You may need to replace the battery here..by the way you explained it's distorted means it wont work..check voltage with a multi meter before you buy a replacement.

Yes, you need to check your charging system. First remove the battery and fully charge it (overnight) then refit, and start the bike. With the engine running at about twice the idle speed check the voltage at the battery. It should be approx 14 volts DC. If it is lower than 12.5 you should look first at the voltage regulator and rectifier. The symptoms you describe lead me to believe your charging system is the culprit. It may also be be your alternator, but check the regulator and rectifier first (cheaper)

Sounds like your belt broke or came off. If the power steering quit working too. The belt runs power steering, alternator, A/C unless it is different belt. Have you looked under the hood at all? If it turns out that it isn't that. Then check all of the connections on the battery and alternator. Check fuses for charging system.

I hope this helps.

Starting The Bike On A Cold Morning


Try putting in new, stock spark plugs. Check and possibly replace the air filter. Charge the battery. Get the bike running then check the battery voltage at 2000 rpm. It should show 14volts or more. If not, get the charging system checked. Get a can of starting spray (for future problems).

Get the compression checked. Your bike is 21 years old and I will bet that the valves are needing to be reseated. Check the valve clearances with a cold engine and reset valve clearances as needed. Check the area where the head contacts th cylinder. Any mist of an oil stain? Tighten the head or replace the head gasket. If replacing the gasket, now is the time to have the shop lap re-seat the valves. Have them sync and balance the carbs as well. Your bike will now have its' manners back and show you the dedication it should.

2003 Grand Dodge Caravan Will not turn over.


First thing I would have checked is the charging system, battery load test, alternator charging, all connections to battery cleaned & checked, as well as any ground straps connected from engine to frame, or firewall.
