Question about John Deere Trail Buck 650 EXT ATVs

2 Answers

No panel lights

First problem when start button pushed it may or may not start. Then when trying to start the starter relay would just click, click, click. Since battery was old, we replaced it. Same problem. Cleaned all the cables we could reach. No help. Replaced with new battery. No help. Installed new starter. No help. From the clicking noise of the relay, I was able to find it and clean the dirt from it and clean the terminals. One wire was loose, which I tightened. The next time I turned on the ignition the panel lights didn't even light, just dead same as the switch not even turned one. Between the time of the last relay clicking and the next ignition switch turn on nothing was done??? About to give up and take it to a shop.

Had this happen and it was simply the ground right off the battery. John Deere put it right on the frame rail beside the battery and it gets corroded from being in mud and water.Relocate it to a higher point along with the other wires.

The solenoid for the ignition and starter has failed. Also remember the brake has to be applied to activate the starter system.

attempt to start the engine in neutral using a battery charcer/starter on the starter connectors only if the engine turns over replace the battery cables if not; you have a seized engine

Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Charge the battery as not all batteries are charged sufficiently when new to do the job. Also not all new batteries are good batteries as they suffer manufacturing faults which allow them to discharge internally. some batteries are sold without the acid so check that is not the case.. Check all terminal connections including any earth wires.

Testimonial: "This happened once before and was taken to dealer. Rats had chewed some wires also. Looked at ticket and they put on a new wiring harness is all. I put all new relays in unit and didn't make any difference. There is something little that has me screwed up. Like a small ground wire or something to that nature. I do have 12.6 volts at coil. Where can I get a manual at? Thanks"

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.

There are a few directions to check but you need to be handy at tracing wires and checking connections and power points. The first thing after making sure the battery has a good charge would be to check for loose or corroded connections starting at the battery and working your way to the starter connection. A connection can have corrosion even if it looks tight and when a heavier load is applied it will fail. It sounds like there is a starter relay to cut power to the lights when starting. If you can find it and check it for power output there should be power going to the starter when it clicks. A direct wire from the battery to the starter will make sure that the starter I ok.

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.

99 Polaris 300 xplorer will start off pull rope , but just click off push button


If battery has good charge on it, I would suspect either starter selonoid or starter itself. With it in neutral and key on, try taking a jumper wire from hot side of battery directly to starter. if starter turns over I would replace selonoid.

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!

Starter engages momentarily then just clicks


Verify all cables are tight and not grounding out due to broken casing.
Check the relay to the starter, it could be failing. Check that the starter is in good working order by passing current directly through it while its removed from the bike. Put a voltometer on the battery and check that its at full capacity ( volts and amps )
Make sure you have a secure ground to the starter and the battery.
Check the start button for continuity.

Good Luck.
