Hi, Anonymous 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.

SOURCE: When I press the starter button nothing happens.

VERY WELL COULD BE. FIND THE STARTER RELAY AND JUMP ACROSS THE 2 BIG WIRES. MAKE SURE THE BIKE IS IN NEUTRAL AND THE SWITCH IS ON. THE BIKE SHOULD START. IF NOT, THE RELAY WILL NEED REPLACING.

SOURCE: Getting no power to nothing. Battery good. starter relay

I don't think it's your relay, if you've got power to nothing.Unless it is somehow shorting to the frame.

Likely candidate is the key switch itself. Check the wire that feeds the switch from the battery. If it doesn't have power, you likely have a broken wire or hidden fuse.

If it's got power check the other wires coming from the switch for power with the switch on. If no power there, the switch is bad.

My honda vtx 1300 was just running went back out and turned key on and have no head light but all other lights and horn works nothing happens when i hit the start button


Sounds like a fuse let go!
Get an ohm meter and check your fuses. They should read 0 ohms (or whatever the meter reads when the leads are touched together)
Remember to pull the fuses first before testing them.
I'd check all the fuses while you're there.

If that doesn't show anything wrong, then check the ignition switch itself. Turn it on and off and wiggle it a bit. If the headlight flickers, there's something wrong in the switch, and you'll probably need to pull and clean or possibly replace it.

2005 vtx 1300 r. where is the main fuse at the starter relay?


It is a flat fuse (30a) and plugs into the top of the starter solenoid. There should be a spare fuse on the rubber solenoid mount.

start relay should be checked, if cables are loose or corroded they do not deliver enough power.if jumping the start relay will engage the starter replace the relay.

I have a 2004 honda vtx 1300 c motorcycle that has an electric dr


using a 12 volt test lamp conected between the removed negative battery cable and, the negative battery post; with the fuses in place; you will see the test lamp lit if you have a power draw. as you have already found the correct circuit: the starter relay circuit: check each component in that circuit i.e. the relay, starter, starter switch, etc. untill the lamp goes off. you will have found the problem part.

Once or twice a week, I have problems with the starter. I push the button and hear the starter spinning but nothing else happens. Hit the button a couple of times and it catches and starts. This problem...


I seriously doubt the brand of oil you use is going to affect the starter. If you are hearing the starter spin but only get sporadic engagement, the starter's bendix may be worn and needs to be replaced.
