Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting System 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 if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid 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, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: bike will not start no power

Touch a 12" piece of wire to one terminal then touch the other end of the wire to the other terminal. Got a really good spark? No spark = bad battery. Okay, so you do get a good spark. Check the wiring harness for an unplugged wire. Also check for loose connections and burned wires. Bad ignition switch? Kill switch turned on?

SOURCE: bike wont turn over

Use the voltmeter to check the battery while you are trying to start the bike. If it drops below 10v the battery is bad. If it stays at 12v or more look for a loose cable or poor ground.

SOURCE: will turn over but not start

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

You may want to check for the presence/absence of spark. Temporarily remove one of the plugs or use an old but known to be good / spare plug, attach the plug cap, allow the metal end of the spare plug to touch the engine and crank. There should be spark on the gap of the plugs. If not then the problem is in the ignition system. If no spark, try starting with the sidestand folded, clutch lever pulled and ensuring neutral light is lit.

Pls postback results.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Cant charge it Lights keep blinking and the only thing that works is the horn.

Before charging, make sure the unit is turned off. Connect the charger to the wall outlet first and then to the chair. Check that the battery cables are attached fully to the control box. Turn on charger. After charging, remove charger and verify the unit is fully in gear. The levers must be fully in the up position. If the lights still flash, some wiring is probably loose, or the drives are not fully engaged.

Electric start doesnt seem to be working

If there's no noise at all your battery is either dead (jump start or new battery). If it clicks then there isn't enough charge in your battery to start the bike (charge battery or bump start)

Battery getting discharged!!

Of course the electrical items don't work when the battery is out, the battery is the source of all electrical power used in your motorcycle. Discharging within 20 days ... a battery sitting all alone by its self will lose about 1% of its charge daily just because ... it is not a law ... a rule of thumb. Typically, the alternator on a motorcycle is there to charge the battery, (not run the bike) the battery's job is to provide electrical power to the items on your bike, in the amounts needed, at the proper time. Typically, after you start the engine, the alternator has to 'work hard' to get the battery caught up, because of the power removed from the battery by the starter. After that, the alternator just cruises along charging the battery when required and resting when no charging is required. Have you added accent lights to your motorcycle? If yes, the receiver for the remote control operates all the time and will drain your power faster than the 1% per day previously stated.

To overcome this problem (it would appear you are not an every day rider) get yourself a "battery maintainer" a small charger that attaches to your battery via a plug. Plug the maintainer in when you are not riding and your battery will be fully charged every time you want to ride. BTW, if your battery is low or dead and you jump it to get going, you will not necessarily start charging your battery just because the motor is running. Alternators require 12 volts in (from the battery) to get charging power (for the battery) out.

Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.

My 98 civic when driving it shuts off loses all power...turn key off n turn on again like reseting it starts up why is this?

It sounds like you have a major electrical issue or bad (shorting) battery. When you say it loses all power, you mean radio, lights, horn etc? Clean Battery terminals & look for ground wires that need to be cleaned & reattached. Check the black ground cable that goes to engine block. The more I type the more I think its a bad ground somewhere or the battery is shorting out inside the case. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

Sounds like it.

Check ground at engine.
Check the main fuse to be sure it is secure.
Any trouble starting?
