Sounds like a wire or plug got disconnected while changing the headlight out, the harness that connects to the clutch safety switch, the one that lets the ignition fire when cranking only when the clutch is pulled in. A safety feature so you don't dump the bike if you crank it while in gear.

    Since it is after the headlight change, all I can think of is an electrical connection or short related to servicing the headlight. But since you can push start it, I go back to the clutch, there may be a redundancy that institutes an ignition kill while starting electrically along with the starter kill without actuating the clutch. I've imagined several possible scenarios, but the fact that you can push start the bike takes me back to the wiring harness and the headlight service. I'll not give up thinking about it until you can push the button to start it though. :D

I can't get my 1997 cadillac deville to start. It has been sitting for a couple of years with no activity


If it wont crank over the battery might be to weak to start the car but just have enoughf juice to run the electronics in the car.
Or the starter died.
1st charge the battery up and see if that works.
2nd if the fully charged battery dosent solve the problem then replace the starter.

Suzuki forenza wont even fire or turn over! Headlights and radio work fine just wont start and is new battery!


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

92 firebird wont crank, tried everything nothing


It could still be the security system. The resistors only bypass the key and ignition. If your Theft Deterrent Module is bad, the security light may not turn on, and the car will not start. You can bypass this.

There is one more fuse near the battery, check the starter switch on the handle bar if you have 12V coming in to the switch.

Do head lights stay on (bright) while trying to crank starter? If not, starter motor isn't getting enough current, OR engine is locked. Is there current getting through the solenoid to starter motor? Check the ground connection between the engine and chassis as well as battery and chassis.

Car won't start. It turns over and clicks fast, but nothing. Dad says it may be the starter, but I don't know where the starter is to tap it to see. Can you help?


Right side, down under. You say it turns over? if it turns over, the starter is working. Turning over and cranking are the same thing. It either CRANKS or it DOES NOT CRANK. or it CRANKS but wont RUN. Explain things in these terms so theres no confusion.

2002 2500 won't crank


Check Battery voltage. Is it 12.6V? If less, charge the battery. You say everything else works. I assume you are talking about headlights also. Try turing on the headlights and then starting the truck. Have somone watch the headlights while you do this. If the lights go out while you try to crank, you have a connection ( most likly battery terminals) problem or battery problem. Many batterys break down under load

If the lights do not dim, you have a starter problem. If this is the case, smack the starter with a wooden broom handle and then see if it starts. Maybe you can get one start out of it to get it to the shop to get the starter replaced or rebuilt. The reason the smacking may cause the starter to work is that the brushes are worn just to the point where they do not contact the armature. Just a slight smack and you may be able to het them to go the few thousands of an inch to touch the armature.

good luck

Bad starting


what do you mean "bad starting"

starter dosnt engage?(starter engauges but dosnt catch flexplate or flywheel, maybe dosnt engauge at all)
barely turns over? (like theres no battery causing hard crank)

you can test your battery by starting the car with the headlights on, if the headlights go dim the battery is bad. your battery could be out of date or the alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
