Look on the right hand side of your bike and find the starter. There is a pentagon shaped plate on the end of the starter. Just above this plate, there is a single wire connector. Unplug the connector and connect a volt meter or test light to the wire end of the connector. Turn the switch on and press the start button.

If the light does not light up, replace your starter relay. If the light does light up, your starter has a problem.

Good Luck
Steve

2000 Pontiac sunfire won't start makes no noise when turn key over . headlights and radio work and dome light .. I have replaced steering column and ignition switch


This could be a couple different things causing your No-start condition. first thing I would check (Battery is good) access the starter solenoid, the small single wire connection is the start signal. Test for 12 volts here with DVOM or test light while someone turns the key. If there is 12 volts reading, the starter solenoid is defective. If there isn't 12 volts reading check all the fuses (with test light).
The second item causing the trouble could be the Neutral Safety Switch (Auto Trans) or Clutch Safety Switch (Manuel Trans) These could be open or out of adjustment.
Hope this helps you...

Attempted to start , pushed start button , engine turned over maybe 3 seconds then stopped. pushed starter button again , Got no response from starter , thinking bad battery bought new one. still no...


Ok, make sure your battery is installed and connected correctly. The connections should be clean and tight. Now, look at the end of your starter. You'll see a five sided plate with a tower like thing in the middle on the end of your starter. Just above it is a single wire that plugs onto the starter. Unplug this wire and insert a test light into the wire. Turn your ignition on and press the start button. If the light lights up, your starter is bad. If it doesn, you've got another problem.

If the light does not light up, you'll have to find the starter relay. Harley moves these things around all the time so you never know where to look for one from year to year. I'd start under the seat and then move to the side panels if necessary. The relay is a typical one inch cube made of plastic. When you find it, turn on the igntion and press the start button while holding the relay. It should click. If if doesn't, it's probably bad and even if it does, it's probably bad. I'd replace the part as it's not all that expensive.

If you suspect the starter, go back and remove the three screws that hold the five sided plate onto the starter. Behind the plate you see a plunger with a spring on it. NOW, MAKE SURE THE TRANSMISSION IS OUT OF GEAR. Using a large screwdriver, push the plunger into the starter as far as it will go. The starter should engage and turn the engine. If not, you may have to replace the large copper contacts in the solenoid.

I hope this helps you find and fix your problem

Car won't start. My guess is either ignition or perhaps starter. Battery has plenty of juice and fuses on fuse panel all look good.


IF YOU TURN IGNITION SWITCH ON POSITION GET NO DASH LIGHTS RESPONSE.IGNITION SWITCH IS BAD.IF YOU ARE GETTING DASH LIGHTS.YOUR STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER IS BAD.THE STARTER REAY IS BAD OR FAULTY CLUTCH PEDAL SWITCH FOR MANUAL TRANSMISSION OR TRANSMISSION PARK NEUTRAL SWITCH OR SHIFT SENSOR BAD.THESE ARE THE POSSIBLE CAUSES.

1995 nissan maxima doesnt start when cold, just clicks, and after trying for 5 to 10 minutes it finally starts... Please help me out...


it is one of two things.
  • the starter is either worn and brushes not making contact or an engine oil leak onto the starter. thus keeping the brushes from making contact you can check this by banging on the starter while someone trys turning the ignition back and forth to start.(making the click click click)

  • ignition switch is weak, not providing enough voltage from the to kick the soliniod all the way to start the starter

The way to check that is to hot wire the starter soliniod little wire, to battery voltage. (the big cable on the solinoid)
If it turns over good, then you can either replace the ignition switch or install a relay someware near the starter to supply it with propper current to kick the solinoid all the way to engage the motor.
The relay acts as a remote starter switch that feeds more direct power to the starter solinoid.Now the only thing the ignition switch is responsible for, is trigger the relay.

I suspect the starter solenoid,mounted on the starter was 'stuck' on the engaged position.operation in the condition you describe has caused it's failure.starter needs to be replaced.

1996 Saturn SL2 - No response from starter - over past 3 days it has been intermitant - all lights from ignition switch but no response from starter - In 100 attempts, it has started 3 times - Battery is...


It would be hard to guess but a simple diagnostic would be to use a 12v test light and see if the starter solenoid recieves a 12 v signal while turning the key. If it lights, the starter should turn over. This also gives you the oportunity to check and verify all electrical connections at the starter including the large orange fusible link wire at the large battery terminal.

'92 Honda Accord. Starter will not engage.


I Had This Same Problem I Got 3 Bad Ones In A Row And Finally Got One That Worked Good. A Good Thing To Do Is Before You Buy It Have Them Test It.
