If the battery is 2 years old or more then get a new battery. If one year old then be sure each cell has water enough to cover the top of the battery plates then hook up a 1amp or 2amp trickle charger overnight. I know the headline says the bike is a 2008, but how long was the bike on the showroom floor? The banner info can't always be trusted.

Once you get the bike going, Hook up a volt ohmmeter to the battery terminals. The reading should be 14+ volts when the engine is at about 1900 rpm. If the battery still runs down then I would get a new battery.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Keeway xray wont start


Hi, Bernado45 before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

WON'T START CONTINUOUS BUZZING FROM SOLENOID


Sounds like the battery is dead. You can try a jump start and see if the car will start. If it does I wouldn't have any issue with replacing the battery and see what happens. You can also measure battery voltage with a voltmeter. You should see 12 volts with the key off, on, or cranking. If the battery voltage is not 12 volts than it is dead or low on charge. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500. Once again, it wouldn't start. The battery was completely dead, and it would not even start with a jump. Replaced the battery, started fine. But, now the voltage...


Battery was completely dead ? after how long , over night , or just out of the blue ? These year GM vehicle's 03 to 06 have instrument cluster problems , draining the battery . Do you know what parasitic draw is ? Google it . They used lead free solder constructing the electronics , an after a while it causes silver migration .

Hey I went to start my 97 toyota avalon today and it wouldn't even turn over none of the lights would come on or anything..... What's wrong with my car lol


First try jumping the vehicle. If it won't jump you you need to check the main buss fuse in the power distribution box (Should be a 40 amp). If that is good check for a grounded positive going to the starter where metal contact with the wire may have worn a hole in the insulation. If both are good and the inline fuse from the positive is not blown pull the alternator and have it and the Voltage regulator checked at Auto Zone, Advance auto or Pep Boys. One if these is going to be the problem.

Replaced battery, car won't start, engine warning Light comes on as well as "system check" light


The problem might be the starter. If it was a faulty alternator that was the reason the battery died it should start with a new battery, then eventually die. Check and make sure the wires on the connectors for your battery aren't corroded through (wouldn't expect this on a 2006, but who knows). Does it make any sound at all when you try and start it and do the any of the lights (head lights or dashboard) go on? If they do your battery is providing power. If it makes a grinding sound when you try and start it your starter is gone.

Replaced battery on a 1992 Mitsubishi eclipse, still needs jump


THE HIGH LOW IDLE MAY BE A SIGN OF A LOW COOLANT LEVEL.THE IDLE CIRCUIT IS CONTROLED BY ENGINE TEMP.AS FAR AS THE BATTERY.THE STARTER MAY BE DRAWING TO MANY AMPS.THERE MAY BE A DRAIN ON THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM W/THE KEY OUT.
