06 Suzuki Boulevard C50 won't start.. all fuses are good everything is working well, But when i hit the starter button hear clicking sound near battery.

Could be a dead battery or a dead starter. Get a jump and see if it will start. Also check that the battery terminals are tight and clean. If it still doesn't start, have a mechanic take a look, you might need a new starter.

2011 street glide push starter button nothing happens

Do you hear a click?
Battery charged?

If the battery is charged, and you hear no click when you hit the button, start at the switch itself and check it and the wiring from it.

Car wont start, ignition goes on

Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.

Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.

if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -

A single click when you turn the key to the crank position usually indicates a bad starter. A rapid clicking noise usually indicates a dead battery. If you hear a click and everything goes dead there is a bad connection at the battery.

2001 buell cyclone was ridden 100 miles 3 weeks ago,now it just buzzes...not turning over,just a buzzing sound..when i hit the starter button...battery is charged,but everything shuts off when i hit the...

The battery IS DEAD. The buzzer is the starter solenoid not getting enough juice to close the contact inside itself. Check your battery connections and make sure they are TIGHT, charge the battery and see if it helps, if not - you need another battery or a shop to help diagnose the bike.

When i went to start it the ignition key worked fine & all lights came on but when I hit the start button everything went black - as if the circuit breaker kicked in. what would be making the circuit...


Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery. Sometimes a battery will short out internally and do this. I have a diesel pickup that has done it twice and hit has two batteries. Everything seems fine until you hit the starter, then "bang" everything goes dead and in the truck, both batteries are fried.

On your bike, if it's a short somewhere, when you hit the start button, you should be able to hear and feel the main circuit breaker break. Then, a few seconds later, you should be able to hear it reset. If it is the breaker, you'll need a schematic to determine what is one each fused circuit. The reason you need to know that is because whatever is causing it is NOT on a fused circuit or it would blow a fuse instead of trip the main breaker.

If you don't have a schematic, I have one for a '99 model. It should be about the same. If you'll contact me off forum, I'll e-mail you a copy. This forum will not allow me to send a file over 150kb in size. If I reduce the size that much, when you blow the picture back up it's so distorted that you can't make it out. contact me at Remind me of what you need.

Good Luck

Motorcycle wont start

Check the battery connections, especially if you hear a click just before it goes dead. I know that on my bike, when this happens, the screws that hold the battery cables in place have backed out and not getting a good contact. You would think that with a bad contact that it would stay dead when you turn the key off then back on, but oddly, everything comes back on normally until I hit the starter button. Check the cables.
