Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Quick disconnect check ball stuck.
14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Improper valve clearance (too tight)
17. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
18. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
19. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
20. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
21. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
22. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
23. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
24. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
25. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
26. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
27. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: blows ignition fuse when key is turned on

Look for a grounded wire on the ignition switch or a break in the wiring leading to the fuse. Wiring system on motorcycles are a close system with only the battery being grounded to the frame. Any loose connections or breaks in the wires that will allow the current to jump to the frame with cause you tons of fun.

SOURCE: 110cc atv

There are three things required for combustion to occur: Fuel, compression, and a spark (at the right time). One, or more, of these is/are missing.
If the bike has been in storage for more than about a year, then you can bet that the carburetor is plugged up. It will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned.
Also, check the compression. if it has a four stroke engine, it should be capable of developing at least 135 psi of compression (throttle wide open, choke fully open). If the compression is low (and it is a four stroke engine), check the valve tappet clearances. Insufficient tappet clearance will cause low compression.

SOURCE: i have a 110cc chinesse built atv. i got gas in

These engines are based on the awesome Honda design. Unfortunately, they do not have the same quality. If you verify there is fuel getting to the cylinder and there is also spark, you need to verify compression. One of the tendencies of these engines is the valves will actually tighten as they wear in. This can cause the valves to open prematurely which causes all kinds of starting issues. Check you compression and run a leak-down check to see what the compression portion of your engine looks like.

If you need to adjust your valves, do this with the engine cold and spark plug out.

  • Remove the valve caps (I believe these are 17mm and they are located on top and bottom of the cylinder head.) There may be a little oil come out of the lower (exhaust) cap.
  • Remove the left side cover. This is left side if you are riding the bike. This is the stator side and there should be no oil in this part of the engine. This will also allow you to turn the engine and align the piston with top dead center.
  • Rotate the engine counter clockwise until the alignment marks, sometimes indicated by a "T" are aligned with the mark on the case. If both valves are closed, you should be at top dead center. If they are not, make one more rotation.
  • Use a feeler guage to check clearance between top of valve and rocker arm.
  • I believe you will need to use a 10mm wrench to loosen the adjuster lock on the rocker arm. Once loosened, the adjuster will screw up or down as needed.
  • If needed, adjust the intake valve to:.05-.09mm and the exhaust valve to: .11-.15mm.
  • Once adjusted reverse the process.
If your valves are good to go and you are still having this problem. Remove the flywheel and verify the alignment key has not sheared on the crankshaft. The ignition timing on these Chinese engines is not adjustable, but can be off significantly if this key is sheared. I hope this is somewhat helpful.

SOURCE: Rocket 3 wont start. dials dead

Lift the tank. Underneath it you'll find a plastic connector block joining loads of wires together. Turn the ignition on and push this connector block together, or twist it around a bit. If the ignition sequence starts, it'll be because the wires in the connector block are corroded. Moving the block sometimes makes a temporary fix, but ultimately it'll happen again until the block or the wiring harness ideally, is replaced.

My 2004 Mercury Sable blows the run/acc fuse every time you cycle the key The car runs fine but does not have wipers radio heater controls or gas gauge This vehicle has a remote start that has not fu

If the remote start was not working and you were not blowing the fuse, and is doing so now. that would suggest that could be the problem. But something is definitely giving you a direct ground on your key cycle. I would go through and disconnect the remote start first, then if that does not fix the problem, then its time to disconnect all the accessory on that fuse and one by one check them for a ground or short. I also would like to know how are you starting the car once the fuse blows ?

1. did you replaced the fuse with the same
specification or amperes as the original?you must
replace it as by the original becos if you will put a
lower ampere,then it cant carry the load thats why
there is a blowing of fuse..
2. check the started,there is a posibility that the rewind or coil has damaged and the watts & ampere of the said starter might be going high.

Regarding on the problem that it wont fire.Check the spark plug,claen the carburator and set the right timing.

When i turn my key to the start position the ignition start/run fuse blows. 2004 ram 1500 3.7 engine

probably a bad starter solenoid, first remove the negative battery cable, then remove the two wires from your starter, wrap them in black tape so they wont short out on anything, repl,ace your fuse and hook battery back up and turn key to start, no blown fuse-bad starter, if it blows the fuse it's a wiring short and you should take it to a qualified mechanic
