Question about 2005 Honda Activa
Only two things prevent an engine from starting/running. Always go to "Basics": Spark & Fuel (fuel/air mix). That's it. 1) Remove spark plug. 2) Put the plug back in in the "Spark Cable" just as it is IN the Engine. 3) Scrape a small area clean (down to bare metal) on the frame. 4) Hold the rubber head of the cable with rubber handled pliers (water pumps work great) using this to hold a side of the plug against the bare metal. 5) Turn the Ignition switch to ON. Crank the Engine as if starting it. Note the spark (if any). Is it Blue?=Strong Yellow?=Weak Is it Centered or way of to the side of the electrodes? If you have a good, regular, strong blue/white spark-...Fuel: 1) How old is the gas in the tank? Over 3 mos. Dump it! 2) Always replace/clean Fuel filter. 3) Same trick: Pull the fuel line off at the carb. and crank the Engine. (Careful-No Smoking!) Gas? 4) Fuel/Air mixture. If you have good Spark and good fuel...and Still does not start...Time to check parts. Good Luck
