I've been driving my scooter(BUrgman 650) successfully for a few years and never had a problem until now. Took a ride the other day, came home and parked in the driveway just long enough to open garage door. When I got back I couldn't get it to start. In fact, none of the dashboard lights except the clock display when I turn key in ignition. Nothing happens at all. The battery is fine. Under seat light works ok, and I even attached my trickle charger overnight in case it was battery. Fully charged, but nothing when I turn the key. Anybody ever have such a problem? Any ideas? Help please.

Thanks. Scott

First thing to check is the fuses, especially the signal fuse. If it goes a lot of things on the bike will not work. If the fuses check out good then the next step would be to check the ignition switch to see if it has failed.

Check what Buffalo said but does the underset light stay bright still when the key is turned on? The clock doesn't take much current.

That sounds more like a bad battery. You may want to have the battery tested.

It could also be a bad connection. Check the connections at the battery. If those are good follow the smaller wire from each terminal up to the plug where it connects into the wiring harness. Those plugs are under the tray that the tool kit rest on.

+1, sounds like it has voltage but not current like a bad battery. After you replace it make sure the charging system is keeping it charged too.

Thanks MJRand Buffalo. I replaced the battery, and it runs fine now.
Good deal, you did check the charging voltage after I hope and its ok? Would hate to hear it dies again down the road.

I assume you are talking about the fuse box behind the panel to the left of the main glove box. Find the cover with the work "FUSE" stamped on it. Look on the left side of that cover and you will see a small tab. Pull that tab out a little and lift the back side of the cover. It will hinge forward toward you and reveal the fuses under it.

I would make the fuse-lid secure or you may lose it. See Ledude's DIY instructions- "Secure Air Filter Box Lid"
