Vehicle not starting

When key is in off position turn key to on and listen very carefully near gas tank or fuel inlet. Likely take 2 people. Do not try to start the car only turn the key to on. You should hear the fuel pump kick in. I'm willing to bet it's bad. Just a guess, I'm an a.c. guy but had that problem once.

I have 2002 ZX12R, I took all the fairings off to get painted and while I had it apart i had my valve cover gasket replaced cause it was leaking on left front corner, and while I had it apart I had the guy...

Something like that sounds like he simply missed a connection on the upper harness. There is a connectors over and to the left side of the engine. Check all the connectors.

Okay i own 1996 suzuki gsxr750 now i have recently took everything off the bike to get parts painted tank,fairings, etc. while i was doing some minor things with the bike while it was completly stripped...

Bike batteries need full charge to start a bike, if there is less than full charge you can't even push start them. No click generally means no charge, the clicking sound is the solenoid working.
When you just start the bike and run it at idle, even fast idle. The battery does not get sufficient charge. What you take out of it to start it, is more than what you put back in it when you run it at idle. Bikes need to be at road speed to charge efficiently.
Also just sitting around they discharge, you may have an earth leak also. That causes your battery to discharge at a more accelorated rate than normal. If it has a clock in it, this bleeds off a small amount of power but still enough if it isn't being correctly charged.

1997 intrepid wont start been sittng for four days now no clue whats wrong with it. kicks over dont start.

check gas flow there is a little valve stem on the gas rail. if no gas then the fuel pump is gone see if you can hear it turn on when you turn key to the red lights in dash no sound try leaving key on and kick the tank fuel pump could be stuck.

Fuel pump not coming on.

Have you connected back the pump properly? Does the pump relay engages as it should?This will happen when you turn the key while the kill switch is at "run" position.

CBR 250 not starting

Sound like you have a fuel problem.Turn the key without starting the bike listen for a slight buzzing noise it will come from where the end of the tank and the seat meet this is the fuel pump priming if you can not hear anything then most likely your fuel pump is not working.Your carbi may have grit in a jet a carbi cleaner can help.
I hope this helps!
