Question about 2003 Honda VTX 1300 Retro
Posted by Anonymous on
Your ignition switch may be having issues (A dirty or shorting ignition contact base). The contact base can be replaced or taken apart and cleaned on most Honda ignitions (your ignition switch is replacement only). If your have a short in your starter solenoid, you could be powering the motorcycle from there. Try starting the motor cycle and unplugging the the starter solenoid activation wires from the harness, then turn the ignition off and see if the lights stay on and the motor keeps running then. The most common reason for some one to experience the run on issues you describe is crossed wires in the harness. Honda wire harnesses are color coded which makes this easy to check. If some one was working in the headlight bucket where all the harness connections are made it is quite possible that some wires were plugged in the wrong connectors. Look over all connections carefully the fix could be as easy as switching two wire connections.
