Check the electrical system from the battery ground (at the engine) to the battery.
chech the wires from the battery thru the solenoid to the starter. See if the starter will operate when it is "shorted" (touch a (large) wire from the battery + terminal to the starter post) be careful not to touch anything else. If it works this way you need a solenoid. If not, have the starter checked out.
There usually is some reason for a blown fuse.

When I connected battery, I only have headlights-no power to anything else.

ran last week , last year, last decade??????
battery voltage at 12.6v rested
y/n, if no charge it. you do know 1/2 dead battery runs HL ok but never a starter. so is not a valid test unless HD look DIM.
so learn to use a $10 voltmeter and all this is easy. stuff.
ok, battery is charged
did you try jumper cable jump starting it, if not why not?
anything else.
so that to me means the cab is dead.
the dash lamps all out.
key on.
so you blew fuses. fact.
front and rear boxes. check all fuses.

bingo !

when you replace any alternator/starter the battery minus lug must be pulled first.
if not you get blown fuses.
or worse a bath in Sulfuric acid or set blind for life.
did you mess that up>?

1997 Honda CBR 919 FIREBLADE will not turn over

The starter solenoid has an inline fuse. Check that first. Then make sure that you did not blow the main fuse (I'd use a multimeter to check all fuses for status or pull all fuses and visually check them that they aren't blown. Some battery cables have a fusible link preventing overcurrent of the battery and a battery/cable fire. If you don't have any power at all, I'd check the main fuse, the cables, and the wiring to the fuse panel from the battery. Typically, the main cable to the fuse box will either come off the battery as a "pigtail" or off the battery side of the starter solenoid.

Opel /holden vectra. blown 30amp main fuse replaced now all electrics work except no click or life when one tries to start.

The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

Nissan Altama Starter Relay electrical problems or a fuse?

Double check the battery positive connection wiring carefully as it commonly has connection problems when the battery is changed.

Electric start just whirrs and wouldn't start...

You have to check if the starter solenoid is bad. To do that you have to locate it, then put a screwdriver across the positive and negative terminals. There will be sparks, so don't panic.
If the starter spins, you have to replace the solenoid, if not then try jump starting the scooter with a bigger battery; yours might be bad.
If that still doesn't work, you may have a bad starter motor, loose wires, bad starter relay, blown fuse or even a bad brake switch.
- but first try to start again and again - sometimes it starts after several attempts....

My 1993 Honda Nighthawk 750 is suddenly electrically dead. The 30 amp fuse is O.K. All connestions are tight and the battery is good. Could it be the Magnetic Started switch connector?

Hi, Clyde before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

Replaced A 60am Fuse ,Ran For Two Days. Car Died and now i have no electrial juice to the whole car. suspect fuseable link.

You may be correct about the fusible link. Replacing a blown fuse without finding and repairing the reason it blew only leads to more problems and possible severe damage to wiring harnesses. Fuses are NEVER the CAUSE of an electrical problem. Blown fuses are ALWAYS the RESULT of an electrical problem. I would recommend taking the vehicle to someone who has access to the wiring diagrams and the proper equipment necessary to repair your electrical system. A blown 60 Amp fuse is nothing to play with. That fuse gave up it's life to stop your vehicle from burning to the ground. Please don't make it die in fires are never pretty!
