Put 12 volts to the small terminal on the solenoid. if it clicks and the starter activates look upstream for a safety switch...clutch or side stand.

replace your battery although you have 12 volts your battery is producing very little amps not even enough to energize your start relay let alone your starter motor

SOURCE: My 2005 Suzuki Boulevard Will not start most of

Same problem here ... 2008 C90T ... dealer no help ... in 3rd or 4th, ignition off, force it to roll backwards until you hear the piston shift ... should start then. Told it's the rear piston stopping at or near top dead center, but also told adjust the decompression will "solve" the issue; anyway, a rolling forward-start in 4th will work, too, otherwise try rolling the bike backwards until you hear, and you will know when the piston moves and then it will start.

When I press the starter button on my 1993 cbr600f2 nothing happens, I just finished installing new rear turn signals now bike won't turn on

will not turn on is not the same as will not start. which did you mean?? putzing with anything electrical could have led to a blown fuze...... check them all especially if you have absolutely NOTHING happening when you turn on the key, if you have lights and only no starter, there is a fuse for that also... but spray some contact cleaner into the starter button and work it... check the ground on the starter as well as the MAIN fuse... the starter solenoid should be making a noise when you hit the button... if it isn't, bridge the terminals on the solenoid with a screwdriver and see if the starter kicks in... IF SO, replace the solenoid...

My 05 Honda rincon won't start at the button, I replaced the selenoid starter and new battery press the start button and nothing happens.

1. Make sure you have all the switches in the right place (kill switch..etc..)
1. With the key off - Take a screwdriver and jump the two big threaded connectors on the solenoid - the engine should turn over... if it doesn't - either the solenoid is bad -or you have no connections to the battery and/or starter. If it turns over, now turn the key on and see if it starts.. it should.
If this works.. the problem is probably the starter button.

If not...double check ALL the connections to the battery/solenoid/starter... you have probably left a wire off somewhere..( we have all done it!!)..make sure the right wires are in the right place...

Scooter not starting

If it starts by shorting then there is nothing wrong with the system AFTER the solenoid. If by pressing the starter button it just clicks then the solenoid relay may be at fault. If nothing at all when pressing then it could be a broken wire to the solenoid or a faulty button. This is assuming a good battery and all fuses are okay.

TVS Star city Self not working?

You will have to clean the start button, it may be fullof carbon thus no contact when you operate it.
To make sure of that's the problem. look for the starter solenoid switch in yur bike and jump it with a little thicker wire and it should turn the starter, if not than it's the starter solenoid switch whic needs replacing.
Hop ethis helps!

Well the good news is the click indicates the switch is working, when you press the switch the 2poles on the solenoide are joined together alowing the current to the starter,bridge the wires at the solenoide this should put power directly to the starter you wont need to press the start switch, if the engine does not turn over check the connections to both the battery and starter motor,

Check the start solenoid, start side. shoud be no voltage unless you press the start switch. With start switch pressed, you should jump from no volts to 12 volts. Check with 12 volt light or volt/ohm meter to ground.

You may also have safety interlocks ... engine in neutral? kick stand up? KILL switch is in the RUN position?

95 jeep cherokee country 6 cyl auto. wont crank all the time

Bad solenoid i would guess. Not making a connection there. Any basic wiring and ignition switch problems should be alleviated by jumping the starter with a screwdriver. I would check the solenoid and starter brushes

If you've applied 12VDC to the solenoid and it does nothing, not even click, then the solenoid is toast!
