95 Honda Nighthawk 750 will not start--only clicks, even with new battery

When I push the START button, I only hear a click, but lights work fine and new battery produces same results. Please help--I am far from home and stranded.

    What voltage do you get at the battery while trying to start? What voltage do you get at the starter while trying to start?

If you are hearing a click and the battery and cdi box are good, than it is most likely you solenoid. Try tapping on the solenoid while try to start it. You can also try to run battery cables straight to solenoid to make sure it is not the starter swtich. You can also use a screwdriver and jump it across solenoid terminals and see if it turns over that way.

Double check all cables are clean and in perfect metal to metal contact.

I try to start my vitara but all it does is clicks and the gas gauge moves up alittle then drops back down acts like it not have any gas and yes it does have gas


The clicking that you hear is the starter solenoid. You either have a dead battery, or a corroded battery cable connection. You cant always see the second one, so it's best to clean the connections wether or not you think they look corroded.
Either way, jump starting or push starting (if it's a manual trans) will get you home.

My 2001 Yamaha R1 has an issue. I put the key in and turn it on, everything lights up fine, but when I press the start button nothing happens.


If you push the starter button and hear a click the starter button is good. If you do not hear a click, put power to the two skinny solenoid activation wires(+ and -), if you hear a click now you have a bad starter button. Clean or replace the switch. Follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid, short across the battery power cable and the starter power cable. If the starter works you need a new solenoid. If you tap on the starter with a plastic hammer while holding the starter button, and it works, you need new starter brushes.If you take the starter apart and the coils are burnt or the armature is shorted you need a new starter.

When i press the start button it doesnt do anything....i can hear a click noise but thats it....it will bump start but i havnt ridden it far after its bumped just in case.... why would it not be starting...


If you can hear a click then your solenoid sounds like it is working.First you should check your battery voltage and if not over 12v charge your battery and this should solve the problem.If not it could be your starter and you can come back to me.

Please do though leave positive feedback if I have helped

Thankyou

Push starter button and no start


Hello,
Evansville! Nice part of the World.
Bud's Harley Shop still there?
O.k. daft thing is the off run switch on the handlebars turned to off?
Failing this will the bike start and run off bumping (Push start).
If it does take a look at the battery (Maybe Dead cell/s) or Starter solenoid wire/fuse.
Solenoid is located near the battery it is the cylindrical item with the main pos+ wire from battery going to it.
Good Luck! could do with a new Bud's Harley 'T' shirt as mines worn out.

I have a laptop: Acer Travelmate 2300. My problem is my right mouse button works fine and can hear a healthy click. when you push the button, but my left mouse button doesnt work, i have to push it...


mice have this small tiny switch inside where it catch your click, if your mouse got too far on in other word it is too old, this is totally the main problem, that switch maybe brocken, and there is no other way to replace that small thing. if is new well use the warranty. if not is time to replce it.

Sister, there is no pilot light on this model. Sounds like you have a bad ignitor, however the F7 code shows as a bad touch pad membrane. d7 must represent how many times this fault occured, although Im not finding anything that shows a d7 code. Try resetting the board by killing power to the range for about a minute. After turning the power back on press the COOKING TIME, DELAY START AND NUMBER 8 PADS ALL TOGETHER. The words test should be displayed. Now you are going to energize the bake circuit; press the bake and start, you should hear a click, this is the bake relay on the board. By holding the start button in you are energizing the ignitor (glow bar) in the oven. If you do not hear the click, suspect the control board. If you do hear the click and the ignitor is not glowing, you have a bad ignitor. Have someone with you to verify the ignitor is glowing when you are holding the start button in. To exit the test, just push CLEAR/OFF key pad. Catriver...post back
