Mine did this.it was a faulty kill switch.The ign switch on rockets causes similar problems,mainly cause the headlights are fed thru the ign switch eventually cooking it.This is a stupid design and can be resolved by fitting a headlight relay,which is a bit of a mission unless you know what you are doing.

No voltage to fuel pump 2002 saburban


vehicles have a safty device that kills the fuel pump in case of a roll-over accident so the fuel will not be poured on to the car and ignite. also, this fuel pump kill switch is used when you are going to remove the fuel pump to de-pressurize the fuel line by cranking the engine while the fuel pump safety switch is off. you can restore the power back to the fuel pump by resetting the fuel pump safety (kill) switch. some are located in the trunk, by the fender well, behind the carpet. some are located inside the kick panel where the front passenger sits. check your motor manuel for that vehicle or ask a parts person at the dealership for the location of the safety switch for the fuel pump.

Ignition switch


My bet is the ignition switch itself or the connector on the switch is bad.
You say things seem to work when you move the wires. This is classic indication that the switch is bad.
Let us know if this fixes the problem. Robert

The bike was in a crash and now it wont start.the bike will turn over just like it should but i dont hear the injectors coming on when i i turn the red switch to start. i know it could be alot of different...


Most bikes have a tip over switch....so when the bike is dropped....fuel pump and ignition are killed.
You should verify the switch has reset and will allow fuel and ignition.....some are mounted in the headlight area of the cowling.

Rocket 3 wont start. dials dead


Lift the tank. Underneath it you'll find a plastic connector block joining loads of wires together. Turn the ignition on and push this connector block together, or twist it around a bit. If the ignition sequence starts, it'll be because the wires in the connector block are corroded. Moving the block sometimes makes a temporary fix, but ultimately it'll happen again until the block or the wiring harness ideally, is replaced.
