Pull the spark plugs then go get a fresh set. The bike is probably flooding out. Clean the air filter then spray starting fluid into the filter. Be sure there is gas in the tank and the fuel valve is open.

"Jumpt"started 95 Volvo sedan 850 after head lights were left on but after we disconnected battery to look further into car, have all dash lights but car will not start at all.What could it be?

#1. Check the secondary cable which runs to your starter.
#2. Check Starter Relay (unplug, and shake it - sometimes to can hear broken stuff inside of them)
#3. Make sure your cables are tight, and your battery has a good charge. (was it trickle charged ? jumping and then turning the car off will not be enough charge for the battery ; you must charge to 100%)
#4. Check all grounds.

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2 Battery died and Replaced also Starter still no start just loud click from new starter and does not turn over engine but can be push started by pop clutch and runs fine

Assuming you replaced the solenoid with the starter, it may be the relay. If the relay is not making a good connection, it might have trouble throwing the solenoid. The relay should be in the relay box under the hood. You can break the relay open and watch it work while someone turns the key to verify the problem.

My TRX has been layed up for 8 years. When hitting the start button, all that happens is series of clicks coming from the starter solenoid. The starter does not turn. Can you help. David Edwards

Hi David, I've heard this noise when my TRX has run out of gas on a couple of occasions. After refilling it and then pressing the starter 5 or 6 times with the gas tap on PRIME it has started. Leave about 15 seconds between each try on the starter button.

I would say you probably have a problem with one or more carbs. The carbs should be cleaned and vacuum balanced. Make sure you don't have a vacuum leak to start with.
