Nothing happens when ignition is on

When I turn on ignition nothing comes on. I had battery tested and also checked all fuses. No lights, instrumentation, nothing happens. It's as thought I have no battery in the bike.

SOURCE: Ignition switch doesn't start bike

The ECU will not cause this symptom. They are giving you a line.
The link between the starter switch and the battery and the starter motor is pure electro-mechanical. The ECU covers how the engine works, electrically, things like timing, etc. not the starter motor.
The fact the bike starts to crank then stops says that there is at least a rudimentary path between the battery and the starter.
Just by the starter there will be a solenoid that controls the starter. It has a couple of screwed-down cables - those are the main power cables that feed the starter. You can bypass the solenoid by directly connecting those two cables - this will fore the starter to rotate, regardless of what any ECU says. I would perform that as a check but be careful - there is a lot of power going through it. Be careful not to touch the two terminals via the threaded portion of the screws that hold down the cables - only touch the bolts or you may weld a notch in the threads - it will make it difficult to remove if it is faulty.
I would normally use a single jump lead - connect one end to the nut holding down one lead, then momentarily touch the other nut - if the battery is good it WILL turn over. This is making the most basic of connections in the ignition system - connecting a battery to a motor - it can't fail if all is good and will certainly give you an indication of whether or not the battery is up to the task.
I would seriously reconsider your choices in mechanics, though. This is a basic test they should have performed.

could be a bad connection to the battery or the starter solinoid cant think how to spell it but its where the positive battery wire hooks up

Testimonial: "Thanks for the information, sounds like it could be a loose connection. Where do I find the starter solenoid ? "

The contacts in your starter solenoid are burnt , dirty, or just not making a good enough connection to activate the starter. If you bypass the solenoid and the bike starts normally, then you just need to replace the starter solenoid.

1990 ford f150; The ignition switch turns both ways freely but nothing happens (no lights or anything) What do I do or how can you help me to fix this?

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Positive and ground connections. Use a test light at your fuse box. Fuses 1 4 8 12 16 show to be hot all the time. check for voltage using the test light. If nothing, have to track voltage from positive battery post. Ground is very important as well.
You could have problem with ignition switch? The ignition switch is spring loaded from crank position?

The clicking noise from fuse box is probably a relay! Nothing happening could mean anything! Without turning the ignition can you turn on headlights, does the inside light come on when you open the door, horn work?

Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

Nothing happens when I turn the ignition switch.

If you didn't do a load test on the battery, that is probably the problem - it may work properly under light load, but it is not uncommon for it to fail under heavy load, which can also cause a problem trying to jump start the car. If that is what's happening, replace the battery.

Hi Mullerr, try doing a voltage drop test starting with the outboard side of your main 30 amp fuse if it is more than 1/2 volt lower than your battery voltage, replace the fuse and for more information about your question please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Hi just because the battery is new does not mean anything turn on your head light to see if they come on, if not most likely the battery, if you have a volt meter I would check the battery. Now if the light do come on then I would check the fuse for the ignition system, pull the fuse complete out to check if it is blown. These two check I would start with. Please let me know how you make out.
