Question about Suzuki GSF 1200 Bandit S Motorcycles

1 Answer

The 30 amp fuse for my starter solenoid kept blowing out every time I turned on my key. I put a new starter solenoid put to use. Wrote it for about three miles in a fuse popped again. I pulled the solenoid out again cleaned the plug to the gas tank off and looked for any wires that maybe touching the frame, causing short. Put the tank back on hooked the starter solenoid put in a new fuse started engine and turn the key 30 times drove bike six times in the neighborhood and put on 11 miles. The 30A fuse has not blown yet how would I test my system to make sure I have the shorts could someone give me the answer to go through the starter solenoid the ignition switch and the two coils

SOURCE: 1974 honda cb550 will not run?

• The first thing to do with ANY engine that has sat for any longer than a couple of months is to dump ALL the fuel in the tank and carb(s). ALL OF IT !! You'll want to refill with some high priced fuel that has fuel system cleaners (Like Chevron with Techron) not becasue you need high-test fuel, but because you need the cleaners. It's ether that or disassemble the carbs and clean out jets you can't find much less see. Your choice. The carb kits alone will cost you about $50 so a tank of high-test is looking pretty good, huh?

• Now the fact that you tried to crank the engine with old fuel has fouled the sparkplugs. All of them. Go buy all new sparkplugs.

SOURCE: Cannot diagnose source of electrical fault

TRY A TO BYPASS ALL SYSTEMS WITH A POSITIVE LEAD SHOULD WORK BUT YOU NEED AT LEAST 9VOLTS TO GET THE IGNITER TO EVEN THINK ABOUT LETTING THE COILS HAVE ANY POWER TO EXPLODE THE GAP POINT OF YOU'RE SPARK PLUGS SO GOOD LUCK

Either that or the relay that connects the positive lead to the starter is shorted. If you can get into the relay, you may be able to hold the contacts open if the switch is shorted or the contacts may have welded themselves together

?Had a new starter and new battery put on my 1999 Chevy Tahoe.. we by it starts sometimes and sometime it don't..what could the problem be


I'm assuming just by the fact you had a new battery and new starter that sometimes when you turn the key to the start position , nothing happens . Is your vehicle a automatic transmission ? When it doesn't start have checked for battery voltage at the starter solenoid S terminal ? Is there B+ voltage at pins 30 & 86 for the starter relay ? Pin 86 while cranking the engine or trying to crank the engine over . Pin 30 check with key on . Try moving gear selector to neutral . Videos on youtube for basic automotive electrical testing . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit Find a wiring diagram at www.bbbind.com
Starting System Circuit Description
Voltage is applied at all times to the ignition switch from the IGN A fuse 6 through CKT 242 (RED). When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, voltage is applied to the CRANK fuse 8 through CKT 5 (YEL). From the CRANK fuse 8, voltage is either applied to the clutch pedal position switch (M/T) or the transmission range switch (A/T) through CKT 806 (PPL). When either the clutch is disengaged (M/T) or the transmission is in park or neutral (A/T), voltage is applied to the coil of the starter relay through CKT 1035 (PPL/WHT). Since the starter relay is permanently grounded at ground G105 through CKT 150 (BLK), the starter relay energizes.
Voltage is applied at all times to the starter relay contacts from IGN A fuse 6 through CKT 242 (RED). When the starter relay energizes, the starter relay contacts close, and voltage is applied to the starter motor solenoid. Since the starter motor solenoid is permanently case grounded, the starter motor solenoid will energize two coils. The pull-in winding coil energizes in order to pull the starter motor solenoid contacts closed. When the contacts close, a plunger on the contacts causes the pull-in winding coil circuit to open. The hold-in winding coil then holds the starter motor solenoid contacts closed. Voltage is then applied to the starter motor from the battery through CKT 1 (BLK) and the closed contacts of the starter motor solenoid. Since the starter motor is also permanently case grounded, the starter motor will run until the ignition switch is moved out of the START position. When this happens, a spring in the starter motor solenoid moves the starter motor solenoid contacts and the plunger back to the rest position.

2006 Suzuki Boulevard c50. Main 30 amp fuse blows as soon as the start button is hit.


sounds like the starter is shorted out or the bike was tried to start when battery was near dead and the starter is engagaed if starter is engagaed put it in gear and bump(push the bike ) it a few times forward and back this should disengage the starter if it still blows fuses the you may have a shorted windings in the starter and it will need to be rebuilt

When i go to start my kawasaki el250b2 bike the starter relay pops the 30 amp fuse what can cause this


A 30 amp fuse is a major short circuit. The problem should be easy to find. Trace the + battery lead to the solenoid and check for any bare wire touching anything metal. If all good then disconnect from the solenoid, keep it away from metal and try to start, if the fuse blows then the problem is the wiring between the fuse and the solenoid. If the fuse remains intact then the problem is in the solenoid or starter itself. Reconnect the wire to the solenoid and disconnect the one to the starter and isolate each in turn. This should at least tell you were the fault is. Hope this helped you

Honda ES6500 blows 15amp fuse as soon as the key is turned to "ON" tested starter with a jumper wire, works fine. Took the control box apart found nothing unusual. Removed ignition switch found...


hi
I think the problem is on when the key is turn to rotate and to engage the starter motor and it at this point that the cable curring the current on to the starter motor it then the fuse gets blown , in my opinion this cable is shortening across the chassis causing the fuse to blow, or when it get to the starter solenoid a faulty solenoid absorbs accessed electric current causing the fuse to blow

Fuses only blow if-Old,Overheated or you have a Short circuit.
That should be any easy fix,to the extent that there aren't many 40 Amp Fuses and you will need a wiring diagram to follow the problem from the fuse to the cause. If you know what fuse it is, you can guess,but I wouldn't recommend that,it will be time consuming and maybe costly ,if you don't have a test procedure to follow and throw parts at it.
Don't replace the fuse.Their expensive and will keep blowing.

30 amp ignition fuse in engine compartment blows at start


It sounds like a bad ignition switch or something is grounding out.Try to isolate the problem to key positions.See if the fuse blows when you turn the key to ACC(when your dash lights come on without starting)If the fuse does not blow then when you go to start it and it blows it could be one of many problems,the more common ones could be ignition switch,wiring,starter relay,starter soleniod,or perhaps the starter itself is shorting out,this can sometimes happen when a starter goes bad.

30 amp fuse blows when trying to start engine


I always start by unplugging lights, kill wire to coil electric clutch if it has one ,sometime its the fuel shut off solenoid on the bottom of carb if it has one.
You can keep trying until you find the thing that does not blow a fuse or use an ohm meter to read from pos cable to ground of tractor unhook ground wire to battery you will read short to ground thru coil kill wire,starter solenoid small wire on spade,fuel shut off
solenoid ,electric clutch ,rectifier (charging system )and large wire to starter thats why I unplug them .
I have seen more shorts from lights , fuel shut off solenoid , charging system. not ing coil not safety switches not even bad starters.
good luck
