Occasionally Lose Power

Fuse Box Issue/GW Occasionally Will Not Start: My 2002 Goldwing would not start after a 32 mile ride. I checked the battery cables and they were clean and secure. I checked the fuses which were fine however, I noticed the fuse box had alot of movement, the bottom screw on the fuse box was tight. After pushing the fuse box in from the top the my GW started. Anyone have any idea what that was about? I also have an issue with my radio and communications. No digital redout or sound. The fuses are good. Any ideas as to the problem?

What are you saying? The battery? It is new.

I would go back to the fuse holder and start moving individual wire to try and find which connection is at fault. Sometimes the fuse can look good but are causing an intermittent problem.

When all else fails.......... use a hammer!

Don't pay any attention to me. It's one of my idiotic jokes.

What about the kill switch? Try moving it a bit and seeing if it is the problem.

I would be inclined to start where my mate Eric pointed you. Additionally I would find the main ground for the bike, take apart, clean, apply some electrical joint compound, and retighten.

The main grounding point is under the tank. Tank has to be removed to get to it.
