    Thanx Redoil, the battery voltage was not sufficient. I changed the battery, put in a gel cell, and it fired right up. You are correct sir, you need 13.5 volts to start it. Thanks

2004 yamaha yz250f ran all weekend then the next day after riding it, it wouldn't start


Hi, Alex and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. 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.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

2005 electraglide won't start


Hi Anonymous, first when checking anything in the starter circuit you must make sure the battery connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends and has a 12.5 volt or better charge. It must not fall below 9 volts during the cranking procedure with a volt meter hooked up. If it does fall below 9 volts do a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary. Second replace the starter relay cheap $6 and make sure it's well grounded and getting 11.5 volts or better to activate. Third remove the back cover of the starter solenoid and de-arc/refurbish the contact plate and shoes making sure they are tight. If it still chatters replace the solenoid. Good luck and have nice day.

98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump click. Have pressure on fuel rail. Pulled #1 plug from head and plugged back into wire. Grounded plug and cranked. No spark. Changed wires 4 and 7 four days...


have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

Iguess she hosed the machine down ,water may have tracked and drained the battery ,and what you are hearing is the solenoid clicking....try another battery or jumper leads off the car you may be surprised .WHAT EVER YOU DO DONT,I SAID DONT.,RUN THE ENGINE WITH OUT THE BATTERY HOOKED OR YOU WILL BURN THE RECTIFIER OUT!!! AND IT WILL BE UNABLE TO CHARGE THE BATTERY, if the new battery doesn`t do the trick , you are going to haveto follow the clicking by ear until you find where the clicks are coming from let me know PLEASE I also can learn from your experience

Starter issues


try tapping on the starter motor/solenoid, it sounds like the solenoind is engaging(the clunk you hear) but the starter is not turning if the wire is getting hot it could be the starter is frozen up.
