2002 VTX 1800 C - Not Starting
Good Morning, I have a 2002 VTX 1800 that will not start. I went to go take it out the other day on an unusually warm New England winter day and the battery we weak and would not turn the bike over. I hooked up my battery charger/starter as I have done in the past and set it to the Start function. When I went to turn the bike over something strange happened. The bike began to turn over, and when I let go of the start button it continued to crank I then turned the handlebar switch off and it continued to crank. Then I turned the key off and it still cranked, slower and slower. I quickly disconnected the charger leads and everything stopped. Now, nothing works. I turn the key, flip the handlebar switch and the fuel pump doesn't prime, no lights come on, nothing happens. I checked the two 30 amp fuses and they both seem good.
I am unsure where to look next. Could it be the key switch, the starter solenoid, I am just really unsure where to look. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
