Any exhaust modifications? I'm assuming you are not touching the throttle while you are trying to crank...

Have you messed with the cruise control? or moved any cables? If a throttle cable or cruise control cable is not seated correctly it might be trying to rev the engine up, which as the engine hasn't started would cause a rich condition, otherwise I would suspect an injector has failed..

2003 1800 goldwing flooding

Postby bill jamison » Mon Apr 26, 2010 11:04 pm

I had a growling noise and hauled the 2003 trike with 122,000 miles home in a U-haul. I replaced the damaged alternator and still had noise. I then pulled the engine and replaced the ADG. Got it all back together and when started it flooded badly and runs rough and dies at idle. At first there was a malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) message at the red FI lamp under the speedometer of one blink, which is for the MAP sensor. I took the map sensor out and there was oil all around it inside the o-ring area. I have no idea where the oil came from. I cleaned the oil off and cleaned the hole it goes in also. There are no (MIL) messages now but it still is flooding.
I guess I have left something unhooked. I have been all through it and cannot find what I left undone. I have the shop manual and thought I followed all the instructions as to where all the wires and tubes go. I even took pictures as I took it apart and labeled the wires. All the vacuum hoses are in place and there was no oil in the air filter housing drain hose.

Anyone have any ideas??

I knew it had to be something stupid and simple =

My wife came out to the garage and asked if I was sure I had all the wires and tubes hooked up correctly. She looked and could see that all the hoses were hooked up. I took some time and showed her where all the unhooked dangling wires went. Then I looked again at the throttle body. I pulled the connection wire for the Throttle Position Sensor loose and also the connection for the MAP Sensor, they are both identical, one blue and the other grey. They are very close together. The thought hit me that they could be switched!!! I looked again at the wiring picture in the manual as well as my pictures and THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAD DONE!!!!!! So now I know that the BLUE connector goes to the Throttle Position Sensor and the GREY one goes to the MAP Sensor. With this done, I put the gas tank back on and started the bike and it ran PERFECTLY!!!! A BIG THANK YOU TO THE WIFE!!! I guess the error messages on the bike were not designed for dummies like me.

Now all that needs to be done is to put all the plastic back on and TAKE A RIDE!!!!
