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.

    There is also a side stand safety switch. If the side stand is down and the bike is in gear the starter should not engage. This is also by design to prevent one from riding off with the side stand down. In most cases the side stand down while in gear will kill the motor, so it stands to reason that the starter won't engage since the motor can't be started anyway.

95 Honda Passport and gear stuck in 3rd gear will not go in any gear nor crank


Sounds like the clutch master cylinder went bad or is low on fluid or has air in it. Does the clutch feel normal when you push it in? It should try to crank over when clutch is depressed tho unless the neutral safety switch is bad. Have a friend rock the car back and forth while you try to pull it out of gear. Try to start it.if it starts the neutral safety switch is good. That leaves you with a clutch problem.

Bike dies when put in gear


Hi Ron, I would check the clutch interface switch at the clutch lever it sounds as if it is either faulty, broken, come loose or stuck. Some bikes have loads of problems with this beastie. Pull in the clutch lever then try spraying some lube between the lever and the stock and see if you can see the switch plunger move. You might have to remove the clutch lever completely to see this if you do then you should be able to push the plunger in by finger and see it spring back out. The whole switch does in some cases come loose if you look for 2 wires going into the clutch lever stock see it the thing they go into is loose or pushed out, normally they just push back with a slight click. When you operate the clutch lever the switch plunger should move out allowing the bike to start in gear. On my Suzuki you have to operate the clutch lever to start even in neutral. Hope this helps

Neutral safety switch problems 1992


Hi, Anonymous the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following tests.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

When you shift does the trans light change? It might be your shifter not registering the right gear. Put car in neutral and push car to see if it is in neutral. Or try to start it when it says its in neutral.

Ignition will not shut off to remove key unless battery is disconnected. 1992 Honda Accord LX


You have either a bad ignition switch or the actual tumbler (key slot) is worn out. Or, see if you can get the key out when you put it in NEUTRAL (with the Parking Brake on). If this lets the key out then the problem is within your Interlock Control system.
