I agree with fabrice, if you can pull start, then try that after removing all 3 wires.
What model do you have? You also have to be sure the Handle lever is pulled in. This will also kill the spark and put a brake on the flywheel. If the cable slipped on the handle, you may not be releasing the brake and kill switch when the handle is squeezed.

The other kill switch is in the key Ignition, thus the 2 black wires and 1 red.

Hello,

Don't connect both blgack cables. 1 is the ignition cut-off. Probabilly, one of both cables has a yellow or white striping. This is then the ignition cut-off. You won't have ignition if this cable is grounded.
Check also the cable in the area where the handle folds for damages!

SOURCE: snapper mower electric start problem

On most mowers, that red wire will connect to the battery. that could be your problem.
you didn't say if it is a rider or not, or how old it is.
Touch the wire to positive post on the battery, with the key off, remove quickly if it sparks.
if no spark, hold it to the battery while turning the key.
if the engine tries to start, connect it permanently.

SOURCE: no spark

Hello:

>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File I Made for Checking the Coil/Ign Coil/Magnetron/Armature on Small Engines. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**To Check the Ign Coil; Remove the Spark Plug/s.
>>With a Good Plug, Wrap a Wire Around the Threads of the Plug and Attach the Other End of the Wire to the Engine Block. >>Remove the Blower Housing (metal engine cover). The Wire that is Connected to the Coil/Ign Module from the Shut Off Switch needs to be Removed (unplugged) from the Coil/Ign Module.
>>Now Check for Spark at the Plug.
>>If Spark, then the Shut Off Switch or the Wire is Bad.
>>If Still No Spark, then the Coil/Ign Module is Bad. If there are Safety Switches on this Unit and the Coil is Good; you Need to Check the Safety Switches for Being Bad and Check the Oil Guard Switch also.**
>>The Following is an Instruction File for the Safety Switch System. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>The Color Code of the Wires May be Different than those I Use as a Reference in the Instruction File.
>>**PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHECKING THE SAFETY SWITCHES IS JUST THAT!!! FOR CHECKING ONLY.
>>I NEVER Suggest a Mower be Operated with a Safety Device or Switch Disconnected or Bypassed.
>>**Now. On Some Model Mowers you can Simply Unplug the Safety Switch from the Harness. On Other Models you have to Place a Jumper Wire Between the Harness Terminals (on the 4 Post Switch (Clutch/Brake) Jumper from Same Color Wire (Example: White to White) First and then Check for Fire, Now Include the Black to Black Wires if No Fire. Check the Clutch/Brake and the Blade/PTO Safety Switches First. Then Check the Oil Guard Switch (if Applicable). Check the Seat Safety Last. Usually the Seat Safety is Not in the System for Starting the Engine. Just to Ensure Someone is in the Seat when Engaging the Transaxle and/or Blades. Use a Paper Clip or a Short Wire to Make a Jumper.**
>>Use a Multimeter and Check the Continuity of the Switch. The Meter should Show when the Contacts are Closed and Open. The Meter will Swing All the Way Over when the Switch Contacts are Closed and Swing Back to the Rest Point when the Switch Contacts are Open.
What is Happening is you are Opening the Carburetor Solenoid when the Harness is Connected and Allowing Just enough Gas to Flow into the Engine and teh Plugs are Not Firing. When you Disconnect the Harness, the Engine Fires because the Safety Swiches cannot Ground Out the Coil with the Coil Shut Off Wire Disconnected (due to the Harness being Disconnected) and Burns the Gas that Entered the Engine when the Carburetor Solenoid was Open.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton wiring, can it handle an electric clutch?

You might have a capacitor in line with the clutch motor that requires feed from the engine to allow the clutch to engage. I think the red lead is charging current to the battery plus post. Get yourself a 270962 repair manual and it will show you how to wire these things.

SOURCE: john deere f525 mower, wont start, battery good,

The front mount mower has a safety switch on the park brake linkage and the seat belt linkage as well as on under the seat which is for the PTO,The one under the seat on the linkage just behind the battery is a culprit that needs adjusting to get the PTO to engage but it sounds like you need to deal with the seat switch circuit or replace the seat switch.

SOURCE: i went down to the

I do not know about the wires for your switch, but you have a big problem with overcurrent in your switch if the output of your ignition switch goes straight to the starter. This is a fire hazard if you have done this. The ignition switch should send power to the starting solinoid. The starting solinoid is an electrically operated switch that is designed to handle the current loads with heavier duty electrical components. Be safe.

Misubishi galant 2001 no spark wont start


Hi Tammy, does you vehicle have any lights lit on the Dash, check engine light etc... You need to see if you have battery + voltage at the coils , an to see if the PCM is turning them on an off ! PCM - is the engine control module . An see if there is an input signal from the crankshaft position sensor . It would also be good to hook-up a scan tool to see if it can communicate with the PCM . Mite have a shorted 5volt reference circuit . Do you have 2.4 L 4 cylinder or 3.0L V-6 ? IF you have the 2.4 L 4 cylinder you need to Check for B+ on the Black/White wire at pin 4 in the connector at the ignition failure sensor with the key on. Jumper the Black/White wire at pin 4 to the wire at pin 3 at the ignition failure sensor connector. If spark is present now, replace the ignition failure sensor. Unplug the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor connector. Check for 5 volts on the Green/Red wire. Reconnect the CKP sensor connector. Check the Black wire for a good ground. Check for B+ on the Red wire. If the Green/Red wire goes higher when connected to the sensor and cranking the engine, the CKP sensor is faulty. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Car cranks but will not start


