The magneto likely puts out AC voltage(check with a multi meter) It has to charge the battery through a regulator, which has diodes to convert to DC and stops it discharging though the mag coil

Hi:) The yellow goes directly to the battery posative and the red goes to the ACC on the KEY switch if the radio is not connected to the posative ACC wire on the Key switch you will have no Radio at all the yellow is just for the radio's Memory and the CD motor and eject.

Hi, Swiftb152 and the usual suspects are:
1. Voltage regulator/rectifier not grounded.
2. Engine ground wire loose or broken.
3. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier module.
4. Loose or broken wires in charging circuit.
5. Faulty stator and/or rotor.

Batt. not ataying charged


Check output of battery when bike is idling.
If still 11 volt, then your charger, which is the magneto is faulty or the wire is broken from it to your battery. If the charge varies when you test when engine dead to engine idling, wire is fine. Should be 13 to 13.5 volt when idling if magneto is ok.

How to turn on the phone spv m3100


there should be a turn on button hold down for 1-2 seconds at the top of the phone if nothing happens the battery may be dead i have an mda vario that if it is not turned on the battery won't charge its just the way they work not a fault.
I got it working by taking the battery out and cut off the small end of a normal usb lead i.e. big usb to small. strip the wires and there should be a red and black wire, posative and negative the red posative and the black negative.
attatch the red wire to the posative metal strip on your phone and the black to the negative strip on your phone, it should say on your phone by the battery or on the battery which side is posative and negative. turn on your computer and plug the usb lead in and then insert the phone battery making sure that none of the wires touch any of the other strips on your phone let your computer load and press the on button at the top of the phone for 2 secs and wait it should turn on and charge.
wait for 10 or so minutes making sure the phone is charging, then plug your charger for your phone in and at the same time remove the usb lead and wait for the battery to charge before taking the wires out of the phone.

I cant get my mda to turn on i hold down the power button for a while but it wont turn on i charged it for 3 days and it still wont work what should i do?


Mda Vario's don't charge when turned off, heres what you do.
cut wire off a usb lead the small end strip the red and black wires, put the red wire onto the posative connection where the battery is it tells you what side is posative and negative on the battery, use black with negative and red with posative making sure that no wires touch the other metal strips in the phone, replace battery plug usb into computer and start up the mda and wait for it to boot. once turned on leave to charge as it will charge through the wires connected to the battery, after 10 to 15 minutes plug in the actuall charger and try to remove usb wires without taking battery out. if that is not possable it is ok as the battery should have enough power to start up once it starts leave to charge and always keep some charge in the phone.

Battery not charging


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem could either be a defective rectifier/regulator combo (most likely) or loose, burned or corroded connectors of the 3 yellow wires from the stator to the regulator (likely) or burned/open stator windings (least likely).

You would need a multitester to verify which is faulty by considering:
  • at idle, output of regulator should be around 12.5 volts and go up as the RPM is increased to about 14.5 max;
  • the regulator's output is directly connected to the battery's + terminal;
  • the stator uses 3 coils connected by 3 yellow wires to the regulator. Due to high charging currents, these connectors often gets burned and loose conductivity/connection. Check for burned terminals/connectors or discolored plastic tab;
  • the stator could be checked for continuity. Each yellow wire should measure 0.3 ~ 0.5 ohms to the next yellow wire at any yellow to yellow pairing;
  • in most instances, the yellow wires should not read a connection to ground with the connector to the regulator removed.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
