Check fuses. Check voltage. Could be a burned, or just broken fuse. Could be a dead battery. Could be as simple as poor battery connections. If not, perhaps the following will help:

A starter can be tested in a very simple way, by applying 12vdc to the power input, and grounding the case. If it spins, then it's on to step 2, checking connections.

Starters are much too simple to be more complicated than that, but the electrical system can be. Check the circuit between the relay and the starter. Is is a direct wire with no breaks? If so, check the voltage at the power output and input of the relay. If it is good, check the power input and grounding of the starter.

Most new bikes have a clutch switch, and it may interrupt the 12vdc to the starter, without affecting the relay. Same thing goes for the nuetral switch.

Try starting in nuetral, with the clutch pulled. Check the relay for conections that you may have taken off, and not replaced. Same thing for the starter.

2002 mazda 626 new starter wont engage flywheel. it sounds like starter is spining wont engage flywheel


Couple possibilities. Was the starter just replaced? If so. Were their any shims (small metal pieces) that were not put back? They space the starter so the bendix and gear can align with fly wheel.. secondly could be a bad starter, broke bendix. Bad gear..or third missing teeth on either fly wheel or starter..

What would cause a load noise after replacing starter?


Some starters must be aligned for the proper engagement; with chevys it is with shims. Check your shop manual for your car model and vin to find the procedure for setting the proper clearance.

Starter spinning wrong way


Wow. Probably the positive and negative connections have gotten reversed in the solinoid and starter motor. Still stuck? I recommend a DIYer's repair manual that shows electrical connections for the starting system.

Car won't engage starter


At the starter relay, you have two red or purple wires, one goes to the starter and the other comes from a 30amp fuseable link. Is that fuseable link circuit hot ?
From the key switch, power goes thru the alarm relay, then the clutch safety switch or automatic selector switch, then to the starter relay. The fourth wire on the starter relay is a ground.
You should be able to put power to the starter relay on the white or yellow wire coming from the safety switch to make the relay engage.
My guess is something wrong with the alarm system.

try turning the engine over by hand do it without the ignition on. see how hard it is to turn. turn it a few times then try to start with starter motor. if still will not turn check the starter motor is engaging. check wiring and make sure there is a good earth.

Wont turn over has new battery and starter


Add oil. Check your Brake lights. If they do not work, the problem with starting is the brake safety switch. You are required to put your foot on the brake pedal to start your car.

If the brake safety switch is broken or knocked loose of the holder on the brake pedal lever, you will not get the release signal to engage the starter.

The lights flash and clicking under dash and hood but the starter wont engage. it wont engage with the key either. my wife is upset when she cant start either way and I dont know what to do. 98 gmc 5.7...


I think you need to buy a new starter buddy if it won't engage you're going to need a new starter there's really no way around that but once you get a new starter you should be fine they're not too expensive

I have a 2005 r6...just put in a new battery..bike 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.
