Considering the year model it could easily be a faulty connection from loose or contaminated wiring.,relays.,Alternator..Save time and check rectifier/regulator before wiring nightmare...Start and run engine sitting still at 2000 rpm.for 1 minute..,Shut it off.Carefully touch regulator ...If it is Extremely hot it is your problem.If not take it to mechanic..I would save time and troubleshooting nightmares because wiring will drive you crazy If you know nothing about it..Take to a Motorcycle Tech and let him repair it correctly ...Then he will explain the problem

Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

Well, not necessarily need a professional if you have some basic maintenance experience.

If you look at the engine compartment from the front of the car, the switch is located at right side, very close to the radiator, close to the bottom of the car. You will see the shifting cable as well as an electronic connector on it. You can try if you shift, the cable will rotate the arm on the switch.

According to my experience, it's not easy for the switch to go bad, it may just need some alignment so the switch angle is zeroed in wrt the contact points. There is a line on the switch for alignment purpose.


To replace it is not difficult at all, once you located it, you will see. You can get a used one at junk yard, I believe it will be much much cheaper.

2003 Suzuki eiger starter button doesn't do anything


Hey Brad
With the info you have provided, it seems to point to the ignition switch as the problem. (the clicking you should hear comes from the solenoid contacts - not the starter button). There is probably one wire in the switch that has broken or come unsoldered or other wise not making the right connection.

After replacing battery,extra installed lights come on,but turn of ignition switch ,nothing.


You may have blown the main fuse for the starter relay. Easy to do. If you follow the red positive battery cable to the starter relay (most models) you'll find the starter relay at the other end. There should be a fuse in the relay or in a panel on the atv. Same type square standard sized boxed fuses car use. Best place to start. If you comment or answer with your year, make, model and engine size I can provide a better answer.

**FYI - that's a pretty standard starter relay. That's for a Yamaha Bear Tracker - two fuses - one is the main and the other is a spare that you can pull out and use. When the fuse blows no power. - With your lights - they will still work if attached directly to battery. Relay won't if fuse is blown.

29, 30 & 31 are the starter relay for the model this diagram goes to. Usually the relay is going to be close to the battery, by the way.

The is no power to the ignition dash lights head lights, winch but will pull start


First check the positive cable at battery and at the starter relay that the positive wire usually goes to. Somewhere right around there should be a fuse - that fuse goes out and your ignition system is kaput - pull start or nothing. If nothing at all happens - more than likely your fuse or what...yamaha had them on a lot of the 90s - 00s bikes - it was called a starter cut-off relay - it was a small black box wired in right by the postive cable where it goes to starter relay. Also check your ground cable at battery and where it goes to engine, usually. if all that checks out - let me know your year, make & model and if I have the tech info I can tell you where to start and how to troubleshoot - all the best

2004 yamaha kodiak 400, ran great, now it won't start the next day. kill switch was left on. slid it over, turned it on like i usually do to start it, nothing but a red light (temp ?). it was very cold...


hey Tammy... does the neutral light come on??? if not... find neutral..see what happens.. next.. have your batteries CCA checked.. (Cold Cranking Amps)...the amperage is what makes the starter work..NOT voltage...you can take it to Oreilly's, autozone, batteries and bulbs, or your local battery store...
