It should be a dc pulse. a digital meter might not be fast enough to show it. get a service manual and check resistances on the coil and pickup in the stator. dont forget to check the plug and spark plug cap.

I keep losing spark and my 400 artic cat will not start. I have checked the ignition coil, magnets, and the cdi. What should I check next?

Sometimes when bad parts heat up they fail. I have seen this with the cdi. Be very aggressive when checking your connections. Do you lose spark after it has been run for a while or at certain temps?

I have a 2000 335 Polaris sportsman4x4 it fires once and that's all can wait a second it will fire again

This could be caused by a number of things - but based on your details - this is how I'd tackle it.

- Test the Alternator/Gen to make sure it's kicking power into system

- As long as it is - move on to the CDI (simple test to make sure it's sending the proper signal to the spark plug)

- Then I'd check the ignition module, spark plug wire, & spark plug boot - yes, the part that attaches to the plug is called a boot and it does twist off of that cable and twist back on. You MUST get it off there to properly test the ignition module - (instructions to check your ignition module are in the diagrams below for the two options electrical systems they came with. You'll be able to identify yours. It's bottom right of that sheet.)

- Hopefully you can isolate it - if not/It's diffficult to cover all choices - but if this doesn't work I'll gladly get you going on the next chapter - which is the RPM Limiter system that those have. It can cause these types of issues as well.

- Test the spark plug out of the engine block by holding it close to the frame and turning the engine over. If you see the it spark oddly then you can confirm that it is the ignition and not a vacuum/fuel air, etc. issue.

The alternator would be the first item to check. Before anything else I'd make sure the system itself was getting the power it needs.

To test your alternator/gen inside the engine/wires coming out of crankcase:

- Set your multi-meter to AC Amps in the 10A slot
- Connect the leads to the yellow & then to the yellow/red wires.
- MINIMUM 7 amps at idle. Only test this for 10-15 seconds as it's the equivalent of a 'full load' and can cause issues if performed for an extended period of time. You DO NOT NEED TO REV THE ENGINE - SIMPLY ALLOW IT TO IDLE AND CHECK FOR THAT MINIMUM 7 AMPS.

IF YOU'RE NOT GETTING 7A FROM THE ALTERNATOR/GEN. THEN THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM. If you're getting the correct numbers, then on to the CDI - this one is actually really simple, surprisingly.

There were two options - a 150 and a 200 - for that model
You can distinguish yours by the number of wires coming off your CDI


Any luck, you'll be able to narrow it down with this info - if not, feel free to comment or reach out and I'll do what I can to get you on the right track - here's the flow chart for your model as well -


All The Best & Good Luck

04 Polaris predator, I bought used last week. I put a new battery and new carb on it. It doesn't have power, won't start, and no spark with kick starter. Dead. Fuses,wires, look good. Any ideas

Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.

Shut machine off then go to restart and it wont fire

if thats all the info you have you need to take it to the dealer.
those have way to many possible problems.
1. bad spark plug seal, dirt fills up the entire spark plug hole especially sand.
2. they have fuel pump pressure issues due to poorly constructed fuel pressure regulators.
3. fuel pump itself
4. if intake or exhaust is modified it may overheat after it shuts off (engines get much hotter after they are shut down) will not start if too hot
5. one of the three ignition coil might be failing
6. CDI may have failed
7. Spark plug might be hot fowled.

No spark lights were flickering

use a 12 volt tester and see if you have voltage coming from stater, if you do, problem will be in cdi, or ignition coil.
