I couldn't find a free PDF service manual download. A manual should have a wiring diagram. Google "service manuals suzuki". You can also go to www.repairmanuals.com and probably purchase a manual there. If you are restoring the bike, having a manual is a must. It is the only sure way to know what you may be missing and where the wires connect.

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

How doi install a radio after the original has been stolen and wires ripped out


You will need to buy an install kit even if they did. The back of new Radio's don't have anything but a plug to connect to. So the install kit will be needed to hookup the four {or just two depending on it's already installed options} speakers, the power, and ground. Plus the Antenna cable. They will all be color coded.

For example:

Installed new battery on 98 deville and the horn stays on when battery is connected


It thinks it was stolen , security. Hook the battery up and then turn the car on. This should stop the horn and reset the security.

Ive changed my subaru impreza 2002 wrx engine but it will not start it turns over ok and its getting fuel it will fire once and thats it


You need to remap the ECU to have the new engine codes, otherwise the computer will not let the engine run as the immobiliser/security system thinks that the car is getting stolen.Same thing with the key codes for the ignition.

Turn ignition key and there is no lights and it will not start. the car had been stolen and the ignition tampered with and damaged. the car worked yesterday and today it is dead., please revive asap!


The fact that the ignition was possibly damaged when the car was stolen may or may not have something to do with your problem., but If you want to test the circuit, you can run a fairly heavy INSULATED wire between your pos. battery post and the SMALL terminal on the solenoid (just touch the end to the solenoid). If the starter turns, you may have a ignition switch, neutral start switch, or some other wiring problem. If the starter does not turn (or if the solenoid doesn't even click) I would think that you need to check the battery charge.
Hope this is helpful.

Car was stolen ignition was ripped out of 2002 grandam, now car won't start with ignition and security light keeps flashing


groan.....gunna need a bit more info. but i'll try. What portion of the ignition was ripped out? The tumbler + switch? If so, you might need to get the car's system resent to recognize that it has a new ignition put in. Sime vehicles have a theft prevention system in place to prevent the vehicle from running if its been hot wired. Your best bet would be to replace the damaged ignition components (You did not mention if you did or not). If it still doesn't work after you have replced all of the ignition components. You can try to reset the vehicle (doesn't work on all) disconnect negative battery terminal and go back into vehicle and press down the brake pedal for about 30 seconds then reconnect battery and try it....good luck, hope this helps

HP notebook will not restart after closing cover overnight


Think it went into hibernation. Unplug from a/c adaptor, and remove the battery. Let it sit for 2 or 3 minutes, then plug in a/c adaptor and turn the unit on. It should reboot like new.

My car has been broke into and they messed up my ignition


put you key near the ignition switch the key has a passive antitheft chip in it and the car senses it isnt there so it wont stay running the pcm detects it is being stolen so it shuts down. if the key is near the pick up it should read the key as being there
