Question about Suzuki SX4
I have a 2000 suzuki quad master that keeps losing power, which doesn't affect it running. The power(ie,lights, electric start) keeps going off on my atv. When it goes my electric start won't work. If I even give cord a small pull while holding start buttton, it will start to turn over but not catch. I can pull start it and eventually it will come back when i hit a few bunps on trails but will go agin just as fast. I realize i have short but need a wiring diagram or some way to track it down as i've never worked on an atv before. Thanks

SOURCE: Won't run
There are several no cost things you can look at for starting the engine;
) Is an anti-thief system killing the system ?
) Try giving the solenoid on the starter a few sharp hits. Sometime the solenoid sticks. If this works you would still have to replace the starter. It will only work a few times.
) neutral safety switch - This switch on the transmission prevents starting in gear. Try PARK or NEUTRAL.
) starter relay - this is the relay to transfer power to the starter. When you turn the ignition it clicks on to transfer power to the starter. I think it may be located under the hood.
) fusible link - This is essentially a fuse that limits the maximum current to protect the circuit. Believe to be under the hood. They can get corroded or burn out. Your lights will work but the starter will not.
I believe it will be one of above but of course as suggested you can take it to a repair shop.

Perhaps alternator is not charging the battery properly
Test with a voltmeter - fully charged battery should read approx. 12.8 without engine running
With engine running should read 13.8-14.2 .
Check the sparkplug wires and make sure the sparkplus are tight
also check the two basic and very common thinks for this problem.the fuel pump and fuel filter.
if the pump is clogged and filter is dity this can occur.as when ever the fuel gets clogged ,this would make the car stall out and lose power as soon as the engine stopped sucking the fuel due to the debris .
check out this.
thanks,please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.

one reason for that fuse to blow is a bad brake pressure switch on the master cylinder. could be a
warranty/recall item. can also leak brake fluid. also check behind each wheel for any sign of brake fluid,
particularly the rear wheels if you have rear drum brakes. fixed one here recently where the vehicle's jack
came loose in the right rear compartment and short that circuit. make sure your jack is stowed properly.

The common problem with the dashes on the Jeep is contacts. Remove the cluster and try cleaning the electrical contacts with a Q-tip and alcohol replace cluster and try again.
