Question about 2010 Triumph Bonneville T100

2010 Triumph Bonneville T100 turns over but will not start

My T100 has been sitting for two weeks while I was out for surgery. I went out and started it once and let it run a minute and it did fine, a few days later I started it but it struggled to start and when it did it blew a little smoke, never has before. A few days later I tried to start it again and the battery was dead, after recharging the battery I tried again and it would not start. Turns over but will not start.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
14. Check 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.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

check for short circuits. it can be stripped wire that makes contact with the bike chassis. This can drain the battery. Also, Charging circuit may be dead (alternator and regulator).

You should check the plug for the onboard computer. I had problems with a 1997 daytona a few years back with a similar sounding problem to yours. cheers

Hard to start. when accelerating it seems very


If the engine is not spitting or sputtering, the plugs are fine. If they were fouled, the engine would not run well at all. Probably just the fuel is stale. Today's fuels don't hold up in the tank like they use to do. Once you get that fuel run out and put some fresh fuel in the bike it should run like it always did before the surgery.

1996 Toyota T100 air bag lite will not turn off. Normal it comes on during start up, then turns offf. Now it comes on and stays on for weeks, then turns off for a day or two, then back on.


You need to take the vehicle to a dealer, when the light is ON, and get it scanned. The results of the scan willl lead you in the direction of the repair that is needed. In your case, with the info that you have provided, I would think, with the intermittantness of the issue, is you may have a spiral cable (or, a 'clockspring') in the steering column going bad.

2002 LandRover Freelander HSE- Turns but doesn't start/fire up


It does sound like electrical problems. When it does this you need to know is it not getting fire, fuel or both. The alarm could be a problem, engine control, or a simple ground strap loose. Make sure you battery terminals are clean and connections are tight. The last time i saw this happen it turned out to be a wiring issue because someone had tapped into the factory alarm harness and the wiring was done very poorly which was causing the problem.

Sometimes dead ignition


Connections are the most common either on the battery or the starter solonoid. Next would be a starter, but you would usually get a click down on the flywheel where the starter engaged but could not turn over. Finally an ignition switch, unlikely but contacts there do sometimes go bad there as well.
