Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: Push statrer button and nothing happens

Sounds like too much oil! Yeah it sounds like a switch. You can probably get that thing apart and see what's happening. Have you ridden in the rain lately or trailered it through heave rain? I trailered my Ducati through some heavy rain in North Carolina and washed all the grease out of the throttle, wouldn't even turn. I have a feeling, you have corroded the connection some how, check it out.

SOURCE: starter stays engaged

It sounds like you may have a bad "Starter Clutch." This is not cheap to replace, so I hope I'm wrong. B)

I picked up a 1995 sl 750 Polaris jet ski charged up a new battery but when I push the start button nothing happens


Try using a jumper from the battery directly to the starter, bypassing the switch. You may have a bad starter switch.

97 Suzuki LS 650 Savage won't turn over. Battery is charged to 12 volts, and I replaced the fuses, but still nothing. When I push the starter button nothing happens. No clicks, no lights dimming.


if you can arc and get it to work
what are the battery terminals like... clean and tight
check continuity for the earth chassis to battery neg - terminal wire
also the wire voltage to the starter from pos battery
if that checks out
bench test starter
solenoid not kicking out properly or problem with lazy starter motor

Ignition problem,turn key but nothing happens?


First thing to do is look at the dash lights when you put the switch in START position. If they blink or dim, you may have a faulty battery or poor connectivity.
Next try jumping the starter. You'll find a starter jumper at almost any auto parts. If you get no result then the problem is with the starter, If the starter turns then the problem is in the starting circuit from the switch to the starter relay.

Nothing happens when I push starter button. Oil light only is on and headlight seems bright.


Is the clutch pulled in? Is the kill switch put in the run position? Both of these things will do that - of course you might just have a bad starter button too...

Headlights go dim when try to start,but nothing happen the switch lights come on but dont start. 1800 vtx motorcycle 2003


The headlight is supposed to turn off when you push the starter button. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. If there is no power going to the solenoid you can try disassembling and cleaning the button. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , unless the manufacturer sells replacement parts so you can repair the starter. most manufacturers only sell replacement starter brushes.

When i push the ignition switch, nothing happens,


Check to see if there is power going to the starter solenoid when you push the start button.You are going to need a small meter or a light probe.If there is power to the solenoid check to see if there is power going out to your starter.Check the smaller wires as well for feed from your start button.The fact that nothing happens gives me the "feeling" its the solenoid. Good luck
