Yamaha Timberwolf Electrical Problem - Electric Start and Lights Not Working

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I am new to this forum and signed up hoping to get some advice as to what the problem is with the electrics on my timberwolf.

The quad is a 2000 4x4 model, just bought it on the cheap a few weeks ago with electric start and lights not working. The starter makes no noise and no attempt to start whatsoever when the button is pushed and the lights dont work at all. It has a battery that has charge in it, so dont know why it wont just run off the battery, could it be a fuse?

I saw a thread on here about electric start not working on a timberwolf, I got some info from that but think this problem may be different so thought I'd make my own thread.

Any advice would be appreciated

Cheers

i'd check the fuses, i think it's an inline fuse on that bike. i'd also get a votage meter and get some readings where the current doesn't show up. you could try jumping the starter at the solenoid/starter relay. if you have a meter, you could also test the battery. a bad battery won't make everything work ...

I'll try get my hands on a meter today and test for current and chceck battery. Though inclined to think its not the battery as I was told it has charge and doesnt even make a clicking sound when pushing starter button. Hope it is the battery though, would make a cheap fix.

Thanks for the reply

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.

      I have an 04 ltz and it started sputtering a little bit while going down the road and I was low on gas so I just figured that's what it was. But now I can't get it to start I completely cleaned the carberator put a new spark plug and coil pack in it and all it does is turn over. It has compression it's getting fuel and it is sparking but all it does is turn over any idea what it is??
