I am not getting power to the starter motor

When I hook the battery up and connect the battery charger to the battery and turn the key , all I get is a clicking sound that souns like it is coming from the solenoid. But no power is going to the starter.

If you are sure it`s not the battery then it must be the solenoid or the starter but its very seldom these give trouble. Try a battery that you know is fully charged and take it from there. Stephen.

My 2001 monte carlo wont turn over I have it hooked up to charger but when I turn the key it only ticks


Make sure the battery has a full charge. If you use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts.
If your using a jump box or charger, hopefully the gage on the tool will tell you something?
If you want to check the starter motor or wiring circuits at the starter motor, we can do that. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.

C70 no power and key stuck in ignition


Generally to get the key out spray internals thru key hole with DWC or similar electronic friendlt spray, some silicones are ok. Then gently move key up and down and turn off & on, wriggle a bit then try to remove key. If not ok then more spray and repeat. Generally this will remove the key, usually it is the security lock dops that are struck and holding the key in.
No power. If once the key is out and reinserted the power is is out then I would get the battery chkd as it could hv "fallen over". Not enough actual energy to turn the motor, u could test with another battery hooked. Otherwise the starter motor connection c/be faulty, or battery connections need cleaning. chk all wiring to starter motor by undoing & reconnecting all. cheers

How do i hook up battery charger to my 2000 fat boy? is there a way without taking off the seat?


You can connect the positive clamp of your battery charger to the starter connection. The positive cable of the battery connects to the starter solenoid. Then the other side of the solenoid connects to the starter motor. Connect the positive clamp of the charger to the connection where the battery cable connects to the solenoid. Connect the negative clamp to the engine or frame.

Good Luck

Turn the key, heard starter solenoid pop, clicking like there wasnt enough power from battery. Replaced battery, turned key, and all the lights on dash went out, unhooked battery checked connection, then...


Either the cable from the battery to the starter is shorted or the starter motor itself has a dead short or the starter relay has a short. As soon as the key is turned, the starter relay is closing and all the power of the battery is heading for the short to ground. That's why the power seems to be lost.

After motor work starter runs when power applied


sounds like starter solenoid is staying energized sending continued power to starter. need to make sure you plugged the right wire from the starter button and not another hot wire w/ fulltime hot. also if thats ok need to test for power turning off to solenoid when releasing button. if thats ok try tapping on solenoid. lastly, make sure your positive cable from battery is hooked to starter solenoid, then another hot cable(longer) hooks from solenoid to starter, if you hook long hot cable directly from starter to battery, starter will continueous spin.

Generator won't start & now starter will not shut off when it has power


I have seen this happen in cars- the problem is most likel the ignition unit -they do not spend a lot of money on them in production. So here is what is happening . When you are putting key in and out metal filings are being deposited inside unit- this is now causing a short and draining batteries. Start here.This happened with cars a few years ago and they were catching fire in driveways.Call dealer and get replacement ignition- should be cheap fix. Good luck.
