Hi, it is probly you battery, retifier or generator: generators are alternating current ( A C ) and the rectifier changes alternating current to ( D C ) direct current. if the retifier is passing A C then the battery will be no good anymore. testing for A C diconect the battery and check with voltmeter (set at 20 volt D C) if needle shows left hand swinging to right hand and back and fore, then your retifier is U / S unserviable also you will need a new battery, or your altinator is OPEN CIRCUIT, inside the engine the way this works there are 4 magnets 2 are north and 2 are south facing alternatave on the crankshaft and there are 2 horseshoe shaped stators, it starts with north then south and then the current go's one way then the other hence altinating, when a magnet is past near a coil it will produce current, but not direct current. we need the rectifier to change this. with a volt meter it will test the battery for volts and if it is dicharged. hope it is helpful gerry

My Thomas 6v Ride -On Train works, but VERY slow. It sounds like its really struggling to go. I have TWO fully charged batteries so I know its not the battery. Everything else on it works great...


It sounds to me like your battery needs to be replaced. The batteries lose their ability to hold a full charge after some time (especially if they've sat for a long while without a charge). You can get the battery tested at a trusted shop, but it might be more econimical to just replace the batteries with fresh batteries and see if that solves the problem. New batteries will charge much better and hold the charge much longer.

Riding lawn mower stopped working, now it just makes a clicking noise when you turn the key, the grass was pretty high when this happened...did the engine blow?


the battery is just probably low,, make sure it has a full 12 volts or better, check to make sure the battery posts are clean and making good contact ,,, riding mowers charge slowly, and if the current can't charge the battery , then the mower is just draining it as you run it, hitting a large clump of grass could stall out the motor, But I doubt it Blew it up,, check those items ,, Good Luck

I don't kown anything about charging batteries! How do I carge a battery in a 2008 Husqvarna riding lawn more?


mille get yourself a cooler and put 8 cold beers in it. Put that cooler into the gap between the seat and the "dash" of the mower. Make sure your gas and oil are good. Have someone jump start your mower from a car and then you mow and drink and mow and drink until the beer is all gone. If the mower does not start from the battery the next day go out and buy yourself a new battery. If the battery and charging system are good then you do not have to charge it if it is being used regularly.

Is Idle adjustment important when it comes to charging the battery on a 1998 Suzuki Intruder VL1500? I do seem to have a problem and I find myself having to place a trickle charger on it every once in a...


No, idle adjustment isn't the important thing. Amount of riding and amount of time parked is the thing. If you don't ride much, and it is parked for long lengths of time between rides, you will have a lower battery condition.

However, if you ride a lot and it doesn't get parked for long periods of time, you may want to charge the battery fully then put load test on it to check for one or more dead cells in the battery.

If the battery is not the problem, then you will need to check your charging system.

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

Battery not holding a charge,


Check the charging rate of your bike, see if its system is charging, if it does charge thn theres somewhere the battery is getting drained out.
In order to see if tht is happenning, switch off everything and thn remove one battery wire on the battery, after doing so try to fix it back and notice if theres any sparks when it comes to the contact of the battery terminal , if so thn theres a drain somewhere in the electricals and wiring.

Good luck.

Bad battery


Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november, so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test.
