PLZ HELP...03 WR450 E-start DEAD
Posted May 18, 2009 - 06:03 PM
I have checked the battery and it is great. The bike kick starts great and runs well. The headlight and taillight work great when the bike is running.
When I push the start button NOTHING happens, not a sound or click. Again, no red LED ever, but the bike and lights work great when running and kickstart works great.
I have checked every wire and electrical connection on the bike and cleaned and greased with dielectric grease. Checked the fuses under the seat too. Also took the housing off the on/off switch and looked at it...everything looks intact. The bike has not had any huge major wrecks, and doesnt appear to have any damage. The e-start used to work okay, but would not work intermittantly. Now it is just dead.
Ideas? I am not the electrical genious and am hoping someone can shed some light on this. Sounds like a short or bad relay or something, but I dont know what is the best thing to start with given the above symptoms.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts and help.
