You can check the solenoid by using a large screwdrive to briefly bridge across the two large cable connections on top of it. If the starter spins when you do this, then there's the problem: the solenoid.
If the starter doesn't spin, that would suggest a problem with either the starter motor, or the cable that provides power to it (loose, broken, or corroded connection).

2001 Kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Drifter wiring diagram


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, dim or surges from bright to dim to bright the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty headlight relay.
9. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
10. Weak charging alternator/generator/lighting coil.
11. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

2001 Kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Classic will not crank over


Hi, Fmueller05 before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit 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.

TURN KEY ON...NO POWER OR DASH LIGHTS...ITS LIKE THE KEY ISN'T ON?


Check the battery and it's connections. There is also a fuse in the battery positive wire close by. If the battery is well charged and wiring and fuse are ok, then check in the headlight housing for a connection that may have pulled apart. It's also possible that the key switch has failed. Hope this helps!

Replaced selenoid, tested battery, still won't start?


Your motor might be hydro locked with gas if the bike has sat for a long time. Pull the spark plugs and try to start it. PUT RAGS OVER THE SPARK PLUG HOLES, disconnect the plugs from the wires. Chaz Moto DC

My 2001 vulcan 1500 will not start. the indicator lights work but when i try to start it all lights go out for a second then come back on again. battery shows fully charged on trickle charger.


Measure the voltage on the starter side of the solenoid with the kill switch ON and the key ON and the starter switch PRESSED - trans in N. IF it is not 12 volts, it may be faulty.

you might have a charging system problem without the bike charging system it is only running on the battery power, and once the battery is too low to fire the ignition it will die, check your fuses and power cables to the battery, selenoid and starter, then check the regulator/rectifier, could also be your stator or rotor, only a few possabilities but you will find it.

DEAD BATTERY


Probably. I would remove the battery and take it to a local auto-parts store to have it load tested, or at least test it with a hydrometer after you think it is fully charged. Test methods here.
