Hello look at the kickstand if you have a alarm switch on the motorcycle it will be a switch near the kickstand maybe that is broken and it will not let you get a spark, follow the cable that goes to the switch and unplug the cable then in that cable it will be 2 wires just tape them together and it should work, you should get the service manual for the vn1500 vulcan from the below link it will help you when u have other problems:

SOURCE: No ignition spark

Check your fuses haven't blown and the plugs are all pushed in tight. You may have a scorched plug failing that but that only really comes from using a booster.....a nail file can cure that though.
Is your starter motor working? If not attempt to bump start it, but make sure it's in 2nd gear.

Car wont start after pulling out the spark plug leads and then attempting to start as an anti theft procedure. could be a electronic distributor malfunction?


You pulled the wires to test anti theft. Or pulled them to see if there was spark because of anti theft? Year make and model helps. Older cars did kill the spark. Newer ones on kill the fuel.

1997 Pontiac Firebird, will not crank. Changed fuel pump and the relay, now the security light is coming on and injectors will not engage...HELP


On my '97 Camaro, the first thing I hear when turning the ignition key is the fuel pump run and the fuel rail pressure up. .
First thought is, manual cars must have clutch depressed and auto cars in Park or Neutral to enable cranking. If these inhibit switches are faulty then that could be your problem. Had an old 5-speed manula Pontiac Fiero with a faulty inhibit switch. I just bypassed the switch with a piece of jumper wire. Just had to remember to ensure car was in neutral when starting!!
Do you have a shop manual with wiring diagrams? The Haynes manual schematic covering both Camaro and Firebird diagram shows a theft deterrent relay between the starter key switch and the main starter solenoid mounted on the starter motor. This relay actuating coil has a volts feed on one side of the coil from the inhibit switches fitted to ensure the car is in Park or Neutral for Automatics or the clutch must be depressed for manual cars. The other side ot this relay coil is grounded via the Theft Deterrent Module.
There is also a further fuse. Number 16, a 3 amp fuse labelled "Crank fuse" that is labelled as going to the Diagnostic Energy Reserve Module. Not sure what that is but with the fuse labelled "crank fuse" it sounds important!! it may be linked to the theft deterrent module but my manual is not clear on that.
If all the fuses are OK then I think the problem lies in the anti theft system.
To bypass the anti-theft and enable cranking you could simply break the yellow/black wire from the theft deterrent relay and ground the relay coil. (cut the wire and connect to ground / chassis, the bit going to the relay not going toward the anti-theft module) Turning the starter key should then apply volts that are coming from the transmission inhibit or clutch inhibt switches to the coil of the theft inhibit relay. This relay then pulls in and applies vots to the main starter solenoid and so enable cranking. The starter solenoid should be heard as a solid thunk as it pulls in. Small relays as a tick.
If this works then wire in a hidden switch in this ground wire to act as a unique anti theft device.
However if the vehicle control electronics are also fried then you will still have problems.
Hope all this is of some help and best of luck.
Cheers, Brian. (Over in Manchester, England, Europe)

My imoboliser is broken. so how do i start car if imoboliser is broken


General anti-theft devices are connected with the original car ignition switch wiring harness on the firing line first connected to the anti-theft device, drawing a line of fire from the anti-theft device into the ignition switch. You can the combination switch the first guard removed, and then find the ignition switch, disconnect the two lines you will be connected with the anti-theft device, FireWire directly to the original vehicle wiring harness plug connected to the ignition switch on, you can normally start.

Check the small wire going to the starter relay. It should have 12V when the ignition is in the start position. If it doesn't, you either have a bad igntion switch or a wiring problem from the switch to the relay. If you don't have a volt meter, you can use a 12V test light. Let me know if you need more help.

Hi, I don't see anything in the wiring diagram to cause this behavior except the ignition switch itself. I recommend you check for power to the coil in both the start and run positions of the switch. You can use a 12 volt test light for that purpose. Hook the test light clip to engine ground and touch the probe to the yellow wire on the coil. If you do have power in both positions of the switch, the problem may be with an anti-theft system that is not showing on the wiring diagram. If you had an anti-theft system that was acting up, there would probably be a light blinking on the dash. Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Check if equipped for anti theft system. Usually the anti theft will allow for initial spark and then kill the fuel injectors!
Disconnect the battery and have it recharged and tested, if it fails the test replace it. Use the key and manually lock and unlock the drivers door if the alarm is still set, There is a switch attached to the door lock that disables the anti theft. If the driver's side is defective switch you have to do this from the passenger door.

Hope this helps?

I need to disable my alarm on a 1997 bmw 528i.


Now im not sure since the manual says your model has the same alarm system as the 328i and on the 328i you can remove the module to disable by doing the following. you can unplug the control module. It is located under the glove box. Climb under the dash on the passenger side and remove a few screws on the trim panel under the glove box. Theres a black control module with a green connector. There should be a lock tab on the connector. press the lock tab and pull out the connector. The alarm should now be disabled. But if it has the special transponder key this may not work.
But if the only reason you want to disable it is because of the motion sensor setting of the alarm for no reason there is a solution for this. To disable the motion sensor, hit the lock button to arm, then hit lock button again within four seconds to disable motion sensor. Red light on rearview mirror should flash four times, then pause, then start flashing on regular intervals. this is most likely the reason if your having the issue where the alarm goes off every 20 minutes.
If you want to completely remove it below is a wiring diagram taken from the manual for you alarm system.
this is from the manual its the alarm wiring diagram.
