    when wiring bypassed it starts fine, but must be a drain in power between ignition and starter solenoid. Solenoid had been replaced and new battery installed.

2005 Kawasaki mule 610. Once the hot lead is attached to the new solenoid/starter it reaches 180 degrees F within seconds, will not start, no chaffed wires, no key in or on, battery wired properly.


The only logical reason for the wire to become very hot is that there is a direct short to Ground. Either the new solenoid/starter is shorted to Ground internally or the attachment point of the source positive wire is not properly isolated from the Grounding of the starter case.

What would make the starter engage when the key out of the ignition


Your problem seems to be a faulty solenoid. The solenoid is a little monster that lives on top of the starter motor, and its job is twofold. Firstly, it supplies full battery power to the starter motor, and secondly it drives a gear on the starter to engage with the engine flywheel.
Now, your problem. The first guess could be the ignition switch, but fitting a toggle seems like a fairy tale answer. Check the starter solenoid to see if there is a frayed wire on the thin wire that connects to the starter, or possibly a frayed wire on the battery cable that is shorting to the small connector. Otherwise, I have seen the terminal of this small wire actually become loose and turn in the direction of the battery cable, which is also connected to the solenoid. A short here will cause the problem you are describing.
Finally, the solenoid could have a short circuit inside the body, which means replace the solenoid.

1997 toyota tercel has brand new starter in it but when I turn key to start it the starter keeps trying to star even with the engine running, when I turn car off and take key out it still continues to


Hello Theresa Honeycutt,

There is an easily explainable configuration that would cause your dilemma on OLD FASHION 4 connection (two big posts & two small gauge wire posts) starter SOLENOIDS...

1997 Tercel is 3 wire (can't happen)

Technically what you are describing is not possible as a USER MISTAKE because the TOYOTA solenoid only has THREE Battery TERMINALS showing.

It is a MANUFACTURING DEFECT.

YOU will need to return the starter as DEFECTIVE and get another one..

Fault: The primary winding of the ("s" lead on classic drawings ... "st1" lead on the 1997 Tercel) has a DIRECT SHORT to the output battery (starter motor side) of the main battery source (internal solenoid defect).

There should be ABSOLUTELY no continuity between the large posts (battery & motor) and the ST1 terminal WITHOUT THE STARTER switch ("st1") momentary contact being energized.

Then inspect the Ring gear on the vehicle to assure no
GEAR TEETH have been broken off in the previous melee... (Serious job... hope not).

(BBB-Industries-17681=1997+tercel+starter)

Use the BBB Industries FREE wiring diagrams to trace your "starter wire" (registration required: proprietary documents).

This is a possibility. The header says you're working on a 1979 XLH 1000cc Sportster. This is not a 250cc bike and it takes a good battery to start and engine of this size. I've never seen a CCA rating on the battery requirement in a service manual but it does say that the battery should be capable of at least 32 Ahr.

Good Luck

Assuming the engine has not siezed, there is a short in the starter circuit. Probably the starter/solenoid, but you can verify. Disconnect the negative battery terminal, then the big red wire from the starter solenoid. Wrap the wire terminal tom prevent shorting, reconnect the battery terminal and try again. If nothing happens this time, replace the starter/solenoid. If short is still present with starter unhooked, trace wire back from starter to find short. Let me know if you have more questions.

No power to bike/new charged battery/is there


The pre-2000 models came with circuit breakers instead of fuses. They look like little metal cans that are about 1/2" wide by about 1 1/2" long. When a short circuit causes the current draw to exceed the rating of the circuit breaker, it will break with a slightly audible "ping". After a few minutes, it will reset itself. If the short circuit is still present, it will simply start the cycle all over again.

Now, there is a main circuit breaker. Usually it's under the seat and it's rated at 30 amps. It could have been replaced with a fuse by a previous owner if the bike was purchased used.

Now, at the battery or the starter, you should have an additional wire that supplies power to the entire bike. The large battery cable connects to the postive side of the battery and then goes down to the starter. Your bike should have the Nippondenso type starter on it as the '88 year model was the last to have the seperate starter solenoid and Hitachi starter. At one or the other places, the starter or the battery, there should be a large single wire connected along with the battery cable. This wire is the what I call the "accessories" power wire. It must be connected or there will be no power to the rest of the bike. If you failed to reconnect it at the battery, this could be your problem.

If you will contact me directly and tell me you need a schematic for your '89 FLHS, I can send it to you e-mail. [email protected]

Good Luck

sounds like you are hooking up the starter wrong. the positive goes to the starter main terminal from the battery. the ignition wire goes to the s on the solenoid, which activates 12 volts when the ignition switch is turned on which causes a magnetic field
inside the solenoid and joins the connectors
in the solenoid to the main positive wire from the
battery to the main starter unit brushes/armature inside the starter unit. If you have a constant
12 volts from the ignition wire it will keep the solenoid engaged. If you put the main positive wire on the wrong solenoid terminal it will immediately engage the starter. try putting the main battery wire to the correct terminal or perhaps check the ignition wire for a short or constant voltage to the solenoid.

Blown the starter solenoid fuse, all other electrics look OK. Replaced fuse no life, is the starter dead or any other common problem?. It just stopped on the road. thanks


Check the electrical system from the battery ground (at the engine) to the battery.
chech the wires from the battery thru the solenoid to the starter. See if the starter will operate when it is "shorted" (touch a (large) wire from the battery + terminal to the starter post) be careful not to touch anything else. If it works this way you need a solenoid. If not, have the starter checked out.
There usually is some reason for a blown fuse.

1966 Mustang 289 V8 auto 2b new battery and solenoid-won't crank


Check the battery terminals. If they have become corroded you could be getting a bad connection. When the starter is engaged it creates such a power load at the connections that it will arc and loose power. Or, you could have a bad ground wire off the battery. Also check the positive cable leading down to the starter. Most of the mustangs had the battery cable leading to the starter between the engine and the exhaust manifold. Eventually they melt through and can cause a short. This would require replacing the cable. Good luck.
