Hi Anonymous, battery voltage must be 12.5 volts or higher after you remove trickle charger. Battery terminals and cable connections must be clean and tight. Do a load test on battery. Good luck

Sportster died while shifting to 2nd now won't start just one click


"only one click when I try to start it"

Sounds like a bad starter relay, about a $10-$25 part.

2006 Street Bob wont start even with a charger on. Only clicks.


Hi Tony, first when checking anything in the starter circuit you must make sure the battery connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends and has a 12.5 volt or better charge. It must not fall below 9 volts during the cranking procedure with a volt meter hooked up. If it does fall below 9 volts do a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary. Second replace the starter relay cheap $6 and make sure it's well grounded and getting 11.5 volts or better to activate. Third remove the back cover of the solenoid and de-arc/refurbish the contact plate and shoes making sure they are tight. If it still chatters replace the solenoid. Good luck

probably your battery cant conform minimum requirements of digital circuits used to drive starter motor in high tech cars. that is why it works only with external charger. measure your abttery. it should be showing at least 12.4 volts. normally battery should show 12.5. to 12.65 volts. probably your battery has sulfation. end of its life.

Put a new battery in wont start now got a clicking coming from the starter relay help


Chances are the new battery could us a few hours on a 1amp trickle charger. New batteries with fresh acid instantly produce electricity but often need to be charged to reach full power.

I believe i have a weak battery on my car when i tried starting the car after it had sat a month it was dead. I boosted it and it started and run fine. I bought a trickle charger and put it on the battery....


The charger shouldn't have hurt the battery but corrosion is caused by fumes from the battery being charged or used. If you know the cable ends are clear, the battery probably has a dead cell and will need replaced. Most parts stores will do a load test on the battery for free.

2008 f150 4x4 2008 crew cab.truck makes clicking sound when trying to start.wont roll over.don,t know if its battery or starter problem


I would try the battery first. I have a 2004 F150 that really discharges the battery fast if I don't drive it for a week or two. I ended up replacing the battery and then putting a trickle charger / battery maintainer on it.

Good luck.

C-50 wont start. Had bad battery on a trickle charger. Took to friends house. Went to leave n battery was dead. Took it home n charged it. Brought it back n won't start. Battery has charge but the bike...


Chances are the battery will no longer hold a charge. An internal short could be why. Bike batteries seldom last more than two years. How old is the battery? Jump the battery from your car battery. If the starter works, the battery is bad, not the starter. You DO have water covering the top of the plates in each battery cell don't you? Please rate my answer, thanks.
