02 sv cranks as soon as battery is connected changed starter solenoid still same issue any ideas had bike 4-5 years just started
This sounds like bad battery to me. Maybe.I tested the switch it works let's power thru when pushed and stops battery died once last season this started outta nowhere always fired up pretty easy
Excessive current through the relay contacts welds the contacts closed.Any ideas why it would mess up a new one wanna get to the source
After removing the plug did the replacement relay test bad?Any ideas why it would mess up a new one wanna get to the source
This.Try this. Unplug the 4-position plug from the starter relay. This will guarantee the starter relay is not energized. If the starter motor still cranks when the battery is connected, then 100% the starter relay (even if it has been replaced) is shorted.
Did that still cranks this is 3rd solenoid have had this bike long time this never happened any clue the causeThis.
Try this. Remove the starter relay from the bike. With the relay on the bench, connected to nothing, measure the resistance between the heavy lugs (large lugs in the image below). Test all three relays. What do you measure?Did that still cranks this is 3rd solenoid have had this bike long time this never happened any clue the cause
