2007 Artic Cat 400 wont start. Clicking sound appears to be coming form the solonoid. Battery at 11.8 How check if solonoid the problem?

test battery voltage when you are trying to start it. sounds like the battery is junk to me. should read 12.4 at least with a full charge.

I had a weak battery but charger on it.I think I must have charged it with to many amps.Now the lights don't work except the reverse light and battery does not hold a charge. Where do I go from here?

Look for a bad fuse or bad connection on the wiring that feeds power to your front lights. Also check for a bad ground.

Until you find fix you can always splice a wire into the hot rear light wire and connect it to your front lights.

New battery, new solenoid.... turn key display lights come on but will not ignite. Do not get a click or anything.

Sounds like your new battery was not charged when it was sold to you. Put it on a 12 volt charger for 6 hours.

Ignition on, dash has lights, won't crank

Well, my first two "guesses" would be either your battery is nearly dead (but still enough juice to power dash lights), or possibly you have a bad ground wire, or bad ground wire connector, somewhere.

Have you verified that there is now power getting to the starter solenoid (i.e.: with a voltage meter)? Is there any clicking noise when you turn the key? Any other symptoms, and did something happen to it just prior to these symptoms.

Yahama 2004 660 grizzle when i turn on the key all lights come on like normal but when i press the starter button i hear one click then all lights go off and does not start

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.

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.
