I just put one on my boat today and had no problem with either the test button or running the motor while the boat is on the trailer. Your message said the "battery" is new. Did you get a 24 volt motor by mistake? If so, it won't run on a single battery.

Same problem with my lumina not starting changed starter and battery and still not starting


Tell me exactly what happens, does the engine crank over or not? If it does crank do you have fuel pressure? Have you run fault code tests?

You have a Buick, what is model year?
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. At the starter motor, usually two voltage circuits, one is hot all the time, comes from battery. The other goes hot with key in the crank position and probably wired through neutral switch, for automatic. The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility.
Is there a security system on this vehicle?

Truck will not start. Have power from battery. radio comes on. indicator panel lights up ok. NO crank when turning key


Have to make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections good. How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes?
If the starter motor won't crank, have to check starter wiring circuits. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter motor. One is battery voltage, hot all the time. The other circuit usually goes hot with the key in the crank position and may be wired through a relay and clutch or neutral switch, depending on the tranny. The ground for the starter motor is usually through the engine block. Any testing, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility when working on a vehicle.

It was running fine, and then we heard a clicking sound and it just quit, now it will not start


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. You can't do any testing if battery is down. Forget the jumping. Also, check your charging system.
Does starter motor crank? If not, check wiring circuits for the starter motor. Any testing at the starter, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set, Safety is your responsibility.
If you have a digital multimeter, you can do some testing. If the battery is down, put a charger on it.
Sometimes if battery voltage is lost, it can effect your security system. I haven't looked to see if it will effect your starter motor?

I know you said it isn't the battery, forgive me, be sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Use a test lite and follow battery voltage. Battery ground is important also.
The battery voltage may lead to junction block--fusible links--fuse box?
At the fuse-box, pick any component that has a fuse, check fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. Some fuses are hot all the time, some go hot with key on, test both ways.
If the starter motor won't crank, check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and is probably wired through the clutch or neutral switch then through the starter relay, where applicable, to the starter motor. The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block, so, battery negative connection is important.
Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility. You don't want the vehicle to move during testing.

Have no power out of the trailer plug 4or 7 prong,where should i look for the trouble?


Not sure which part you mean no power.

For the New Body style 2004 ( not a Heritage or Lightning model )

If both Stop / Turn pins & the parking lamps, might want to check the ground pin to make sure it is good ( or what you are using for ground on the test light / meter ).

The trailer tow parking lamp circuit is fuse #10 to the parking lamp relay

The stop / turn circuits also have fuses on each one, Fuse #36 & Fuse # 42 ( R & L ).

The 7 pin has fuses for the battery charge pin ( hot in run position ) and the reverse circuit ( hot in run & when in reverse ), Reverse is also fuse # 10 to the trailer tow reversing lamp relay & the battery charge pin is fuse # 106 to the trailer tow battery charge relay.

Could be all the fuses are blown, or what you are using for ground on the meter / test light is not a good ground.

Why isn't my trailer connector charging the RV battery? I placed a fuse in slot 106, but it still doesn't appear to be working at the factory installed pigtail.


Might want to bench test the trailer tow battery charge relay.

You can also jumper this with a wire in the relay socket, to test the wiring to the trailer tow adapter. This is relay R05

Pride sonic scooter won't turn on. the battery is charged and the motor is functional. Appears to be an electrical switch. any suggestions?


How do you know that the motor is functional? Have you load tested the batteries. If the batteries are bad usually they will still take a surface charge and appear to be fully charged.
