Are you certain you have the correct key and it is inserted properly? If yes to both, you might try cleaning the lock with a little WD-40. If that doesnt work your alternatives are (1) call a lock smith (2) replace the switch.

How can you check crank position sensor?


1 - Turn the key in the ignition to the "Off" position. Turn the "Run/Stop" switch to "Run." Push and hold the odometer "Reset" button. Hold the "Reset" button and do not release it yet.
2 - Turn the key to "Ignition," but don't start the engine. Release the odometer "Reset" button. Wait for the odometer to indicate the bike is in diagnostic mode by displaying "Diag." Push the odometer reset button and then release it when you see the "P" in the menu selection flashing.
3 - Wait for the bike to complete the diagnostic of the electronic control module and the ignition control module. Write down the codes that are displayed after the diagnostic is complete. Code PO374 indicates a failed or faulty crank position sensor due to a synchronization error.

Ignition turns but bike dont start


I read your problem as bike turns over on starter but won't fire up. Check all fuses first, check the fuel if it is old get new fuel. Did the problem suddenly happen or has the bike been standing for a while.

Have you checked the kill switch is set to the run position. Has the fuel gone onto reserve. Try opening the filler cap and leave it open while trying to start. Do you need to pull in the clutch lever to start the bike, my Suzi SV will crank over but only starts when the clutch lever is pulled in. Do you have alarm fitted if so it may have disabled the ignition. If your ignition key has an electronic chip fitted this may be the cause of your problem. If normal ignition/key are fitted has the switch got any thing inside it i.e. water that has shorted it out. Spray switch through key slot with WD 40 or similar. Try removing 1 spark plug cap fit an a spare spark plug into the cap and lay it on the engine. Does it spark when the engine turns over. If so possible a fuel problem.

I crossed the pos and neg terminals while jump starting my bike and now nothing happens when the key is turned on. What happened?


You have probably killed the battery and all the electronics on the bike. Get the bike checked by a qualified bike technician/electrician.

Hi, Blinddogs12 nice novella you obviously have a wiring issue that requires a professional diagnosis for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Bike batteries need full charge to start a bike, if there is less than full charge you can't even push start them. No click generally means no charge, the clicking sound is the solenoid working.
When you just start the bike and run it at idle, even fast idle. The battery does not get sufficient charge. What you take out of it to start it, is more than what you put back in it when you run it at idle. Bikes need to be at road speed to charge efficiently.
Also just sitting around they discharge, you may have an earth leak also. That causes your battery to discharge at a more accelorated rate than normal. If it has a clock in it, this bleeds off a small amount of power but still enough if it isn't being correctly charged.

When i try o put the battery in - with the key out, stand down, etc - it starts the engine


When you say Start the engine...do you mean the starter engages and starts cranking engine?
If thats the case most bikes use a starter relay (aka starter solenoid) that has a cable directly from the battery to it. The starter button with the key on, energizes the relay, so the solenoid sends power to crank the starter.
If the solenoid is stuck in the closed (electrically) position power will flow to starter whenever the battery cables are connected. So the solenoid needs to be replaced....you could try tapping it to free the contacts but its probably damaged.

If the bike is cranking and starting and running without the key in, it would suggest multiple wiring issues or mods have been made.

It's electrical problem, it seems like something is draining your bike's battery, not letting enough current to go to starter for a strong engine cranking, I suspect there might be a short circuit within the ignition switch and/or wiring, as you said the bike keeps running even with the key out.

My bike wont start up, fuzes are good, oil good, new battery. Bike wont turn over to star.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, determine if there is a clicking sound when the START button is pressed. The click is significant. If there is, this indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either indicate a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:
  • with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
  • have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
  • determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
  • while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
  • if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
  • if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty.
If there is no click, you may want to check the alarm/security/immobilizer if your bike is so equipped. others to check would be side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral light indicator.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Will not fire


When you turn the key, do all of the little lights on the tach light up and stay lit before you try the starter ? I ask because my key-switch has become a little fickle this year. Sometimes when I turn the key, I can hear the electronics going through the pre-start sequence, but, only one little light on the tach comes on, and then I know that it's gonna act up a little. When that occurs, the engine will crank but will not start. Have to turn back the key and do a little jiggle and wiggle of the key on the tumblers while turning the key to get everything working
