Battery checks 12.83 on a volt meter, will not turn the motor over just klicks

Check the solenoid with a volt meter and make sure it puts 12 volts to the starter when button is pressed. If meter shows 12 volts then the stater probably needs starter cable lugs tightened, new brushes or the whole starter. If the meter shows low voltage when button is pressed then check the wiring and lugs between solenoid and battery. And some bikes may have a fuse that feeds the cable to the starter solenoid.

No power to starter starter is good

Confirm power is availible at starter main power supply, step one , using mutl meter check for 12 volts at battery positive terminal , 2, check main voltage supply lead to starter from battery pos post , 12 volts present? yer check voltage supply lead from battery pos post to altenater , then to starter , 12 volts present, yes , check small wire to starter at starter for switched 12 volts present yes change stater after confirming suitable ground, no, trouble shoot ignition / starter switch in colume

Truck will not start

Best thing to do. Take the starter to a shop to test for you if it's good or not.
-If not good, replace it
If good then do the following:

Q: Can you turn on the head light and horn?
A: Yes.
-Okay check all connectors from battery to starter must be good connect (tight). If not tight it.
A: Yes all tight.
-Now hook up a volt meter to the end of the cable at starter and ground. Any voltage ?
A: No.>>> It's bad cable (Due to corrosion)
Yes. there is 12 volts there.>>>The wire to the starter solenoid
is either bad connect or not connect. If so connect it.

Q: What is the solenoid?
A: This is mechanic language ( It is a small motor that attach to the stater)

-Yes that wire is connect good.
-Okay. it connect good but still can't start. Now unplug that wire and hook up the volt meter to the wire and turn the key to start .
You should have 12 volts there. If not Check fuse and relay.

Have a 99 vw passat 1.8 ,the car was working fine but now i have a big problem whit the stater..i cant shut it off... is like if the starter is conected direct to yhe batery,the only way to stop the...

There are two wires to the starter motor. One wire is big as a battery cable for power to the motor to work, the power circuit. The other wire is small as a speaker wire for signal to activate the motor action, energiz
You need to check first that the small wire is not staying energized. Disconnect it from the starter motor solenoid. Connect the battery as normal. The starter motor should not do anything. This means the control wire is staying energized, if it is staying energized that circuit needs to be tested back to the ignition switch, the ignition switch may be shorted or defective. A 12 volt test lamp or volt meter may be used for testing for power or energized condition.

My 93 FXDWG won't crank. Thought it was the battery, replaced battery still don't have the juice to turn over. Just hear a click or 2. Any suggestions would be appreciated. thx, Bo

Check voltage at starter when start button is pushed, should be 12volts.If you have 12 volts the brushes in the starter are bad. If you don't have 12 volts it is probably the starter solenoid. You should have 12 volts on both sides of the solenoid when starter button is pushed.

Gentlemen, I have a 1979 580c backhoe, proud owner for 3 weeks now. But it won?t start. Here's what I've done so far. 1.checked the starting circuit, the neutral switch is good. 2.I have continuity...

It sounds like you have a bad starter. You can try bringing 12v direct to
the starter just to be sure(be sure it's in neutral) or use a volt meter at
the starter while somone turns the key. You have checked the wire's
and all appears to be ok, the only thing left that would draw the meter
into the red is the starter itself. I hope this helps.

Won't start.

That's possible, but if you have power at the starter solenoid to close the contacts then check to see if the 12 volts are going through it(probe the large wire on both sides of the solenoid for 12 volts) and on to the starter, if this is the case, check for 12 volts at the starter lug where the large power wire hooks to the starter, if you are getting at least 12 volts at the starter lug, I would say you have a failed starter motor. Good luck !

Need a stater diagram please

the starter bolts in. It's a standard Nippondenso type starter. What is your problem, it may not be the starter.

Since you've checked the battery and the voltage regulator, I'm going to make an assumption that the bike will not start. Well, let's check a few things first.

First, check for voltage at the large bolt on the starter. There should be 12 volts or more at this junction. If you follow this large black wire upwards, you'll find that it connects directly to the positive battery post. Make sure these connections are clean.

Now, look at the end of the starter just below that box on the right side of the bike right behind the rear exhaust pipe. You'll see a pentagon shaped (5-sided) plate. This is the end plate on the starter's solenoid. Right at the top of this plate is a plug with a single wire running to it, usually the wire is green in color. Unplug this wire and insert the positive probe of your volt meter. Negative probe to a good ground. Turn on the ignition switch and press the "start" button, you should show 12 volts or more on this wire when you press the button. If you show the 12 volts, the problem is in the starter.

If you do not get 12 volts here, your problem is somewhere else. Make sure the "Run/Stop" switch is in the "Run" position. There is a starter relay on the bike somewhere. Not sure where it is on that year model bike but you should be able to hear a faint "click" when you press the "start" button. If the bike has an "electrics box" it may be located there or it could be on the front side of the rear fender.
