You have short ciruit. look for any bare wiring around the brake lever that may be rubbing against it

SOURCE: kawasaki electrical fault,immobiliser not working

Wow...where to begin, I am not a professional mechanic...but I've been buying and rebuilding bikes for over a year now and I've encountered some of these issues.
Q: do you have the original key and ignition still in tact?

the fuel pump and choke you should hear activate when you turn on the ignition and/or press the start button...the fuel pump should be located in the gas tank, there should aslo be a single connector w/2 wires that attaches to the fuel pump...I'd suggest checking that FIRST, in a Kawasaki I dont believe that the F1 light blinks when the ignition is switched to off so do not let that be decieving to you...Another easy fix and hugely overlooked and misunderstood issue is the battery...by this It means that a bike will not have enough "stable power" to "fire" or "spark" a coil, so other than a new battery or a strong jump start you will be unable to determine whether or not there is an actual CDI or ignition issue to contend with...after checking and verifying those issues, please feel free to find me and I'd be happy to share the many small things I've had to contend with

SOURCE: Rear brake light will not come on when rear brake is applied

If your brake lights are not coming when pressing the foot brake this means that there is something wrong with the switch..Have a closer look near the brake lever and you will see a spring attached to it which in turn is connected to the brake switch..Try to pull it down and if you see your brake lights working then you only need to adjust the spring setting..Else try to make a manual close connection and if it goes on then replace the switch..

sounds to me you knott out the recketfier ... when you blow the fuse at also sent to much power to it. but also sounds like you have a bad ground wire.

SOURCE: my 2005 Yamaha R6 is overheating at idle...like

if your cooling fan is not switching on then i would check fuses then if all fuses are good check for 12V at you cooling fan when temp gets between half and 3/4 way to hot . if you have no voltage it could be a temp sensor or relay . if you have voltage there your fan motor has gone bad and needs to be replaced . another thing to check is the hoses running to the radiator . let the bike idle and warm up and check the temp of the radiator hoses . if one is much cooler than it should be then you might have a bad thermostat on your bike and its not opening enough to let coolant flow at idle. water pump could be going bad as well. if the bike warms up and fan does not kick on untill you rev it up a bit i would check the thermostat and waterpump

Motor shuts off when started up,shuts off when driving.


hot engine or cold, or both? 180F+ is hot.
Shuts off, idling or on the fly, say at 30mph right foot down it dies?
just clue here...
engine stalls. is complex. but in the macro its below, using tools finds the reason,, but you never said did it restart easy./??????
1: lost of engine compression hot engine, (or overheated)
2: lost 12vdc electric power at stall (caused it) dash goes dead. ?
3: lost spark, test spark at the failure point. if dead trouble shoot speak.
4 bad fueling, too lean (say the fuel pump dies) or too rich.
too rich causes wet spark plug tips. (lots of causes )
5: stalls due to idle RPM too low, below 800 is too low.
too low idle rpm is caused by many things, but top 2 are.
A: EGR stuck wide open, clean it, as the books shows at 60k miles
B: ISC stuck closed. (same deal clean it)

now repost and say when it stalled,
at a read light or flying up a hill wot, wot= wide open throttle.
and when it dies, is the restart easy or hard.

I was driving down the road and lost power..no gas..no brakes...no steering.


did it restart?
the engine stalled, as such you
get
no engine power
no P/S reverts to manual steering, you did not loose steering.
same with P/B power brakes, you didnt lose it you lost power
assist, brakes will stop just as vast but takes a husky foot.
in school (driving) we were though to drive, stalled engine.
i guess most school went dumb. (seen it)
now stalls
engine stall for a vast number or reasons.

do that tuneup not called the 60k mile service point list. did you.?
cars ignored all fail, no car runs 300k miles service free,
skip them and get stranded, (i promise)

1: lost electric power to the EFI system.
2: engine overheated or lost compression for any reasons (complex)
3: lost spark
4: lost fuel
5: too much fuel, flooding, and stalling.
6: egr sticks open.
7: ISC sticks closed.
8:if not restart, say so and list expands way more...

cars are complex, it's not like a burned out desk lamp.
vast complexity and after 2007 , insane complexity.
avoid them 2007 and newer, sans NASA engineer.

2001 grand vitara runs good but stalls every time I hit the brake, I had a corroded positive terminal I replaced it and now I have this problem


stalls, there are 50 ways to stall a motor,
1: engine lost compression. (can do that hot, or over heated)
2: lost spark.
3: bad fueling. (too much or too little)
4: isc sticks (can your right foot avoid the stall easy, bingo ISC.
5: lost electric power to EFI system. lost 12v, (even a loose fuse)

sounds to me #5 based just on the brake deal.

Kymco miler 125cc was starting on electric & just stopped?


Does it have a kick starter so you can verify mechnical ability of engine to run? If so but will not electrically start as your question indicates then you have lost battery power to the starting system. Possible causes coul be many, blown fuse, loose battery cables or bad battery. poor harness connector connections. I have seen many problems with Chineese units due to connectors seperating due to the lack of a locking mechanism on the connectors. Could be a side stand switch or brake switch issue if the unit has these circuits. Do you normally have to apply the brake for the starter to work? Wire across the brake switch to diagnose the switch. Hope this helps!

Brake lights are staying on even with the ignition is off


Hi, you probably have a bad brake light switch located, I believe, on the arm of brake petal, try disconnecting it to see if they go off, not too difficult to replace once you have new switch.

I have a 2003 buick lasabre, brake lights stay on include back window light


Most likely the brake light switch is sticking on. This switch is mounted on the brake pedal arm about six inches above the foot pedal, between the arm and the push rod that goes into the master cylinder.
Get a new switch at the auto parts store, then pull the spring clip and slide the old switch off. disconnect the wires, replace the switch and put the spring clip back into place.
If you don't want to replace it yourself, it should be an inexpensive repair (I'd guess under $100). Call around for prices.

Wont shift gears.


Look under the dash at the switch by your brake pedal. This switch must work for the gearshift to come out of Park. It is also the reason your brake lights do not work.

There is an electric lockout on the gearshift and the power comes from the brake light switch. This is how the van knows you have your foot on the brake.
The switch may be broke or simply loose and not making contact.

1996 Olds ciera, V6, Engine dies when put in drive


Try disconnecting the electrical connector at the transmission and see if it stall when you put it in gear. You will get a service engine light, but not to worry, it will go back out once you reconnect.
By disconnecting the wire connector we can tell if it is transmission related.
Good luck, let me know.
