Question about 1983 Honda GL 1100 Innerstate Gold Wing

1 Answer

Electical short / 1978 GL1000

When I push the start button the headlight dims and nothing else happens. The neutral light comes on very dim, I was testing things that other day and all of a sudden everything worked perfectly and then quite again and I wish I knew what I did. This is driving me crazy, if you jump the starter solunoid it will start right up. Any help would be helpful, Thanks

The bike won't start. When you push the dtart button the head light shuts off and nothing else happens


sounds to me as though your battery is very low on power, either that or your starter motor is stuck and wont turn which will pull loads of amps from battery and possibly dim headlight to nothing.

Headlights go dim when try to start,but nothing happen the switch lights come on but dont start. 1800 vtx motorcycle 2003


The headlight is supposed to turn off when you push the starter button. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. If there is no power going to the solenoid you can try disassembling and cleaning the button. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , unless the manufacturer sells replacement parts so you can repair the starter. most manufacturers only sell replacement starter brushes.

No start turn the key and nothing


Does the car crank? If not, does you lights dim when trying to start? If your lights are bright and the car is not starting than It's most likely the starter. If your lights are dim than try to jump start it. If it cranks and still not starting than it could be so many different things.

Light dimming


BROTHER; It sounds like you have a ground issue,clean all of your elect. connections with CRC, lectamotive. This will clean out the dirt and old grease, then greasy the connections with DI-ELECTRIC GREASE, nothing else. If you use any other grease you will have a short and more elect. problems. Try that and GOOD LUCK......GREASY

Chevy tahoe won't turnover, power to everything, no clicking in starter to indicate that it is the starter, nothing happens when you turn the key? any sugg My problem is similar. My 2003 4wd will start...


Next time it won't start turn headlights on and see if they dim when you turn key to start, if they dim its most likely starter, if they don't dim possible starter switch, Have you tried to start it in neutral position? Try that, if it starts in neutral than its park neutral switch, if not could be starter switch, Just make sure you chk. all fuses and any relays associated with ignition first.
