SOURCE: Yamaha xj600 doesn't start

hi m8,, i guess u have a neutral light lit up 2,, u need that to start it as well,, no light and she wont go ,, or try pulling the clutch lever in as u push the starter,, ,if none of that works,, then 1st u can do a quick experiment ,, grab a rubber or plastic handled screw driver, and cross the two terminals on the solonoid, if she turns over then the starter button needs cleaning up, or may have a break in the wire,

SOURCE: bike wont start/turnover neutral light goes out

Did the starter work when it was jumped by a car battery? If so, the problem is probably the battery in the bike. Take the battery to an automotive parts house and have it tested. Usually, they'll test the battery for free.

What is the CCA of your battery? Those big engines are hard to start and you may not have a battery with enough "Cold Cranking Amps" to turn the engine over. The old Harley Sprint (1973 & '74) was notorious for this. You really had to have a strong battery in that bike for he electric starter to work.

Some bikes have wiring that disables the starter if the transmission is not in neutral. Check on this as well.

SOURCE: There is no click when i press the start button.

could be either, test starter and solenoid to see if they have power with ohmmeter or wire tester. check battery terminals to make sure they are snug and not grounding out somewhers they arent supposed to.

1985 F-150 351 windsor Engine will not crank.Have new batt,Fender ignition solenoid,starter


You check the relay out for the starter also did you try to trip the solenoid on the firewall to see if it cranks from that just to eliminate because if it cranks from tripping the solenoid and what you stated you replaced is new and not used I would say in the ignition but if you replaced with used parts good chance could be a bad starter unless it was tested as well as solenoid it can be a dud

Why won't it crank or turn over?


If you turn the key and get nothing but you have lights etc, the issue could be the neutral safety switch.

Do the gauges and warning lights work with key on? If not, check fusible links, AM1 for ignition key power. If the gauges/warning lights work, the key switch has power, so you can follow it to the starter solenoid. The start wire out of the ignition switch is a black/white wire, this is the hot wire to the solenoid, and only has power when key is held in start. With automatics, there is only one switch-a neutral start switch- between the ignition switch and the solenoid on the starter .

With a manual transmission, the black-white start wire goes to both a starter relay and a clutch start switch (on the clutch pedal), those two work together to send the power on to the starter solenoid. So, no crank, good battery, power to key, follow the black/white wire, the start relay and the clutch switch, to the starter solenoid- a hot wire there turns the starter motor on.

My dr200 won't start with the starter motor I've taking it out and tested it and it turns over but when it's in the bike and I push the button nothing happens can anyone please help me out cheers


Sounds like the starter solenoid is not transferring electrical power to the starter, or starter relay (if fitted) is not working. Check for a good engine earth. Connect a test light to the starter terminal and an earth, press the button, if it does not light, follow the cable to the solenoid and test for power to the solenoid from the battery, check earth to solenoid body and using the test light check the small wire has power when the button is pushed, if no then you are looking at the relay. Silly question, have you checked the side stand switch, kill switch and neutral switch. These all break the power to the starter solenoid. If you bridge any of these switches, please ensure the bike is in neutral. Good Luck

97 sportster the odometer light came on and nothing else, no oil light, neutral light, head light and it didn't do anything when I hit the starter button. But the horn worked fine normal loudness


Hi Dolphnl, 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 on.
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
7. Security alarm not disarming
Good luck

My 92 600 katana wont start. It wont even turn over, when i press the start nothing happens. the battery is good i charged it up and all the lights work but it still wont turn over.


If the clutch switch, the neutral safety switch, and the side stand switch are all working correctly, then test the starting system. When you push the starter button you should hear a click , so you know the button is working.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Disconnect the two wires that activate the solenoid, test the two wires from the harness make sure the needle on your voltage meter jumps when you push the starter button, this means the button is good. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , the manufacturer does not make replacement parts for the starter.

Starter neutral switch is not functioning causing the engine to n


hi from uk the switch you mention is called the inhibitor switch which prevents cars engine from being started if in gear but allows starts only if in either neutral or park mode question? do you hear click on key start position? or just nothing? may i suggest you check the starter solenoid which is on starter and has positive cable from starter attached along with a thinner cable? also you will/should see a thin wire also connected to the solenoid on a seperate teminal this is the wire from key start ign switch and when key turned to start energises the starter into operation /turn engine ensure this wire is clean/secure? one other thing to check is the earth/ground lead that runs from chassis/body and connects to engine usually in vicinity of rear of engine? all above is assuming that your battery is ok?? hope this helps?
