The starter button on a Honda does two things. When pushed in half way it turns off the headlight so there is more juice for the starter, then when pushed in the rest of the way it engages the solenoid going to the starter. It's pretty obvious that you need a right switch assembly. Or a good starter button removed from another switch assembly. Honda only sells the button as part of the complete switch assembly. Sometimes you can take a switch apart and clean the button contacts(I have done this) But you must work carefully so you dont damage or lose pieces.Sometimes the only option is to buy a different switch.Good Luck.

My push button start switch not working on M/C..


Sounds like a bad relay... the relay switches all power to the solenoid to start the bike... when you let off of the starter it turns the lights etc back on. If the relay goes bad... starter button will not work, and no power to the headlight/taillight/dashlights... the relay is fairly cheep, 10 to 15 bucks....so its a pretty cheap test to see if that is what is wrong.

From your description, it sounds like a bad starter motor. That is provided all of the cables going from battery to relay, and relay to starter are not corroded or have poor connections. The relay is a weak point, so it may be damaged as well if the starter has been pulling too many amps.

Bike wont start just quit working one day it doesnt try to turn over battery is good and holding voltage, have checked all fuses, starter relay, kill switch, ran up and down that bike with a volt meter...


Push the starter button if your hear the solenoid clicking the starter button is good. If there is no click from the solenoid you may need to clean or replace the starter button.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Jump across the two cable terminals, this should activate the starter.If the starter works now you have burnt contacts inside the solenoid. replace the solenoid. If the starter does not turn over, try again tapping on the starter with a plastic hammer if the starter works now you need starter brushes. If the starter will not turn over with direct power (bench test) and the brushes are good the armature is probably shorted. You will have to replace the starter as an assembly parts are not available to rebuild the starter.

It sounds like you may have a bad starter relay. I'd investigate the clicking that you're hearing in the headlight. That's where I'd start anyway. You didn't give me enough information about the bike nor the engine. The frame is a Wide Glide frame which is different from a Dyna Wide Glide frame. This S&S engine could be an Evo or a Shovelhead but then you said you buy parts for a 1988. That would be an Evo engine.

If your bike is equipped with a NIppondenso starter like an Evolution engine, there is a single wire that plugs onto the starter just above the five sided plate on the right side end. Connect a test light or a volt meter to this wire and press the start button with the switch on. You should have battery voltage on this wire. It should light the light. If not, the starter relay is probably bad. That's may be what you're heaing in the headlight although I've NEVER seen a starter relay in the headlight. They're usually somewhere around the battery tray. It's a one inch plastic cube just like the ones on automobiles.
I hope this helps.

Good Luck
Steve

2001 vstar 1100 classic, issue is when start button is pressed all I hear is a click (one only). battery appears good and even with a boost it still just clicks. Can be push started OK. is this te...


If you turn the key on, you should get a strong headlight, horn and brake light when the battery is strong. If these are weak, then the battery is dying. If the battery is strong, hitting the start button should turn the headlight OFF momentarily. If there is no change or the headlight is not coming on then the starter button could be damaged. The battery voltage should stay above 11 volts when you are cranking the engine or loading the electrical system with brake light, horn or high beam activation.

The starter solenoid is down by the battery and if you jump across the big two terminals with a screwdriver (bike in neutral, please!) that will jumper the battery power directly to the starter motor. If the battery is good, the starter should start to spin the motor over. If the battery is good and there is no sound, then the starter motor is bad. If the starter motor spins over, either the starter solenoid is bad or the wiring to it is defective.

You need a a 12v test light to check the starter solenoid wiring circuits. A good Volt meter will tell you about the state of the battery (should be over 12v resting), as well as whether the charging system is working, once you have determined that the battery is okay. You need to monitor the charging system once the bike is running to see if that is part of the problem or not. It should crank out upwards of 13.5 volts when you rev it up to about 2,500 rpms.

Check the web for V-star forums and groups who may know about any problems unique to this model.

Will not turn over and headlights blinkers back


Check for power to your starter relay - if there is power there then most likely is your starter motor

I have no working headlights and my bike wont start with the push button but will start and run with a push i checked all fuses and connections i could find all are good any suggestions thank you


Headlights and, starter motors require more amps (power) than the blinkers and, taillights
so: jump your battery before you tear into the wiring
If it still doesn't start or, light up
I'll help you troubleshoot the wiring

Starting problems


I would start by checking your starter switch, ignition, the starter relay and then the kickstand saftey switch. There is a few things that happen when you start the bike. One, you depress the starter switch, the headlight shuts off, the starter relay closes and the bike starts. I'm not sure how or what creates this but I bet there is a relay somewhere along the line that cuts power to your headlight when you start the bike and its faulty and is causing both of the problems. It may stuck somewhere in the middle instead of open or closed. I would also suggest jumping your starter relay to see if it starts. If it doesnt, then it must in your ignition switch. Find your starter relay, there should be one red wire leading to it, another leading away. Very important... make sure your bike is in neutral.. the starter will fire not matter what. Take flat headed screw driver and connect the two post. It should fire right up. If it does, the lights should come on. It may be just enough to get that stuck relay unstuck.
