Have you checked to see if the battery is charged?

If it's sufficiently charged, is the fuse(s) running from there all intact and working? (check with a meter, sometimes they don't "look" like they're bad..)

If you have just a little charge, but not enough you'd hear the starter at least trying to engage, even if it can't turn it over.

If you don't have radio, lights, nothing, then I'd be looking at the battery and the fuses closely. You may want to actually check the book on what fuses you should find, because some of them are not obvious, or all in the same place, like in a car. I've found them tucked away behind panels or behind the battery and the only reason I found them was I knew it was there and kept looking until I did.

If you leave your scooter hooked up in the cold weather but don't start it, or don't hook a battery-tender to it, then it can suffer for it and have reduced capacity over time. I used to ride mine most of the year so I started it regularly, even in the winter (Kentucky), but I have had friends who lose batteries because they just store them, cables hooked or not, and leave them for months at a time.

Heat and sitting idle on a shelf or in the bike can take their toll on the battery. If you actually show a charge on the battery on a meter it still may not have the "power" to turn the bike over. In that case I'd use a "load meter" which puts a load on the battery while it measures that performance and I can see if it'll hold up or not. But again, in this case you're not getting much coming on that you can see or hear, so I'd still look at the battery and the fuses.

Many auto parts stores will load check that battery for you for free if you bring it in to them.

Good Luck!!!

Why won't my DeWalt DC011 radio charger make sound? It will turn on and display the radio stations and charge the batteries, but there is no sound. The fuses are good, the batteries are good.

Either the output stage of the radio amplifier are faulty or the speaker(s) are open circuited. Unfortunately there is no easy fix without a dismantling of the unit and testing. Sorry

If the sound is continuous, like a long tone humming, it is possible you are on a channel which is not programmed. Try changing your channel knob to a different channel and see if the sound changes.

If the sound is not continous, and only happens upon pressing a button, we are not certain what you are experiencing without seeing the radio first hand.

If it were the battery you would get a low battery beep and then the radio would shut itself down. This can happen from a bad battery or a low battery. If this were the situation, you should check your charger and be certain the light comes on and stays on when the radio is placed on the charger. (Note: your radio should always be turned off when on the charger.) A quick test would be to swap the battery with a known good radio and see if you have the same problem. If so, you know it is not a battery or charging problem.

If none of these items help, send or bring the radio to a Motorola repair shop for a quick analysis.

Best regards.

Radio in my 2002 pt cruiser does not turn on but makes a clicking sound. If I reset battery radio will work for a while then turn off again. radio will continue to click

Do you have any problems with your battery? I would have it tested. Also, I would have your alternator tested too. Have you had any problem with your lights being dim? Just take a look at your battery. If it is one with the cells accessible, use distilled water to top off the cells. If it is self contained, have it tested. This sounds like a bad battery issue. Hope this helps.

Constant noise, no squelch, not receiving signal

What you are describing is sometimes called motorboating, and typically indicates the radio needs repair. Without hearing the sound we cannot be certain of your radio's issue. There is also a slight chance you have a battery problem (as in a bad or defective battery). Try a known-good battery on the radio and see if the problem goes away. You might consider contacting the seller to see if they will assist you.

Best regards.

The radio on my phone wont' turn on

If the radio won't turn on it generally means it is not within coverage or the phone's account is deactivated. Take the battery out and leave out for 2 minutes. Put the battery back in and the radio should come back on. If it does not then go through the menu to bring the radio back online.

You can also try this:

These phones are also known to have issues if the sound is turned on for some reason, try turning the sound off and back on.

My clock AJ 3010 clock radio gives off an electronic sound every 10 to 20 minutes. It's like a warning sound you get from a smoke alarm when a battery is running low. I've tried replacing the batteries but...

If you want to turn off all system beeps (like the ones that go through your computers' internal speaker ):

  1. Go to Start-->Run-->Type Regedit.
  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound
  3. Edit the key Beep and give it a value of No
This will help you to turn off system beeps.
