Check your main fuses under the hood and the fuses under the ash as well. if those are fine then you will need a new switch

Cant get fire on plug for a 200 bear tracker 4 wheeler

When checking for spark at the plug make sure the outer metal part of the sparkplug is grounded to the engine, make sure the main ignition switch is on, make sure the emergency switch on the handle bar is set to the start position and make sure the atv is in neutral.
After checking all these things above and it still fails to fire or spark at the plug then check all or any wiring, wiring connections and or connectors that you have intentionally or unintentionally disconnected while woking on the atv and also check all the fuses.
If all these check out as good and the atv still won't fire at the plug you will need to test other things such as the igntion coil, pickup coil but you will need a volt/ohm meter and the specifications for these in order to test them.
In order to get this information go to the Yamaha ATV Forum and you will see a sticky note posted by oxidized_black in regard to Yamaha Service Manuals go through each page until you get to a download LINK for a 1999-2001 Yamaha Bear Tracker YFM 250XL(C) Service manual link. Click on that LINK and download the PDF file to your computer this should provide you with more than enough information to test and find your ATV problem.

88 nissan truck wont start

I traced a similar problem in my truck to a rubber bumper on the clutch pedal which had disintegrated so the disengage switch was not being closed, preventing the ignition from working.

I bent a piece of aluminum flashing to contact the switch when I push the pedal to the floor and it works every time.

2001 beetle stopping after running 10 mins. vehicle was hit on right side no airbag or window damage all wiring intact remote will open locks won't close or open rear hatch. Fuel pump,filter checked...

Do you have a "spark"? test: remove a sparkplu wire from a convenient sparkplug and lay it down on a nearby metal ground. Crank ignition and look for a spark from the end of the cable to the metal ground.

Spark? Then it may be the fuel safety cut-off switch (with a delayed reaction) ... mounted in the back, inside a side panel. It cuts off fuel when it senses a collision.

No Spark? ... ignition relay switch or the cable from starter solenoid, most likely.

Key won't turn

look at the bottom side of your steering column, the plastic covering... There's a little round plastic piece that is removeable, it's pretty much right under the ignition key switch. Remove it. If you can see up in there, there's a small round metal piece, that's the release for the key to turn. Try pressing is gently with an ink pen and turning the key at the same time.

Getting my truck to start

Sure I just replaced mine today. Its easy, first get a scratch awl or a very small pilips screw driver, put your key in the ignition and turn it to the postion where it would be if your vehicle would be in if the motor was running, next take that sharp scratch awl or small philips screw driver and on the botom side of the switch housing pointing to about your right knee when sitting in the drivers seat you will see a small hole just under the base of the ignition switch a small hole, put that sharp scratch awl in that small hole and with one hand wiggle the key back and forth in the running positon, you will feel the awl go in a little bit and after that pull the key and the ignition out of the side of the steering column, the key and the igntion will all come out as one unit. The same thing goes for putting the new one in place. Good Luck!!
