SOURCE: just bought used bike, bought new motor hooked it all up, even new ecm's.test light shows power from all sources motor turns just wont start

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, check for the presence or absence of spark at the plug(s). If none, check if there is a +12 on one terminal of the ignition coil and a pulsating ACV on the other. Additionally, verify that the neutral light is lit. Try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the side stand folded up.

Postback results of tests.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: can not get motor to turn over put new starter on

Does anything else electrical work? The headlights in particular should come on. If nothing works, check the charge on the battery, then it's connections including the woven ground cable between the truck frame and engine. The solenoid should have the positive battery connection and a smaller wire connection to the input terminal. A smaller yet wire that goes to the small terminal, and a large cable from the output terminal to the starter motor terminal. Using a short piece of wire to short the small terminal of the solenoid to the large terminal that has the battery connection should cause the starter to run (the engine won't start because the key is off). Hope this helps get you running!

common causes for back firing, low fuel pressure, or restricted injectors, breakdown of secondary ignition coil, internal ignition coil arching, or a dead spot in throttle position sensor.

Hi mogan749, jump from the battery to the starter and see if it cranks. I suspect a bad battery or bad connections, I would try this first. Hope this helps. If not please re post.

SOURCE: my plow will not go

Sounds like battery cable problems. The motor for the pump comes on anytime you pust a button and the pump makes pressure that goes thoegh a soliniod valve that you selected with the switch. The motor itself might be bad or the wire connected to it is'nt making, of course the salt and ther things plowed wreack havac witht he wire connections and get right into the motor. Useing a test light and a helper being careful if the plow were to move that you can get out of the way of it's motion. there's a power wire on the motor touch the test light to the connection and see if hitting the switch lights the light. This connection right at the motor is most likly and then ther connection at the battery. The control gets it's power from key on power but the motor gets it's power from the battery though the soliods relay. The power is getting to the motors connection you might knock on the motor with the power on. It's safer to do this with a jumper cable the motor should run if touched with a hot cable. remember be out of harms way as the plow can move and get you. Cleaning all the connections of the big battery cables will likly fix it if the motors good and the soioids are clicking and their wires are connected cleanly.

I have a 50hp Johnson motor. I am unable to raise the motor with the electric switch, ( it does work letting the motor down) my question is, Is there a way to lift the motor manually?

Yes there is a way to do it manually. You will have to bridge the post on the selinoid using a screwdriver. Touch the 2 post on the selinoid with a screwdriver. Or replace the selinoid to fix it correctly.

I'm having issues starting my 2003 Yamaha roadstar 1600. I push the start button and it only clicks...I replaced the selinoid and it only clicks. What do I do?

Hi Scott if its clicking its working. Try putting power to the starter direct. If that don't work you need a starter motor. Regards Jim...

Where does the blue an white stripe wire that goes to the starter selinoid get power

The starter solenoid should have two thick wires, one to the battery live and the other to the starter motor,there will then be one or two more smaller ones if there is one it goes to the start switch on the handlebars if there is two one is an earth and the other is the start switch wire.

For about 2 weeks my car has been hard to start now it wont start it acts like the starter is not engaging to turn motor over when you try to start it it makes a whinning spinning noise we took starter off...

sounds like the battery wire to the starter is possibly the culprit, it may have a bad spot in it not allowing enough voltage to the starter. also depending on the brand solenoid you purchased it is possible to get a bad one. i recommend borg warner electrical products. i hope this helps.

Starter continues to run, after starting and even when keys are removed


Can be 2 thingfs, firstly the solinoid sounds like it is shot so most likely you will have to replace it, this is just one part of the starter motor and can often be reconditioned to save you a few $$$, I would however try and get to the starter ensure no wires are arking out on anything and that the connections to the starter are good, spray with wd-40 and hit it a few times with a hammer, if the problem persists after this then it will need a new selinoid.

th other possibility is the ignituion switch where you put the key in, internally then can jam up thus not releasing the power that is sent to the starter motor, again wd-40 sprayed into the ignition barrel would normally free this up. I would certainly try these before spending any money.

Hope this helps

I have an ASKO D3251 that is not draining. We

You will need to remove the bottom panel of the unit below the door that exposess the motor and the electrical along with water hook up. Now you will nee to manually go through the cylces (or let the machine cycle) to rinse. Once in the rinse cycle you should have heard the selinoid activate to drain the water. This selinoid click and pulls an arm down when in drain mode if you are looking under the unit you will either hear it or see this activate. If not then the selinoid is out, if you hear it activat then you need to look at the back of the motor to see if the motor itself is turning. You should be able to see the fins on the back of the motor turn once it goes into drain cycle. If you do not see the motor fins turning (you have to look through the vent slots located on the back of the motor) you acan take a small slotted head screwdriver and with the power off, you can insert this screwdriver into the vent holes in the back of the motor to spin (or move) the motor fins. If they do not move freely then the motor itself is froze up in that case a new one is needed. If the spin then try your drain cycle again since you may have unfroze the drain motor.

Good luck hope this helped

I would seriously have a cat put back on you need that back pressure and have the O2 sensors replaced. Sounds like it may be time for a major tune up
