Replace the solenoid contacts and machine the ring on the solenoids plunger to make it operate again
Or purchase a rebuilt starter instead

Riding mower won't turn over


Key switch may not be operating the solenoid for the starter. Getting off the seat engages a safety switch that kills the engine go you won't have to go chasing it if it were to slip into gear while you're standing next to it.

Won't crank


if battery is good, check to see if you have voltage at solenoid. if you do, turn key to start, that should throw the fire from other side of solenoid to starter. if there is no fire on the other side of solenoid when you turn the key,then your solenoid is most likely bad.

Start button not working


You sound like you know what you are doing. So far so good. By what you have determined, I would agree, or it is the wiring, or a current limiting device such as a fuse or link. I will see if I can find out where the relay is. In the mean time, a VOM will determine where the voltage is and is not. Typically, all the wires are color coded for tracing. See if you have 12volts to ground on both sides of the start switch, with the button pushed. See if you have 12 volts at the NSS and Stand Switch and find out what section of wire is failing if it is wiring. Eventually check each point down to the starter. The relay is $10 on ebay and has a 20Amp fuse built in. Check that. Looks like a soft rubber housing encapsulates it.

Bike wont start just quit working one day it doesnt try to turn over battery is good and holding voltage, have checked all fuses, starter relay, kill switch, ran up and down that bike with a volt meter...


Push the starter button if your hear the solenoid clicking the starter button is good. If there is no click from the solenoid you may need to clean or replace the starter button.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Jump across the two cable terminals, this should activate the starter.If the starter works now you have burnt contacts inside the solenoid. replace the solenoid. If the starter does not turn over, try again tapping on the starter with a plastic hammer if the starter works now you need starter brushes. If the starter will not turn over with direct power (bench test) and the brushes are good the armature is probably shorted. You will have to replace the starter as an assembly parts are not available to rebuild the starter.

My tractor is doing the exact same thing now. Did you ever get this problem figured out? I figure it to be a grounding problem, a short, or this "kill relay" problem.

You checked the solenoid? (ont post hot all the time - the other post only hot when you press the start switch) Check the low volt wires from battery to solenoid and solenoid to switch and from switch to ground.

I think you will find your trouble.

Please let me know what happens.

Assuming you checked fuses and followed wiring for any signs of a short or connector undone. You're getting power to starter, but solenoid sounds dead if you have to bypass it.
If the engine spins but won't fire, I SUSPECT ingition problems. Encountered rain...is seal around ignition unit gone bad? That would splain the plug not firing.
Do you smell gas (oops...petrol) when you crank the motor? fuel getting to cylinder?
Check for water in fuel system.

Suzuki 600 bandit won't start


It could be the starter, or it could also be the starter switch or more over have you first checked tht engine 'kill' switch? If its on 'off' (Kill) position the starter won't operate from the button!

Other way is to short circuit the starter throught the solenoid switch and see if it works.If it does work thn the switch (button) is faulty you may hve toreplace it or sometimes a good cleaning can revive it due to carbon deposits at the contact points.
Thirdly, I hope the battery is at its top performance too!
Hope this helps.
