i would pull the tank back off and check all connections and make sure they are tight.you might of bumped something in the harness.

SOURCE: bike won`t start.

Your Crank Position Sensor, or Cam Position Sensor is likely to be the problem. If there is no signal from crank position sensor, bike will not fire the coil. ECM has no referance to position of motor. Making timing imposible.

SOURCE: 92 FXR bike will not start or even turn over

that clicking sound is the starter solenoid. check all large cables for corrosion and tightness. as for the signal lights, neutral and horn, i think a wire is grounding , thus causing the problem with the bike not starting also. check at ignition switch and at handle controls for a loose wire that may be touching the handlebar. basically inspect all the wiring on the bike

SOURCE: Backfire when I get off the throttle and down shifting

no your totally wrong the backfire is bcause if u juice the throttle there is excess fule in the cylinders witch give it no where to go so it ignights and creates a backfire witch is not necessarly bad.

SOURCE: Battery is charged, but bike will not start. When

First, check the "Run/Stop" switch on the right handlebar switch housing. Make sure it's in the "Run" position. If it is, your starter relay may not be working. The relay is exactly like those on your car, a one inch plastic cube. Now, where it's located, I'm not sure. It could be under the seat or behind either of the two side covers on your bike. Once you find it, turn the switch on, hold on to the relay, and push the start button. You should feel the relay click. If it does click but the starter does not engage, you need to test the voltage coming out of the relay.

To test the output of the relay, look at the end of your starter from the right side of your bike. You'll see a five sided plate on the end of the starter solenoid. At the top of the plate, you'll see a single wire plugged into the starter. Unplug the wire and stick a test light probe in the connector on the end of the wire. Again, turn the switch on and press the start button. If the light lights up, your relay is good. If not, the relay is probably bad.

To do a final test on the starter, remove the five sided plate by removing the three small bolts that secure it. You'll see a plunger inside the solenoid. Make sure the bike's transmission is in neutral. Using a large screwdriver, push the plunger into the starter solenoid. The starter should engage and turn the engine over regardless of whether the switch is "on" or "off". Make certain that you push the plunger all the way in. If the starter does not turn, you starter is bad.

Good Luck
Steve

I have no plug wire spark 1997 dodge average 2.5 v6 24 value.have already replaced crankshaft positioning sensor on it and still no spark to the wires


Sounds like a bad distributor. Had you pulled a spark plug out you may have found them wet with gas after cranking. If they are wet the crank sensor is working since both injector pulse and coil pulse rely on crank signal.

The distributors are known week points in the ignition system and used to be common when theses cars where still on the road. A reman will run you $250 U.S.

Im getting no fire to my spark plugs on my 85 Dodge caravan with the 2.6L Mitsubishi engine


Could be one of the following no power coming into the coil or no signal from crank sensor. The vehicle I just got done working on is a 97 caravan with no spark because of no signal from crank sensor

Why car my car start?


No spark? Then there is probably no signal to trigger the spark. Possible causes:
1) Cam position sensor.
2) Crank position sensor (you replaced it)
3) Coils (already replaced)
3) Wiring and connections to and from coils (bad grounding points or bad live feeds)

Suggestion: Stop the guessing and spending with "probable" causes. Have the car scannned for error codes and start from scratch according to error codes.

Car will crank there is no spark have replaced coil and condenser


Test the ignition system output, ignition systems can vary in configuration but operate on the same principal. Ignition systems can consist of a coil, pick up coil, crank angle sensor, cam angle sensor, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, ignition rotor and a distributor and any variations of these components. An ignition coil is a voltage stepper coil that transforms a low voltage (12 volts) signal into tens of thousands of volts needed to jump the gap of the spark plug.

This coil is activated by an ignition module triggered by using the camshaft/crankshaft angle sensor; timing is adjusted by the PCM (computer).This primary electrical signal is generated by the PCM which calculates spark timing by using a variety of sensors including coolant temperature, mass air flow, and oxygen sensors. Go to 2carpros.com for a video on how to check this using a 12v light tool. On the engine repair section search, type, "engine cranks but will not start." If my answer helpe you, please leve good feedback. thanks

Hi there I'm stuck I don't know how to check the


Sorry but they either work or they dont.
If yours isn't working, replace it.
But before you replce it consider checking the other components, because ign mods are exspensive.
it sounds like you've been already checking the other stuff. heres what i'd check if your bike came to my shop.
1. battery fully charged, and can take a load. (weak batteries = weak ign power)
i have a bike that won't fire at all with weak battery. Make sure battery is good.
2. check for spark at plugs, make sure plugs are good. Pull plugs and turn motor over.
rest plug next to head and turn over, do not touch the plug while turning over
or you can be shocked.look for spark.
if you have spark , then you ign mod is working.
if no spark, then check #3
3. power to coils. check the power going into coils,
if power but no spark, then coil is bad.
if no power. check #4
4. power to coils comes from a ignition system ( points/ cdi /ign. module)
there is a stator and a rotor. and a signal generator. on your motor
the signal generator wire sends a signal to the cdi, every time the rotor rotates.
the ignition system (ign.mod) sends power to coil.
so if no signal to the cdi, then signal generator is bad
if signal going into cdi but not sending the power to the coils then the cdi/ ign. mod is bad.

Hope that helps
Best Regards

2003 harley sportster. my bike starts and runs for about 5 min then dies and wont start back up. ive checked and am loosing spark. after it sits for awhile it will start but then dies again 5 min later....


Your bike is not equipped with points. Harley stopped using points in 1979. What you have is a solid state ignition unit and the flashing light is used to time the ignition with. The number of wires and where they should go is dependent upon what type of ignition unit you have. If you can see the unit, it should have a name and model number on it.

Here's a test. Start the bike and allow it to run until it shuts off. Pull the spark plug wire and put another set of spark plugs in them and lay the plugs against the engine so that they get a good ground. Turn the ignition switch on and then back off. Watch the plugs when you turn the switch off. You should see a single spark. If not, your coil is probably bad. If you see the spark, the coil is good.

To test the coil, take all the wires off the small terminals of the coil. Use an ohm meter and put the function switch in R X 1 scale. Measure the resistance between the two terminals. You should read between 2 and 3 ohms of resistance. If it reads any higher than this, the coil is bad.

If the coil checks good, then the problem is in the solid state unit in the timer cavity. If it's an aftermarket unit, you'll have to send it back to the factory to see if it's bad. If it's an aftermarket unit, you can go to their website and look up the technical information and installation instructions for the unit using the model number.

Good Luck

Do you have points or a magnetic pick up that turns the coil on and off?

Points? Check em ... set gap. Your condensor may be done ... Any moisture inside?

Electronic ignition ... is there a mysterious box involved. If yes, it is likely a source of trouble.

I'd suggest you find out what you need for a tune up and do it.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee No Start


I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.
