No worries! I hope its all it was! Keep us posted!
For intermitants you really need to know how to check the wiring and have the right tools. At the very least you need a 12 volt test light but that is so so, you really need a digital volt ohm meter (DVOM). First you should get the schematic and check the battery input to the ignition switch. Second if that is good, is to check the output when the switch is turned to crank. Third if that passes is to check the input to the starter solenoid from the ignition switch. Fourth if that is good is the output from the soleniod to the starter with the key in the crank position. Also if there are relays in the circuit they will also need to be checked for the corrrect inputs and outputs.
To properly diagnose electrical problems, so you don't breakdown (lose money), you need the right tools and the service manual or pay the man to do the repairs.
Your starter is like a automotive starter, the solenoid is part of the starter.
So if the solenoid went bad you would have to replace the starter?
That is something you would have to ask a Honda dealer, I am not sure.
I would assume if anything was wrong with it you could get it rebuilt also??
You really need to pinpoint the problem before assuming it is a starter.
I am not assuming it is the starter at all, just curious about the solenoid being part of it. I am hoping I got the problem fixed as stated earlier in the post. Thanks as always!
I had the same problem with my SMZ 24/52". Dealer replaced the switch and no more problems. Mine was also blowing the fuse.
Just to update everyone, the starting problems have not reoccured once since making the fixes listed earlier in the thread. I really think the ignition switch may have been the issue. Thanks again Mickhippy!
My pleasure! Great when its just simple things aint it!
