Battery goes dead when car isnt even on

You have something drawing on your battery. disconnect the nevagative cable. hook a test light between the negative cable and negative battery post and pull fuses till the test light goes out. when the test light goes out you've found the circuit that's drawing down your battery. trace the circuit and look for a short to ground or if something on that circuit is staying on.

Hi, Anonymous nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. A severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
13. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
14. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
15. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
16. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
17. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
18. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
19. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
20. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
21. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
22. Check for engine trouble codes.

My battery goes dead , and its new . bike isnt charging .. what could be the problem also , the model is a kz1000

It may be the stator coils or the regulator.
the stator should have 3 wires coming out, any pair of these should have the same resistance.
no resistance or shorted to earth-stator no good.
with the bike running these three (any pair) put out around 50vAC
so if this is normal ,then its probably the reg\rectifier.
volt meter across the battery will read 12v bike stopped and rise to 13-14v dc bike running if all is well.

voltages can vary between bikes and models, but these should give some idea

Hi can you tell me the firing order for 87 gpx 750. Regards Paul

The firing order on your bike is 1,3,4,2. These bikes use what is called a wasted spark system. They fire whenever the piston reaches top dead centre.
That is to say they fire on top dead centre compression as well as top dead centre rock-over( exhaust/inlet ). Each coil has two leads on them.
The left coil goes to number 1 & 4 cylinders.
The right coil goes to number 2 & 3 cylinders.

The GPX 750(like most road bikes) have a resistor type spark plug cap on them that was prone to cause problems.

To test the coils/caps, use a multi-meter to test their secondary resistance.

To do this set the meter to kilo-ohms(1000 ohms), place one meter probe in one plug cap & the other probe in the other plug cap( i.e. 1&4, 2&3 )

The meter should read 10kilo-ohms to 15 kilo-ohms.

If it reads higher than that try un-screwing each cap & test the coils with the caps removed by probing the leads. If the coils(without caps)read about 5 to
10 kilo-ohms, check the caps.
The caps should read 5 kilo-ohms each.
It is very common to find these open-circuited.
Replace any open circuit caps.

I hope this has been of some help.
Otherwise if you can be a little more spacific with your problem I will try to help further.

Have an 2000 kawasaki zx750 that wont start only the neutral light and oil light comes on. Also the headlights wont come on. the bike turns over when i disconnect the fuel pump relay but when i reconnect...

Is the battery dead or dying?

My thought is your battery is 99% dead. When you disconnect the load you descrive, there is 1% of the battery trying to do what you want.

Remove the battery from the bike and have it tested at a auto parts or motorcycle parts place. If you can do a hydro test on it, you can do that test. A good reading ia 1200. Put a small charger on it if you like. Im guessing it is not worth charging but try just the same. That way, when you plunk your hard earned $ down for a new battery, you will not feel bad.

Let me know what happens

Red light keeps comming on and battery goes dead.

Alternator and stator....put a voltmeter on the battery - it should read about 12- 13 volts. Then start the bike.... when its running, the volts should increase.... if it doesnt....your charging system isnt working.

Honda 1985 1200 Gold Wing

First have the battery(s) tested. A number of car parts places will do it free. The test must be under load. Voltage may be fine in a discharged battery. In a 1985 Gold Wing the problem may be in the ignition switch. have the switch checked out.

Hello mdellarusso. Disconnect the power to your phonebase. Remove the battiers from the portables. If the battiers are over 2years old replace them. Wait for 10minutes. Reconnect the base AC power, reinsert battiers and place on their chargers. Perform an operational test. If test fails I suggest a replacement system. Good Luck.
