Switched 12 V wire near battery

I'm installing a auxillary fuse block on a 2005 V Star 1100 and I need to find a wire that only has 12 Volts when the ignition is on to connect the relay to. Where can I find a switched 12 volt wire?

If you check in the fuse box there should be a switched supply in there that you can run a spur off.

SOURCE: battery overcharging

Check your regulator/rectifier output is it according to standard.
Is your battery in prime condition as a minimal caopacity battery retention will make the alternator/charger produce a higher output level to quickly charge the battery to optimal state.
Good enough?

SOURCE: I have a 2005 datona 650, new battery, 12 volts

Hi.

If you do not have lights at all, then it is likely a defective ignition switch

If there is power to dash, but engine is not starting, check or jump the kickstand switch. That is probably causing the fault. Use the service manual. You find the diagrams in section 15 at pages 364-365.

The download is slow. Instead of clicking on the link below with the left mouse button, use the right button and choose "save file as" from the drop-down menu.

Have you load tested the battery? I understand you have a 12 volt reading, but that means nothing if no load has been applied during the reading. It sounds to me like a bad battery...

2005 yamaha vstar 1100 custom will turn over but why wont it start?


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched or kinked.
8. Carburetor float stuck.
9. Fuel injectors clogged.
10. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
11. Check 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.
12. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
13. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty MAP, CKP, O2, TPS, sensors.
14. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
15. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
16. Faulty CDI box.
17. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
18. Tip over sensor needs a reset.

How to connect a pioneer deh-1300mp on a 1964 chevy truck


Simple to do....Find a switched source for 12 volts....Usually at the fuse panel...This connects to red wire on radio. The orange will need constant 12 volts. You can usually tap into lighter wire.

2004 1100 v star. whining starter and no crank. Have switched out starter with another 1100 and it works. Clicking sound heard within the solenoid relay. Any ideas as to what the problem is. It ran great...


Hi, Anonymous it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, must be 12.5 volts or better, voltage from the battery to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid can not drop more than 1/2 volt of battery voltage.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohmmeter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buy a new one.

When pressing starter button it just clicks, starter motor ok check wiring out found to be ok


sounds like the starter relay is begging for amps,, have the battery LOAD tested, you may have a voltage that reads 12 volts, but the amps aren't there to move the starter, one bad cell in a battery will cause this to happen

Im installing an aftermarket stereo in my 2002 Grand Am.. I bought an expensive harness and its not working.. I have the radio working, but the ignition wire from the radio is hooked up to battery...


This vehicle does not have a switched power suppy in the factory harness. The orange wire in the car harness is a constant 12 volts.
To resolve connect the 12 volt power supply from the head unit to a switched circut at the fuse block and this will resolve your problem.
