Is run switch on. Is there current to other parts of the bike?? Is the battery dead??? Have you checked your fuses?? Do you hear any noise from the starter relay?? Are your battery and ground connections, clean, tight and free from corrosion?

SOURCE: when you push the start button nothing happens it

Now, you need to check to see if power is going from the starter relay to the solenoid of the starter. Look on the end of the starter just above the 5-sided plate on the end of the solenoid and you'll see a single wire plugged onto the starter. Unplug this wire and connect either a volt meter or test light to the wire. Turn the ignition switch on and press the start button. You should have battery voltage at this wire when you press the button. If not, the relay needs to be replaced. If you do have voltage to this point and the starter does nothing, something is wrong with the starter.

Good Luck
Steve

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

New battery new starter nothing happens when i turn the key


You definitely have a starting system problem. You have two circuits - Battery to starter circuit & the Starter Control Circuit (Ignition switch, Transaxel Range Switch (if Automatic Trans), Starter Relay, Starter Clutch Pedal Position Switch (if manual Trans) Fuse & Starter Solenoid). Based on your description, the problem is in the Control Circuit.

Here's an illustration:

I have a 93 pathfinder SE 4X4 automatic transmission that had full power, new starter and battery. Sometimes it will start and sometimes not. By passed starter relay by adding push button start and it started 6-8 times then nothing. I finally figured out that it was the neutral safety or inhibitor switch on the 4 wheel drive shifter. Just an idea..good luck

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

replace your battery although you have 12 volts your battery is producing very little amps not even enough to energize your start relay let alone your starter motor

On a 1996 vw golf the only way i can start it is to hook a wire from the hot to a jumper on the starter selinod and it makes it engage but if i hook the jumper wire up normally nothing happens when i turn...


Hello, I take it you twist the key to start and nothing? I repaired my Postmans Vw with the same problem. Firstly it is common and the dealer way of solving is to replace the whole ignition barrel. However I went to Maplins bought a 10 amp push to make flush fitting switch and grafted it into the wire from the ignition switch that goes to the one You use to hot wire the starter you can fuse it too to be safe. Now he has a Vw that looks like the New Bmw Mini for push button starting.
There You Go! Problem solved.
