1987 Suzuki Quadrunner 250 won't turn over

Go to solution Solved by Gwbarm,

Just got the quadrunner. Seller showed it would start and run a few seconds on ether. I ordered a new fuel pump and installed it. Put 2 amp charger on battery and tried to start-NOTHING. No lights come on , etc. Acts like battery is dead but it isn't. HELP Please!

It cranked on starting fluid before you replaced the fuel pump, I would check wiring in that area to make sure nothing got unplugged and check fuses , starter cuytout relay, and key switch, make sure you are getting power in all these places.

Do the headlights work ? The horn ? Brake lights ? The later models will start in gear if you apply the brakes hard enough to make the brake lights go. Put the brakes on hard and see if it will crank.

Then, as Gw says, you should look at the wiring all around near where you were working.. and the fuses etc.


Oops. Just looked at a manual and it looks like those ones don't have a brake light so that test is out.

There should be a fuse holder and a couple of relays close to the wiring in the battery area, you should check to make sure the fuse is good and that power is getting past the fuse, sometimes fuses can get corroded not make contact, even though it looks good.
