Hi, Aron before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. 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.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

First of all, basic things to check is the battery. Is the battery ampage sufficient for your car? Re-check connections.

The clicking you hear is the solenoid in the starter motor. Maybe attempt to bridge the connection yourself to rule out solenoid problems.

When it was fitted, are you sure it was properly aligned? Sometimes with these things, it's best to take it out and start again.

Probably melted a fusible link for the ignition circuit or fried a relay. Check all your fuses, especially the high amp ones. Do you have power to the starter when the key is in the "start" position? If not, check the fuses and cables. You sure the battery is not dead? Do the lights come one?

Hello,

First you need to understand that this might have been caused by either the phone or the charger.

To test if it is the charger, test it with another phone to see if it will work, if it does not, then it means the charger is faulty and needs to be replaced.

But if the charger works, then it means the chasrging port of your phone is faulty. To replace it is quite simple, remove the battery cover, the battery and the sim card.
Unkey the hook that are by the two lower end of the phone, they are black and connecting the front cover to the back, then you run a flat object like a credit card or knife around the edge and pull it up from the bottom, the front cover will be easy to pull out now, then you should have some 6 screws around the phone, 2 on top, 2 in the middle and 2 by the lower end, once you remove the screws, you will be able to remove the screen, it is attached to the metal try that protects the keypad. From there, you will be able to also remove the white board, and assess the charging port and replace it with a new one.

After doing this, your phone shoud be in good condittion once again.

Also try out your battery in another phone to ensure the battery is not the problem.

Take care and have a lovely day.
Good luck

I have a 2001 yamaha v star 1100 classic and the starter isnt engaging with flywheel. I put new starter in but still just spinning, not engaging. what should I do next?


Hi, Timothy your starter motor is not/was not the problem that dubious title goes to the starter drive/Bendix/clutch which is a separate component that is activated by the starter motor it is a mechanical gear driven part that engages the clutch pack to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Starter is not turning the motor


If your battery is working well, You've got problem with either solenoid or starter motor.When you press the starter button, you should hear 'click' sound of solenoid, if not problem is in your solenoid ( I suggest for replacement). If there is 'click' sound but your bike will not crank, the problem is your starter motor. Now you need to check your carbon brush. Replace it with new one if you encountered abnormality.
