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

Your solenoid is bad on your starter thats what engages the gear to kick out to make contact with the flywheel. . May have to replace the starter if you can rebuild it.

I have a honda rincon that will not run unless I hold the starter button in and I need to know if you can tell me what the problem is ?


STOP holding the starter button down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.. Its NOT really running..
My first guess is the starter needs some TLC..a professional rebuild..they are not hard to do.
Diagnosing electrical issues over the internet is hard... I will think on this some more and repost if I come up with anything..sorry..

My Honda rancher ES has a starting problem. When I push the starter button nothing is happening. No click. The gauges light up so I know I have power.I feel like it is some sort of electrical problem


Hey Leonard,
Take your battery to O'Reilly, Autozone, Advance Auto and get the CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) checked.. this is a load test.. and the only way to get a battery checked to find out if its really good.
Make sure the battery connections are CLEAN and tight.
12+ volts will make the lights work.. but it takes amperage to make the engine starter work!!
Do this and repost/respond on here..

I have a 203 Yamaha big bear 400 4x4. The electric start will not turn over the starter. There is a buzzing sound when u press the starter switch. What is next?


...Have your batteries CCA checked...(Cold Cranking Amps) at a battery store, autozone, oreilly's, etc... THIS (CCA) is the true measure of your battery...amperage is what makes the starter turn..NOT voltage.. (amperage pushes voltage)...

ATV will not start battery seems to be ok as lights are bright when turned on when key in on position.


What clicks is the solenoid for the starter. I pushes the starter gear into the flywheel, then the starter motor is supposed to spin the flywheel and it starts. If you hear the click, but nothing else happens, there is a good chance that it is the starter itself. Check the wires going to the starter and make sure that the red one is 12 volts. The black one should go to ground. If it has 12V on it, then it is the starter motor. If it DOESN'T have 12V, then the problem is that power is not getting to the motor.

Got a 125cc Taotao atv for the kids.put new battery in new chain ,fuses all good checked all wires .no probs .cant figure why it wont even try and to start.no sound or cranking .as it is electric star


Your starter is probably out, or not properly connected. Locate the starter and there should be two wires going to it, they both should be marked with + and - make sure red goes to positive and black to -
If you want to test your starter before buying a new one, take it off of the fourwheeler, and hook it up to the battery. (note: this is not recommended by the manufacturer may void warranty. If you do do it.... Hold on to that starter.)

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

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.
