sportster lx ignition left on all winter, wont start.


Recommended Posts

So feeling pretty stupid right now... left the ignition in the on position all winter, battery on a trickle charger. Aside from my hour meter being through the roof now, it wont start. I replaced the starter after it tested bad. I also replaced the ignition switch because i had problems with it last year. Now i turn the key and get one click then nothing. Battery reads 12.8 volts... any ideas? You guys have always been so helpful... i just want my boat to start again!

Does the coil look ok?

In the situation you describe, I would think that the coil over heated.

Of course, even if the coil is bad, that's not why the engine won't crank now.

Replace the starter relay, had a similar problem with my Response after the key was left on.
