Question about Toys

1 Answer

We've got a Suzuki 12V quad (kids yellow one, probably suitable for kids from about 3 to 8) but there must be a loose connection somewhere. What's the easiest way to troubleshoot where the loose connection might be? Might even be the connector between the battery and quad - can that be easily replaced?

The most often cases for loosy connections are either the connector you mentioned, or the button that the boy press to go. Unfortunatelly using a multimeter is not so easy to locate the loosy point at these cases. So put the toy onto a box or something else in order to keep the rotating wheels free and check for the loosy point. Another one possible cause is the connection with the motor, but not so often.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

    Is it easy to actually get at the internal wiring and do you know/could you guess which wires are most likely causing the problem. It goes very intermittently. If the problem is with the connector what would be the best fix?

    Typically the connection diagram has to be like this:

    The cables are the red lines and the possible loosy connection (maybe connections) are the green X marks. Maybe there is somewhere in the middle of a cable a fuse; it can be on whoever cable. Check these connections too. The best way (without any tools) is the one I mentioned at my first post (with the toy onto a box e.t.c.) In case you locate the loosy connection you must use a suitable fixing tool in order to cut and reconnect the contact. I don't know the exact type of the connector with the problem so I can't be more specific. Anyway I think that the main purpose is to locate the problem. By the way check the cables all the way (by view); maybe there is a mechanical cut somewhere.
    In case you locate the loosy connector, a photo would help me further.

    In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

King Quad 400as 4x4. Why doesn't it start?


Hi, Chip this flow chart is for a Harley but the procedure is still the same, it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test if necessary, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, 12.5 volts or better,to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid has dropped more than 1/2 volt.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohm-meter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buy a new one.

Suzuki Grand Vitare 2.0l. How to check why heater fan is not running


If the heater fan is not running;
1. Check the fuse first of all.

2. Check if the fan is running when connecting 12VDc directly to the fan.
If not running . Replace Fan.

3. If Fan OK - check the voltage on the connector from the fan between red and Black wire. Must be 12V

If no 12V - Supply voltage is missing - probably fuse defect.

4.If 12V = OK - measure the voltage on the Violet wire in the connector.
When button on dashboard is set to "Fan active" You must measure a voltage here close to 10VDc. If OK Fan Resistor/Regulator defective.
5 If no voltage (10V) on the wire (violet) when set to "Fan active" controlboard behind the dashboard defective.

Car battery goes dead within 3 days it is my new pioneer radio that drains it.


Would not think so, radios do not use that much power. My car sits idle for weeks, still with power to constant 12v. Check your battery, IF going flat that quick, probably needs replacing

Back up lights out, so many wires!!!!


black: ground( all bulbs require a ground to operate)
green: right turn
yellow: left turn
red: brake
yellow and purple: back up

these are basic wiring colors they may not be exact for your aplication your best bet is to find someone u know with an ohm meter( multi meater) who knows how to test voltage and sort out the wires and re connect with splices NOT tape ur only asking for trouble if u dont do it right the first time ( oh before u start check the fuse size and get some extra u will probably blow a few sorting it out best of luck

When i turn my car on the my avic-f90bt pioneer goes on but after about 20 seconds shuts right off again and continues doing the same thing over and over again


Check your wiring. Sounds like you've got a bad ground, or missed a 12v source somewhere. Remember - There is a 12v constant that keeps your radio constantly tied in (so your clock stays correct, etc) and a 12v Ignition/ACC which tells your radio when you've turned the car ON or in ACC mode (which turns the radio on).
If you've mixed the two up, you'd probably get the results you're getting.

Gsxr 750 no spark how do i test cdi


I've this data from my 1986 engine!

Under the left hand side cover there are 2 2-wire connections. One with a green and a black wire, one with a blue and a yellow wire.
Use an ohmmeter at R x 100 between both wires of a connector to check the pick-up coils: resistance must be between 130 and 180 Ohms.

The values of the ignition coil resistances are:
primary coil : 3-5ohms ( set ohmmeter at R x 1 )
Secundary coil : 25.000 - 45.000 ohms ( set ohmmeter at R x 1.000 )
For a correct measurement ALL leads must be disconnected ( also the spark plug leads )

The CDI cannot be tested with a simple measurement. Suzuki dealers have a special tool to test CDI boxes.
But checking the pick-up coils and ignition coils good will indicate an defective CDI.

The wires on the CDI:
Blue: PU coil 1 ( cyl 1-4 )
Yellow: PU coil 1
Green: PU coil 2 ( cyl 2-3 )
Blue : PU coil 2
Orange/white : +12v ign coil 1-4
White : switched coil negative side ign coil 1-4
Orange/white : +12v ign coil 2-3
Blue/yellow: switched coil negative side ign coil 1-4 ( and signal to tachometer )
Blue/white : ground

Thus, you must have +12V on both Orange/white leads.
