Battery fully charged. (has power)

Solenoid clicking. (power to this electric switch)

Check voltage on both large wires on your solenoid. One should be hot all the time. the other not except ... When you press the start button, the other big terminal should become energized. Does it?

If it does, id next check the connection on the starter ... power there with the button pressed? Is your wire intact? Proper size? Does it get hot?

Only one thing left ...

Id take the starter off the machine then jump from a known good battery (your car) to both ground (the shell of your starter) and the terminal where the wire goes. Put your foot on it or place it in a vice - DO NOT TRY TO HOLD IT WITH YOUR HAND!!!

If it runs in this condition ... reassemble.

if it doesn't ... I suspect you might be in need of brushes. Check that ... then go have a chat with the parts man at the motorcycle shop. See what he of she says.

I hope this helps you ...

SOURCE: starter won't engage

First, make sure that your battery is in good condition, FULLY CHARGED, and the wires/cables that are connected to the Battery Terminals are clean and securely connected, and the same with the Ground wire/cable from the Battery terminal to the Frame. If you still have that problem, is sounds like you need to replace your STARTER RELAY, and/or Clean or Rebuild the Solenoid. ALSO, check that the wire connection TO the solenoid (that's the small green wire that comes from the Starter Switch) is clean and securely connected. Good Luck.

Just clicks when trying to start. battery is fully charged

Probably either a bad Solenoid Switch or the Starter. The Solenoid Switch would be the first suspect. The positive battery cable runs from the battery to this switch.

Solenoid clicking

If you mean a series of rapid clicks, like a machine gun, either the battery is low (but you stated the battery is fully charged), or a bad connection.

One loud click is usually the starter relay, about a $10-$15 part.

Hyosung GV 650 wont start. Battery is fully charged and starter don't even click when trying to start?

This will be either the starter solenoid is faulty or the starter motor needs replacing.Have the solenoid checked before removing the starter motor.

Trying to fix my Volvo S60 2002 model. It won't start but when I hook the jumper cables to the my battery i have all interior power. when i try to turn over the engine nothing happens except clicking....

Make sure you have a fully charged battery...clean the terminals real well.
Alternator only charges the battery when the correct engine rpm is attained.
A clicking noise could be the starter solenoid which is basically a relay / contactor but can block power from reaching the starter.
Worn brushes in the starter can also zap a battery's power.

Battery, starter and aloternator can be tested at most part stores.

From what you describe, I'd clean battery terminals and ensure battery is fully charged.
If clicking still happens, I'd move to the solenoid and starter.

Hope this helps...

I have a 92 Buick Lasabre and yesterday I ran out of gas. I got more gas put in and now when I try to turn my car on there is a clicking noise, is this the starter going bad or the battery?

The clicking noise is the starters solenoid making that sound. If the battery & starter connections are clean and tight along with a fully charged battery the solenoid is at fault

When trying to start 2000 Jetta, the relay clicks but Engine does not crank. Removed the battery and connected the battery cables to another car (which was running). Relays click a little bit more rapidly...

Sounds like a flat battery, it will have enough power to kick in the starter solenoid [the clicking noise] but not enough to turn engine over. Best to fit a battery that you know is good into the vehicle. If the fault still persists the starter could be faulty. To check the starter bridge the main battery power terminal [30] on the starter solenoid and the smaller terminal [50] also on the solenoid [power from ignition switch]. The starter should turn. MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL WHEN DOING THIS AND TAKE CARE NOT TO BRIDGE POWER CABLES TO STARTER HOUSING.

If the battery is good and fully charged, it should turn over. If you have a pull rope as well as the starter, make sure the engine will rotate. If not, you can do the same thing by placing your hand on the air vent screen on top and twisting the air screen. If the starter was hung up, usually the solenoid won't click. Have your battery tested, make sure that it is fully charged. Although unlikely, the solenoid could be bad. I'm betting it's the battery charge.

Our 2001 saturn sedan wont start we only hear a click noise. can it be a blown fuse for the security on the car that may be causing the car not to start

Chck that the battery is fully charged . There used to be a syaing that, "many clicks means it's a bad battery. One click may be the starter". The solenoid is not engaging the flywheel. If the battery is fully charged the starter is bad.

Turnover problem with toro 16-42z riding mower

A fully charged battery should read a minimum of 12.65, if it does not and connections and grounds are dirty then that's your problem. Start with a none fully charged battery.If you can bypass the solenoid and start it then the culprit is the solenoid. Good luck. donnyb60
