Question about 2005 Suzuki SV 1000 S

1 Answer

My Suzuki sv1000s has a short circuit and cannot start

Since a couple of days ago my Suzuki started to have a short circuit which is creating a lot of problems. When I turn the starter key on and I try to switch on the bike either the front panel doesn't light or, if it lights on, it goes off as soon as I try to start the bike with the classical noice of a short circuit. I noticed that, if I turn the stearing bar completely to the right, I can light the panel on and even start the bike but, after driving it for a while, the red led of the front panel goes on and the bike switch off. Any suggestion? Many thanks. Giuseppe Semenza - Italian Consulate General Shanghai

    bike went down and bent bars into tank on rights side and scraped the speedo some.
    fixed damaged bars, mirror and rear tail light.
    noticed the speedo comes on by itself and shows miles.
    also when the front brake lever is pulled with no key, in run or off it will light the speedo and show miles. I thinking short either in the speedo, run switch housing.

You will need to remove the front fairing and locate the loose connection or bare wire,Once fairing is removed,you can locate by turning the power on and touching each connector until the power comes on or goes off,Then just fix the loose connection or bare wire without removing anything else.

Suzuki gs550L will not start in hot humid weather.

Hi, Dan some bikes get "Sun Stroke" after running fine in the morning then shut off and parked in the sun for a couple of hours on a hot day. You get back on the bike hit the starter button and nothing happens or the engine turns over but will not fire. Then you put the bike in the shade for 20-30 minutes and it fires up no problem.
The primary reason for this phenomenon is faulty wire connections in the Starter and/or Ignition Circuit. You may have a wire connection/component that makes just enough contact when cool to start and run the bike, but when parked and exposed to direct sunlight heat causes expansion and creates an "OPEN" in the circuit not allowing the bike to start. You move the bike into the shade for a few minutes, the temperature goes down allowing the connection to contract and make better contact and suddenly "it's a miracle" the bike starts. I know what you're thinking that Gremlin could be anywhere, and you would be right in that assumption, you can take your bike to a dealer, spend tons of "DRACHMA" only to receive validated nervous emotions the next time you park in the sun, then 1 week later it doesn't start. Start by doing a ground check:
Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary. Check all common grounds for the same suspects.
The secondary reason your bike may get "Sun Stroke" is vapor lock although this is a rare scenario it does happen.

There is a fault with the wiring or the element. The fault started as a short circuit but has now blown itself clear to an 'open circuit' (a break). Check the element and associated wiring. I doubt the thermistat is to blame. Cheers

I was riding my 2005 Suzuki LS650 (S40) a couple of nights ago, and my headlight went out. I purchased a new headlight bulb, and that still wasn't the problem. I then tried changing the two fuses,...

Hi, does the bike start and run, if yes, apart from lights and horn check what else works or does not work. If the bike won't start try checking the battery if OK find the starter solenoid and check the fuse on that. I had a similar problem many years ago on a Honda. turned out to be a blown rectifier/regulator. If you do cure the fault please remember to check the battery charging circuit is working properly. At idle a meter reading of around 13 volts is normal this should rise to 14/14,5 volts at 5,000 rpm. Hope this is some help.

Hi, Kayclarke198 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts but have little or zero amps and needs to be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, points/condenser ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
10. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
11. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
12. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
13. Fuel tank empty.
14. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
17. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.

Hi, my 95 honda accord lsi 2.0 doesnt start, couple days ago it hardly started in cold weather, and today it just didnt started at all. Could it be a gas filter, or maybe candles, or gus pump ??..what...

Have you tried checking the battery? Try to give it a jump with another car. Cold weather kills car batteries FAST. Does the car crank over at all? Or does it just make a clicking sound without actually turning the motor? If jumping it gets it started, replace the battery and you shouldn't have any problems. Batteries typically last between 2-5 years depending on their use, if you have a lot of sick car audio and electronics pulling juice, it will cause a "deep cycle" which car batteries were not designed for and that will kill them quick too. If replacing the battery works for a while, but then it dies soon thereafter, you might need to start looking for possible short circuits or current draws. Hope this helps!

Lots of rain, lots of things not working now

Is it a convertible? Mine has the same problem and the electronic control panel is located in under the rear window. I think moisture accumulates and short circuits the control panel. I am not a machanic but when it dries out it is fine.

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses

The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!
