You have a bad fuel pump. your fuel pump gets turned on by the blue wire that runs from your coil to your spark unit thats why the fuse never blows with the coil disconnected. i had the exact same thing and wasted a lot of time looking for a short that was never there and even tried a new spark unit and fuel cut off relay before i replaced the fuel pump.. fuel pump 65.00 money wasted on other things 350.00 and a lot of time. have your fuel pump tested with a 10 amp inline fuse and if it blows then u will know for sure

My 2009 Ford Focus ignition fuse 29 keeps blowing and now car won't start we changed ignition switch and it still won't start please help me?


This fuse powers the coils but also goes to the transformer capacitor. Trace the purple wire from the coils to find the capacitor. Disconnect the capacitor and test with an ohmmeter. The resistance should start at zero and climb to infinity. If not, replace the capacitor. If the capacitor is good, unplug all coils, put in a fresh fuse, and turn on the key. Check the fuse. If it burned, you have a short on the wire. If not, plug the coils back in one at a time, and check the fuse each time. If the fuse burns after plugging in a coil, replace that coil. Does this make sense?

2004 HONDA VTX 1100 NO SPARK


Hi, Alan and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

1986 Honda VT 1100 C no spark


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
11. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

1997 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre headlight not working


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

Why does my honda shadow 1100 american classic keep blowing 10 amp ignition fuse


DOES YOUR BIKE HAVE CORRECT IGNITION COIL IF IT TOO HIGHLY RATED I.E A SPORTS COIL YOU WILL PUT EXCESSIVE CURRENT THROUGH FUSE CAUSING IT TO BLOW. IS THE FUSE HOLDER SECURED DOWN VIBRATION CAN MAKE FUSES BLOW LIKE BULB FILAMENTS {TRY A 15AMP FUSE] IF THAT BLOWS DEFINATE OVER RATED COIL

No spark to rear cylinders runs good and then runs on one cylinder 1986 honda shadow 1100


try switching the position of the two coils, the plug wires will unscrew off of the coils and that way you dont have to pull the spark plug wires too,(be sure and change the 2 wire couplers too) if your front cylinder stops firing you know its the coil, if the back cylinder still doesn't fire then your coil is good and you either have a bad #2 spark unit or a bad crank pulse generator.

Fuel leaking out of upper tail pipe on my 1994 honda shadow 1100


sounds like fuel is not burning in cylinder, check for spark in that cylinder first. if no spark may need new plug, new igntion wire or new ignition coil. next check for compression in that cylinder.

96 Honda Shadow 1100c V-Twin


is this the one that kick in at a higher rpm to burn more gasses while running at speed? is it not running as it should, are you having an issue other than it doesnt do what you thought it should.No spark in rear cylinder or just on the one plug out of the two? If all is checking out as you said its got to spark.trade the coil thats on one with that other one see if the trouble is the same or moved with the coil to its new location.coil may work but not be good enough to run.
