Question about 1995 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit

1 Answer

I have a 95 Honda 1100 shadow spirit. I turn the key on and it seems normal with lights but when I hit the start button the light go out and nothing happens. It's as though the battery is dead,but it's not. I'm wondering if it's a bad ignition switch. it feels a little odd when you turn it on and off, plus I can take the key out of the ignition in the on position.

yes, but i would check both ends of battery cables,(especialy at the solenoid)make sure the wire is not corroded under coating where the ends attatch (positive wire especialy).also the 30 amp fuse on the start solenoid could need to be checked for clean contact under screws. If all this checking things doesnt do it then get a start solenoid

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, it would appear that the charging circuitry has failed.  Initially, check the rectifier/regulator combo and its connectors/terminals.  The regulator is located behind and below the coolant reservoir. Check for any loose, burned or corroded terminals:

  • 3 yellow wires from stator;
  • green wire to ground; and
  • red/white wire from regulator to starter relay (to battery - charging line).
The voltage on the the red/white wire or the battery + terminal should rise from 12 + to 14+ as the engine RPM is increased.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Replace the spark plug caps and try again. On Honda's the cap is often part of the wire (a dealer part) NGK makes some inexpensive plug caps about $5 each. They should OHM out to 5000 anything above or below and you need to replace them. This should fix the problem.

Hi, Ac_dunker50 before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.
