2003 SW. Insert key and turn, and the Ignition is dead, nothing happens, no lights on dash. Battery is charged. Worked fine a few days ago.

I suspect a ingintion switch is bad. Any one have any tips in replacing the switch?

I moved your post from 'Tips On Using This Forum' to 'Silverwing Topics'.

Have you checked the 30-amp main fuse?

It is like going to the doctor.We need to here a little more information before surgery.You say the battery is charged. Did you have a another problem and decided the battery needed charging.
Was there a possibility of reversing the cables when you hooked up the charger and blew a fuse as suggested? Where there any other concerns before this episode? Let us know. Howard

You need to remove the left rear side panel and replace the main fuse. When you look at the main fuse on the starter relay you will probably see a good fuse. You need to pull the rubber to see the fuse block and I think you will find it is blown. Hopefully the spare fuse is good then use it and remember to replace it.

Okay, I'll try and check the main fuse today.
I'll keep you posted.
BTW: I did open up around the Key enough to check wire. I have 12.5 volts in the red wire going to the key when off. When I turn the key on, I get 4.5 volt on all three wires, WiERD.. even the Red one.

Not the main fuse as I suspected, since I had 12 volts at the key.

Can I pull the wires off the bottom of the key barrel. And then can I hot wire to see if the bike starts.
There are 3 wires, Red (power) blue/orange, black/red. Can I jump the red to the other two wires? Or just one or the other.
A wiring diagram would help if anyone can email me one.

To do a basic switch bypass link the R & R/Bl together, but remember that you still need the ignition key to be within 2" of the switch for the immobiliser circuit to de-activate.
Red is live feed from battery
Red/Black is feed for ignition componants
Blue/Orange is the feed for the radiator cooling fan

Thanks, That's good to know.

It appears that even though the battery reads 12.45 volts, the battery is no good. I decided to try a jump, and the bike started. I have never had a bad battery that has read good voltage. Hopefully there is not some strange issue else where.

So I will order a new Battery,

Thanks for all the help

It is not uncomin to have a 12.0 V battery with 12.0V and not be able to start a vehicle.The battery power is through the amps.Honda would be the place to take the battery and have them peform a load test.In the automotive industry the batteries have a much larger amperage capacity and there device would not do the Honda battery justice.A 12.0 Volt battery has to be under a load and have x number of amps at a preset voltage, depending on the seize of the battery.Honda or a decent bike shop will have this load testing device.
