SOURCE: Starter flywheel is not engaging motor

If you blew a fuse you could have a grounded wire someplace. Check the wiring on the solinoid, on the battery, on the lights and anyplace there could have been a bear spot rubbed. If the flywheel does not engage check the flywheel gear on the end of the started to see if it is chewed and worn. These can be replaced easily,

SOURCE: I have an RZT50 Cub Cadet Mower that only starts with jump

it sounds like the starter motor is pulling to many amps for the battery to cope with. if its a 12v system it should not pull the battery down to less than 8.5 volts on cranking if it does the starter-motor is defective you can check this with a volt meeter across the battery terminals and see what it read as you crank the engine. hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a countax K18

there is a coil under the flywheel that is supposed to charge the battery...if you look at the engine there should be a wire coming from under the flywheel that is supposed to go to either a diode or a regulator and then to the can put a meter on this lead and one on the engine ground to see if it is putting out may need to put the meter on AC VOLTS as the voltage may be AC...if there is a regulator(it looks like a heatsink module,square with fins on it..).this may be defective. The ac coming out of the stator(this is the tech term for the alternator) is present..(it will vary with eng speed)..then the regulator is probably bad

Hi, My 2006 ford focus wouldn't start this morning. After starting it first time with jump leads I drove it for 20 minutes before stopping for 1 minute. When I tried to start it again I got nothing but a...

The clicking sound is the starter motor trying to engage, but does not engage because of low electrical current. Knowing that you started your motor with jump leads this morning indicates that your car's battery needs charging/replacement.
Hope this helps.

How do I get truck started after its been sitting for months

Charge up the battery with a battery charger or jump start the truck with a good battery. Connect the jumper leads from the good battery to the battery on the truck.
Connect the red lead from the + terminal on the good battery to the + (plus) terminal on the truck.
Connect the black lead from the - terminal on the good battery to the - (minus) terminal on the truck.
The good battery will supply power to the starter motor.
Then you can turn the key to start the truck.

I have a homelite 720 generator but cant fingd the instruction manual and i need to know if the charger leads only charge a battery or can be used as jump leads i know this might sound stupid but i wo

I can't find any reference to a Homelite model 720 generator but most battery charging systems do not supply enough amps to run a car starter. Battery chargers usually work in the two (trickle) to ten amp range. Car starters need way more amps to have enough power to turn an engine over, depending on the size and number of cylinders in the motor. Some chargers have a switch with a 60 amp 'start' position to help the battery turn the motor over, but without that there is little chance the charger side of your generator will supply enough amps to help your battery.

Car just clicks when tryingto start battery is good. Will not jump with another car

the battery term on the = or+ on battery lead OR where the Earth lead on battery is fitted ORthe feed (+)on starter motor connection or the solinoid on starter,or starter jamed or engine siezed.
SO first jump start as +on battery on both cars and them (black lead)to a good earth on engine not on to battery on your engine,try to start if not fot red lead to starter motor feed and it should spin if not then replace the starter but first just turn engine over slightly by bottom pully,if it dosent turn then engine is no good.

I put in a new battery, but the starter motor won't turn over. When try to start it everything dims. Do I need a new starter motor?

try this ? connect a jump lead to the earth/negative terminal on the battery then connect the other end of lead direct to a sutable eart point on the engine try engine mount ? then having done this try starting ? if starter work then your problem is either the batteries earth lead is fault /loose on engine or batt terminal ? make checks on all battery leads connections to starter and earth on engine ?this is reason lights go dim due to poor earth assume battery is full charged ?

2002 Chevy Suburban...Power/Battery?

Make sure battery is fully charged, try jump starting it, if it starts, and you can get a volt meter, put the test leads on the battery terminals, red positive black negative, have the dial on the meter at 12volts DC.
With the motor running, the meter should read between 14 and 15 volts, below that, the alternator isn't charging and needs replacing.
If it still clicks with a jump, the starter solenoid is bad and needs replacing. The solenoid is on top of the starter, which has to be removed to fix it.

Honda CB 250 1998-will not start, just clicking, battery is ok

Hi, Your problem lies with the starter solenoid, although you maybe using a fully charged battery to jump it, it appears to be sticking or possibly faulty due to trying to start with poor battery.
The starter solenoid is usually located on or near the Battery compartment, it is cylindrical and has two heavy wires attached to it 1 goes to the starter motor the other to the battery. If you are carefull you can by pass the solenoid by touching the heavy wire going to the starter motor with the jumper lead. Make sure the jump battery is connected and both the NEGATIVE leads are well secure. Put the NEGATIVE lead from jump cable direct to a engine mount bolt or engine itself Not the battery.
There you are FixYa'd
