If the sloenoid is clicking then its not the problem.You have a loose wire to the starter or the starter is locked up.

The starter is located on top of the engine directly behind the cylinder. If the wire is tight replace the solenoid, but get it off ebay. I bought one for 19.95, they are 60 dollars at the stealership

My electric start had stopped working. And every time I went to try and start it make a clicking noise. Now I have changed the starter solenoid and the new part makes a buzzing noise.


Sounds like a dead battery , try jumping the starter w a screw driver if it's new it will turn over at least , dead batt or starter solenoid is most likely cause, if your shure your batt is good? Try sanding connections

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.

Troubleshooting arctic cat atv 650 twin, fuses are good but i can not even jump start, battery is fully charged, accessory switch, lights have no power. it ran perfect 2 days ago , I have read the manual,...


I think you have a dirty connection somewhere between the battery and the starter solenoid. Or... between the battery and the frame ground. Or - possibly - one of your battery cables is destroyed.

Don't keep trying to charge it or jump-start it if the battery is fully charged - you're wasting time doing that. Track down the battery cables and find the problem. Use a test light or a meter to follow the wiring - when you find where the voltage stops, you've found the problem.

Why electric start does not work and pull start works


1. Need a new battery
2. starter solenoid is defective
3. starter needs rebuilding...

Does Solenoid click when trying the electric starter? CAREFULLY jump the two terminals on the solenoid (SPARKS WILL FLY).. IF the engine turns over or starts, THE SOLENOID IS BAD. just replace it.
If it clicks when you are trying to start it electrically, use a multimeter (voltmeter) to see if you are getting 12v to the starter connection while you are trying to electrically start it. (+) lead on starter bolt and (-) to a motor mount bolt. If you get 12v+, starter needs rebuilding!

2006 yamaha bruin will not start by push button. Battery is fine, all lights come on but when button is pushed nothing happens


Hi. Depending on your skill level the starting point would be check "ALL" the fuses with a test light/multimeter. Next point would probably be check the starter itself, Again with a test light or multimeter you should have the main positive to the starter - make sure you have good battery voltage and check this whilst attempting to crank. Then the crank feed itself which is the small wire to the starter solenoid, Again check for good voltage whilst attempting to crank. If there is voltage on both then make sure the starter has a good earth by using the starter motor body as the earth whilst testing the main feed at the starter. If you have good main feed and crank the starter has failed. If not you need to post your test results for further help, Jon

2004 arctic cat 500 4x4 starter turns doesnt engage starts with pull cord


The starter has to throw it's gear out using centrifugal force. The speed of the starter has to be enough to overcome the spring inside. It is either a little seized and needs to be rebuilt and greased up, or the battery isn't powered up enough to get the right speed to engage properly. In that case clean the battery posts and clamps well, then charge or replace the battery. To know if the battery is bad wait till it is charged... if it still doesn't engage try again with booster cables from your car etc. and see if it suddenly works fine.

When I push the starter button the solenoid clicks,starter does nothing.if I cross the 2 threaded bolts that extend out from the solenoid the starter engages? I just replaced the solenoid and at first it...


Just because it's new, doesn't mean it works.
This is why cars get recalled.

The iron-clan test of a non-working solenoid is to cross the relay terminals. If you do and it starts.. it's bad.

Take it back. you purchased a dud. It happens.
