Sporadic cranking problems

Post by Floyd711 »



My 2003 Goldwing Aspencade will crank right up and then a few minutes later you turn the key and sometimes something clicks and nothing lights up or cranks. The battery is good. Sometimes no sound just nothing lights up. Neutral doesn't show all looks dead. Floyd

Typical symptoms of loose battery terminals.

Thanks for the tip. The battery terminals were checked and are tight. We took the seat off blew a lot of air to maybe glean out dust and things tha might be comprising a connection. Checked all fuse connections and they were fine. After putting it all back together we tried cranking several time and all was well. We'll have o see if that's all it takes.
