  1. Thanks for the wiring diagram. Yes mine has a handle to be pulled up near the foot brake but that being up didn't make a difference...the start button worked before...now you hit it and nothing...it has to be a wire crossed or something not right because it don't even click or anything...you hit the button and total silence!
  2. Ok...it's a plug with 4 wires...the relay has 4 prongs on it...that plugs into the plug...what I have been doing is sticking a wire down in the plug...on the big gauge wires...then sticking the other end of the wire into the plug slot right beside of it...on the other big gauge wire completing the circuit and that turns the starter
  3. No...the plug where the relay plugs up...I'm taking another wire and touching the 2 red wires in that plug to make it start. It will start and run good...but that's the only was I CAN start it.
  4. I ended up needing a starter. I got it to run and my son can ride but I have to jump the red wires in the plug where the relay goes to get it to turn over. I even bought a brand new relay...plug it up...hit the start button and nothing! I keeping having to jump the wires to get it to start. It should start with the realy plugged in right? What would cause it to not work...since the relay is BRAND NEW???
  5. I ordered one and I'm also going to get a new relay since I seen smoke coming from it at one point too...it's more than likely fried as well!
  6. Yea...I must have fried it trying to jump the quad so much...I'm not sure what caused this.
  7. It has never had a pull start...was the battery charger too much to check it with? Could I clamp the black clamp on the stater housing and the red on where the wire hooks and use the setting "12V maintainer" I think I may have use the 12v 200amp engine start setting when testing it...I may have messed it up myself somehow. Thanks for the info so far!
  8. It don't have a pull start on it. It's just frustrating dealing with electrical issues. I just want it to run haha.
  9. No one has any ideas at all what the issue could be? No one? Any help is appreciated!!
  10. Hi everyone. New to the forum! Hers is my issue. I have a Suzuki LT80 (Not sure what year-I think it is 2002) and it will not start. I was told the starter is new and it has a new battery. I checked the battery and it reads 12.5V. When I hit the start button all I get is a click in the black 4 prong relay. I also unplugged it and jumped the 2 big wires but all it does is spark and get hot. It also gets hot if I keep pushing the start button. I also unplugged the white plug by the gas tank, hooked a wire to it and tried a battery charger...same thing...wires get hot. Then I removed the starter and used the battery charger on it. I hooked the black to the starter casing and the red to the hot lead on the starter...all it did was spark and make the battery charger hum louder. Is the starter bad? Do I need a relay? Both? I also know about the red button under the plastic. It wasn't even tripping so I bypassed it just to try what I could. I'm at a loss. I just want it to run for my son to ride. If anyone can help please do so. Thanks in advance!
