    TreK blows solenoid 30amp fuse

    I seem to be having the dreaded hot start problem on a Trek I just bought privately... anyway. Having the waited the obligatory 20 mins for it to cool down, started the engine again no probs. Putting on my gear with engine running, only for it cut out dead, no electrics.... Found 30 amp fuse on solenoid had blown.

    Obviously a short somewhere... anyone had similar experience? I have checked and cleaned all related cables and connectors and not had the prob since. Apart from the hot start issue..... I'm checking the other threads on that one. God what have I bought.....

    just had that with mine blown fuse a couple of times and what sounds like hot start problems. Just got it back from the Rustmaister and it turnrd out to be the starter motor shorting out now and again and blowing the fuse and also being sluggish to start.
    So try a new starter its cured mine, just been for a mega blast and still love this bike

    Hi ExjapSteve
    Thanks for the advice. I contacted the dealer that originally sold this Bike> they were really helpful. Seems like you are right about the starter motors. This bike has had two replacements, the new gear and alternator. Might down to getting beefier power leads to the starter - reduced impedance - greater power to the starter. Next stop Halfords!
    Cheers joe

    2007 - March think. So it might be worth getting yours checked out if it's that sort of age Slip! Check with your dealer, or if you bought second hand find the original dealer (number plate?) and ask for service history. cheers
