Won't turn over

Post by mbeach36 »



My !994 Gl1500 Aspencade . I went to start it but got nothing, Dash lights and headlights came on but wouldn't turn over. I put the battery on charge then tried again with same results. Checked fuses and relays with no luck, Replaced starter so;enoid again, just replaved it a month ago. and still nothing. I am at a loss I have tried everything I could think of but when I hit the start button the headlight dims but nothing else. Any suggestions please? ;) ;) ;)

Headlight dims or turns off? It should turn off.

And I just went through this with mine, turned out my reverse lever was slightly engaged, not enough to turn the R light on, and the N light was still on.
I after almost 2 hours of troubleshooting (similar to you, pulled battery, checked it, swapped batteries, checked fuses, wires, cleaned connections, solenoid etc), I remembered I had moved the R handle slightly, it was enough to keep it from starting.

Check your kill switch connections. Some of the later models won't turn over if the kill switch is off or bad connections.

Those who say it cannot be done should try not to interrupt those who are doing it.
