Under the riders seat there is a black plastic cover (lid) held down by a thick elastic strap with a clip at each end
Push down on one end of strap to disengage the clip
The battery is under the lid

You may have a dying cell in the battery. It will charge and seem OK but won't stay charged for long. Try a load test of the battery

Goldwing die while running has a new battery jump it but stalled 5 minutes later new brushes in alternator and new battery

check the relay behind the light, pain to get to but usually the problem.
Also, do yourself a favor, take the plug going to stator and splice the wires together, Plugs don't last and if you forget to put the electric grease or put to much, they either short or rust and short) It's under your side cover, 3 wires)

My engine won"t turn over on my 97 cadillac

It could be the starter. It could be a bad battery cable connection. Have you tried jump starting the engine. If it starts, then most likely it's to do with the battery or charging system.

Bike wont start , the solenoid just clicks

If you push the start button and the solenoid clicks the button is good. Find the solenoid ( usually by the battery follow the positive cable.) and jump the two posts with a screw driver, piece of wire , or jumper cables if the starter now works you need a new solenoid. At this point you either have a bad battery or a bad starter. Jump the bike with a good automotive battery (can be in the car just make sure car is not running or you could damage bike.) If bike starter still does not work try new starter brushes for a Goldwing they are cheao and easy to replace. If brushes look good ( not down to wear marks ) you need a starter ( bad armature ). I'm guessing the solenoid is bad (first choice) or you need brushes. Good Luck

1981 honda goldwing wont start

while trying to start an engine, and only the solenoid clicks, there are these 3 things- no juice from the battery, starter corroded contacts(the big cables) or starter is shot. so first make sure the battery is charged, next make sure the cable mounts from battery to starter are clean(no rust), if that is all good and doesnt start , remove starter and have it tested.
