If u havn't checked the battery with an ohm meter, do so. If the meter reads 12.50 or higher start looking at your starter. The solinoid would click and a bad starter would nothing. You could try tapping on the starter with a small hammer while pressing the start button. If it starts or at least turns over, u need a starter.

Try removing the power commander to see if that is your problem.

SOURCE: 883 wont start

The battery might just be done or warn out, if you get lights when you turn the key on, and can honk the horn and everything, then it should click, if you are able to honk the horn and lights etc. and they aren't real weak, when you hit the starter it should tick, if your lights are bright and horn is loud and brake light responds quickly, then I'd ask a Harley dealer about it.

SOURCE: Strong lights and signals..wont do a thing when you hit "RUN".

Ok, this is what I needed to know. There is one other thing that will cause this, the starter relay. On the earlier bikes the relay used to be on the backside of the oil tank. I'm not sure on the newer models. It is a simple plastic relay that looks like a cube about 1 inch in all dimensions. It has a plug on it and is held by one screw somewhere. I'd take the seat off and look under there or where the fuses are. Maybe under that triangle plate on the left side of the bike.

I wish I could be of more help but I don't get to work on the newer models. I'm an independant mechanic and I usually only get to work on the stuff that the Harley shop won't work on. If you own a bike made before 1984, Harley dealers will not work on them. That's what I do. I work on Panheads, Shovelheads, Ironhead Sportys, and even Hummers and the Italian Harleys. The guys that buy the new ones still take them to the dealers. I don't work on Twin Cams powered Big Twins either. But, they are basically the same and I try to do what I can to help people. Most of the time it works out but electrical problems are tough because that's one thing that has changed with the use of security systems now. I still use the old style security system. A big chain and a 357 magnum. (BG) Good Luck and let me know if still have problems. I'll try again.

I can't figure out whether your problem is with the bike or the security system. I have no experience with security systems and don't have a clue. I'd take the battery out of the bike and take it somewhere to have it "load tested". Just because a battery shows 12 volts with a meter doesn't mean it's any good. Put a load on it (like the starter does) and you may find that it's a piece of junk. If it won't start then, I'd suspect the security system has it locked out. Sorry I can't help with that but I'm an old school biker and I don't mess with security systems.

Good Luck

Yamaha wont turn over

Hi. Yes more than likely it is the battery. Even when boosting it the battery can drain all the power from the boost battery. You could try topping up the acid then charge it.

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing

IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

Hi, I would still suspect the battery. Lights and ignition do not really draw much current neither does the bike when running.. Your battery goes almost flat when the starter is engaged lots of amps are required. Try this check: remove the battery (undo negative lead first please) then connect a high wattage bulb across the terminals see how long it takes for the bulb to dim. If the bulb is still bright after an hour re charge the battery (please use a dedicated bike charger max output 1 amp). Re-fit the battery (connect positive lead first please). If bike still does not start check starter solenoid is activating it should click when you press the start button. Hope this helps.

2002 mitsubishi 6 cyl will start and run fine until you turn it off then it wont restart. now wont start at all. did this several times until it wont start at all. cam sensor??? or fule system problem?

The most neglected part in this system is the battery. Have your battery tested for retaining the charge, some of the cells can fail and your battery will not retain the charge, even after a long drive.

Try starting it with a booster battery, if your problem disappears, you just need a new one.

Hope this helps.

1994 C280 wont start

You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on.  Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.
