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

1 Answer

Hello so this morning I stopped for gas after a couple miles, turned the key, everything seemed powered, push the starter - all power is gone. Seems like there could be a short in the starter switch? I pushed the bike out of the way, noticed lights coming back on, tried to start, same thing. Background - It's a 2002 VT 750 ACE - I ride rain or shine, it sleeps outside - if that makes a difference.. Thank you for any help

The battery may have developed a dead cell.
Try jumping the battery and see if it starts.
If it does, at least one cell in the battery is shot. or the system isn't charging the battery.
Try charging the battery with a plug in charger, and see if it'll start after that.
If it does, ride it a while (but not far, or you may wind up pushing it a long way home)
If the battery is having a harder time starting the bike or won't start it after riding a while, there's something amiss with the charging circuit on the bike.

Alternately if you have a volt meter, check the battery before and after starting the bike. The voltage should be higher than it was originally after starting. If it's not, there's something wrong with the charging circuit.
If it IS higher, but drops significantly after riding, it's the battery, and it'll need to be replaced.

Hi! This doesn't sound like a shorted wire, because a short would usually blow a fuse. Since you're having trouble with the starter, I'm thinking that the ignition switch needs replacement. Depending on the year/make/model, you may be able to change just the electrical part of the ignition switch.

The side stand kill switch may be out of position, Starter button wire has come disconnected somewhere along the way? Is there power from the button to the solenoid when the button is pressed. If so, get a new solenoid. If not, trace the wire back to the button and find where it has come disconnected.

When you crank the engine are you getting a full 12 volts positive at the solenoid switch on the top of the starter?

Have you got a full 12 volts negative to the switch?

Also, check the earthing strap from chassis to engine is good.

Starter going but no fire up.


Sounds like your relay from your starter or your plug wires might be out. Or your plugs might need to be changed or calibrated right to continue running.

check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps

Engine won't crank or seem to get power on key turn.


More than likely, your starter has gone out. If the battery is fully charged and its not even turning over, that is what i would start with.

Turn key to start and nothing


Not if you left your headlights on all night and completely drained the battery. if it is dead, try to jump it, if you get some sort of power with the jumpers attached, go buy a new battery.

check clutch switch and starter relay in the power distribution box near the battery. Likely one of them has gone bad. Tell me what you find.

Engine turns over fine , car will not start.


well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.
