When the engine is running check the voltage at the battery. It should be over 13VDC or the battery is not charging and will go flat. The battery is charged by a stator under the flywheel and either the stator or the magnets on the flywheel have gone bad. this can be checked with an electrical meter as well. Stator output should be 13 or 14VDC on the red wire the orange or brown wire is for the headlights. All voltage checks should be tested with the engine running at wide open throttle. If it checks out start tracing the wiring harness for loose plugs or broken wires.

Springer classic clicks when trying to start


Make sure the battery is fully charged. Contrary to what some people will tell you, Harley batteries are not fully charged when shipped to dealerships. I work at a dealership and it normally takes a full 8 hour shift to charge a new battery that fits your bike. The clicking sound in normally caused by a low battery. Good luck!

Check ground wire that usually connects from battery to Starter bolt.
Or at least clean connections at battery terminals

Starters take a lot of Current to turn, bad connections at battery will allow many functions to appear fine but No Crank at teh Starter

Sounds like the starter is dragging, when the bike gets hot the starter barely turns. And those bikes don't actually have an alternator. It's like a magneto system that keeps the battery from draining, but doesn't actually charge the battery. I would take the starter off and have it tested.

Put a charger on the battery for two or three hours. Now start the bike up and use a voltmeter to measure the voltage across the two battery terminals while the engine is running around 2000 rpm. The meter should read around 14 volts. If not, the charging system needs to be checked. If the charging system is working properly then yes, something is draining the battery. You will need to check all the wiring and switches to locate the source.

Car wont start...clicking noise


well running the voltage from alternator should be at least 14 volts or a bit higher, engine off it should read at least 13 volts at battery. if alternater is less then 14 volts, it is the alternator at fault. or a loose alt, belt.

Have a 1996 Taurus wagon--dead battery--got brand new battery and connected it properly and car barely turns over and wont turn enough to start--car was sitting for about three months


Was the battery checked before it was sold to you? Batteries will lose their charge over a period of time even when not hooked up. If you have a voltmeter it should read 12.8 volts on a fully charged battery.
Have you tried to boost the car with cables?
I suspect if the car was working OK 3 months ago it should start. Which leads me to suggest an undercharged battery.

I was to advised to charge a new battery only 2 to


Two to three hours should fully charge your battery, to porlong battery life I would let the battery run as low as possible before recharging. Recharging half charged batteries causes the battery to age faster.

Won't start after battery died and recharged


Sounds like low voltage.
Get a boost from another car with a good set of cables.
Once started check voltage with booster car disconnected.
Is it around 14 volts?
If so,the truck is charging, so it may be time for a new battery.

If the voltage is at 12 or lower while running the truck is not charging.
May be time for a new alternator.

The battery should have charged enough in 1 hour to start the truck.
You may need a battery and alternator.
