wierd starter short

Recommended Posts

When trying to start my 06 DRZ S, sometimes it acts like the red starter button is not out, when it really is. I push the start button, and nothing happens, I toggle the red button a few times, and then it decides to start. I noticed that my high beam light on the dash goes off when pushing the red start button, but no starter. What gives, maybe a short in the red button circut i guess.

Trace the wires and find out but I'd say you have a short somewhere, possibly on the ground.

Mine does that (lights go out) when I press the starter but don't have that clutch pulled in properly ... maybe check your clutch safety switch ... it can easily pop out.

Or just short the clutch switch "closed" like many recommend doing anyways.

I always thought the lights going out was like most starter systems where all power was diverted to the starter motor.
