I have a 2002 VTX 1800R. I was out yesterday for about an hour. I stopped at a store for a few minutes, and when I went to fire it up, I got my fuel pump sound, but nothing else. My headlights did not come on with the ignition switch and pushing the starter switch got nothing. After MUCH screwing around, I took the advice of a local Honda tech and turned on the ignition and bridged the terminals on the solenoid. THAT STARTED HER UP, but I still had no headlights and it acted the same when I tried to start up again (at the safety of my own home). Also, my odometer reset itself. I just took apart the switch and the spring behind one of the contacts is MELTED to the body of the switch. I could not remove the spring, so I brushed off the contacts and replaced the contact so that it would touch the other contacts when pressed. It worked, but the switch sticks and must be wiggled to retract. Two Q's: What causes this? Can I just replace that switch mechanism? Thanks!
