Sounds like you have a electric short. Start by checking main wires to the battery to see if they are loose or dirty or broken

I was changing blinker and crossed a wire it shorted out lost all power to motorcycle and all fuses in fuse box are good what could be problem and where is it located


Hi, Leslie either your battery is dead, your main fuse is blown or you have a battery connection issue or you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short. Good luck and have a nice day.

1989 jeep cherokee limited lost all electrical power


Battery voltage is not a good indicator of the state of a battery.
Your starter can draw as much as 160 amps when trying to turn your engine. Turn on the ignition again and turn on the head lights as well. Are the bright or dim?? If they are dim, your battery is flat.
You may be able to charge it up, but that depends on how old it is as they have a service life which may have expired.

My honda shadow areo will go dead, motor dies, no lights no nothing and key is on this has happened three separt times with a new battery, no blown fuse and cables are all connected with a good grnd. one...


Could be one of two things. Bad ignition switch or you have an intermittent short somewhere on the main harness.

I would check that all your electrical connections are tight, clean, and are well grounded to the frame. Maybe even check the ignition switch for any loose wiring. Inspect and clean all electrical connections (especially on the ignition switch) with electrical cleaner

Electrical Help Please


nada. No gauges no lights absolutely nothing. All that happens is when I turn the ignition switch off the tach bounces backward quickly about 6 or 8 times. I put the bike on the battery tender and within 20 minutes it was showing in good shape. Still nothing. Checked battery leads. No problem. I checked all the fuses around the battery and up next to the dash. Nothing there. I R & R'd all of the relays next to the dash and the 3 behind the tool kit with the same relays off of my Mille. Still nothing. I changed the odd relay next to the battery that says UP on it. Don't know what it is but it rattles. Maybe a tip over sensor? Nothing. I tried jumping the bike off with a portable jump start battery. Nothing. I switched the battery out. Nothing. I pulled the front fairing and checked all connections. Found everything to be just fine. Put a battery charger on the fully charged battery and suddenly got ignition lights and headlights. Turned the key back off and once again nothing. A few more times it would come back and show lights and gauges but when I went to start everything went dead again. I'm thinking maybe the ignition switch? It doesn't seem worn out at all. I jiggled the key didn't seem to make a difference. The bike only has about 10k miles on it. Any ideas? ,Some 'friend'... did this ever happen to him? Good diag work so far, and I don't have anything specific to look at. Hopefully one of the sm-m-m-marter members can assist. ,,,

Motorcycle wont start


Check the battery connections, especially if you hear a click just before it goes dead. I know that on my bike, when this happens, the screws that hold the battery cables in place have backed out and not getting a good contact. You would think that with a bad contact that it would stay dead when you turn the key off then back on, but oddly, everything comes back on normally until I hit the starter button. Check the cables.
