Press start button nothing happens

Is the Key on? battery charged? What model and year of bike? Is the kill switch in the run position? clutch pulled in? All of these things will make the bike not do anything.

Hpw to re wire a 50cc kids quad bike?

I would suggest you look at it as one circuit at a time. I don't know what is on the bike like for example, horn, tail light, head light, brake lights, you get the idea. the main thing to know is that the wire from the magnito is simply grounded to shut the engine down. So wire it that way, either with a key switch or push button, or toggle switch kill switch.

I crossed the pos and neg terminals while jump starting my bike and now nothing happens when the key is turned on. What happened?

You have probably killed the battery and all the electronics on the bike. Get the bike checked by a qualified bike technician/electrician.

I have a Suzuki Intruder 150 that sometimes won't start. There doesn't seem to be any consistancy when this happens but sometimes it starts fine and others it cranks but won't start. When it does it it's a...

It's electrical problem, it seems like something is draining your bike's battery, not letting enough current to go to starter for a strong engine cranking, I suspect there might be a short circuit within the ignition switch and/or wiring, as you said the bike keeps running even with the key out.
