2001 Polaris Trailblazer 250 electrical issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm working on a 2001 Trailblazer. It wouldn't start and found the top end needed to be rebuilt. Took care of that last week and put it back together. Now I have no power to anywhere. The battery is chargerd and the the cables have good connection. I turn on the key and have nothing, no lights and it won't turnover. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have no power turning the, check the ignition switch leads for power. You'll need to grab a multi meter and start working from the battery out to test for power. Before you do that, check any fuses.

Ok, now another issue. I can't win. It turns over fine but won't start. I hold my hand over the intake of the carb and then it will fire up fine and run. Supposidly the carb was just rebuilt. What should I be looking for?

Thanks!

Sounds like  either  a  needle  valve  not  adjusted  right,    or  a plugged  passage  in the "rebuilt" carb..  Is there  an  "enrichening " valve  or  choke  on the  motor?  If  a  choke ,  is  it  closing  ?.. If  it  is an enrichening  valve ,   I would guess   either  it  is  not   adjusted  properly (needle  valve needs  adjusting)  or the   passage is  plugged.  Holding your  hand over the   carb is  choking the  motor  so  it  pulls  more  gas  in, enrichening the  mixture so  it  can  cold start.  Does  the  motor  start  fine  when  warm ?    If  so, it  is  not  getting a rich enough  mix to  start  cold due  to  one of the reasons  I  mentioned..  Not  starting hot or  cold  without  choking with your  hand  could be  several  things , including the  float  level  set too  low  so  the  carb doesn't  fill  with  gas to the  proper  level.

      I have a 01 blaster kickstart won’t work but bump start does work

      So this '02 Taurus with only 87k miles on her starts right up every time multiple times a day except for twice in the last 3 weeks. The first time was 3 weeks ago and the second was today. It happened the same both times. Turn the key and stop to let the pump prime, then when I turn to the start position the engine turns real slow and sort of in fits. Usually when a battery is low the engine turns slow but in rhythm. During my 2 starts the engine barely seemed to turn and the crankshaft rpm seemed to vary. On both starting events I let off the key and tried to start 2-3 times with rests in between. But then eventually on the 4th try it starts right up just as quickly as a normal start.

      I have No clue as to what might be causing this. Only thing I know to do is, next time it does this to put a voltage meter on the battery to see if it's weak. Actually though, because both events the engine ended up starting up like normal that would indicate something other than the batt. Electrically this car is a little odd though. The interior light never comes on when the doors are opened, for years, and then last week it comes on twice when one of the rear doors is opened.

      Installed new battery was told that’s what was wrong when hit start button I hear 1 click then nothing?  Can the battery just not have enough amps to crank the starter the first time ? I trickle charged it overnight thought it was enough!

      Pushing the start button the engine turns and will forever without starting. But if I use the kick start it will start with one or two kicks everytime, any idea as to what is going on. New good battery and coil, I'm ready to try anything. It's a great bike, but this is getting anoying. Thank you.

      Last time I installed a remote start system it was on an old Dynasty whose wiring was too delicate to work on really. A couple weeks after installation it started ok but a ton of white smoke came from under the dash. I uninstalled the entire system and everything was fine after that.

      So in picking out a starter for this '02 Taurus I want something simple that will work with this car well. The start systems I'm seeing are generally designed to do door locking and unlocking, trunk release, etc. As this car already has those functions on a fob I won't be using any function on any future remote start system other than the remote start.

      Can anyone with knowledge of my car recommend a decent but low cost / low extra functions start system that would work well with my Taurus?

      Thanks
