I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Unplug the two small wires going to the starter solenoid and push the starter button . With a voltage meter on the wires from the harness you should have continuity.Reconnect the wires. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid, the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter , the starter parts are probably not available from the manufacturer.

    When you hit the starter button, if you hear click under the gas tank check the connection under the clutch. Fairly common issue that the connection is dirty.

TO ALL VN1500 OWNERS....This once happen to me,
I went to the garage to start the bike "Nothing ""The first thing is the lights are bright but no turning over,Next you think the solenoid is kaput but the answer was very simple and the fix takes 30 seconds..
Do not take the bike to bits looking for other problems and look at the clutch leaver and you will see some wires going into a plastic shroud going into the switch in the clutch leaver, Make sure this has not popped out if its connection as it some times may do after a few years due to constant turning on the handlebars,
When this is not connected you will have a bike that will not fire up but comes alive and you will hear a clicking noise but this is from the engine carb area and every function of the bike will work but it will not turn over, Worth looking at and saves sixteen quid for a starter unit you never needed.

I have a 1999 vulcan nomad and stopped and turned it off and when i went to crank it would do nothing. I have checked everything and even replaced the magnetic switch (starter selonoid) and still...


Have you checked if the power is reaching the starter ?
And the earth lead from yhe motor to the frame for corrosion or looseness ?
If the power is getting to the starter when you press the button and the leads are all clean then the next thing to check would be for a dead field on the sarter motor. Remove the starter and turn the armature around a bit then see if it works. this can also be the case if the brushes are worn.
Whether you can get the motor to work or not if you are satisfied that power is present at the stater motor when you activate the starter button, then the starter motor needs a service or swap. Do not trust it if you get it to spin after turning it as it will let you down at the worst possible time according to Murphy.

My 2001 vulcan 1500 will not start. the indicator lights work but when i try to start it all lights go out for a second then come back on again. battery shows fully charged on trickle charger.


Measure the voltage on the starter side of the solenoid with the kill switch ON and the key ON and the starter switch PRESSED - trans in N. IF it is not 12 volts, it may be faulty.

2003 VULCAN NOMAD 1500 WILL NOT START AND STATER DOES NOT ENGAGE AND LIGHTS GOES DEAD WHEN TURING KEY TO START POSITION


If you take a voltage reading at the battery when you are pushing the starter button, my guess is you will have 11-12vdc until you push the button and it will drop off. It sounds like your battery doesn't have enough current (cranking amps) to engage the starter. That is why the headlight will work until you try to start the bike and then the light goes out. It is pretty common for motorcycle batteries to go bad every 2-3 years. How old is the battery?
