Bike and car both dead! :-(

So last Saturday my I rode my bike to the gas station before going on a ride and haven't Havana issues at all EVER with my bike starting. Well I get to the gas station and reset my tripometer, shut the bike off, fill the tank, and whabam......nothin, zilch, no power what so ever. No lights no gauges...it's like the batter is completely dead...need help!!!


Second is that this morning my car won't start....I get lights and gauges and it sounds like the starter clicks but nothing more it's a 95 Honda accord.


Can anyone help me out??

Try REMOVING the cables from the battery and thruoghly cleaning the terminal and cable connections, If you can take the battery somewhere to have it checked that should be done. You may also need to clean the connection at the starter.

Starter draws a lot of current poor connection at the battery can pass voltage to run low current draw stuff (lights etc) and fail to supply the high current to the starter

Follow the positive cable on the bike to the starter solenoid.
Under the cover there will be a green 30 amp fuse, check to see if it's blown.
Either that or your battery burned an intercell connector internally and is toast.
If the fuse looks good bring the battery by and I'll test it, no charge.

I have had this happen. Some light sanding of the cable to battery termial interfaces goes a long way to promting good electrcal contact.

Try wiggling the cables on the battery on bike, odd for it to run to get to gas station and then nothing, has to be a main connection, cable or fuse, if u have a volt meter or at least a test light that should tell u something? on the car might be a starter? if its a standard u could push start if U have to< but where ever u shut it off thats where u are gonna be unless u push it again, might also be weak battery, or dirty connection there again at least wiggle the cables?

both issues sounds like battery/power problems. The car issue sounds EXACTLY like a bad ground on the battery or a weak or dead battery. The bike could be the same but definitely follow the advice patrick gave you...

I'm pretty certain that it's my starter on my car. I didn't have any tools though :-( not even a jack or stands

As for the bike.....30amp fuse is good as well as the others I checked look good too

Check all plugs to the dash. My SV does that when I have a loose connection. Plugs are probably under the airbox. Pull them apart, clean them, put back together and zip tie them. Then pull test all the wires at the connectors to see if they are all tight. Then try.

I am far from a bike mechanic, but I had some issues this year with the rectifier crapping out on my bike. It would randomly lose power and then it started dying while ON the track. Eventually it drained my battery and wouldn't do anything. (My bike had a recall on them, and I have two of the same bike, so fortunately, I had them replaced for free). The other thing I'd look at is the kickstand and tip sensors. I've seen problems with those too.
