Using a meter check your engine to frame ground
your testlight is completing the missing ground wire connection; allowing the spark to jump to ground

MY 1980 HONDA GOLDWING 1100 GL INTERSTATE RUNS ROUGH & LOSES POWER WHEN ENGINE GETS HOT AFTER A FEW KILOMETERS ?


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. 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 cursory 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.
2. 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Dirty air filter.
10. Intake air leak.
11. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system.
12. Carburetor contaminated, sticky float, plugged jets.
13. Carburetor vacuum diaphragm torn, cracked, not seated or installed improperly.
14. Multiple carburetors out of sync.
15. Fuel filter clogged.
16. Old or contaminated fuel.
17. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carb vent line closed off.
18. Gas cap diaphragm valve faulty.
19. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
20. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
21. Incorrect valve timing.
22. Valve springs floating, weak, or broken.
23. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
24. Incompatible performance parts.
25. Control module may be in "LIMP" mode
26. Check for engine trouble codes.

Just bought used bike, bought new motor hooked it all up, even new ecm's.test light shows power from all sources motor turns just wont start


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check for the presence or absence of spark at the plug(s). If none, check if there is a +12 on one terminal of the ignition coil and a pulsating ACV on the other. Additionally, verify that the neutral light is lit. Try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the side stand folded up.

Postback results of tests.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Starter will not turn over


Just uncap the wire going to the plugs. Kick the starter and hold the naked end of the wire close to the body. If you don't get a sharp sparking from the ends of the wire to the body then you'll know there is insufficient current being supplied to it by start solenoid...............sodeep
