What things could i look for on my 2009 harley davidson super glide as to why my alarm will not shut off and let start my bike


If you are turning the bike on before turning the alarm off that will happen. If not check and make sure that the connection for the alarm has not come loose.

JUST REPAIRED BROKEN WIRE LEADING TO MY KICKSTAND BIKE WILL START IN NUTRAL BUT SHUT OFF WHEN PUT IN GEAR ALSO IM HAVING PROBLEM WITH BATTERY NOT RECHARGING ON THE BIKE


Your bike apparently has a safety mechanism where the engine shuts off while in gear, if the side stand is extended. The wire you fixed may not have been fixed properly. There is a switch at the end of that wire which senses the kick stand position. See if that switch is working properly. You can bypass the switch by shorting the wire, but remember it's a safety mechanism and it's better to keep it fixed.

I have a 98 yzf1 bike was running been having issues wuth the fuse for the head light started bike today pulled down the drive way bike shut off turned the key off then back on n nothing no lights horn...


Hi, Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. Also check alternator, so that battery is charging.
Do a test for me, start engine disconnect battery. If alternator is working you should have light and horn. Stop, engine reconnect battery. This will give you a better idea where the problem lies.
Good luck.

Dear Expert, I have a 4s kawasaki bike 10 years old. present problem is as i kick it doesnt start. neutral lights flicker and go off. my battery may be old is it? i want to try it myself as so many...


If you suspect the battery you can jump the bike from a car battery. Do not have the car running, 12volt to 12volt, do not crank the starter too long or your could burn out the starter. If the bike still does not start and the lights still flicker you probably have dirty contacts in your kill switch or more likely the ignition switch.Take the switches apart and clean them or replace them. Also corrosion can be an issue where ever two wires are connected in the harness. Systematically unplug and replug all the harness connections and concentrate on the plugs around the head light bucket and battery (flickering nuetral light). Remember a simple dirty battery connection will stop any vehicle in its tracks.

I have a cobra alarm on my motorcycle.I left the lights on and the battery died.now i hav no spark and the bike wont start.can u help?


HI, SOUNDS LIKE THE IMOBILISER HAS NOT TURNED OFF, YOU HAVE NOW RECHARGED THE BATERY, I WOULD THINK THAT THE BATERY INSIDE THE ALARM UNIT IS ALSO FLAT, CHECK THE FUSE FITTED TO THE ALARM HARNES
, IT COULD BE YOU HAVE DISCONECTED A WIRE OR BLOWN A FUSE WHEN REPLACING THE BATERY, RE CHECK ALL CUT OFF SWITCHES, SIDE STAND IN THE UP POSITION, AND ALSO TRY RESETING THE IMOBILISER

1992 jeep yj will not turn over


Try jumping the solenoid,pull the actuator wire off the solenoid(the small one)This will engage the starter so make sure your in nuetral or park,run a wire from the solenoid actuator to the positive battery post,if the starter engages your ignition switch or starter relay have become faulty,if the starter does'nt engage the solenoid has gone bad.Post back if you need more help.

1998 Honda Goldwing will not start nothing.


Sort of sounds like a Twilight Zone kind of problem doesn't it. I would have the battery checked for an internal dead short. This is something that happens on odd occasions and can happen even to a new battery. Yea, the little lights will work ( they do not draw much juice ), but the starter motor draws a lot of juice and a shorted battery just ain't got it. Also check the wiring harness connections. One loose connection can cause bunches of trouble.
