything?
Check the door switch(does it click when pressed in?)
The next item to check and most likely replace on a completely dead dryer with power and a good door switch would be the thermal fuse located inside the cabinet.
Please let me know if I can help with anything else

Won't turn on

First check voltage and breaker,(this is a big one)
next, if you have power to the appliance (120 gas dryer or 240 electric) then the door switch is probaly broken.

lastly, perhaps a thermal fuse located on blower vent. goodluck
