    THANKS I FOUND OUT THE CLICKING SOUND WAS THE FUEL PUMP WHAT IS GOING ON IS I JUST GOT THE BIK OUT OF THE SHOP AND THEY DIDN'T DO SOMETHING RIGHT. I GET POWER LIGHTS BUT NOTHING WHEN I TRY TO TURN IT OVER. IT HAS A NEW BATTERY HOLDING 13V, NEW STARTER AND PLUGS. I TRIED JUMPING IT FROM THE STARTER RELAY AND ONLY A LITTLE TURN OVER. I TELL YA THESE HAYNES SERVICE MANUALS ARE WORTHLESS CYYMER AS WELL. I DON'T WANT TO LOSE THE SEASON. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WITH ALL THE NEW STUFF WHY IT'S DOING IT. I EVEN TRIED THE MMM MODULE JUMP THAT DIDN'T WORK EITHER. THEY SAY THOSE MODULES DO NOTHING AND ARE ON THERE WORTHLESS IDK

Check if power is leaving solenoid to starter while cranking. If starter is getting power to it's power terminal but not turning over,see if you can turn engine over by hand. Check sprage clutch assy into engine also. On my bike there is a flat washer spacer that can away into engine if I am not careful,can jam in gearing.

SOURCE: bike wont start replace start solenoid.when

You didn't mention what year model your bike is so I'll just generalize my response. Since you said that you replaced the solenoid, I'll assume that your bike is a 1988 model or earlier.

Your bike has a starter relay if it still has the stock wiring on it. Harley has used a starter relay since 1965 on the first model of ElectraGlide. Usually, it's underneath the battery tray or the seat or around that area.

On the back of your solenoid, you have three wire connections. Two very large connectors and one small connector. Make sure your bike is out of gear (in neutral) and use an old screwdriver to short between the large connector that comes from the battery and the small wire connection. The starter should engage and try to start the engine. If the ignition switch is on, it will start the engine. The starter will turn using this method with or without the switch being in the "on" position. If the starter works using this method, the problem is in either the relay or the neutral switch. If the starter does not turn the engine over, the problem is in the solenoid.

Now, let's check a few things. The small connector on the back of the solenoid should have a green or pink (depending on year) wire on it. Using a voltmeter or a test light, make sure you have voltage at the connector when you press the starter button with the switch in the "ON' position. If not, follow the wire to it's source, the relay.

The starter relay can be one of several different designs used throughout the years. It could be a small plastic cube, a small metal can, or a round phonelic relay. The relay should have four connections on it. A "hot" wire, a wire from the handlebar switch, the wire going to the starter, and a ground. The ground may be through the case itself. On the older Shovelhead bikes (1984 and earlier) there was a small short black wire that ran from the starter relay to the transmission for the ground. This wire must be intact or the relay would not work due to lack of a ground.

When you turn the switch on, one of the wires to the starter relay should become "hot". When you press the start button, you should hear a slight click and another of the smaller wires should now be "hot" as well, the one going to the starter.

On some year (1972 and later) models, the neutral switch was wired in with the starter relay. This was to prevent the bike from starting while "in gear" by disabling the relay. You'll have to figure this one out for yourself since I don't know what year model your bike is.

Now, you said you had power to the solenoid when you pushed the starter switch. So, let's assume that the starter failed the first test to told you aboue. If so, the problem is still most likely in the solenoid. Inside the solenoid, there is a large plunger with a copper disc on it. When you depress the starter switch, the coil in the solenoid becomes magnetized and pulls the plunger towards the back of the solenoid. This does two things, it engages the starter drive with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum and makes a high current electrical connection. The copper disc makes contact between the two large connections on the back of the solenoid from the inside. This connects the battery to the starter motor through the solenoid. If the black phonelic plate on the back of the solenoid is cracked or the contacts inside of it are badly burned, it will not work.

Now, if the solenoid is working correctly and you are getting voltage to your starter, it could be the brushes or something inside the starter. This is indicated if the starter trys to turn the engine over but just can't. It won't have enough power if the starter field windings are bad.

I hope I've given you something here that will help you solve your problem. This is basically the electrical part of the starter system. There are mechanical parts as well. If you hear the starter turning but the engine doesn't turn over, you have a mechanical problem. You can either repost or you can contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net I'll help if I can. Good Luck!

1997 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder wont start


It sounds like a starter relay.the fact that the bike will start when you jump to the starter motor supports this.Your starter relay will be close to the battery and will have four wires going to it ,two lighter wires and two battery size.cables.It will be about two inches long and be black on top and metallic below.Service is by replacement only, I think they are around $25-$35.Just remember you have battery power going to the one side,don't let it ground on the frame.good luck

Won't start battery charged


Usually, a single click means a bad starter relay.

Engine wont turn


1. Make sure your battery is fully charged.
2. Check connections from battery to starter relay.
3. Make sure you have voltage going to the start side (small wire) of the relay with the key in the "start" position.
4. If you don't have voltage going to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in the start positon, then your starter switch is faulty (under dash usually mounted on top of steering column).
5. If you have voltage to the start side of the relay (small wire) with key in start position, and it don't click when trying to start your car, then the starter relay is bad.
6. If your starter relay clicks, but engine don't turn over, then the starter is faulty.

What needs to be addressed if I have a new battery and all my '97 suzuki marauder 800 does is click when I press the start button?


Your battery is new ... did it come fully charged or were you suppose to charge it before you installed it? Check the voltage, should be at least 11 volts. I might be calling the store to get further instruction ...

Double check all connections, make sure they are clean and tight (and proper - negative to the ground, positive to the hot side of the start solenoid).

OK I have a 98 VZ800 Suzuki Marauder, the last few times Ive gone for a ride its started to give me starting issues. Id get a click but no start the first time it started on the 3rd try, then each ride...


Hi, Lkirby2 nice novella before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced especially "AGM" batteries and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, must be 12.5 volts or better, voltage from the battery to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid can not drop more than 1/2 volt of battery voltage.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohmmeter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buying a new one.

While riding my 04 marauder 800 it died. It will not not even attempt to crank now. I tested the bat. and it is good. What has shut down my bike??


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, if the battery has been charged and load tested to be good, then check the 30A main fuse. This is of course assuming that the bike is dead electrically. The main fuse would be located in the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Starter wont turn.


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have the battery externally charged, checked and load tested.

Offhand, if the battery is fully charged/new and:
  • the electrical is completely dead, check the main fuse inside the starter relay;
  • if there is just a clicking sound, check, bypass (test), replace the starter relay;
  • if there is no clicking sound, check the start button switch, the engine ON/OFF switch, the sidestand and/or the clutch switch.
Of course if bypassing the starter relay and still the starter motor will not spin, then possibly a starter motor concern or more particularly the carbon brushes and/or the commutator segments.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Sounds like the oil is thick. Do you know what weight oil was installed last? If there was 40 weight put in and its getting colder out it get thicker. You can change the oil to a 30 weight and change the filter to see if that helps.
