Hi, Tony 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.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: Will not attempt to start.

check you have power going to your starter motor, use a test lamp, or a multi meter, test if it lights up, when you press the starter

Tried to install a headlight modulator in a 2011 Triumph Sprint GT. now I have no power whatsoever, battery drained replaced with a new battery and still no horn, lights, or power


It sounds like another fuse is blown or possibly a relay. Check all of them, if none are bad, then make sure your battery cables are good, use a test light to check them. Its more then likely a bad relay though. Good luck !

Triumph sprint rs 955i,all correct lights come on during start up proceedure but there is only the click of the relay switch when you press start button and no ignition, started as an intermittant fault...


try charging up the battery, the starter needs around 60 amps to turn over compared to the lights that only need around 5 amps, maybe it just doesnt have enough power to turn it over... hope this helps
