Try push starting. If it start easily with push starting your problem is either a weak battery (most likely) or a bad starter.

Electric start doesnt seem to be working

If there's no noise at all your battery is either dead (jump start or new battery). If it clicks then there isn't enough charge in your battery to start the bike (charge battery or bump start)

Won't turn over

Even though all your other electrical bits are working it could be that your battery doesn't have enough juice to crank the engine. It doesn't take much power to run the radio, lights, etc, but cranking the engine requires the battery to have a very strong charge. If your battery is more than 5 years old, that's very likely the issue. I'd start there. Also, be sure to check the battery terminals and ground for corrosion and clean if necessary. If replacing the battery doesn't solve the problem it could be the starter solenoid or a loose electrical connection somewhere.

Truck won't start but the horn honks when I turn the key.

Sound like a wire loose. could be the earth cable to the engine, or the main power cable from the battery to the fuse box/ignition switch/starter.

I disconnected my battery and cleaned the cables and re-connected. Now my car will not start. The lights work the horn etc. What do i need to do to start the engine?

the battery may be faulty,just because the lights & horn work doesn't mean that the battery is enough power to start the engine the battery may have a weak sell that breaks down when you engage the starter try turning the headlights on & then try to start the engine & see how dull the headlights become,if they almost go out the battery is very low or faulty......hope this helps......cheers.

95 toyota tercle will not start

1. check the battery if its charged or not by blowing the horn.
2. if the battery is ok try crank the engine if it doesnt crank then you have a starter problem.
3. after you crank the engine check if you have enough fuel on your tank.
4. if it wont start check the ignition system for electrical supply on your spark plugs and if everything fails you got to let a mechanic check your car.

Turning key to start, only hear a clicking noise. Engine would not turn over. Horn was weak, but all other electrical components seemed to function.

Likely your battery. A battery can have enough voltage to operate lights and other functions but be too weak to crank the car.

Take it out and go to an auto parts store and have it load tested.

Indicators, horn and lights don't work yet I have high beam

I am restoring a 1982 Yamaha Virago 750. The OEM horns were shot so I replaced them with standard 12 automotive horns. The problem is that when I push tht horn button with both horns connected, the system won't deliver enough power to run them. However if I disconnect either horn, the other one will work. It seems like the system can't deliver enough current for one. If I connect the two horns direct to the battery they work jsut fine. Is this an electrical system problem (diode, regulator, horn switch, bad ground?) or should I rewire with an aftermarket relay for the horns?

Car shuts off while driving


Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem, but it could be worth a try.
My 2001 turbo had a similar problem when it was low on oil.
The oil light never came on, but it was low enough to cause it to stall.
Seems there has to be enough oil circulating on the camshaft (I think they told me the camshaft, now it has been so long that I am not positive).
Either way, a quart and a half of oil solved my stalling problem.
And the problem got bad enough before I had it towed to the VW shop that it wouldn't start, very much like it had a dead battery or an electrical (starter/ignition) problem, but i still had plenty of power for horn, lights, radio, etc.

Hope this helps!
