Hi and welcome to FixYa,

What seems to be the issue with the bike? If the starter motor fails to spin, try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the sidestand folded up. If it starts, then the safety interlocks has to be checked.

If the starter motor starts, then check for the absence/presence of sparks.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Have you checked the starter relay (if starter motor will not spin)?

    Incidentally, to locate the starter relay, follow the big battery cable from the + terminal.

2007 polaris ranger 500 efi 4x4 looses all power before key switch

Check the main fuse to the ignition switch.It will either come directly from the battery + terminal or pick up from the "hot" meaning "positive" side of the starter motor relay. If it comes from the relay you will locate it by following the main "positive" lead from the battery. From the relay you can then trace it to the main fuses. Hope this helps you out.

How to fix no power to some fuses on fuse block 92 volvo 960

Hi Ron
Thats a tough one.... Starting behind the fuse box....

Start from the other end. All Power has to come from the Battery.
So... a main feed wire (thicker) might be open.

There is another type of fuse used on cars. They are called fusible links. Check the wires leaving the Battery Positive terminal with a MultiMeter. Or use a 12v Test Light or make one up.
There is probably an open circuit in a link cable or Circuit Breaker.

Perhaps a Relay turned on by the Ignition Key is not making contact.
Tap the relay to get the internal contacts better connected. Or remove a suspect & test with 12v to the relay coil & monitor contacts with multimeter.
Sure is easier than pulling the fuse box out
Good Luck

How do you check fuse and switches to power hatch door?

First you will need a multimeter. Then you will need to know how to use it. If you do have one and know how to use it then make sure to first disconnect one of the battery terminals. Once you do that set the meter to the ohm's position RX1 or whatever the lowest ohm's setting there is on that meter and put each lead on either side of the fuse. If you get no reading then the fuse is bad. However it blew for a reason and that may be a short circuit in the system. If the fuse looks like it is burnt on the inside then there is probably a short circuit.

The next thing is to check the wire that brings power to the line side of the fuse. You will have to reconnect the battery terminal to see this. If there is power and the fuse is good then you need to check the door switch to the hatch door and it's wiring especially the terminals. If everything checks out OK then you probably have a defective power hatch door motor.

All of this is kind of complicated if you are not familiar with automobile wiring or how to use a multimeter.

Good luck,

Pass side fuse box has no power after arching the battery. Need help!

Good you have tried it! I pressume all fuses and relays are fine. Check if there are broken wires from the main source of the distritbution fuse boxes. Now, try to supply the said relay (from the left) using jumper wires from the distribution fuse box voltage source. Goodluck.

The starter solenoid has an inline fuse. Check that first. Then make sure that you did not blow the main fuse (I'd use a multimeter to check all fuses for status or pull all fuses and visually check them that they aren't blown. Some battery cables have a fusible link preventing overcurrent of the battery and a battery/cable fire. If you don't have any power at all, I'd check the main fuse, the cables, and the wiring to the fuse panel from the battery. Typically, the main cable to the fuse box will either come off the battery as a "pigtail" or off the battery side of the starter solenoid.

Battery is good, alternator is good. when car is off the battery is drained

  1. Follow these steps.
    Remove the negative side battery cable from the negative battery terminal.
  2. Connect the black wire to the com input on the multimeter and the red wire to the 10A or 20A input on the multimeter. the meter needs to be able to read at least a 2 or 3 amps for this test to work. Connecting the red wire to the mA input on the multimeter won't work and could damage the meter.
  3. Attach a multimeter(set the dial on the multimeter to measure Amps as per multimeters instructions) between the negative cable and the negative battery post. Wait a few seconds to several minutes for the car to go into sleep mode - i.e. when you make the contact with the ammeter, the cars computer systems "wake up". After a bit of time they will go back to "sleep".
  4. If the ammeter is reading over 25-50 milliamps, something is using too much battery power.
  5. Go to the fuse panel(s) and remove fuses, one at a time. Pull the main fuses (higher amp ratings)last. Perform the same steps for relays found in the fuse panel. Sometimes relay contacts can fail to release causing a drain. Be sure to observe the ammeter after pulling each fuse or relay.
  6. Watch for the ammeter to drop to acceptable drain. The fuse that reduces the drain is the draw. Consult the owners' manual or service manual to find what circuits are on that fuse.
  7. Check each device (circuit) on that fuse. Stop each lamp, heater, etc. to find the drain.
  8. Repeat steps 1&2 to test your repair. The ammeter will tell you exact numbers.
  9. You can also try unhooking the big wire from your alternator. The alternator can sometimes have a shorted diode that can cause amps to flow through the alternator's power cable and through the shorted diode and into the case and through the bolts and back to the negative battery terminal. This will drain a battery in a hurry.Make sure to read the ammeter before and after unplugging your Alternator

No power to starter or fuel pump, fuel pump is good, all fuses good main relay new

check the wire on the main fuse block thats attached to the positive side of the battery cable,, slide the sides off of that and check the connections to the bolts that hold down the main fuse for the starter, Mine was burned at one side so I was getting nothing to the starter, but the fuse was good , if you have a meter, check to see that power is passing through the fuses on each side,, backtrack the wire from the starter to the battery connections to see where the problem is

When pushing start button on spa pump does not kick in at all, tested power point and working ok ..What could be the problem and solution. Brian C

If you know that power is getting to the computer board then it is either a bad top-side control panel, or a bad relay on the computer board. If this is an older model, replacing the relay may be possibly. If this is a newer board, they build them right into board so a new board is neccessary.

Note: Make sure to check all fuses on the main board before coming to the above conclusion. If you know how to do a continuity test with a multimeter, do this will ALL fuses before replacing anything.
Iyou are not proficient with a multimeter, visually inspect the fuses for breaks in the filiment (if the is a high voltage slow blow fuse that is solid white, start by replacing this fuse. It should be available at any decent hardware store.)

2000 Blazer. No power to the orange wire for either front seat. Which fuse or relay controls the frt power seats? Its not listed on the fuse box covers and I do not have an owners manual.

The orange wire is the power wire for both seats.It gets its power from the power seat circuit braker (20 amp) located at the body relay block.It is located behind left side of dash near fuse block. Remove circuit braker and check for power in body relay cavity that you pulled the relay out of if power is on one side change circuit braker and if no power on either side then you have a bad main fuse near battery or under hood in main fuse block.
