I have the 2003 Honda Shadow 750 ACE and had a problem with the bike intermittently not wanting to start. All is good but when I hit the start button nothing would happen. Took it to the dealer and was about to pay them about $75 just to diagnose it when of the customers told me that the 2002-2003 Shadow line had came with a "sticky" clutch safety switch & starter button. First thing put the bike in neutral. If it starts, check that the (2)wires coming from the clutch lever are fully inserted(just push on them). If it still wont cut on, push the start button and "wiggle it" while pushed in. My problem came out to be the at the clutch safety switch. I removed the lever, pushed in the switch so that it popped out and sprayed the tiny hole on the side of the plastic switch with electric parts cleaner($3.00 @ the auto parts store for a 12oz. can). My bike hasn't had a problem since!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you tried starting with the clutch lever pulled and/or the side stand folded up? Some others to check:

  • +12 on the yellow / red wire coming from the starter button when pressed leading to the starter relay;
  • 0 or very low resistance to ground of the green / red wire coming from the starter relay.

Post back results of tests.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

2001 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe will not turn over


Hi, David before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 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 type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

Start button was stuck and now button wont start the honda shadow vlx


Sounds more like the battery may be dead... take the battery to O'Reilly's or Autozone and check the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps).. amperage is what starts your bike.. not voltage.. then see what happens...Next, its time to trace voltage.. make sure you are getting voltage from the battery to the solenoid.. then from the solenoid to the starter,,
