  1. Check your starter relay fuse. It's probably blown. If not that, (and you obviously have checked for power to the relay fuse when you push the start button, right?) then you should replace the starter relay. $10 to $20, 30 minute job if it's your first time.

What is the name brand and model? On most riding mowers there are several switches that must be actuated before it will start. First, make sure that blades are disengaged. If there is a handle that engages and disengages them, you might try holding it in the dis-engage position in case the switch is out of adjustment. There is probably one under the seat also. This switch kills everything if you are not sitting in the seat for safety reasons. Also, make sure the parking brake is set, and the gear is in neutral, and not forward or reverse. Also, you should check the battery. It is possible that you left the key on by mistake and drained it.

Hope some of this helps.

SOURCE: 2003 883 sportster wont start

What u are describing is typical of a faulty ignition system, but could also be a fuel problem. I check by removing the aircleaner and rotating the throttle. If u see a nice spray of fuel, thats probably not the problem. Check for a spark at the plugs. I can explain how if you need me to. If you cant see a good spark, U have an electrical problem. I had a crank position sensor go bad on me. Dont do what I did (replaced the battery, ignition, and regulator as part of my diagnosis procedure)

Look at this starter relay close, there is a fuse under a black plastic cover, check this fuse for being burnt. Next check the kick stand safety switch, make sure it is in the bracket, tight no loose wires. Next is the clutch safety switch. And last is a neutral safety switch. Here is a manual for you to download. Hope this helps Fix Ya. up. >>>Hondamanual

No power to 2001 yamaha 1600 road star. battery good, fuses good, starter relay good.

Hi, David and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary, 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Faulty starter button.
7. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
8. Security alarm needs a reset.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

My bike will not turn over. When i push the electric start the starter solenoid just clicks.I tried jumping across the solenoid and still nothing, when i got the bike a few months ago I put a new battery...

pull the starter and check it by putting it on a testor or just hooking it to a good(known)battery. If it tests good then check/replace the starter switch and check wires to the switch.

Hi, I have yamaha yzf 125 r(2008) 2 days ago i washed my bike with water. After washing bike started normally as usually. But today when i wanted to start it, starter just trying to start the bike but...

Check your ignition components for condensation. If you wash the bike using water especially around the motor, you should promptly dry it thoroughly before starting it to avoid the possibility of condensation caused shorts in the ignition system. I personally use a leaf blower to dry mine and let it sit in the sun for a while to make sure it's dry. I think you will find condensation is your problem. Good luck and safe riding.

2000 victory 92c nothing on key

Check the main fuse - usually located on the starter solenoid
Check condition of battery & ensure connections are good
Check wiring & connections from battery - to earth point: Check fastness
Check wiring & connections from battery + to starter solenoid and on to Ignition switch then to fuse box

Still got a problem ?

If so get a meter & check the above mentioned wiring for continuity
Check battery voltage & check for power at solenoid & at connections to / from the ignition switch

If that doesn't find the problem then try an Exorcism

Sprint 900 '96 Won't start.did three weeks ago,tried another battery-nothing.starter relay clicks when power applied directly,side stand switch seems to be ok

If no click from starter relay from switch, check kill switch is off first, then clutch switch, ignition fuse, contacts inside the switch (may be corroded or dirty) check by undoing the wiring connector from the left switchgear & check continuity across the start switch & across the kill switch,also check for continuity from start switch to relay

Hope this helps (if so please mark as very helpful)

Vmax battery is good but when starter is pushed the oil light comes on as well as head light but does nothing else, indicators etc work. the bike was working 4 weeks ago

Check your fuse box for dirty connections or corrosion around the fuses. Check the engine cut off switch (rock it back and forth a few times), side stand safety switch of so equipped, clean the battery terminals and cables.

Electrical trouble

If all the fuses turn out good especially the main fuse then you might want to check your starter solenoid. Try jumping the two leads on the solenoid if the bike starts then most likely the solenoid is bad. If it doesn't start then it could be two other things. 1- your Ignitions might be shoot. tell tail signs. Bike cutting out during the ride and bike loses power when you hit the starter button but power returns when you turn the key off then back on. 2- The Rectifier might be gone. The rectifier will cause many different problem that might have you chasing carb problems, to the bike won't start at all with no cranking
