Hey...I just finished washing my 03 650s and now it wont start. When i turn the key, all the lights work, but the fuel pump is not doing its little buzzing thing. When I hit the starter there is nothing.

I'm stuck at work (have no hose at home) so any suggestions would be great

Thanks.

Hey guys.....

I've figured out the problem.....its that i am an idiot.

The kill switch was off. ;D

I NEVER use the kill switch and must of hit it in the washing process.

Thats pretty funny...should not of had so many beers last nite.

feel free to poke fun of my lack of mental ability.

"I've figured out the problem.....its that i am an idiot."

I always find this a useful first principle when constructing any problem-diagnosing/solving algorithm relating to my SV, my car, my home's mechanical systems and/or my relationships with others.

Congratulations. Ride well and be happy.

No Need to poke fun now, you took all the fun out of it ;)

It takes a pretty good bit of self confidence to pony up and say that they are at fault instead of making up something and blaming that. So plus one to you for giving me a good smile and a laugh on a crappy day.

+1 to checking for a loose nut behind the bars, a lesson re-learned frequently. I always check the human factors first: "is it plugged in?", "is there gas in the tank?", "Did I really do what I meant to?". The nice thing about operator error is that it's usually easy to fix!

Yes, but then you've turned a simple stuck throttle into a blown engine...

I wasn't done posting ;D

Follow my last post with "...and then hit the kill switch."

Logically, if you hit just the kill switch, you could end up with a rear tire slide without pulling in the clutch first.

That would be the way to do it (clutch in, engine off). Hopefully we'll never have to deal with this problem...I have, and it ain't fun!.
