Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I understand that the fuses test good. Could you try again but this time focus on the fuse holder themselves, either corroded, does not hold the fuses tightly or the electrical contacts underneath are loose. Other than that, others to check are:

  • battery voltage;
  • battery + terminal;
  • battery ground wire;
  • ignition switch;
  • +12 wire to ignition switch.

The above would be the initial tests/checks. Postback results/updates and we can work from there.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Inside the starter relay assembly, there is a 30 amp fuse.
You might check that the fuse is good.

Attempted to start the bike, there was one click from the battery area. Then everything went dead. No lights anywhere. I checked the battery. It is fully charged. Is there a fuse that could cause this?


If I'm not mistaken, I think the fuses are under the seat on these bikes... Not 100% sure but, on the older Shadows and Magnas and those type of bikes, the fuse panel slides into the side of a plastic cover. This would be right on top of the rear fender, under the seat if this the type of bike I'm thinking of. Good Luck!

No power and batt is good


My first guess would be a dead cell inside the battery, or a blown fuseable link between the battery and the fuse box.
Someone would need to check the battery connections and fuse box with a meter.

I have a 1974 CB750 Honda and I have owned it since 1975. It has run well over the years. I went to start it the other day and when I hit the start button, I lost power and the bike is dead. No lights,...


If you lost all electrics, it may be in the battery cables, check where it grounds to the frame and the engine, and check continuity of the cables themselves in case they have corroded or broken under the insulation.
.you said the main fuse is ok but does it have power to it? use a test light to check both side of fuse for power

I have a 99 camry the went dead and i tried to jump it the horn blows good the head lights comes on but when i turn the key it says nothing the dash lights doesnt come on its like its not getting any power


There could be several reasons for your problem:
  1. Check your connections for tightness and corrosion. A corroded battery cable/post will diminish the current going to the dead battery.
  2. Check jumper connections
  3. Dead battery; the worse off the battery is, the more time it will take to charge the battery sufficiently enough to start the car; a completely dead battery with bad cells will never recharge sufficiently enough to hold a charge and start the car on a regular basis
Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
