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.

I have replaced the battery and ignition unit on my 1985 suzuki 700 es, the bike really sounds like it wants to run but wont start. Starter turns but engine won't kick over. Any Ideas?


Is it getting gas properly? Has it been sitting around for a while? The carburators on motorcycles need to cleaned after sitting around. The jet could be full of varnish. Are you getting spark for sure? Pull out a spark plug and put it in the wire, crank it over and see if the spark plug sparks. When you pulled the plug was it wet at all with gas? Then it probably isn't getting gas right. Just some of the things you could try.

1985 model. I replaced battery, was running, now wont start, turn switch hit starter button , get nothing , there is a click from the relay that the previous owner just installed last summer. Lights and...


Check that your Engine kill switch is in the Run position.

Bike must be in neutral (with neutral light showing) to crank starter, if you try starting in gear the clutch switch must be activated (lever in) and the sidestand must be up.

Engine won't turn over. Has been sitting for


if the starter wont turn the engine over try putting the bike on its center stand plonking it in top gear and turning the rear wheel to see if the engine is sezed up,, it may just be very tight,,,or the starter may have set solid from lack of use, also the battery is by now dead,,,18 months stood doing nothing and not chareds very often wont do it any good at all, try using a car battery to jump start the bike

1985 ford 250 diesel - Starter verese Battery


Both batteries need to be fully charged. Some have solinoids on both the starter and the fender well. Don't use ether in that engine. It can cause engine damage.

Engine wont turn over intermittent problem


Hi, I believe the answer is YES! I have an 1985 Cressida wagon. I bought is used and frankly, did not ev en know it HAD an alarm until it went off a month later. But my engine doesnt engage intermittently. It makes NO sounds, not even a click or anything. I found out this happens regularly and the alarm is usually to blame, as if triggered, it disengages the engine. if you hear noise of any kind, have this checked.

I did find it I jump it , it works great! ...however, i can tell when I lock the door, subtle differences in the feel of the key turning that has been 100% indicator of the alarm disengaging the battery. When I get in, sure enough, the car will not turn over.

Someone told me to just take one of the battery terminals off and put back on and the engine will re-engage. Hah! sure. like I know how to do that.

I bought a portable battery charger 19.95 and self jump it. It works every time,. I am not sure why, but it does.

I am now trying to locate a wiring and maintenance manual so I can just have the Alarm removed. The battery is 1000% great.

Just my opinions.

In your field


Hi nutsnigga,

As you've got spark the engine must be turning over, otherwise you wouldn't know.... You say that the starter just clicks and the battery is new....If the engine is turning, what do you mean....

If you have spark and fuel and the engine is turning, you've got another problem.....but one that's related.....The most likely, especially if you carried on until the engine became so hot, it stopped you!....the cylinder head gasket has blown....Check the oil and see if it's turned a milky grey colour.....If it has....cylinder head and or gasket....but that's not the end....You may have seized rings or seals....Is it a rotary engine?... With engines these days, the operating temp is much higher, part of falling in with emission controls.....the down side..... if it over heats, much more damage.....Check the compression and see if there's leakage.

Best of luck Johngee10
