Sounds like the stator and/or voltage regulator are not working properly.

    It was your regulator/rectifier which Suzuki recalled in 2011. Get a voltmeter installed as their replacement overcharged my bike causing extensive damage and Suzuki said, "oh well, sucks to be you!"

I have a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz had dead battery was dead, tried to jump start, no luck battery is fully recharged. Turning on key all dash lights and gauges works but nothing when key is turned on. N


If you are sure the battery is charged and nothing happens when you turn the key you have a poor wiring connection somewhere or possibly an poor connection internal to the battery. First, turn on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the headlights go dim when you do that, you have a bad connection. If they stay bright, you are not completing the starting circuit. The most likely cause is a bad battery post connection. Remove the terminals and clean them to shiny metal then replace and try again. If that does not work try it again with a new battery.

Riding lawn mower battery won't hold a charge


It is a battary issue, however it sounds like the engine is not charging the battary so it goes flat, or there is a drain on the battary .

I bought a new battery, the bike road fine for a while the in the middle of my ride it started slowing down to a complete stop. I couldn't start it again, waited for 20mins, started it and it ran...


One explanation for this would be that your charging system is faulty. It is possible that the OLD battery was ok, but was not getting charged by the faulty charge system. You put in a new battery, that is part charged before sale and ran the battery flat because it wasn't charging. If you leave a discharged lead acid bettery for 20 minutes or so, it will pick up a little again and possibly let the bike start and run, but by the time you got home you had killed the battery completely.

All the facts fit, though I'm not promising that it is the problem.

Take the battery off and charge it with a charger. Now, put it back on the bike and run the bike (It should start) While the battery is on the bike, get a volt meter on it. It should read slightly over voltage (doesn't matter if its a 12 or 6 volt system, it will read a little over when the bike is running) when you turn the engine off, you should see the volt meter drop down to the stated battery voltage. If you get no hike with the engine running and drop as you power off, its a good sign the charging system is faulty. A similar test, start the bike, meter the battery and turn on the indicators, stop light and head light to pull as much power as you can, the battery voltage shouldn't dip, because the charge system should compensate. If it does dip, consider this a confirmation that the charging system is faulty.

Wont start batteerry checked ok , if i jump it with cables it starts , but will not start again the next day


the battery may seem ok, but it's obviously discharging itself or not charging during riding.

Try this...charge the battery with a battery charger.
disconnect the charger, and put a volt meter on the battery.
Start the bike.
Rev up to 2000 RPM. If the voltage is not HIGHER than it was before starting the bike, there's something wrong with the charging circuit.
If it IS charging, turn the bike off, and disconnect the battery overnight.
If the bike will not start the next day after reconnecting the battery, the battery needs to be replaced.

If the battery is NOT charging at 2000 RPM, the charging circuit is bad, and is likely what is draining the battery overnight.

I left my key in the on position for a weak on my 2006 1800 vtx. My battery is dead should I buy a new battery or can I start this bike and recharge the battery I'd I ride for a few hours


Take the battery out, check your water levels. Give the battery a good deep cycle charge with a charger before you do anything else.

Yes, You could jump it and ride it for a hefty amount of time. However riding a bike with flat batteries can cause issues on the ECU if your bike model has Electronic Fuel Injection.As the EFI relies on a minimum amount of power to run the ECU(computer), at low revs some bikes are stubourn and rev irregularly to try and produce power from the alternator to compensate for the loss in power from the battery which loads down the electronics when it is flat. If you are going to go for a hefty ride to charge the battery, try to ride out on he open road somewhere and avoid high traffic areas as well as areas where you will need to start and stop frequently.

I tied to jump my 2010 honda odyssey. it ntook the charge, but the horn wouldnt stop even after i started to drive. I turned it off, and the horn still wouldnt stop. eventually the car died again.


this is an anti theft problem because your battery went below 10 volts.try charging battery up to proper levels and reconnecting to vehicle should be fine.

My 2005 r1 wont start


check out the battery and cable connections, battery should read over 12v without the engine running. If there is a corroded connector and the alternator charge is not going into the battery, this can damage the regulator, and they are not cheap.

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

Battery does not hold charge new battery fitted


Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.
