Can anyone help me out on the direction i have to have the switch in. Replaced me stator and im pretty sure it turned because no i have no nuetral light at all. Really dont want to bypass it.
most members don't know how to work a ohm meter, let alone own one, if your video guy would show a honda switch with the plastic part, and the letter N on it ?, then this would make it very simple for the OP, and members on how to line them up, and install the switch.The guy on the video actually shows how to line up the switch in a neutral position if there are no markings on it.
If this is the piece of plastic you are refering to. I would say its seen its better dayson the switch itself, where the long tang is poking through the round part that sticks into the end of the shift drum, that long rolled pin is above the plastic under it, look very closely at the top of the plastic, there is a letter N stamped on it, now..the longer end of the rolled pin should face/hoover over the letter N, this lines the switch up.
Looked on line and can’t find a new neutral safety switch anywhere. Everywhere i look says unavailable. Currently looking for a used one but also having no luck.I would say your correct...lol. you need a new switch, the plastic is missing that would have that letter stamped on it.
install the switch, long tang facing the letter N , install back in the engine, if you out it together right ?, you should see a neutral light when you turn the key on ?.I got a new safety switch. But it still doesnt work. I have power to the right side of the plug and none on the left like i should. When i try to use a jumper wire it blows out the 15A light fuse. Im stumped. Unless its the plug somewhere. Whats weird is it worked fine whenever i pulled the motor.
I did exactly that and nothing. I went to a local atv shop and the one i have tested good in nuetral and reverse. Thing that gets me is the fuze blowing. Acts like it has a short somewhere.install the switch, long tang facing the letter N , install back in the engine, if you out it together right ?, you should see a neutral light when you turn the key on ?.
I understand, but i have power going to the plug where the switch plugs in. But when i plug the switch in i check the postive wire on the switch is has no power.The way the switch works is it makes ground for the light. It does not provide power. When the switch is turned to neutral you should have contenuity between the wire and the engine case.
Tested it some more in different places. I have power going all all the way to the safety switch. So im guessing its not grounding out. Could it be in the plug making it not ground out?I understand, but i have power going to the plug where the switch plugs in. But when i plug the switch in i check the postive wire on the switch is has no power.
lets back up a bit, after the switch is installed in the case, installed in the engine into the back end of the shift drum. you then plug it into the harness side. once the transmission is put into neutral, the switch should have 12 volts too it, when your in neutral, it should show on the display on the dash ?. if your blowing fuses, then you have a short some where in your wire harness.I understand, but i have power going to the plug where the switch plugs in. But when i plug the switch in i check the postive wire on the switch is has no power.
the switch is suppose to have constant power at all times !!!. what part of this in this thread did you miss ??????????????.It has stopped blowing fuses, but now i have constant power to the switch. I can turn it from N, which from what i understand the loop should close and not have power but it still does. Iv checked grounds, chased wires. Really at a stand still on what could be causing it
