Possible Starter Relay Issues?
Howdy everyone. Im pretty new here.
I drive a 98 Honda Shadow Vlx 600. I have devloped a severe electrical issue.
When I switch my key to the on position all the lights come on as usual. BUT, when I press the start button the relay clicks irratically(almost a electrocution sound). When that happens all the power cuts out and then there is no power what so ever. If I wait a bit, the power slowly fades back on. But after that nothing happens when I press the start button(the power cuts out momentarily tho).
Voltages: With key off ~12.6v
With key on ~12.6v
With key on /w start button pressed ~ 7v
After start button is released ~All over(v)
I have never delt with an issue like this before. Am I spot on with the Starter Relay being the issue? Or are there other known causes for my symptoms?
I guess if it is the starter relay, is there a rebuild kit or would you just replace the whole relay?
Thanks in advance everyone looking for some suggestions to work on.
