Question about 2005 kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan

1 Answer

I have a dead battery and want to jump start my bike. I want to make sure i connect my + cable to the right spot on the starter relay but the Owner's manual has a terrible picture. I cannot find a decent picture to look at. Is it the small terminal without the wires?

    The Owner's Manual says to connect the cable to the + terminal on the Starter Relay so that is why I asked the question the way I did. I do not want to take the seat etc apart in order to access the battery.

Battery keep going dead


If the battery is dead after starting then you have a short in the starting system. If it only starts when you jump it, and I'm assuming your using a car to do this, then it sounds like the starter is using an unusual amount of current to start and is defective. A shorted starter will drain a battery instantly, but make sure the positive cable is not shorted to the frame anywhere first.

Bike wont start, something with the Battery circuit or battery, we can push start the bike so the bike does run, I charged the battery and had the battery tested and it tests out fine, when I put in bike...


From your description, it sounds like a bad starter motor. That is provided all of the cables going from battery to relay, and relay to starter are not corroded or have poor connections. The relay is a weak point, so it may be damaged as well if the starter has been pulling too many amps.

Electric start with WR250


Hi, Shane and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. 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 if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a 2003 DynaGlyde, Carbureted, security and a battery that holds charge. The bike sat for a year I went to pick it up got it home in the back of my truck threw my battery charger on it to 15 amps...


Man, that's the best description I've ever seen of a problem with a bike on this site. Regrettably, I don't have a clue as to what the problem is but I can tell you that I've read about the turn signal staying on in many instances. I'm an old school biker and mechanic and I don't have any experience with the computer controlled bikes or security systems. To me, it sounds like the security system has got the bike disabled for some reason. This seems to be the case mostly when the battery goes dead and then the owner recharges the battery or installs a new battery. The security disables the ignition system thinking someone is trying to steal the bike and it communicates with the owner or mechanic through the turn signal system. Have you read the owner's manual about the security system? The turn signal staying on constantly may be trying to tell you what the problem is. I really wish I could help more but that's all I've got.

Good Luck
Steve

It started out just clicking when u pushed the starter button an now it dont do nothing ive got a new battery in it can you tell me whats wrong its a 660 grizzly 2004


get some wire that's equal in size or larger gauge than the battery cable (a jump start cable works great) and connect from one side of the solenoid to the other momentarily. The starter should engage. If it doesn't, you have either a dead battery, bad battery cable, or the starter relay is bad. You can also try a jumper from from the battery positive terminal to the starter side of the solenoid. If it engages then the the battery cable from the battery to the solenoid is bad. To test the relay, put 12 volts dc on the trigger side and the relay contacts should close. You'll hear them close with a click.

I have a 96 Dodge Intrepid and it wil not start. it clicks when you try to start it. All of the lights in the car are on. the battery has been charged. it cut off on me a few days ago and i thought i...


solenoid clicking, troubleshooting steps: Run 3 tests to troubleshoot.

1. try to jump start at battery terminals
2. unhook the jumpers and try to jump the solenoid following procedures at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over (see picture there--make sure car is in park or neutral)
3. Only if #1 and #2 fail to crank the engine, smack the starter motor (not the solenoid) with a hammer and then try to start.

Based on results of above tests, here are solution options:

If smacking the starter is the only test that worked, you have a dead spot on the starter commutator--replace the starter.

If it will jump start but will not crank by jumping the solenoid, check to make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight.

If it will not jump start and will not crank even by jumping the solenoid, the problem is either the cable to the starter or the starter/solenoid itself.
check the big red wire that goes from the battery to the starter and make sure it is strong and tight at both ends. If that is good, replace the starter/solenoid.

If it will not jump start but will crank when the solenoid is jumped, the problem is with the start circuit not getting sufficient current to the solenoid. This usually only happens when there is a separate starter relay (in the engine compartment relay box) that is worn out. Replace the starter relay.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Selenoid relay starter just clicks when ignition switch pushed in does not turn over


check your battery it could be low it's under the rider seat. you want a nice 12 volt, if you can run the battery to your bike shop or parts store ask them to load test what this is, is the process of putting demand on a system or device and measuring its response. if it does not pass the battery will can still power the light but not start the bike. Now if it is dead then you need to fix the problem that caused the dead battery, after you get the battery charged or replaced start you bike and check your chargeing system. you should read 14.50 +/- .50 when you rev the bike. also while you are in there make sure the ground is good.
Good luck
