Check the lead and connections between the coil and the plugs, the battery and the coil. If all else fails check the battery charge.

Battery charger on quantum electric wheelchair starts out ember color then starts flashing red I check wires everything is plugged check it about 3 months ago everything was ok now th chair won't


Did you charge it at all during the 3 months? Did you store chair on a full charge? Check to see if batteries are dead. Batteries should be disconnected and/or stored on a full charge. If left connected they should be fully charge every week.

Honda vtr250 wont start is fully charged an replaced spark plug i think it is flooded


1st,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, check for spark,,,,,remove the spark plug from the cylinder, mount spark plug into its wire lead, hold spark plug body against engine or frame, wile rotating engine observe whether` there is a spark at the gap of the spark plug.2nd,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if there is a spark, check the carb, you can varify a carb fault by spritzing a small amount of gas into the carb wile cranking motor or better use an ether spray, be car-full with this onethis will direct you to where the problem is.if #1 is OK or observed and #2 has no effect to start than your compression may be to low so check your compression.

Week spark the four plugs sre sparking but very week could a faulty batt cause this the bike has not bin startedfor 3 months over the winter


Yes, this could be the problem. With you turning the bike over on the starter a lot of demand is placed on the battery and it may simply be not supplying enough to the coils. Does it turn over slowly? First try fully charging the battery, and see if this solves the problem.

It a 2003 2.0t 93 model. It sat all winter without running. I started it after charging the battery and it ran for about 50-60 seconds, it then stalled out and it wont start again, unless it sits for...


Take the battery in and have it tested to make sure it is fully charged and is holding that charge and that all the cells are good....letting a car sit for any length of time without starting it and letting it run for a bit is bad news. Batteries will go bad. Gasoline left to sit in a car will "go bad" and can leave a coat of varnish on sensitive injectors, fuel lines, etc... Water and debris can ruin the fuel filter. Check the battery first, put some injector cleaner in the gas tank and you may also want to spray the throttle body with a recommended cleaner before trying to start again. It may also help to pull your spark plugs and clean or replace them. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Engine wont turn over at start


Hi, Do you have an alarm & Immobiliser fitted on your bike as these drain the battery on your bike very quickly? If so i would recommend removing your battery and fully charging it with a decent amp-age charger. If you have your garage attached to your house then i would definitely recommend purchasing a trickle charger and when not using your bike keep this plugged into the mains and you should not have this problem again. all motorbike shops sell these chargers If after this the battery goes flat again i would suggest purchasing a new battery. This is a common fault as most motorbikes sit in the garage through the winter months and if not kept on charge will deteriorate. Hope this helps.

Triumph sprint st 1995 wont idle,getting good spark, inside of tank painted brown! is this common? problem started with just riding along and the engine would stop, wait a few minutes start and off you...


Try changing your spark plugs, I have recently had a similar problem with a CBR900, spark plugs seemed to be fine (held against frame outside of engine) but didn't actually work under compression, changed for new and bike now runs like a dream.

Mk1 Cortina engine starting problems


All fords were notorious for starting at one bit but on the Cortina
that I had one winter I had to remove Two spark plugs from 1 and 3 cylinder , take them in the house warm them up on the gas ring then on return to the car pour in a half spoonful of petrol to the "pots" then refit the hot plugs then after 3 swings she would go. The only other solution was to put the car in a nice warm
garage.!!
