Maybe the battery has gone bad? I know it is a bit obvious but have you checked the battery voltage?

SOURCE: electric start clicking

Check the battery with a VOM while pressing the start button. If you have good voltage check the voltage on the positive cable on the starter. If you have good voltage there you have a bad starter, considering your cable connections are clean and tight. If no voltage at the starter the solenoid is no good. Usually the click is the solenoid closing and if the connections are not clean or tight the current will not make it to the starter.

SOURCE: ATV RUNS BARELY SOUNDS LIKE IT IS EXHAUSTING BACK THROUGH CARB

Check the cam shaft. The exhaust lob is the weak spot. They will wear down to nothing.

SOURCE: Polaris Xpress 300. Won't start, backfires through carb sometimes

Sounds like maybe the needle and seat in the carb letting gas through.

SOURCE: ATV will not start. no power to lights, starter.

make sure that your battery terminals are clean and are making good connection, sometimes when alot of mud builds up on my bikes battery it wont start also try to start it by the recoil is it has one or the kick start cuz when the battery is dead and you stuck in the trails you can start it by this and it should start

if this doesnt work let me no

My 2010 Polaris Ranger 400 has no power.


My Polaris 500 started quitting on me. It turned out to be corrosion on the left handle bar kill switch wiring. After repairing, I pulled apart many wiring connectors and filled them with dielectric (does not conduct electricity) grease to make them resistant to water and corrosion.

Power comes on but engine does not turn over or try to start?


If you get a clicking sound, then it is either your starter solenoid or the battery is low. If you simply get nothing, then it is wiring. Use jumper cables and and jump from an external battery. Go "-" to frame and "+" to the battery side of the solenoid. Push the starter button. It should click and send power to the starter. If it doesn't click then the problem lies with the wiring between the solenoid and starter button, or the solenoid itself. If the solenoid did click but the motor didn't turn over, put your "+" jumper cable directly on the starter motor's external contact. If the motor turns over, your problem is your solenoid. If the starter motor refuses to turn over, then your problem is the starter motor.

I got a sportsman Polaris 500 its a 97 ok I got a solenoid and it a universal atv/utv I got fire everywhere except my starter coming from solenoid


Make sure you have at least 12.5v at the battery. Then make sure you are getting the same voltage at the solenoid. You should at least hear a click. If you are getting voltage at the solenoid put your test leads so that you can test for voltage on the wire going to the starter. Make sure your other lead is grounded at the batt. Turn key in, in neutral as if you are going to start and push the start button. You should get a voltage reading. If nothing it is your starter solenoid/relay or button. If you do get voltage time to pull that starter!

Had new key made on an 04 polaris 700 now it trys to start when i hook up battery in off position


it sounds like your starter solenoid is stuck. Locate the solenoid and check for continuity between the positive and negative poles right on top of it. If there is continuity between the poles in the off position, your solenoid is stuck and probably needs to be replaced.

2008 polaris sportsman 500 won't start, but relay clicks and will start when relay terminals are jumped


I have seen this on a few machines. Start tracing wires. Ground wire from the key is the first on Id check. Grounds on these machines go bad from vibration and rough terrain. Not to mention silt in the water.
