Well you either have a bad battery or a short in the starter motor windings, or a sticking bendix, or a feed wire either the Red one or the Black, earth isent making good contact either on the battery or on engine earth, or starter term but the other thing could be the starter button bad contact inside
But the battery would be my first thing to check as because it looks good and lights up the lights the starter is like shorting out to earth ..

It is the battery, even though its fully charged it doesn't have enough crankin amps "push" to keep the starting turning.

The clicking is a dead give away that there is not enough power making its way to the starter. Check the connections on the battery to be sure that they are clean and free of any corrosion. If that doesn't help then check the connections at the solenoid. Also have your battery tested. It may have gone bad. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Sounds like your battery is shot. If it goes to far past dead, it will not power up even plugged in. Go to a battery store/Best Buy etc. and see if they have one you can use to try. Certain battery types can not go under 25% of a charge or they will not charge again correctly and vice versa. Just a short in the dark but hope that fixes your problem

It sounds like a loose wire to the starter, check the wiring going to the starter for any corrosion, breaks and make sure all the bolts and nuts are tight.

sounds like the starter solonoid is not working properly if the batt cable got hot enough to smoke that says the batt, is ok and it is ok to jump with car, the solonoid is making the clicking noise and a real hot batt sometimes will make it work, the repair is simple and cheap if you are talented just get a solonoid repair kit three screws 5 min, and you are RIDEING.

Wii balance board: i press the power button but nothing happens


Ensure you have fresh AA batteries installed. Ensure that Wii Fit (or any other Balance Board using game) is fully started before pressing the power button.

And, at the risk of sounding silly, ensure that the button is facing away from the TV.

Recharge the battery. Or buy a new one. But make sure you have a fully charged battery.What happened was that the battery drained because it probably needs replacement. When the battery drained too low. The ECU deprogramed itself. When installing a new or fully charged battery. Start the car. You may have to remove the negative cable a few times then restart it for the CPU to go into the default settings.

Problems starting Buell


I finally had some time and it was really nice out but my Lightning won't start. I just had it fully serviced before I parked it for the winter. New synthetic oil new plugs and a TPS reset. It's been sitting with a gas tank 70% full of premium for 4 or 5 months. The battery was extremely low so I trickle charged it over night. The charger said complete. The lights are bright. I went to start it and it barely made a slight sound like it wanted to turn over. Now it just clicks really loud whenever I press the start button. This thing only has 1100 miles on it and looks great. I've babied it and it's been fully services 3 times since new. Any tips? Suggestions?Did you try kick starting it?  Put it is gear and hold the clutch in (with the key on) then push it up to about 5 mph, then pop the clutch.  I had the same problem with my old ZX7R.  It turns out it was my battery.  Even though it took a charge and held one, it didn't hold enough amps to turn over the engine.  And I am thinking that a 1200cc v-twin needs some decent current to turn over.  Could also be a dead spot on the starter.  Also, did you put any stablizer in your tank before you parked it?  It isn't good to leave a tank under 90% full over the winter, especially without any stable in it.  Moisture can get into your tank and ruin the petrol.  Usually it will start though, just will run terrible.,,,

Does it sound like it's starting up at all? Is the problem that only the screen turns blank? You might have just disabled the standard output. Try pressing Fn (bottom left on the keyboard) and the F5 on the top a few times to see if the screen toggles back on. You might also try to run it without the battery, and on the battery only in case it's a faulty battery or power supply that causes the problem. If not, it sounds lsike a serious problem, so if there is any chance of the waranty still being valid I'd call acer support asap.
