My bike worked fine when i went to start it nothing no headlight nothing. I have a 883 2000 sporster i have checked the plugs and bought new spark plug wires. i am a girl new to fixing bikes but will do my...

By "no headlight nothing" I take it no headlight, taillight, horn, as no power, right?

First, buy a MULTIMETER:

This will come in handy for many things, so it is a good investment!

Check your battery and see what (if any) charge it has.
If the battery is dead, this could be your problem.

If not, next up is check the fuses.
The multimeter helps here, as I have come across fuses that looked good (not burned through), but for some reason, they were bad.

Check the battery terminals. Are they tight? No "crud" growing on them?

Is the other end of the ground cable making good contact?

Hesitation on Startup. Battery & Alternator are good. Fuel related? Spark plugs?

If you are saying it takes a long time to start the engine, have you checked fuel pressure before and after cranking ?

if you dont hear it buzzyng in there, check with multimeter if youre getting power to it, if yes, check the button. if you can open it up use the working button. if it dont work, then its your window motor.

Truck wouldn't start the other day....was told to take a heater and put it under the hood for an hour- seemed to work, but i dont want to have this problem again. Battery is fine, fuel pump is fine...any...

If the vehicle did not turn over at all then when it does it again you need to check and see if you are getting power to the starter.You can use a test light or multimeter.Have someone turn the key to crank and you check for voltage at the starter,If you don`t have a meter or test light then tap it with a hammer while they turn the key to start.If it starts then your starter is bad.If it is cranking but not starting then you need to check for spark at all the plugs while someone is cranking the motor.You also need to make sure you have the correct fuel pressure.It has to be 55-62 psi.Just because you can hear the pump does not mean the fuel pump is good.It still has to put out between 55-62 psi no less.Let me know if you have anymore questions.Good luck.

Check the CHARGiNG SYSTEM testing the alternator by using ur multimeter, test the output of the alternator by putting the multi tester to DC VOLT at 50 volt, the voltmeter must register a 13volt to 14 V! STARTER problem did you try hammering your starter just to free up the armature? try it, let somebody start ur ignition while u hammer down the starter! If that don't work, you have to bring it to ur mechanic, there might be some problem in the ARMATURE BRUSH and the SOLENOiD!

92 Accord Battery, Alternator, Battery Cables and fuses changed out. Battery is being drained dont know what else it could be...Help me please!

sounds like you have done more work than needed I wouldn't have changed your alternator, waste of money

1st check your battery with a multimeter (go digital if you can) theses are very cheap to buy, and you will use it a lot, set it to volts DC as per instructions start car and connect multimeter probes or clips to appropriate battery termianals, read display it shoud be 13.8 volts,, you now know battery cables and alternator are fine,, disconnect battery and do the same with multimeter on the battery again, leave sitting and watch reading if it goes below 12 volts over an hour your battery needs replacing.. If all good check when the battery terminals are back on tight and clean put the multimeter probes on termianls and ignition off and watch to see if reading starts to drop, if nothing turn ignition to accessories with everything turned off and again watch meter,, its a long process If you find it is still draining then pull a fuse at a time and check meter each time, if still dropping put the fuse back in and pull another one out.... repeat process till found........ before you start check glove box light isnt staying on, boot/trunk light is going off, ( put someone in there if you cant see) ,, If you have put in an aftermarket stero it may draw to much and you may have to upgrade your system, start with checking your battery

I own a YS 4500 Craftsman tractor (Model No. 917 287 242). It was running fine the last time I used it but then wouldn't start. No response when turning key. I checked battery with multimeter - it's fine....

If you think it is the seat switch you can check it with your multimeter, just unplug it and check the resistance across the switch with and without pressure on the seat where the switch is located. Another way to test would be to take a short jumper wire, unplug the switch and jump across the 2 wires in the plug, then try to start it.
I would be more inclined to think it is the fuse in your system, however. Most of the time the fuse is a plug in fuse located on the right side of the tractor, behind the back of the engine and is usually a blue (15 amp) or yellow (20 Amp)
