I started my 2002 Goldwing today and it sounded like the starter continued to engage. I was close to home so I returned to my garage. I turned the key off but themotor continued to run. I disconnected the positive cable on my battery but still it continued to run. When I disconnected the negative cable also the motor stopped.

If I leave the key in the off position and connect the positive cable to the battery and touch the negative cable to the negative battery terminal the startertries to engage. If I turn the key on with the positive cable connected and touch the negative cable to the negative battery terminalthe motor will start without even touching the start button. Again the only way it will stop is if I disconnect the negative cable.

This happened a couple of months ago. I tested the starter, it seemed to be okay. I tested thestarter relays andfound one was badso Ireplaced it. I guess I should now test the other relay and possibly replace it. Can you tell me what caused this? Are the relays all of a sudden going bad. Is there something else causing them to go bad. Am I looking in the wrong area for this problem? Has any one else had a problem like this?

I would certainly appreciate some info. My Goldwing has 61000 miles on it

Thank You

Rodney

Hi Rodney and welcome to the forum. This is the New Members introduction area, and to that end, sure glad to see you on the forum.

You will get the best technical help by doing a copy of your first post here, and make a new thread post in the Goldwing Technical forum.

Rodney,

Welcome to the forum.

I am pretty sure that you problem is the starter solenoids. There are two of them located under the left hand pannier, just behind the battery. Try replacing them first.

Geordiemuppet,

Thank you very much. I did replace one and now I will replace the other.

I realize now I was in the wrong section on this site for technical assistance. I am learning and hopefully will get the hang of this computer stuff sooner than later.

With people like you here with assistance and advice, I believe this site is going to be wonderful.

Thanks again

Rodney

Thanks for setting me straight.

I'm a little new to the computer thing also. Getting better though (I hope).

I think I'm going to like this site.

Thank you for your welcome and you have an exciting day.

Rodney
