If the starter button does not result in the starter motor turning, you need to get the wiring diagram for your specific bike (maybe in the owner's manual?) and do some checking. Check out the starter circuit (wiring, connectors, safety switches/relays, etc.) to get familiar with where everything is located on the bike. Check that the battery is fully charged. Hook up a voltmeter to the negative post on the battery and the the positive probe to the starter motor terminal. Turn on the ignition and press the starter button. If the voltmeter indicates around 12-13 volts when the starter button is pressed, then the starter is in need of repair/replacement. If no voltage is indicated, you need to trace back through the circuits (starter solenoid, safety switches/relays, connections) until you do get 12-13 volts. The place where it stops is the trouble area.

I layed my bike down gently and now it wont start. everything comes on but when i hit the start button lights go out but doesnt start. act like a starter or starter switch, but dont know if their is a kill...


Sounds like the battery terminals are loose. I know it doesn't make sense, but that's the most common cause of what you are describing. Just being a little loose will cause the power to fail until you turn the key off and on again.

My mini 4wheeler wont start its been sitting for awhile also it wont even make a clicking sound when i hit the starter dont worry about the bottom of the question its not a motorcycle its a mini 4wheeler...


Charge the battery and check the connections first, and maybe there's a starter fuse. Sometimes the brushes on the starter get dirty form sitting. Push the starter button and gently tap on the starter at the same time and see if it turns over.

Where is the starter solonoid located 04 aveo


You will need to verify if the starter solenoid is getting power when you are attempting to crank it. I dont have a diagram, but the clutch switch may be the problem if you must depress the clutch to start the engine.

Car wont start, acts like battery is dead. battery shows full charge. full lights, buzzers, etc. put it on charger-didnt start...cleaned cable connections-didnt start...tried to jump with truck-didnt...


Check the battery +12v power connection to the starter is in good order,
Check the ground connection between the battery negative and the engine/starter motor is robust and intact.
If no problem with above, replace the starter motor.

Engine wont start...


since have change new battery, will the motor turn over? if the engine turn over or crank, check if you have sparks, by pulling the plug out and ground it to the metal to the bike and turn the motor over and see if you getting spark, double check if you are getting fuel, two items to make the engine run, sparks and fuel. if the stater dont make any sound when you press the start button it may be faulty serenoid to the starter, check starter and starter switch. you can get a light tester and test positve and negative contact to your serenoid/starter by hold or pressing start button to see if you get power to the starter. hope that help some

Wont start


Use a test light on the small terminal on the starter & see if it lights when key turned to start. Should be no power to it when key off and power to it when key turned to start. Voltmeter can be used if no test light.

My engine wont start


check battery for full charge and tight cables.use test light check for power to starter when pushing start button.if there is, check starter. if none check for power to start solenoid on small wire going to it w/ testlight when you press start.if none, check start button, & wiring.if youi have power to it,but no start, take large screwdriver & make contact between both solenoid cable posts,make sure bike is in neutral. should crank, confirming that solenoid is bad.also, even if the solenoid has no power going to it to energize it you can still use the screwdriver trick to get bike to crank.
