Is it trying to fire? Does it turn over on the button but fails to spark up or does pressing the button have no effect on the system? If nothing happening when you press the starter then it could be a few things. The button may be faulty, the starter relay may be faulty or the starter itself may be the problem. Make sure the fuses are all okay, all connections are secure and the battery is fully charged. Follow the positive, red cable from the battery and you should find the starter relay. With the ignition turned on, use a screwdriver and short across the 2 terminals on the relay. Do not touch the frame with the screwdriver and only try for a short time. Does the engine turn over or even start running? If it does I would suspect the relay or the starter button. If it doesn't then maybe the starter motor is at fault. This is not always the reason but in my experience it is the most common.

My 2008 jonway keeps running a new battery down

Hi, Shayne the systems check below is geared towards Harley Davidson so exact numbers might differ slightly with book specs on your bike but the basic principal is the same, in order to check out any main electrical system, you have to start with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better, and be able to pass a load test if necessary. "WARNING" never plug or unplug any electrical connector with the engine running !!!
1. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check 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.
2. Check the voltage drop at the battery when you hit the starter button, anything below 9 volts you might have a faulty battery.
3. Check voltage at the battery with the bike running at 3,600 RPM should be 14.3 to 14.7 volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you might have a faulty voltage regulator.
4. Make sure voltage regulator is "GROUNDED" and functioning properly, watch the video below on how to test a voltage regulator.
5. Unplug the connector to the alternator and hook your multimeter leads to the alternator (pin/socket selection does not matter) set the multimeter to AC volts, at an idle the multimeter should read 16 to 20 volts AC. at 2,000 RPM 32 to 40 AC volts, 3,000 RPM 48 to 60 AC volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you may have a faulty alternator rotor.
6. Set the multimeter to OHM'S, connect one lead to the alternator (any pin/socket) and the other to a ground, the multimeter should read infinity. Connect both leads to the alternator multimeter should read 0.1 to 0.2 OHM'S. If you are not getting these numbers, you have a bad stator.
7. Check all wiring in the charging circuit for worn or chaffed spots and all wiring connectors in the circuit for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, which is the # 1 offender.

i have had to repair one of these with the same problem
and the main problem with all Chinese scooters is the electrics
first thing see if you have a spark first if you have a spark
then it could be your carburetor
other than that its your electrics
what i had to do was take the scooter apart
chop all the junction blocks off the wiring loom
the match the colour codes together and solder the wires together

i know that sound a bit extreme but it makes it more reliable
but look for a spark first

Moped not starting when raining or high humidity.

on a dry day when its starting fine spray all around the spark plug with hair spray its a cheeap and easy fix it worked for my suzuki gn 125 motorcycle every few weeks it needs done but it should sort it out basically whats happening is that due to dampness the electricity must be shorting out and not throwing the full kick into the spark plug i recommend going around any electrics that sit out and spray them its a great water seal

2 year old Jonway 125cc bike cuts out and kickstart fails

check first if spark plug working you can see spark light on it upon kickstart. then proceed with the gas carburetor if gas intake working and not stuck. if no power goes to spark plug trace the source. first the cdi then the ignition coil and the voltage regulator.
