We have been seeing a lot of the starter buttons going bad here lately, either the head light won't come back on or the starter won't connect. try spraying wd-40 in above the starter and push button and allow it to snap out do this a few times to get some of the wd-40 to the contacts of the switch. if you get lucky this will clean the contacts and save you the expense of replacing the switch. because it only comes in the complete right handle bar switch assembly.

2005 Honda VTX 1300 R will not turn over


Hi, Azucar1974 before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit 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.

Starter wont turn


Push the starter button , if the solenoid clicks the button is good. If not check the button for continuity. Follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid. Jump the solenoid posts, if the starter works , 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 starter brushes. If you open the starter and the armature is shorted or the coils are grounded or burnt, replace the starter assembly.

Will not start


Try this. Turn on headlite then try to start.Watch lite,if it goes real dim to off trouble is battery.If lite does not change,still bright,trouble is bad starter,or bendix or solonoid.Starter is not requesting power so lite stays bright.Don,t forget to check ground wires at battery and frame.You changed battery check connections.
