First, is the bike stock? I've seen a lot of bikes that had been hopped up do this due to a much higher static compression created by an aftermarket camset.

Next, take the battery out and take it to a local auto parts house and have them check the battery. If it's good, take note of the CCA, cold cranking amps. Make sure all your battery connections are clean and tight. You may can get a higher rated battery.

Ignition timing may be too high. Your dealer can check that for you.

If all else fails, a high torque aftermarket starter may be the trick. They're expensive by they will crank most anything over.

HVAC fan is on, but the compressor attempts but will not start


Sounds like you have a condensing unit that has a lock up condition; commonly known as "Locked Rotor'.
A simple step would be to be sure the compressor is cool.
Start the unit, and as it try's to start, bump the compressor on the shell sideways to jar it , with a rubber mallet.
If the compressor starts... it may or may not start again at one point.
You can try adding a start assist, or commonly known as a Hard Start Kit. It's simple and the two wires go on the Run Capacitor In parallel with the wires with the compressor wires.
Usually the capacitor has a C common ..F fan.... and M motor terminals . The start assist wires piggyback on Common C and M motor. NOT THE FAN side of the run cap.

2001 blazer makes a grinding or clicking noise during acceleration.


Yes, you need a brake job or clean the brake pads by taking off the tires, then the drums, wipe the inside of the drums of dirt, wipe the brakes off, and reassemble.

2001 L100 2.2 twincam 4cyl. Engine starts then cuts off. Replaced ignition switch housing, replaced sparkplugs, fuel pressure tested ok, all fuses ok. What else could it be?


Alot of the time the security system can fail on GM vehicles. The car goes into anti theft mode and locks out the starter. If you notice a light that says "security" or you see a picture of a car with a lock on it, then this is your problem. Here is a link to help you with this problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

I would check the fuses first to make sure you didnt blow any out from all the battery change, jump starting, bump starting etc. Not sure if your battery was dead originally with the fault showing. You may have a bad alternator. Usually when the fault light comes on you can still drive on the battery for a distance, then the battery will drain/die.

Sounds like you have a loose connection on a battery cable. loosen the bolt and pull off each end and clean, then replace. When you clean them, make sure you get down to clean metal.

Twincam engine light comes on and kills motor


the engine starting only when doing a push start sounds like a bad ignition switch. the coil and ignitor are getting power with the ignition switch at "on" but not at the "start" position.
