Question about 2008 Sachs MadAss 125

Open Question

Madass 125 starter not working

Starter stopped working suddenly after cranking without starting for a long period of time just as the battery was getting low. The engine runs perfectly and kick starts with ease. The battery is new and holds a great charge, the starter switch is conductive and has been ohm tested. The starter has been removed and bench tested and turns immediately and with ease when 12v is applied. Where to look next?

SOURCE: after motor work starter runs when power applied

sounds like starter solenoid is staying energized sending continued power to starter. need to make sure you plugged the right wire from the starter button and not another hot wire w/ fulltime hot. also if thats ok need to test for power turning off to solenoid when releasing button. if thats ok try tapping on solenoid. lastly, make sure your positive cable from battery is hooked to starter solenoid, then another hot cable(longer) hooks from solenoid to starter, if you hook long hot cable directly from starter to battery, starter will continueous spin.

SOURCE: my honda vt1100 c2 starting problem

If you can hear the starter run, but no motor turning, the starter clutch is going bad. It is what allows the motor to turn over with the starter, and it idles while the bike is running.

SOURCE: hard starting at times when hot excessive cranking

This happens when the engine trys to fire on the first "upstroke' of the pistons before those big flywheels get to spinning. This is common on stock ignition systems as far as I know. Harley may have changed the systems and I might not know about it but I doubt it. Some aftermarket systems, such as the Crane HI-4 have a spark delay system. The plugs will not fire until the engine has turned over three times. This gets those flywheels spinning and eliminates the start up kick back.

good luck
Steve

Why wont my jeep start some times put lots of new parts in and its been at a jeep dealer for 2 weeks and they cant figure it out its like the Batt has been unhooked it will start fine then the next ti


you meant it wont crank? , right?, no A/T car starts, until cranked. so......what is it.????????
if you learn the art if testing, you win this battle.
here they are.
NO CRANK 101: (rule 1, it must be failing to find a cause)
it not failing, nobody can fix working cars, but they will try, and charge you for doing nothing at all. your choice.
its failing....
  1. does it crank with jumper cables to running car?
  2. are all 4 ends if the battery cables clean and tight?
  3. when you hot wire the starter solenoid, keys in pocket , does it crank now?, if yes, good, if not the starter systems are failing.
  4. if yes, it cranks now, then the KEY line is dead.
ill stop here,,,,, if key line is dead, wiggle the shifter, or try neutral cranking.. at shfiter. (bingo that>?)
battery at 12.6vdc charged and rested before starting the tests.
use a cheap voltmeter.

put what parts in?, do tell , the battery would be first. no?
try a loaner battery?

if the car always cranks then say so, that is called
cranks but does not start. period.
answer the simple questions and we can take you to the cause.
my voltmeter has never lied to me yet, in 50+ years.


lets say it cranks all the time.

Cranks but wont start


Likely a fuel delivery problem.

Check the filter, as it may be clogged and due for replacement. To test for fuel delivery, open your airbox and spray some starter fluid (purified ether, usually) down into the throttle body while someone else cranks the engine. If it fires up and runs for a few seconds but won't run without spraying the starter fluid, then you know you've got spark and compression. If that's the case, there could be any number of potential issues: throttle position sensor (not very common, but it does happen), fuel injectors clogged (common if you use low-grade fuel), fuel filter/strainer clogged (filters should be replaced every 30k miles or so, on average), fuel pump failure (you should hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when you crank the engine).

If the starter fluid doesn't help, then the problem is no spark. Check each plug/cable for fouling.

Below are possible causes for your issue

1. Ignition switch is failing
2. Starter relay is failing
3. Battery connections are bad
4. Battery has reached end of useful life
5. Stater is bad

2002 s2000 will crank but not fire


your battery may be dead dead. The electric clicking is a telltale sign that the battery is weak or depleted and does not have enough juice to turn over the starter. This is extremely common when the car is left to sit for an extended period without being used.

the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter, but the battery is to weak to do so.

There are a couple solutions. First you can get a set of jumper cables and jump the s2000 with anther battery. Once the car is running the battery will alutomatically begin to recharge.

the second is to buy and use whats called a trickle charger or 'battery tenderizer' this is a small device that you plug into the car and it will automatically keep the battery charged over extended periods of time without the risk of over charging the battery. If you use one of these it will also slowly charge yoru current battery enough overnight for it to work in the morning

Would not start...just suddenly. Now clicking under the dash..relay I assume. Replaced relay, no change, still won't start, not the battery. Lights surge off and on, dash works off and on.


Changed the starter and solenoid one time. Cranked and started two times normal. The third time it did not crank, just a clicking from the dash. Checked where the clicking was coming from and found out the solenoid on the fire wall was it. Changed that part but it still did not crank just clicked. There are two soleoinds on this truck, one on top of the starter and the other one in front top of the fire wall. There the battery cables connect to that solenoid to the starter and the alternter. The truck has power to everything, just will not start.
