Take the 3 ( I think) screws out of the bottom of the switch housing and lift the top up. The wires are held on the switch with screws, put both wires under 1 screw.

Any idea why it is saying this?
Probably an aftermarket manual?

In my humble opinion this is a perfect example of why sub-forums are not a good thing.
Yer right, I just assumed it was a trike but it doesn't matter, it's a technical issue with the motorcycle.

When checking wiring it is best to push the wires towards connections rather than pulling them. I see people pulling on harnesses and it only makes a fault harder to find.

When I pull the reverse all the way back the headlights go out. But no reverse light. Still no starter action when I press starter button

Just for your information, the reverse light on the 1500 will not come on if the engine is not running.

Kill switch only kills the ignition on my '96 so it looks like it's '97 and up.

"I checked the voltage from bat to the 2- terminals on starter selonoid, no power on either the red or blue.
I am baffled."

Is this with the switch on and starter button pushed? If so back up from the starter to the first relay, test both sides of relay with switch on and starter button pushed. Where are you putting the ground probe of the voltmeter? Try both the frame and then the battery post (not - cable). Sorry, I don't have a 1500 manual but I'm sure someone will come along and help with the relay names and locations to test. Good luck.

Cycle ma'am, when you say short out you mean between the 2 terminals on the selonoid right?
Yes use a screwdriver or something with an insulated handle and short the 2 posts.
