Okay...the battery posts themselves should be identified with a + and -

As for the cables....often the positive cable is red, and has a rubber cap on the cable that covers the positve cable/battery post connection once bolted up. The negative cable does not have this cap. You should note that the positive cable runs from the battery to the main fuse of the bike, which usually is near the battery.

My 2005 Honda VTX 1800 doesn't start, changed battery no help. Neutral light goes out as soon as I hit the start button


Hi, Pat and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. 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 if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.

Honda VTX 1300 R will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System 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.

Took old dead battery out don't know which terinal is negative and which is positive


the terminals on the battery will have a + (positive) or a - (negative) moulded in the plastic case within 1/2 inch of the terminal.

if it is the cables you are not sure about, the negative cable will go straight to the body of the car.

using a 12 volt test lamp conected between the removed negative battery cable and, the negative battery post; with the fuses in place; you will see the test lamp lit if you have a power draw. as you have already found the correct circuit: the starter relay circuit: check each component in that circuit i.e. the relay, starter, starter switch, etc. untill the lamp goes off. you will have found the problem part.
