-is it in gear?
-Clutch in?
-Check the fuse link to ensure that the fuse is not blown, fuse link is on the right hand side of bike between the seat and fuel tank.
-Check all wiring to ensure that there are no broken or cracked wires. Make sure that the connections are all tight.

Yup. Usually this is an indicator of a bad battery connection on the ground side. Remove and thoroughly clean the battery cable and the battery terminal.. Turn on your headlightsand make sure they are bright. have someone watch them and uou go to start the engine. If the light go out, It is a connection. If it just dims it is a bad batter. good luck

    Yes, there is a way. Bypass the relay entirely. Jump the cable on each side of the relay. If the starter cranks, Your relay is kaput. Make sure all connctions are good before you start changing parts__ Keep me posted on your progress, it would be appreciated. _Ned__

    Still doesn't crank, so I got a starter kit, changed the springs and brush set. But still clicking, tomorrow night I will try opening the flywheel (starter clutch?) to see if everything is in order.... I 'm not the most knowlegeable repair person but willing to dig in and learn... any tips are appreciated.

  • boulemontpla May 11, 2011

    Hi CO7196,
    - Tonight I just opened the starter clutch, everything seemed in order.
    - Tested the starter independently, spins well
    - When I rotate the flywheel (gear idler) it seems to rotate both ways which might be a problem.
    A would have two questions (I hope pretty simple) :
    First how do I check oil level when bike is on the stand or when bike is hold vertically? (there might have been way too much oil in which could cause a skip in the fly wheel I guess.)
    Second the Gas "lever ****" when the arrow is pointing in the middle the gas does not flow, but what does it mean when the arrow points down or up? Which way does the gas flow?

  • boulemontpla May 11, 2011

    Just to note that the starter is spinning, turns the starter clutch once every ten times... oil is clear no sign of wearing out, all teeths are there on the wheels...

Honda VTX 1300 R will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous 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.

2004 buick rendezvous sometimes won't start. clicks but won't turn over. replaced starter, battery, and ignition switch. what now??


We just went through this with our 2003 Rendevous. Clicking like crazy but wouldn't start. Replaced the starter but still doing the same thing. Our next step was going to be replace the battery (which tested well) and the ignition assembly. Out of frustration, I hit the top of the hood and the headlights came on!! Further investigaton proved that the problem was a corroded ground wire on the battery. Hope this helps

Car will not start. Brand new starter, wire to starter test good, good battery relay tested good. Why won't it start?


Is the ignition switch good? If the starter/solenoid; starter relay, battery and cables are all good that is about the only thing left.

Do you hear a click when you turn the switch?

2004 Mini Cooper automatic.Car won't turn over. Battery indicating 14 volts using multi-meter. I get a single click when I turn the key, then nothing. I suspect bad solenoid. Not sure how to test/check...


if the clicking noise is from the starter,you can tap the starter while someone tries to start the car.if it turns over and starts then the starter motor will need to be replaced.if you can get to the starter,using the multi-meter you can check to make sure the solenoid is getting battery voltage at the wire that gets voltage when the key is turned.if you do and you have battery voltage at the larger wire on the starter then this will also indicate the stater motor has a bad spot in it and will have to be replaced.the clicking noise is usually an indication that the solenoid is working passing the voltage to the starter armature but the starter is drawing too much amperage to turn the motor over.either way its recommended to replace the complete unit as if the solenoid is bad the motor itself will usually go bad shortly after.

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer and when you turn the key it won't do anything. I have had the battery, starter, fuses, ignition, and relays all checked and they're all good. I even tried jumping the...


Hello, What you are saying is the starter will turn if you jump the starter Relay. If you want to try this a second time, make sure the Ignition switch is in the RUN position. It should start.

Be sure to have the vehicle in Park. There are some Interlocks in the gearshift and Brake pedal that prevent when certain things happen. When your vehicle is in Park or Neutral, the power wire from the Ignition switch can make a connection to the wire that controls the starter Relay.

But first this wire has to get the okay from the Interlock switch, that the gearshift IS either in Park or Neutral. If this switch is bad or misaligned, the connection will not reach the starter Relay. You need to take off the small wire at the starter Relay and hook up a test light or meter. Then turn your Ignition key to START. The small wire should have power when the key is held in the start position.

If the small wire does not have power, then everything connected to that wire needs to be traced back to the Keyswitch. The cables or rods that move in the gearshift or steering column may be out of adjustment. Not too expensive to correct.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.
