You have to change a starter brushes or you have a bad rotor in the starter.

SOURCE: How do I test the starter switch on a 2001 Honda

Maybe I am missing somethtg here ... you press the start switch and one of 2 things happens - the bike starts or it doesn't. If it does, your start switch is definitely good. If it doesn't ... well there are a couple things to consider. Are you in gear? Will not start in gear unless the clutch is pulled in. But, if the clutch is pulled in and you are in gear and the side stand is down, it will not start. So, if you move the side stand up, you are in gear and you have the clutch pulled in and it doesn't start ... well ... could be the key is not on (silly but true) and/or the 'kill switch" may be in the off position causing your bike to not start. If the clutch is pulled in, the side stand is up and you are in neutral and the kill switch is in the run position and the key is on - (or some other very similar arrangement as I have described) your Shadow should start. Nothing here has ruled out a bad switch nor, for that matter, a good switch.

You bike will still not start - so what else to look at/for. How is the battery? Have you checked it recently? Your battery MIGHT still be the original in which case I would be suspect of it being 10 years old. Maybe you or a previous owner has replaced it ... still, have you checked it? You will find it under the seat.

Battery good and still will not start? Find the start solenoid. With a volt meter, measure the voltage at each of the large terminals. One shold be 12 volts (battery side) the other should be zero volts (starter side). You will check the smaller terminals later . Key Off? No volts on smaller terms. With everything in a normal start condition (key on, bike in neutral, kill switch in run position), measure the voiltage on the other large terminal on the start solenoid. Should be zero. Press the start button. Do you get voltage? No voltage = the solenoid is either not receiving power to energise or it is energised but not making connection.

What happens is when you turn on the key you supply power to potentially anything that can be turned on. When you press the start button, you should be powering the start solenoid (an electric operated switch) That should allow power to flow to the starter and start the bike. If all that is happening, I would suspect the starter. If everything is OK but it doesn't start, suspect the solenoid and lastly ... the switch. I think I would consider jumping power directly to the starter to see if that actually runs before looking at the switch. The actual start switch is pretty tuff compared to other parts of the system.

Let me know what happens ... good luck. I think you will find something simple.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

1999 honda shadow 750cc wont start.key off ...tried hooking up led lights.. ran 2 grey wires from led lights together to headlight fuse turned key on ran 2 black wires from led lights to ground


Hi, Arleen 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 or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Replace your right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch. Push it in halfway and the headlight goes out(more power to the starter). Push the button in all the way and the solenoid kicks in. The starter button is causing both problems.

I have a 2000 Honda Shadow 750 ACE. While riding at highway speed I accidently hit the kill switch. At first wasn't sure what had happened. Realized it was a fuel issue... noticed it was the kill switch....


Take the starter button off and put a 12 volt tester on one of the 4 leads that are wired into the button. Test each- If you find a hot line, take a small piece of wire and jump the current over to the other parrallel button. I worked on my bike for two weeks before I discovered this problem. Another problem was that the headlight would not come on. The starter would not crank at all. I took a screw driver and raised the brass leads on the switch so they would make contact and put the switch back together, and it worked. Good luck.

No start


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!
