SOURCE: no electrical power to my bike.

Try another Ignition switch to see if any power is available. Unfortunately this is a problem that can't be solved here, wiring is something that needs to be diagnosed by someone working on the bike.

Bike will turn over but won't start wiggle wire harness an lose all electrical and I lose all electricals, no dash lights, no lights, no starter button. Nothing replaced all fuses and got electricals

What kind of bike? It sounds like maybe the kill switch is either stuck or there is a loose connection somewhere. My cbr does it from time to time, but if I switch the handlebars back and forth holding the start switch it'll fire over, either that or you might have a bad connection between the wires and the ignition relay, check your power going to the cdi box and voltage regulator, and double check the ignition fuses for power whe the key is on

I have a 2005 Honda VT750 Spirit and was leaving work the other night, bike started fine but it stalled as I turned in to go clock out... hit the started button twice. On the second attempt I heard a click...


I read your problem start to finish of what you described. I believe i know what the problem is, and what i will do is explain some I hope basic mechanical mumble jumble to explain what I believe is wrong and happening.

You were driving along and and all of a sudden it stalled and then your tried to start it and, second attempt you heard click in right side cover area. that was your starter relay that was trying to work. Now I realize that you just replaced your starter relay, which is ok, but that was not you have checked your battery you say, and checked all battery wires, and you say that is ok. Here is where the problem is, this problem is a short in your ignition, or worn contacts in your ignition. Point is it is your ignition, ASSUMING that all wires from ignition via to the battery are hooked up good and strong, no loose connections, no corroboration and battery was tested good.

See here is the deal, no matter what could be wrong with the bike starting or not, or starter, or relay or inline fuse etc, would have nothing to do with the fact the headlights and gauges are not working, which MEANS simply this. If your head lights and gauges are not coming on when turning the key on, this means there is a short in the ignition (where key engages) Let me explain more.

When putting in the key, sometimes the contacts get warn, mostly cause from age, and ware and tare.In side the ignition are several wires that operate your fuel pump/relay and solenoid, head lights,tail lights, dash gauges, and so much more. Main thing it also does and nothing will work is it is connected to your charging and electrical system, which means to your battery. Because none of your lights are working, this tells me there is ONLY two things this can be, now we can eliminate the battery itself and connections based on you saying you checked this, so this leave ONLY ONE area, and that is the ignition. This could be a short,loose wire that brings the hot power from your battery, inside ignition where key has worn contact to trigger the hot control to the battery, Bottom line is, if you turn key on and can not get any power or headlights etc, then ignition needs to be replaced or wires directly to it checked for frayed or loose connection. The tumblers in the ignition, is nothing to really see, could be just worn, and replacing whole ignition is best. You can also test ignition by using a 12 volt wire tester, to see if you have hot lead lighting up that goes to battery, when key is turned on, and if not for sure it is whole ignition needs replacing. I hope this helped you with out getting to lengthy on explaining whats happening. But that is the area where the problem for sure is. Thanks Mike , from fixya.

No power when turning bike on, battery is good

Sounds like you have a blown main fuse usually located on the starter solenoid next to the battery. It is possible that the fuse is in the main box too. If the fuses are good the electrical contact base under ignition key may need to be cleaned or replaced (unlikely on a bike this new)

The key isnt starting the car

Absolutely. Could also be that the smart key has a dead battery or has been compromised by moisture, etc.

Can you still lock & unlock the car with the smart key? If so, the battery is not dead, and you should look next at the ignition itself. Is there any response when you put the key in? Can you turn it? Are there signs that your battery is drained (dim/no lights work, etc)? If you are getting no response when you put the key in and you can turn it, and it still works to unlock your car and you can verify that you have battery power, start by checking your fuses. The ignition and starter fuses would be the first to check.

No response from the ignition switch

If there still is no response to your ignition switch once that you already have check the fuse in the starter solenoid of your bike then you have to service the ignition system. but if you can't then you have to go to a mechanic. The mechanic should check the ignition switch , the ignition coil ,the starter solenoid, the spark plug ,the spark plug cable , then the battery. if there is a malfunctioning or worn out of these said parts then you have to repair it or replace it. then you also have to check the wires if there are loose wires or worn out wires then reconnect if loose wires but if worn out then replace the wires.the most important for some times is the fuse if there i a worn out fuse you have to replace the worn out fuse. But if the fuse you replace cant hold the wat/amp of the bike then place fuse that is higher than the former fuse you place.

Electrical Help Please

nada. No gauges no lights absolutely nothing. All that happens is when I turn the ignition switch off the tach bounces backward quickly about 6 or 8 times. I put the bike on the battery tender and within 20 minutes it was showing in good shape. Still nothing. Checked battery leads. No problem. I checked all the fuses around the battery and up next to the dash. Nothing there. I R & R'd all of the relays next to the dash and the 3 behind the tool kit with the same relays off of my Mille. Still nothing. I changed the odd relay next to the battery that says UP on it. Don't know what it is but it rattles. Maybe a tip over sensor? Nothing. I tried jumping the bike off with a portable jump start battery. Nothing. I switched the battery out. Nothing. I pulled the front fairing and checked all connections. Found everything to be just fine. Put a battery charger on the fully charged battery and suddenly got ignition lights and headlights. Turned the key back off and once again nothing. A few more times it would come back and show lights and gauges but when I went to start everything went dead again. I'm thinking maybe the ignition switch? It doesn't seem worn out at all. I jiggled the key didn't seem to make a difference. The bike only has about 10k miles on it. Any ideas? ,Some 'friend'... did this ever happen to him? Good diag work so far, and I don't have anything specific to look at. Hopefully one of the sm-m-m-marter members can assist. ,,,
