Hi,that is the self preservation system in the bike activating to protect the engine from failure,if your bike is doing it regularly then you have a fault in it(probably in the cooling system)and i would get it checked out by a dealer,hope this helps...cheers

No start ran out of fuel ran the battrie died put fuel in and bosted it no start

What do you mean "no start"?
Did you hear the starter-motor spin the engine?
If so, did it not ignite the fuel, and start the normal operation (pistons going up-and-down, crankshaft-turning, fuel being consumed)?
Or, did it not "catch" (spin the crankshaft, but no ignition of the fuel)?

Did you create an air-lock (air trapped inside the gasoline line that goes from the gas-tank to the fuel-injection system) ?
You may need to "bleed" all the air out of that line, so that fuel reaches the engine.

1993 Suburban dies when you turn on headlights

In most 1993 Chevy Subrubans the headlights do not have an automatic option. It is possible to get this feature installed but factor settings do not have this option installed.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How do i change the headlight bulb in a 2004 durango?

I know you posted awhile ago, but I hope maybe this could still help you. If you have a 2004 Durango it it second generation and I wouldn't recommend removing the entire assembly. Turn your wheel one way and then inside the wheel well is a plastic door you slide up and then out and you can reach right into the back of the headlight assembly. Turn the wheel and go to the other side. It's a pain, but it's a lot easier.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire won't even turn over, but the

The radio will work even with a dying or discharged battery.

First, be sure to check all of your fuses in the engine compartment.

A full battery will keep the headlights bright with the engine off. With a dying or discharged battery, the headlights will be noticeably dim.

When you turn the key to crank the engine, does the starter try to turn or make a fast clicking? If so, the battery if low or dying. If it makes a slow click then stops, then it's REALLY dying.

If you don't have a battery charger, go to Walmart and get some jumper cables. Hook up a friend's car to yours. If it starts, then the battery was low, either from a bad battery or a bad alternator.

If it doesn't, you have electrical problems, possibly a bad starter or starter solenoid.

Turn headlight on engine dies

To me it sounds like the alternator is getting bad . I would take it to auto zone or some auto parts and have them test it. Most auto parts will check them for free .

Probably something shorting out. This is something that probably isn't going to be easy to figure out. You need someone that can diagnose it in person
