Jump start


I would say you never checked to see if the battery is any good

I most likely is dead or below 12.6 volts & you never jump a dead
battery,you try charging it

Jumping is not charging a battery,you need to own a battery charger

If the battery keeps draining or won't hold a charge you need
a new one,then if the problem exists you have someone do a
Parasitic Current Test to find out which circuit is staying on

My 1999 r1 revs flick upto 7000 and back down to 1000 then to 0


Bad voltage regulator. Mine went bad then started to 'over charge' the battery. I put a voltage meter on it while the bike was at idle. It read as high as 16.1v. After I changed the voltage regulator it idles at 14.1v.

I replaced the battery due to it not being able to hold a charge. After I put in the new battery the tach shot up to 7k (while riding) then down to zero. As soon as I got home I put the volt meter on the battery and found out that the battery was being over charged. The voltage regulator took care of the issue. I hope this helps.

2001 lincoln navigator battery drain


Did you check for B+ voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator ? When yor turn the key to run , not start , does the charge indicator light ? When the vehicle is running is that charge light lit or off ? There is a fuse that supplies B+ voltage to it . Fuse # 30 located in the central junction box , it's a 30 amp fuse ! Plus one more fuse located in the battery junction block # 11 20amp . With out B+ voltage at these connections on the alternator it will not charge .

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.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Something is draining the battery, eventually killing it. Have you had starting problems in the past? Is the car cranking? Have you checked anything, such as alternator, terminals?

sounds like the problem is your battery is not charging when you are riding. The most common cause is a faulty regulator / rectifier. Contact a motorcycle wreckers for these parts, or your yamaha dealer.
Easy way to test is, when your bike is running, and the lights start to dim, before the bike shuts down, using a volt meter, test the voltage at the battery terminals, should be about 14V. If faulty rectifier,no charge going in to your battery, then the reading will be low, about only a few volts. If you dont have a volt meter, then any mechanic shop can do this test for you. best to have this done before buying any parts.

Battery light on


It sure sounds like a alternator problem.Have the output checked on the alternator soon ,because if it is bad the vehicle will be running on just the battery and eventually the truck will stop running when you run out of volts in the battery:)
