Question about Motorcycles
I can't get my cb to turn on. Yes I have pushed the cb button and held it down but no good. it still will not come on. It was working fine yesterday but this morning when I started the bike and tried to use the cg, it would not come on. I have checked the grounds and they seem ok. I disconnected the ground side of the battery for a full minite and reconnected it but it still will not come on. I know it has to be something simple. Yes I checked the fuses and they are good. All other electronic slystems work fine. But the cb will not come on. Any help will be appreciated.

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.

first place i would go is the switch either take it apart and clean it or replace it as this is what makes the reverse turn on this bike

SOURCE: 96 goldwing radio no volume
Had the same problem, there is a fuse on the left side, way down under all that stuff, it is just a line fuse to the radio, it has blown, it is not in the book, and it hides real good. Drove us nuts looking for it. And when we were ready to buy a new radio, we found the fuse. Took 8 hours to totally dismantle bike to find it. Will take you 10 minutes, good luck.

If you jump the solenoid and it doesn't turn over, it is probably a bad starter. But don't forget to make sure the neutral light is on and the kickstand switch is good.
