Hi,

Initially, a couple of possibilities that you can check/explore:

  • starting relay (most likely);
  • start switch;
  • starter motor;
  • loose wiring, connector, terminal; and others that could not be discounted
  • insufficiently charged or weak battery;
  • neutral sensor/switch/light;
  • sidestand switch/sensor;
  • alarm/security system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.


any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.

1997 chevy cavalier 2.2 engine, intermittent starting problem. Replaced plugs, wires, coil packs. Sometimes it will start and run like a champ. Other times you can't get ut to start at all. I've...


When you say it won't start, do you mean it cranks but won't fire, or it just won't crank? If it just won't crank, you could be having an issue with the starter relay. The often become intermittent before failure. Many owners do not know there is a starter relay because it was added as a recall item i order to protect the iginition switch from burnout. The starter relay is located in the very front of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

1997 oldsmobile 88 won't start the security light


Im guessing you tried to bypass the key in the ignition/steering column. This is ok unless the actual problem was in the TDM (theft deterrent module) In this case, the 2 wire bypass does nothing. There is another way to bypass this. Check out this link for tons of info and some DO IT YOURSELF options. Ive done several key bypasses and tons of full bypasses. They both work well, it just depends on what part is failing. I think you need the full bypass to eliminate that TDM.

My VTR 250 2003 won't start. The lights are all working when I turn it on but when I go to start it it turns over for a second then it's dead. whats up with that? Battery perhaps?


Very much sounds as though the battery is run down. In such a case you will se symptoms exactly as you are describing them, lights work but only cranks once. If you continue to try and start it, the bike will likely eventually die. It may be possible to push start your bike but your first destination after that should be a battery shop which will perform a free diagnostic of you electric system to make sure it's just the battery or if perhaps your alternator is failing to charge.

Cheers.

Starter


could be the wires need cleaning or new ends.or low battery power. check battery for 12 or 13 volts.if good on volts disconnect starter wire(dissconnect battery first) then hook up dc volt meter to starter hot wire and a ground at the battery.watch volt meter when u press the start button,do you still read more than 12 volts. if not replace solenoid.
