Sounds like you have a little corrosion build up in the switch. buy some contact cleaner at your local auto parts store, take it apart and clean it.

When I hit the ignition switch on my 2009 xl883c, one of the relays will click, but the engine does not turn. Sometimes it starts immediately, sometimes it will take 50 clicks of the start button, and...


It sounds like a bad relay or solenoid on the starter. Look on the end of the starter and you'll see a single small wire plugged onto the end of the starter. Pull this wire off and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn the ignition switch on and press the button. The test light should light up or a meter should show battery voltage every time you press the button. Press the button a dozen or so times. If the light does NOT light up or no voltage, replace the relay that is clicking when you press the button. If the test light DOES light up or you do see voltage, it's the solenoid on the starter. If you don't have a test light or meter, simply replace the relay that you feel clicking and try that. I hate to tell people to "parts swap" as that's not being a mechanic but I'm pretty sure that you just want to get the bike back going as quickly as possible. It's up to you if you want to gamble and simply replace the relay.

Good Luck
Steve

My caps wont turn off


Try this. Press: Start>Accessories>Accessibility>On Screen keyboard. Try turning it off from there. If that doesn't work:
1. Choose Start'Settings'Control Panel and double-click Regional and Language Options.
2. In the Languages tab, click the Details button.
3. In the Settings tab, you should see a button called Key Settings. It may be grayed out. If it is, click the Add button and add another keyboard layout (it doesn't matter which one). Press OK.
4. Back in the Settings tab, click to make sure your original keyboard is highlighted and press the Key Settings button.
5. Now under To turn off Caps Lock, click the radio button next to Press the Shift key. Click OK.
6. Click OK twice more to exit the other two dialog boxes.

Check the connections on both ends of the wire from the battery to the starter solenoid and on both ends of the wire from the solenoid to the starter. You have a loose or dirty connection somewhere in the large wires that feed the starter. The sound you are hearing is the solenoid clicking in. There is a remote possibility that the solenoid is bad (dirty inside) and if all the wires are good that's where I would go next.

Loud click when I press the start switch 1989 LS650 Savage


The loud click kinda indicates the starter is the problem. A fainter click would implicate the starter relay as the failing component.

Since I can't hear the noise, I would say first check the starter for 12 volts from hot to ground when the ignition is in start position. If you get 12 volts upon this test, then it's most likely the starter relay.

Then check the relay for continuity with starter disconnected from it and the ignition in start position. To find these components, just trace the red cable from the battery.

More info, let me know.

Charlie

P.S. The lights flicker because the battery voltage is dropping when the starter tries to turn over.

1995 ford f150 makes single loud click when trying to start


Does it make the loud click just once, or will it continue to click when you turn the key?
If it is just once, then there is still a bad connection someplace for the main power. If it continues to click every time you turn the key to "start", then it is probably the starter solenoid itself that is bad. There are two big terminals (bolts) on the solenoid, and if you connect a 12V test light or meter across them, you should see power there. If the light doesn't go out (or very dim) when you turn the ign. to 'start', then the solenoid is bad. If the light goes out and the starter doesn't turn, then there is something wrong with the starter. I suspect the solenoid also because it works better with a strong charge on the battery.

Car will not crank sometimes unless you turn the key many times.


Check battery connections. Sometimes a weak connection will fail under very high loads like starting.

1999 toyota rav 4 will click when trying to start but won't start engine


if it clicks one loud time then its maybe the starter. if its several little fast clicks then the battery is just dead enough not to turn the car over
