Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 CD Shadow A.C.E. Deluxe

1 Answer

I was on a ride. Stoppedf for gas, when I went to start back up, no try to start. Pushed started and off I went. Started jumping across the solinoid after that. Fouind a guy to test it out and found the start button not working. At about this same time, no headlights. Same guy tested and no power to the headlight socket. Fuses all good. put a jumper wire from hot wire off ignition to low beam wire at the plug to get me homw. If the fuse is good, is there another relay or something somewhere to check before taking it to a shop? 2002 Honda 750 Shadow Spirit

Replace your right switch assembly. The starter button is a two position switch. Push it in halfway and the headlight goes out(more power to the starter). Push the button in all the way and the solenoid kicks in. The starter button is causing both problems.

Bound up transmission. Bad clutch maybe. After it happened, you most likely pushed it home or back onto your truck or whatever, moving the gears a bit. That would possibly unlock or free up the clutch or tranny. Don't start it again until you tear it apart. You could do more damage if you haven't already.

A couple of possibilities, either the main fuse has blown, they are normally an auto motive design and located undrt the the hood of the machine, or the start solinoid has burnt out.

Husqvarna mower starts and dies

The unit on the bottom of the carb bowl is an anti fire solinoid, when the ignition is switched on you should hear an audible click as the pin in the centre of the solinoid jumps back to the normal run position, to test remove the unit, switch the ignition on the pin should retract fully into its housing, if not it will shut off the main jet in the carb, replace if required this may well be your problem.

Battery dead

If you don't have a multimeter, get one from Radio Shack or Wal-Mart. Measure the voltage across your battery while the bike is off. Then measure the voltage across the battery while you push the starter. Finally, measure the voltage across the battery with the bike running (if you can get it running). BTW, when jump starting a bike with a car, LEAVE THE CAR OFF.
