no neutral light, no start, 2010 1800

worked fine yesterday, today, no worky. I tried the obvious easy stuff, shifted back an forth multiple times, operated side stand multiple times, flicked start button and on/off switch and ignition multiple times, said a few bad words multiple times, Everything else seems to be working fine, all the lights work. Without taking the bike all apart, what shall I check next. 2010 1800

EDIT: I should also have said that it wont crank.

Texas hill country + fine rides + single + early retirement = one happy guy

It should still start with the side stand up and clutch lever in....... just like if you stall it at a light.

Maybe if you actually move it around under power and shift gears.... then the neutral light will clear and work... crazy things do happen.

trying to go thru all the stupid stuff I and friends have done.

question, does everything else power up like it is supposed to and do the head lights go out when you hit the start button?

yep, everything else works, yes lights go out,
but this time I noticed the PGM-FI malfunction indicator lamp comes on. Didn't notice it earlier today. It comes on for about 1.5 seconds then off, no other blinks. Did a search and found this. http://www.syncshop.nl/VTEC/DiagnosecodesVTEC.pdf
Right at the top for no blinks, engine doesn't start.......where are these relays mentioned? am I gonna have to take it to the dealer ? ouchy $$$$$$

I am sure someone on here has a honda service manual for your bike.... I have one, but it is for the 2012-up 2nd Gen 1800 and I know lots of stuff got moved so I know it won't help you.

May have to post another thread asking who has a service manual for your year Wing.

Some also have said they had trouble with the "bank angle sensor" which also kills the engine.

But I would try to follow up on the codes.

"wrote this before reading the link,,,,,, and one of the no blink codes is the bank angle sensor"

Did a search on GL1800 Riders forum for the bank angle sensor and found an article

http://gl1800riders.com/forums/5-gl1...?action=thread

not saying this is your problem..... just trying to toss out some ideas and help you find stuff.

Just for the hell of it, did you try disconnecting the battery let it sit for a few minutes and then try to start. Might be nothing but never know.
