Have 2001 Polaris Sportsman 400. Batt. fully charged. Will start by pulling but will not start with the battery.


Hey Dave, will the starter turn the engine over at all?? Just because the battery is showing 12V+ does not mean it has any amperage (amperage is what starts your engine - NOT voltage)
Your battery may be getting old... take it to O'Reilly's, AutoZone, or your local battery shop and have the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) checked, then you will know the real condition of your battery.
Once you do this, if it still won't crank, reply back to me on here.

2015 Polaris Sportsman ETX. I have to turn the key over repeatedly for it to start & as soon as I let off the key, it shuts off again. If I hold the key in the "crank" position the engine will stay on


I would say based on information that the ignition switch is faulty,worn, or broken and would need to be replaced. Just to double check , it should remain in the acc position and not go back, doubt it would be financially or otherwise attempt to do a repair.

2009 Ranger 500efi. I changed starter and starter Bendix. It's like something not releasing after it starts, I shut it of and it still turns over. Sometimes after it starts it's got a odd noise


Turn over is the process that an engine makes when it is trying to start. If you twist the key and get nothing then it wont turn over. Google shimming a starter and watch the vids.

Hey Randy,
Sounds like the battery needs to be replaced. Take the battery to O'Reilly, Autozone, Advance Auto and have the CCA, (Cold Cranking Amps) checked..(load test).. this will tell you whether the battery is good or not. When you get a new battery.. make sure the connections are clean and tight..put a little heavy grease on the connections to prevent corrosion. This should fix your problem.

1996 Polaris Sportsman 400 Will Not Start


If your atv has been sitting this long, the carb is probably stopped up internally... take the carb to a qualified professional and have it cleaned and set...(take a few pictures so you know where all the hoses re-attach)

ALL it takes for an engine to run is:
1. A timed spark
2. Adequate compression
3. Proper fuel/air ratio delivered
