The starter could be drawing too many amps, if thats the case it will need to be replaced. Also the solenoid. When you say there is "no spark" you mean the spark plugs are not firing? When the bike cranks it will not start?

1988 Suzuki Savage won't start


AT the carb, use a cup and quickly disconnect the gas line... do you have plenty of fuel easily flowing? If you do, suspect a dirty carb OR a bad spark plug coil!

I have an 87 Ford f350 460 big block 4x4 is been sitting 4 years and now put new fuel pump in it and a battery and it won't start I don't know if that has ignition but it will turn over has gas


won't start Addam, verify weather it has spark, if has spark try a little starter fluid in carberator. If runs then quits after starter fluid, the carberator or pump is still the problem. I will post some touble shooting links that may help you.

How do I trouble shoot an engine that won't start?


Hi, Frank and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping. Good luck and have nice a day.

1996 Kawasaki EN 500 Vulcan Classic will not turn over


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the 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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

It won't turn over


Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

My zx400 kawasaki 1992model is hard to start the engine


Check Fuel, spark and air. Is the tank empty? is there a spark at the plugs? is your air filter clean? If all of this is good you might like to give us some more info. Does it turn over, or just click? Does it try to start but won't run?

I have a bought a 1988 katana that want start


The breaker thing is your starter relay and it may be defective or worn out.

These are generic comments

When you turn on your ignition switch, you allow the starter switch to have power. When you press the start button, that energizes a electric magnet in your starter relay which in turn puts the full capacity of your battery at the starters disposal. If this isn't hapening, there is some problem in your relay.

Prove that by jumping those two posts, the ones with the big wires attached. If your starter turns, id suspect the relay. You may have opther troubles as well. Check the relay. BTW - you need really big wire to jump the relay, at least the same size as is going to your starter.

Let me know how you make out.
