Your starter button has a short or bad (dirty) connection. try using a multi-meter an test the ohms. first the test the amount of voltage crossing the switch.

SOURCE: honda CB 250 1998-will not start, just clicking, battery is ok

Hi, Your problem lies with the starter solenoid, although you maybe using a fully charged battery to jump it, it appears to be sticking or possibly faulty due to trying to start with poor battery.
The starter solenoid is usually located on or near the Battery compartment, it is cylindrical and has two heavy wires attached to it 1 goes to the starter motor the other to the battery. If you are carefull you can by pass the solenoid by touching the heavy wire going to the starter motor with the jumper lead. Make sure the jump battery is connected and both the NEGATIVE leads are well secure. Put the NEGATIVE lead from jump cable direct to a engine mount bolt or engine itself Not the battery.
There you are FixYa'd

I had the same problem with my 636. It turned out to be just a cable problem. Try to see if all the electric cables work correctly and connected.

Good Luck,
Elad.

I had the same problem with my 07 cbr but i found out that it wasn't the starter relay, the battery was just dead and i tried to recharge it but it was still dead, so it needed replaced with a new one. once this was done the bike started fine and the buzzing had stopped, so you should give that a go!

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

TVS Star city Self not working?


You will have to clean the start button, it may be fullof carbon thus no contact when you operate it.
To make sure of that's the problem. look for the starter solenoid switch in yur bike and jump it with a little thicker wire and it should turn the starter, if not than it's the starter solenoid switch whic needs replacing.
Hop ethis helps!

My 2000 Nissan Maxima will not start-no clicking, just dead. The battery was tested and is good.


You probably need a new starter. Try locating the starter and hit on it 2 or 3 times, then try starting the vehicle again......If it starts then you need a new starter.

Well the good news is the click indicates the switch is working, when you press the switch the 2poles on the solenoide are joined together alowing the current to the starter,bridge the wires at the solenoide this should put power directly to the starter you wont need to press the start switch, if the engine does not turn over check the connections to both the battery and starter motor,

What if the car wont start but all the lights come on ?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If the car won't start but the lights are on then it's got to be a starter problem. But before doing so have the timing belt checked for if it's broken the car won't start and forcing it will give severe damage to the engine. If the timing belt is fine then go for the starter whick is common on all vehicles.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

Bike wont start press the start button and nothing happens


Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Unplug the two small wires going to the solenoid and use a voltage meter to see if you have continuity when you press the starter button. If you do not, clean the starter button or replace the switch assembly. If you jump the two cable terminals on the solenoid and the starter cranks, you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. Any other problem with the starter and you will need to buy a new assembly.

My 2004 330ci won't start, does not turn over. The battery is fine, all electrical in the car work fine, plus trying to jump car does not work & a green light is showing on the battery in the truck....


If the battery is fine, why jump it? Faulty thinking to state or think: all electrical in the car work fine. If it did the starter motor would be turning the engine over. The starter motor work on electrical...not all is fine.

check: 1) 60a starter fuse/relay. 2) voltage to starter when turning key to activate starter motor, this will rule out ignition switch or relay. 3) apply direct voltage to starter motor to detect bad starter motor.

I have a 83 v45 magna. it was starting fine now when I press the start button all I hear is a clicking noise coming from the starter relay. I charged the battery and still nothing. how can I make sure its...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Jump the 2 big terminals. If the starter motor spins, then it would be a faulty starter relay.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
