Start with the usual suspects... pull the clutch in... turn ON the kill switch.... put bike in neutral... lift side stand.... now try starting bike :thumbup


When you tried it in dealer mode, did you crank the bike for a few seconds to get the code? once you turn the ignition off you lose the codes.

I had a problem like that, the connector to the clutch lever switch had come loose.

I'm assuming that you mean when you press the starter the relay/solenoid isn't clicking in or the starter turning?

The "one click" you are hearing is likely the fuel pump relay or the sidestand relay engaging. Still, a flakey clutch switch will prevent the starter button from activating the starter relay.

How did you test the clutch switch? Put an ohmmeter on it and activate it with the clutch lever several times. When the lever is pulled in the switch should close, and the meter should read ZERO ohms EVERY TIME - not 100 ohms, not 50 ohms, not 3 ohms - ZERO ohms whenever the lever is pulled in. Those switches can become intermittent, so activate it several times. If the switch checks out OK, then make sure the wire receptacles fit snuggly onto the switch terminals.

Also, while you have the meter there, check that one of the clutch wires is connected to chassis ground. The other wire connects to the Yellow/Black wire at the starter relay connector. Verify that connection too while you're at it.

I got it to click a couple times the clicking noise is coming from where the battery cables run to in that box to the right of the battery i checked the fuses in there and they are both good.

How did you "check the clutch?"

There seems to be some click confusion here.....

As Chris says, you are hearing the starter relay click. If so, then you are turning the key on AND pressing the start button. Correct?

Also, do this test and tell us the results. Measure the voltage across the battery (at the terminals) while you attempt to start the engine (while pressing the start button). How low does the voltage go?

Have you tried jumping it off from a car battery? My TL does all sorts of weird things when the voltage gets low.
