Goldwing 1500 doesn't work

Post by joaoramos »



hello everyone, I recently bought a 1996 Honda Goldwing 1500 SE, the battery was purchased in July and the last time I turned it on was yesterday, after having the bike on for 10 minutes, I turned it off, tried to turn it on again and nothing, the radio it turns on, the neutral light appears, but then when I turn it again to turn the ignition on, the radio turns off, I press the button to start the engine and nothing happens.
Someone can help me?

dead battery, it indicates 4.7 volts, I have already checked for energy leakage and the value it gives me is 0.02 amps, is it normal?

Current draw with a good battery and nothing turned on should be .005 amps maximum.