This could go several ways #1 engine mechanical check cranking compression should have 125 psi or greater in all cylinders if low but even squirt oil (1/2 oz.) in 1 cylinder and retest goes higher then rings sealing has been lost. if uneven check timing belt for jumped or misalignment. #2 electrical does it have electrical spark to plugs crank engine with a spark plug connected to spark plug wire laying plug on engine can you see spark? No test ignition coil wires with a logic probe both terminals will be red with key on one will flash red/green when engine cranking does not the primary ignition needs repair Ignition module? or pick-up coil/ crank sensor. #3 fuel system pressure and injection pulse. injection pulse can be tested with logic probe DONOT USE A TEST LIGHT YOU CAN RUIN THE ECU .

My battery sparks when i get a jump


DANGER CLOSE !!! Call of duty....
stop , backup, and do nothing, spark + hydrogen gas = BOOM.
now say what you were doing, my guess, JUMPER CABLE USAGE.
did you read the book on how to use cables.
No, this is not random chance... at all..
1 cars not touching,,,,, (bumpers kissing no)
2 Red Plus lug to Plus lug , or blow electronics to H3LL!! $$$$$$$$$$
3: on dead car connect battery minus lug (black) to jumper cable clip.
4: connect the jumper (last black) wire to the good cars, metal.
find strong metal connection ,not battery. (it can and will spark)
this prevents the BOOM acid in face deal.
5: start good car
6: wait 1 or 2 min, to allow dead battery to wake up a bit.
7: now crank dead car.

car starts
i then off the metal jumper end first, then other minus
then either and both PLUS clips.

the spark is due to one battery charging the other, normal
the trick is to make said spark in a safe place far from any batteries.

Hooking up a 36 volt charger to three 12 volt batteries in series


first of all do you have 3 or 4 batteries your cranking battery is not to be wired into this 36 volt if you have 4 batteries you have 3 for trolling motor and 1 cranking battery look on your charger see if the banks or numbered 1 2 3 4 .... you got to find what battery is # 1 depends on how they hooked in series if you hook charger on wrong battery most the time a red light comes on telling you wrong battery move wires till green lights come on all batteries.# 4 goes to cranking battery if you only have 3 batteries you don't have 36 volts you have 24 volts and a cranking battery if so # 3 goes to cranking battery

I need to know how to wire the batteries together on my shoprider jimmie chair so they will charge


If the charger is 24 volts and you have 2 12 volt batteries they have to equal 24 volts , so wire the batteries terminals red to black and connect the charger to the other terminals red to red and black to black.

The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?


If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

White is usually always power FROM the S (Starter) terminal of the Key switch to the clutch pedal switch then on to the start solenoid. For briggs and stratton key switch terminal 4 is used for starter power. The model number you passed is for the engine only.

Without your riding mower model number I can not even begin to guess for sure. If you can locate the mower model number I will look it if and see what I can find.


Tri-circuit Diode Wire

Green Connector

with 2 diodes leading to 1 Red Wire and

1 White Wire

Red Wire = 2-5 Amp DC unregulated for

battery charge
White Wire = 2-5 Amp DC negative for lights


This is the usual wiring off of the QUAD regulator.

Yellow Connector 2 Yellow Wires

White Connector

Black Wire = 8 Amp DC unregulated for lights

Red Wire = 8 Amp DC regulated for battery

Small magnets Quad Circuit
20 Volts AC @ stator

I really need an explantion of where your trying to connect to and from. I am thinking your connecting from the engine alternator. IF you replaced the alternator... depending on which alternator you purchased there is a modification that has to be done to wiring harness of the alternator to the regulator.

I was using my dell latitude d510 just fine the other day the only thing that was wrong is the battery wont charge so it always had to be plugged in. well from using the charger so much it finally stop...


The problem could be with the port the cord connects too. It could also be with the battery. If you take the battery out, and you still can't run on AC power, you need to replace the port. Take it to a computer/hardware shop and have it done.

1990 k75 ok so my battery was dead so i try to jusmp start it wit a car charger and not the bike wants to turn over on its own please help

first lift the fule tank to get to the relays under it in a black box,,,
take the lid of the relay box and look inside it,,,you will see a long black relay that is bolted down with a 10mm bolt and with two battery leads going to it near the seat end of the box,,,give this relay a jentel tapping with a screw driver,,,this relay is the starter relay and,,,,(its stuck in!) you have "welded the contacts together in it!" if it dont let go then its a new relay,,,and thats pricy!!!! £70???+!!!
thats what happens if you try to jump start a bmw!!!! with to fuw amps to turn it over!!! keep tapping the relay till it lets go and you can then hook up the bike's battery after you have "fully charged it first"!!!! so its got the amps to turn the motor over with out welding the starter relay up again,,,heres a tip,,,if your going to leave the bike standing around not in use get yourself a 2.5watt 12 volt solar battery charger and hook that to the bikes battery it wont over charge the battery but it will keep it toped up and fully charged,,and all it needs to work is good light,,,
see free power??? now go off and fix this bmw,,,easy realy?
and dont try starting her up on a car charger,,,use a car battery if you must,,but not just a charger,there is to fuw amps in it to start her up!!!
