Obviously a fuze or related problem.  Start there in the troubleshooting.  Is there power to the fuze box.  Has a connection come apart?  Good luck

Tried to install a headlight modulator in a 2011 Triumph Sprint GT. now I have no power whatsoever, battery drained replaced with a new battery and still no horn, lights, or power


It sounds like another fuse is blown or possibly a relay. Check all of them, if none are bad, then make sure your battery cables are good, use a test light to check them. Its more then likely a bad relay though. Good luck !

No power when turning key


Battery is bad. Rapid clicking of starter selenoid is because battery does not have enough to hold spring down in selenoid when it sees the starter load. Battery only has a surface charge (nothing of power). Try a new battery or a jump. Should have lights first, then horn, then starter. If no lights, check all fuses.

02 Mean Streak has no power


It sounds like a power "chip" that controls a set numbers of switches.

2007 fatboy lost the 'flashing' of turn signals (but they still light up), lost horn, lost rear break light. All fuses in the fusebox are OK. I also lost all gauges (speedo, neutral indicator,...


Your turn signals (but not your running lights), horn and a few other things are on the "accessories" fuse in your electrical circuit, I think. If the fuse is not blown, I would guess that you have a bad connection in the power lead for that circuit. I'm not sure of what I'm going to say here because I don't work on the newer bikes but in the older bikes, the "orange" colored wires carried the battery voltage to the individual components much like "red" wires used to do in most DC circuits. I'd look for a bad connection in a plug somewhere. I hope this helps but like I said, I don't know a lot about the newer bikes. I mostly work on the older bikes that the dealers will not work on any longer.

Good Luck

I have a 98 yzf1 bike was running been having issues wuth the fuse for the head light started bike today pulled down the drive way bike shut off turned the key off then back on n nothing no lights horn...


Hi, Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. Also check alternator, so that battery is charging.
Do a test for me, start engine disconnect battery. If alternator is working you should have light and horn. Stop, engine reconnect battery. This will give you a better idea where the problem lies.
Good luck.

The horn not working dt250, have power to wire at horn . Should a horn sound if connected to a 6 volt battery to test horn?


Does the horn have 2 wires or 1? Newer Yamahas have 2 wires....power to the horn, and then a ground wwire that goes through the horn button. If its a 2 wire....jumper the ground wire to a good ground to try the horn...if that works...check the horn button.
If its a single wire horn...ensure the horn is firmly grounded.

Batteries fully charged ok,turn ignition on,no lights,no power to wheel,but pressing the horn it only sounds weak,will not light led lights on lamp.had control box tested and was ok,new ignition switch...


the faults you are describing do match flat or faulty batteries more than anything else.

check that the connections are good on the batteries and that the battery pack connects properly.
i think it would be worth you testing the charger and the batteries to make sure they are working properly. i would not change any other parts until these have been checked.

if the bike was stored in a garage or shed during the winter it is possible that the batteries inside the battery pack may have been damaged by the cold.

if you send make and model and age of the bike i can send you far more detailed testing proceedures, but i would need the details, as battery types and voltages vary from bike to bike.

some bikes have a clutch switch where you have to pull the clutch in to start it, i know a lot of suzuki's have them.
also make sure it is in neutral.
and make sure the 'kill switch; on the right hand bar is set to 'run'

Bike was sitting in garage. Dead battery. Charged it. Fuses good lights horn ect work. Nothing happens when I press start button. No click. Nadda. Ignition? starter? Or am I way off base? Thank you!


I would have the bbattery tested, bike batteries are prone to just going oopen and u have zero output, it is very unlikely anything else is wrong.

All is dead.


I'm always hestitant to offer suggestions on the newer Harleys, my experience is all on 1999 and earlier carb bikes. But try the standard stuff first. No horn or lights leads me to check my connections and fuses starting with the ground for the battery. Torque em up a little and see if it helps
