Has your bike ever been stolen or are you aware of an attempt to steal it? It sounds like the ignition switch was severely tampered with. Does the switch look like somebody tried to hammer something into it? Are any wires going to the switch pulled out? It may be a failed attempt at hotwiring.

Right off the bat I think that you need to get a replacement ignition switch installed ASAP. You may want to consider having the police look at it if it looks like there was criminal activity of some sort on your bike.

If there is any good news, it is that if you can prove that somebody messed with your bike, your insurance should cover the repairs. Good luck.

It won't start: new battery, have lights, it just clicks when you turn the ignition switch


you mean it wont crank, it must crank to start.
1: bad starter system
2: weak battery even a new battery can be weak.
if you dont charge it first.
or if it starts ok then wont later, that means cars charge system failure.

can you jump start engine? with jumper cables.
that be a big clue there, proving starter works but battery was weak.
if the battery is fully charged.
you can hot wire the starter solenoid, (tiny terminal)
if car cranks now, the key start wire is failing.
A/T or M/T tranny? both use different path here....??????

if you cant hot wire it, then that means the stater is bad
the cables bad or the battery is not really connected.
or possible the engine is seized, can you hand turn over the engine at the front crank bolt (CW , facing rear, in neutral)
if not motor is seized.
some times even the starter and rig gear can be seized.
the starter can be bench tested. too.

My 1988 sportster 883 converted to a 1200 wont turn over new starter and new battery


Hi Dbull53, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

Installed brand new starter, battery fully charged, and still wont crank. It starts when I kick start it. 1988 nissan pathfinder. What else could be the problem? Relay switch? Or ignition? Please help


Check the ignition switch, and the wiring to the starter solenoid. Get someone to turn the key to the crank (start) position and check for voltage at the starter solinoid. Check the starter relay and all fuses.

Wont start


Your compression requires you need heavy guage cables to avoid the cables overheating. They couldnt take the volt/amp draw being placed on them. I would get heavier cables and leave your vehicle key off and let the donar vehicle sit idling for a good while charging up your batteries. Better yet is if you have a trickle charger that you can hook up and let charge up your batteries... After you get them charged you will need to find that cause of the batteries going dead. Check to see if something was left on, or have your mechanic hook up your batteries to a multimeter and look for a draw...

1988 460 motorhome starting problem


When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

Wont start


Basically there are these two issues tht would make the bike wont start..1 is tht if there is no fuel going into the combustion chamber and 2 if there is no sparks at the plugs.
Guess you will haveto check for both of these.
Good luck.

1988 toyota 4runners battery drains within 1 week. Cannot locate the short? Suggestions on how to measure the leakage and locate the short.


get a amp meter. remove battery cable, hook up meter inline. with key off measure drain. you prabably have a 1/2 amp or more draw. start pulling fuses till yo find the one that lowers it to almost nothing. If you find no draw then a battery can test good and still loose a charge over a time. Unhook the battery next time and if its dead unhooked you will know
