Question about 2001 Ducati 996 S
I had not started the bike in about 6 months. The bike does not do the normal winding noise when the key is initially put in the on position. I can hear a "click" after the normal 1-2 second wind up but no wind up noise. The bike does turn over but will not start. Do you think it is the fuel pump or the relays. I have already checked the fuses. Thanks so much
Yes, it is either the ignition relay which also runs the fuel pump or the feul pump itself is either locked up or just has gone bad. you should charge your battary then try it again and that does not work you can try hitting the feul pump with a small hammer after you have removed it from the tank, this sometimes will get it going again. i've had brand new bikes just out of the crate need a shock to the fuel pump to get it going. it's a contact problem between the brushes and the commutator of the starter motor. something else to look at before toy take the pump assembly out of the tank is to varifey voltage at connector body of the fuel pump under the tank. find an electrical diagram to find out which wires send the voltage to the pump, if you have voltage there at key on then you will have to pull the pump out. hit it with a small hammer on the body of the pump motor and plug the assembly back into the bike and hold the pump upright over a small container to catch gas that may come and turn the key again. if it does not run you will have to buy a new pump.
