Test the voltage of the battery. clean the posts. If you have 12.volts see if you have that at the stater also. Tap the starter a few times. It may start. If it does replace the starter. When asking for advise state everthin you have done and the results if any. This will get you better answere

Yamaha 2002 kodiak 4 wheeler wont start replaced starter relay but makes a buzzing noise when u press the starter

Had a similar problem with my Kawasaki and it turned out to be the relay that had stopped working. I removed the relay by undoing the 2 cables attached to it. Be careful not to allow the cables to touch the frame as one is connected directly to the battery. With the ignition on and everything ready to start the bike, touch the 2 cables together and see if the starter motor turns over (it might even fire up). CAUTION: only do this momentarily as the wiring of the starter motor may burn out if the 2 cables are left together too long. If the starter turns over the relay is faulty and can easily be replaced. Hope this helps, Steve.

Keeps cutting out and wont start

Try changing the solenoid switch of your starter. check your battery too... it might be time to change it depending on how old your bike is.

2001 electra glide wont start starter relay makes a buzzing noise

Hi Anonymous, when you are trying to diagnois anything in the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or better and will pass a load test of 9 volts or better while cranking the engine over and the cable connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends. If you suspect a faulty starter relay just swap it with your horn, brake, or system/fuel pump relay, if the bike starts with no problems replace the bad relay. Good luck

Sounds like a bad battery or a bad starter relay. Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts house. Ask them to load test the battery for you.

If the battery test good, reinstall it in the bike making sure your connections are good. Press the start switch and listen for the buzz. Look for the starter relay. It's a one inch plastic cube. When you find it, press the start button while holding the relay. Is this what is making the noise?

If all you feel out of the starter relay is a simply click, and the buzzing is coming from the starter, you're solenoid may need new contacts installed in it or your solenoid might be bad.

Good Luck

I have a 2005 yamaha classic 1100and it wont crank makes a buzzing sound when trying to start.Tried to jump with cables from truck nothing happend.

Have the battery checked. A fully charged 12 volt battery should show at least 13.5 volts - even with the key turned on and the engine not running. If the battery and its cable connections are good, then find the starter relay and use a large screwdriver to bridge the two big cables connected to the top of it. When you do this, the starter should spin the engine over. If it does, then you got a bad starter relay. If the starter doesn't spin the engine, then you either have a bad starter motor - or no power coming to the starter relay.

I am trying to start my motorcycle and the relay for the starting system behind the battery is buzzing. I bought another one and it is still doing it

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have the battery externally charged and checked / load tested.  The buzzing indicates that the relay is turning on & off in a continous cycle hence the buzzing sound. Possible causes could be a weak battery or a loose ground connection of the starter relay through the diodes, a faulty starter switch or a faulty starter motor.  To determine which:
  • when starting again, short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay but expect a big spark;
  • if the starter motor spins, then possibly the diodes and/or the start button switch would need checking;
  • if the starter motor does not turn, then the starter motor would need looking into more particularly the carbon brushes and/or the commutator segments.

Incidentally, have you tried bump starting the bike?

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
