2006 vtx1300r runs fine but wont idle

Ethanol in the fuel will often lower a bikes idle speed. Honda gives you a simple screw to turn to raise or lower the idle speed on your motorcycle. it is part #10 on the following diagram. The black plastic knob is located on the left side of the engine, when you are sitting on the bike, under the carburetor. Try turning the knob 1/4 to 1/2 turn clockwise. This should open the carburetor just enough to allow the cycle to idle again.

Have a 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring - tail lights went out but brake lights and turn signals both work. Dealer said there is no fuse for the tail lights (owners manual listing of fuses does not show any for...

dealer is and ***, there will be a fuse somewhere for that area, what else does not work, normally each sidelight is a separate curcuit, front and rear on each side on same curcuit, hence would guess bad earth curcuit in the unit. email honda and report dealer and ask same

Alpine 7835 display lights not working, everything else is fine

if it's not under warranty, I would advise taking the face plate apart and checking for burned spots on the board and using compressed air to remove anything that is conductive that may cause a short in the face plate. The face plate should be really easy to take apart.

Annoying blue light on volume control.. can it be turned off?

The face plate is easy to take apart, just remove the face plate off the head unit and take the hex screws out and put a piece of tape over the bulb on the system board. Then put it back together again.

Faceplate display backlight out

Your display lights are burnt out. This is a common problem. It is covered under warranty. Send it to Sony for service. Anyway, under the Sony faceplate there are two small, different colored leds which control the color. The light is aparently transfered through pieces of clear plastic (best example I can think of is the piece of plastic over the led in a household smoke alram)to most of the buttons and the backlighting. If your display has burnt out you may just be able to swap the leds for new ones. As for the intermittent green could it just be a faulty solder on the board.
