Hi, Jonti16 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check 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 if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables shorting or leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

SOURCE: Husaberg (FE 501-03)Stator problem

I have never heard of a stator preventing a motorcycle from starting. You need a professional, local, second opinion before you plunk down any bucks.

Unless that is, are you calling a magneto a stator? Does your motorcycle have a battery? If it has a battery, you probably do not have a magneto.

SOURCE: Turn Signals Won't Work

Using volt meter to verify polarity for each wire from your dads bike to yours,could help.Also try removing the bulb from each socket try them one side at a time (left bulbs then rite bulbs), not sure about them working when off but sounds like power coming from wrong source(battery),should be on the ignition circuit. compare to your fathers bike!

I have a 1998 Chevy Malibu, and the entire right tail light assembly is out. Is this likely to be a fuse issue, or a wiring issue?


Pull the connector from the back , test signals going into the tail light assembly , if good you need a new tail light assembly . No it's not a fuse issue . The brake light's ,turn signals , park lamps all have thier own power supply - different fuse's . Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits with a volt meter ? How to use a wiring diagram so you know what your testing ? Here is a web site for free wiring diagrams http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine ! Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on tail lamps . Click the search button then the blue link. Check the ground circuit (pin E ) grounds get corroded .

Tail lights and dash lights dont work


The common power source for the tail lights and instrument cluster is the 20A TAIL LPS fuse(s) in the fuse block. BUT, in the case of the instrument cluster, there are actually two fuses with the same identification. Replacement of the fuse with the ORG wire connected should restore the tail lights when you set the turn/hazard/headlight switch to PARK and may restore the instrument cluster lamps. If not, replacement of the second fuse with the two YEL wires connected should solve the problem

Tracing bad earth on tail light on a fj1200


Hi, David tail light issues are relatively easy to diagnose and repair always check the tail light fuse first and make sure you have power on both sides of the fuse holder and the usual suspects are:
1. Tail light bulb element is broken.
2. Tail light bulb soldered contacts are extremely worn down.
3. Tail light bulb socket corroded.
4. Tail light bulb socket has no power and or ground.
5. Tail light wiring harness damaged from the rear tire.
6. Tail light rear fender wiring harness connector faulty due to corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.

Tail lights shorting out and need to find a way to figure out where the problem is


There must be a short perhaps caused by the wiring to anything on that circuit touching earth. Only a good inspection of the wiring for the tail lights and the instruments will find it and concentrating on the areas where th wiring bends like around the steering head might find it faster.-------- Also check the tail light fuse, if its causing the short.Remove the fuse and clean it and re- fit it. Fuse is in the box under the left ram air cover. Should be labeled "Signals" on the diagram on the fuse box cover, in most of the Yamaha motor cycles.You will have to test for voltage when brake is applied.If the tail light shows voltage,there is power.If no voltage, then there is short.The tail light bulb, at the back of bulb, there will be a connector from where, you will have to follow the wire till the front wiring harness.If there is short, the wires will show voltage, even without depressing brake and turning the bike ON.The shorted wires must be getting power directly from battery, as per that , you can re-wire the tail light.-------- You can run additional wire from tail light bulb socket to main wiring harness and see, if tail light works properly.If its works, that means old wiring is causing the short and wirings needs to be rebuild.But if tail light not working with new wiring too, then its ground issue, the connections are getting in contact and causing the short.-------- As per that you can start troubleshooting.---------- this should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Wich fuse is the one for the tag lights in a 1998 ford expedition


The tag lights run off the same circuit as the tail lights, if you have tail lights, and the only light out is the tag light, it's the bulb.
If no tail lights also, check the fuse for the tail lights.

Tail lights dont work


Oh boy, Chevy uses 3 important wires to make up their tail light harness. Brown is used for your parking lights and yellow and green are your signal and brake light wires, yellow one side, green the other. You have some seriously crossed wires. Start with tracing the lic plate lite since that works. Make sure it leads into your main parking lights and the ground wires from these tail lites aren't cut. The lic place lite will work with just power because the body of the lite is grounded with the bumper. Then make sure that there is power to the signal wires. You can do this with a test light and the signal light switched on. You don't need anyone to step on the brakes since it's the same signal, only interepted. Most importantly, Remove the tail lites and check grounds!! Good luck

How to wirw a harnes for trailer lights on my astro van


get a test light, 12v
remove the tail light from one side.
identify each wire by turning each light on . and connecting the test light to see wich one becomes active
remember to connect your test light to a good earth
attache each cable one by one
the final indicator will be on the other side you will need to run a single wire accross to that side (unless the wiring loom passes one side)
make sure you connect them properly and tape them to avoid problems later soldering is best.

99 mercury mystide had rear running light broken


If the driver's side tail light is working, it's not a fuse. Use a test light to check for power at the bulb holder. One terminal will be for tail light, the other for brake/turn light. If the is constant power for tail light, replace bulb. If no power, trace wiring from bulb holder to driver's side junction. Probable broken wire between the two tail lights.
