I have a Shandong 110cc four wheeler I bought for my daughter, I have to jump start it every time... I replaced the battery(I did not buy the cheap one either). I am still having the same issue, when

Changed the battery, there is a black box that was getting hung up in the axle, I tied it to the frame above the axle and it seemed to work okay for a month with no problems... I don't even know what the box is or does....

Does the engine turn over till you kill the battery trying to start it? It sounds like your charging system is bad so it could be your regulator or in the cheap wireing go to it. Basicaly there are two wires comming from your magneto (usually whit and yellow) they go to your regulator and there will be two more comming out of the regulator that are red and black. Black goes to ground and red goes to positive of battery. When the engine is runnng the red wire should have more then 12.5vdc going to the battery to keep it charged. If you have a volt meter check this voltage. If its lower then 12vdc the replace the regulator

I would go to a shop that sells & repairs that product

Ask to speak with a mechanic & ask the question

A service manual may help & be able to be ordered there also

SOURCE: 2000 GMC Jimmy will not start

You'll have to check the charging system, fuel system, or perhaps maybe a relay switch that may control the fuel because those including the fuel filter usually go out before a fuel pump is replaced. And also check the alternator and battery. Hope you fix it.

Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

I think a new set of spark plugs and a new air filter would help. The next time it doesn't want to start, don't keep cranking on the starter. That just runs the battery down. You need to check to see if there is fire at the spark plugs. If you got spark, then pull a spark plug and see if it is wet with gasoline. If it's dry, then you will know it's a fuel problem. And don't press on the gas pedal when your trying to start the engine. With fuel injection, that just makes things worse. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to find out if there's a problem with one of the many sensors.

SOURCE: I just bought a 2003 Ford F150, and a warning

The warning chime of 5x5 is a sign that the SRS ( airbag ) light is burnt out, and there is an error with the SRS system.

Verify SRS ( airbag ) lamp operation, turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) the airbag lamp should illuminate. If not, it is burnt out. Need to pull the cluster and replace.
( thread at F150online.com on cluster removal in the how to forum - titled about changing cluster illumination color or installing a cluster overlay ).

Once you replace the SRS bulb, you will get a LFC ( light Flash Code ) of a 2 digit number.
Example :
flash flash flash flash { short pause } flash flash { longer pause } flash repeats the same for 5 times, the solid on.
This is an example of a LFC 4-2. Once you have the LFC start a new problem with the LFC and we can get that fixed after you get the bulb replaced.

I got a 110cc foreign 4 wheeler in 2007, road it 5 times and been in storage till recently. It's only starting source is wireless remote start. It won't even click, I've charged it, new...


Modern batteries don't like to sit unused for 6 years and may not take and/or hold a charge sufficient for starting.
If you don't already have one, you can get a digital meter for <$20 at auto parts or electronic stores.
While checking across the battery terminals, try to start. If the voltage changes very little, then the starter isn't seeing it well enough to draw current; starter, solenoid or a crusty connector can be blamed.
If the voltage falls down to 70-75 percent when trying to start, then the battery is probably dead forever.
Some, but not all, can be restored by applying 2-4 times their normal charge voltage and monitoring it to see if the drawn current starts to climb.
If it does, DO NOT LEAVE THE HIGH CHARGE VOLTAGE ATTACHED UNLESS YOU STAY CLOSE TO IT.
I generally reduce the applied voltage until the current drawn drops to a few hundred milliamps and then check it every few hours to check progress.
If you can get the charge voltage down to 1.2-1.5 times the rated voltage and still have current flow, the battery may recover.

2004 2.2 Olds Alero starter will not start unless I jump the solenoid


My daughter had an alero and frequently it had issues with the security features and had to follow the reset procedure to get it to start. I cannot remenber the reset procedure but it is available online in a lot of places, as so many people have had issues with that car. Something to the effect of putting it in neutral and turning the key to the on position but not try to start it, leave it there for 10 minutes or something and then the car will start. The security lamp would go out. I just rememembered after typing all of that, that the security lamp in the dash display would light or flash when that was the issue. My daughter solved all fo her alero problems. She bought a Mazda 3 , You didnt buy that from Off lease.com during the past year or so did you? Maybe her old car???

cheapest thing to start with is to buy a new battery. they arent built to last. if that doesnt help then its your alternator. sounds like its gonna be the alternator though. you can test it with a test light though or some alternator repair shops will look at it for free. it will only take them a minute to do if you feel like taking the alternator in

My daughter's 2004 vw beetle started slow once, then it wouldn't start the next time. When my husband jumped it still wouldn't start. Do you think it is the battery needing to be replaced?


Most likely it needs the starter looked at or replaced,try boosting it with jumper cables.If it starts go with the battery theory,if not stick to my theory.Hope this helps.

1989 volvo 740 keeps dieing


I sound like your battery is not charging on its own, the battery is charged by the alternator, the easy way to test the alternator is by using a volt meter ( cheap volt meters a found at autoparts stores on most hardware stores starting around 20 bucks) Test the voltage ant the battery with the car off, then start the car, (jump start if nesasary) then test the voltage again. with the car off the voltage should be around 11.5-12.8 alittle more is ok, but not to much lower, with the car running the voltage should change to around 13-14 volts. if the voltage does not change or drops then the battery is NOT being charged. if its not getting charge then check for loss or corroded wires or wire end terminals,sometimes the is an altenator fuse ( usually uder the hood ether the fuse and relay box or at the battery terminal ) if all is ok the alternator needs to be tested at some place, most places like napa, or westernauto will do it for free, it will need to be removed from the car to do this, since at this point it is most likely dead, you will be taking out to replace anyway.
"Good luck, And I hope for it to be a cheap and easy fix"

Radio won't restart after battery change


Sometimes it takes MUCH longer than the 4 hours (up to 8).
Neat system, huh? By the time it resets, your battery is dead and it will shut off again!!! No wonder the stock radio hardly ever gets stolen. Put a trickle charger on the battery, and leave it on for longer. (Make sure your insurance covers theft lol, I did it once and forgot that the key was in my car in the driveway for a full day)
