I bought a 2001 Yamaha roadmaster silverado 1600 yesterday. At the guys house it fired up fine. I went back a couple of hours later and bought it. I fired it up and drove it about 30 miles home. Everything seemed fine. After I was home a couple of hours I was going to go for a ride and went to start it... nothing! No electrical power. No lights, no gauges, no nothing. I am not sure what is wrong. I haven’t been able to locate the electrical fuse box yet. Do any of you have an idea what could be wrong or where the fuse panel may be? Thanks

  • It could be a loose connection on a battery terminal, check to make sure those are tight before you look at anything else. – GdD May 20 '19 at 10:53
  • Did you leave the lights on? All too easy on a new ride... Check the battery voltage. – Solar Mike May 20 '19 at 10:59
  • I did. It is tight. And the battery is charged and good. – user49137 May 20 '19 at 10:59

    I figured it out. Starter relay. I replaced it and it started for about two seconds and stopped. Now it will turn over but will not start again. Ugh!!!! – user49137 May 21 '19 at 10:43

Got it figured out. New starter relay failed. Replaced it and back in the road! Thanks for all of your input!!
