If your starter solenoid clicks when you push the starter button, the starter button is good. Try jumping the power from one solenoid post to the other. You can use a jumper cable clamp, a screw driver, or touch the two cables together, this sends power directly to the starter. If the starter works now , then you have a bad solenoid (burnt internal contact points). If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer or back of a screw driver and the starter works, then you need new starter brushes. There are no other parts (other than brushes) available for the starter from Yamaha. If the bearings are bad or the armature is shorted you will have to replace the starter as an assembly.

Yamaha xj650 maxim won't start, but left blinker won't stop flashing when I push the start/stop button actually ground a bare wire, don't have a button/switch yet, need to replace the throttle body.


Hi, Sarah before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

97 Saturn/ Battery goes dead every 3 months. You hear aclick,click sometimes andthen it will start.


the click is probably the fuel pump coming on and as far as the battery you may have a bad alternator

Battery timing issue..


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Power

You can adjust your computer to run more slowly, and use less power per minute, to maximize the amount of time that the battery will last, before it needs to be recharged.

2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse starts sometimes then wont and just makes a clicking sound, is my starter going out?


could be, unless your battery is dying. a nearly dead battery will make clicking noises while it is cranking. if you keep forcing it by turning the key from "run" to "crank" and it gets it to start it may be a dead spot on the starter.
