1. Yes, do you must have a battery using pull start.
2. The bike doesn't fire up using start button, but as soon as you try using the pull start it fires up, because the bike's electrical starter motor have a short circuit to the ground or the starter motor supply wire is on short circuit to the ground!
3. Check and repair if necessary the starter motor supply wire. If everything is in good condition then remove the electrical starter motor and repair it!

Holden Captiva. The battery appears to be flat as when I go to turn it over it just makes a clicking noise. Am I able to jump start the Captiva with my little Nissan pulsar?


Hi Leana a couple of things spring to mind, Yes it could be a matter of a flat battery.You haven't mentioned what year or if it's petrol or diesel.if it's petrol as long as the second car battery is good should be ok. If it's diesel it may struggle but only by trying will you know. However i would advise leads used should be fitted with a surge device to protect all on board computers (ECUs).Connect good battery negative lead to neg batt terminal & Positive lead to poss terminal, on poor battery positive lead to pos terminal on batt and negative lead to a good earth point on 'engine' Be very careful not to reverse any polarities or touch the two cables together. Depending on year of vehicle if series 2 diesel have come across starter motor main cable or alternator main cable or both where the securing nut has come loose damaging starter and loom and alternater wire. This also creates either a clicking noise and or a no start. advise Holden dealer repair.Good luck.

Starter spins correctly when I hook pos to neg and neg to pos


Sounds like someone has changed the starter recently and they have the negative cable from the battery hooked up to the starter solenoid. You need to have the positive cable hooked to the starter solenoid not the negative cable.

My 77 Chevy c30 has no power. Jumped started it and drove it home. I turned it off then tried to restart it. No power no lights. nothing. Battery is good. An u help will be appreciated.


If the battery is good you will need to follow flow. Test light is the easiest to use. First hook light to ground and touch pos terminal,lights good next touch pos battery cable end, lights good. Next follow pos cable to starter pos terminal,lights good. Next hook test light to bat pos teminal,touch neg terminal,lights good. Then touch engine block, lights good ground. Next move test light clamp back to ground/neg side and touch alt pos terminal,lights good.if all that tests good, if all good move inside and check for power at ign switch pos term if at any time you dont find power you have wiring issue that needs to be addressed. Let me know what you find. Russ

I've already replaced the starter, battery, terminal posts, and alternator. It will start of a jump after charging for about ten minutes but will not start when switching the batteries out. It just do


Could be poor battery connections or bad (corroded) cables. Put a voltmeter on the battery: ideal would be over 12.6 volts, if less than 12.2 volts, recharge battery.

If you have a voltmeter, google "voltage drop test" to see how to check for high resistance to current flow. Check the positive battery cable from battery to the starter. It may help you find a poor connection.

Possibly just the fuse. But if you say the jumpers WERE positive to positive and neg to neg it shouldnt have been a problem but maybe the pos clamp touched the body. That would have cooked the battery. First check the fuse, if thats ok then connect your neg jumper lead to the chassis of mower to neg of truck and the pos to pos of truck and hold the other end to the large terminal on starter motor.This will bypass everything and only test starter. Engine will spin over if starter motor ok. There will be a strong spark when touching terminal so watch for fire hazard.

Gauge showing low output alt only 1yr old wondering if it could be regulator or batt or wiring


if you have access to a digital multimeter, connect the meter (set to volts) across positive and neg. terminal of the battery, should read roughly 12.6 volts, close to 10 volts, battery may be going out, also test the alt output, disconnect neg term and place negative lead to battery neg post and positive lead to neg battery cable (make sure meter is set to amps) should read near the rating, if both those, then you'd want to do a resistance test, (set meter to Ohms) disconnect battery and connect meter neg to either pos cable terminal or where the pos cable connects to the alt and connect positive lead to opposite of neg, should read next to 0, the check resistance of the ground by connecting meter between batt neg cable and body of alt.

First thing every morn. I have to jump it off at the starter. won't work at battery. after 1st start, it will start fine all day. Battery checks out fine. It's like the power does not get to the starter...


It sounds like possible bad batt cable or connection as it takes a bit more batt power when engine is cold to crank engine. if you have a volt meter, you can check this. set to volts dc and put one lead on batt neg. post and one on engine block, crank engine, in theroy you should not see any voltage but if you do, that is whats lost in neg cable, in my exp. you will see about .5 volts if you see too much more than that, i would be looking at cable. you can do same thing on pos. side but keep in mind if you go from batt pos. to large stater pos. at stater and you have a ext. sol. like ford likes to use that your loss could be in the sol. contact as well. And under cranking mode your batt should drop to no less that 9.6 volts under load and thats tested at batt post.

Check for spark using a new spark plug and clean the carburetor / air filter.

Won't stert without a PUSH START


check there is voltage going to the starter motor solidnoid from the ignition swithch when the key is turned.also check continuity from earth from battery to engine. If all fails try getting jumps leads and put one from battery neg to to engine and the other from battery pos to pos connection of starter motor. that should turn engine over. This should help you figer out whats going on. but be carefull.

Have new proper batt.Have new starter celenoid,new


Remove spark plug and attempt to crank. If it turns faster (without compression) it may be valve adjustment. If it still turns over slowly with plug out check battery ground for tightness to mower body. If the ground is good check the starter by removing battery and atttaching jumper cables to pos and neg battery terminals first, then the pos jumper to starter terminal (where red wire attaches). Then touch the neg jumper to a good engine ground (I use shroud bolt). Be careful as this last connection will cause some arcing. If it still cranks slowly with the plug out, it is probably the starter.
