If you have a multimeter check the voltage across the starter when you press the starter button. If not try it with a 12v bulb this will tell you if you are getting any power.Try these then come back.

What could make my 2003 Kawasaki mean streak shut off at 2000 rpm


Hi, Donald and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary your battery may show 12.5 volts or more but have little or zero amps and must be replaced.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.

Engine will not start, starter checked good, cleanded battery conections. still will not start


It is impossible to propose a diagnosis of your issue without knowing the YEAR, MAKE, and MODEL of your vehicle. Additionally, "car will not start" is not a sufficient description of the issue to give any real guidance.
IF you mean that the starter is turning but the engine will not run, that has nothing to do with the starter. You will need to have the stored codes read out of the ECU as a starting point, and proceed with a standard diagnostic of your engine.
IF you mean that you have tested and replaced the starter and checked the wires but the starter does not TURN, suspect a bad starter solenoid or a bad starter circuit relay or ignition switch. If the starter will not engage at all, suspect a fault with your vehicle security system, starter circuit relay, or ignition switch.

This is a Troy Bilt Big Red Horse Tiller. Wont crank. new battery. ignition switch good. starter relay clicks when ignition switch turned. jumpering the relay makes the starter spin.


The starter solenoid/relay clicking can mean a bad starter solenoid/relay or bad grounding. Not knowing what engine you have as they have used Kohler, Tecumseh and Briggs and Stratton over the years. hope this helps

No Turning of the engine: Starter tested~Good, Battery Tested~Good, Changed the Park/Neutral Switch, but still no response. When I turn the key, I get all the lights and sounds, but the motor will not even...


Change the actual ignition switch? Test light at starter signal wire while someone turns key to see if you have power at signal wire. Check all your grounds after that. Still nothing take steering column apart and change ignition switch .

My 2006 buick lacrosse wont start radio and lights work but its not saying nothing when i try to crank it


Hello! Do you hear a click when the key is turned?...If no click is heard either the ignition key, the Crank relay, the starter, or the battery are suspect...Having lights and radio does not mean the battery is capable of running a starter motor......Put a meter on the battery...should read 12.5 volts...Turn key...Does voltage drop to 8 or 9 volts? Bad battery...If all is well with battery and connections to it...Check the starter fuse # 33 in the under hood fuse/relay box...If the fuse is good that click you should hear is from the Crank Relay in that box...If all of the above is OK connect your meter to the Purple wire that is connected to the starter motor...When the key is turned 12 volts must be on that wire...If there is the starter motor is defective...So, #1...Do you hear a click when key is turned...That would point at a bad starter or weak battery...#2...If you do not hear a click bad fuse #33, bad Crank Relay, bad ignition switch...#3...If fuse is good Bad Crank Relay or Ignition switch; Crank Relay is a low cost item ($10)...Replace Relay...Stop there and send a comment as to results...Guru...saailer
