Question about 2001 Suzuki SV 650 S

Wining noise when pressing the starter button, engine does not engage. .

Battery is full charge and new starter was installed, but not by me. Is there anything special you have to do when installing the new starter that could have been missed?

SOURCE: Starter problems

you need to check and see if you have 12volts at the relay and if you have 12volts at the wire from the switch on the relay. if you are getting power to the wire from the switch then you may have a bad starter relay.

SOURCE: solenoid just clicks and starter doesn't engage

Does your starter have a good ground now after the paint job??? If you jump from the battery to the starter side of the solenoid, do you get any results?

If you have good power and the starter is known good, your solenoid could be faulty.

Thanks for your question at

You need to check the fuse for the solenoid and make sure it is getting power, and if all else fails you might have gotten a bad solenoid.

The problem is the starter motor vauxhall zafira 2.2 petrol the engine will turn over but its making a sort of wining noice as if its not teeth r not conecting to start engine over also smells of a burning...

I am not that familiar with vauxhall but starters are pretty universal it sounds as if starter is not engaging flywheel all the way either because of aexterior shimming problem during assembly or if this is something new without anyone disturbing original starter it could be solenoid that engages starter pinion to flywheel getting worn out and not engaging all the way or I have even seen where the teeth were not exacly the same angle or even count on a new exact fit oem replacement starter all of which could cause your symptoms

Starter wont engage after replacing dead battery

Check power to starter motor solenoid, solenoid operation and starter motor voltage during cranking. If the starter motor is receiving power from the solenoid, but isn't cranking, then replace the starter motor.

Also check the condition of battery terminals, wiring and connections. Also check the earth wire from the body to the engine.

Car won't start...battery light on...check engine symbol on (canada) ..bad gas....and dash lights flashing...engine won't turn over but made a "whirring " noise then nothing,tried couple of...

I'd have to make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. You can use digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. If the battery is down, get it charged up. We can't do any testing if the battery is down.
On further testing, you can take starter motor off, lay it on the ground. Hook up jumper cables properly from charged battery to starter motor, at the least, the starter motor should spin and kick out the drive gear. If it won't do both, then I suspect the starter motor has a problem. I only mentioned the starter motor because you heard a whirring noise, maybe that noise was the starter motor spinning but not engaging the flywheel, for some reason.

I have a 2005 r6...just put in a new wont start

maybe, now this is just a guess! but your starter shaft is just spinning and not engaging properly..check starter or solenoid to starter wire connections are that they are on solid, and no corrosion, measure bat volt!!!... should read 12.4v "minimum"! if not battery is either going bad or might need a charge...correct voltage reading should be 12.7v to 13volt.

Cannot start the engine but the battery is new

Could be a million things.

  • Do you get a clicking noise when you try and start it? If yes then charge the battery.
  • Does the starter engage? If not then tap it with a wrench and try starting it again. If it still wont engage. Replace starter.
  • Does the Engine turn over? If yes check the coil and that there is fuel in the car.

Starter will not engage

Either your battery is bad or a connection has worked loose. Check battery cables (both ends) and if everything is tight replace the battery.

Wont start

Is starter engaging but is turning the engine slowly then not turning engine? (that's what I'm reading) If so, check both connections at the block and starter. If reading proper voltage 12v or better, check voltage across battery when in "start" if it drops below 9.5v the starter has failed. (you can turn the engine by hand...correct?)

Honda Deauville will not start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The click is significant. It indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either be a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:
  • with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
  • have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
  • determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
  • while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
  • if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
  • if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty or it can not turn the engine..
A few additional ideas:
  • externally charge the battery;
  • drain the tank and carbs of stale fuel;
  • refill with fresh fuel;
  • remove the plugs, center stand the bike, engage 1st gear, rotate rear wheel to exercise engine.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
