2003 Suzuki eiger starter button doesn't do anything


Hey Brad
With the info you have provided, it seems to point to the ignition switch as the problem. (the clicking you should hear comes from the solenoid contacts - not the starter button). There is probably one wire in the switch that has broken or come unsoldered or other wise not making the right connection.

Nothing when turn key. Bought new battery and fully charged, installed, still nothing.


Hello,
The "ticking" you hear is probably the solenoid trying to "connect"
The solenoid is the round thing that is the first thing the large red cable from the battery runs to. There are more wires connected to the solenoid..the TWO big ones carry the power from the battery and then jump it to the BIG cable that goes directly to the starter. You can CAREFULLY "jump" the two big connectors ON the solenoid with a screwdriver ( CAREFUL - SPARKS WILL FLY!). If the motor turns over you have a bad solenoid. Key does not have to be on, you just want the motor to turn over. NO open fuel sources!! SPARKS WILL FLY WHEN YOU JUMP.
Try this and repost, let me know.

1999 Polaris sportsman 500 electric start & headlights or fan will work,


If you check the wires on the battery, the solenoid, and and your ground cable - one loose main and you're dead in the water - after that - you'll need to confirm that you're getting power to one side of the solenoid and when the key is turned to the other post. - also - you need to check your kill switch that it didn't dive in the off position. If you can confirm that all the wires are tight and you're getting power across the solenoid I can lead you from there if need be

Will not turn over. replaced solenoid and battery is new. Lights, and power OK. Too weak to pull cord to manually start.


You need to try and find someone to try the manual start, just to rule out anything past the auto switch such as starter. If battery is new and solenoid is new then it's probably either the switch or could even be a fuse in the link.

I have a Marshin 150cc four wheeler atv and it when I push the electrical button it won't start I am a beginner with these sort of things. By the way I bought it used


Assuming the battery is good, there is an electrical relay (referred to as a solenoid when in a starter circuit). This takes the low power from a key, or button and allows more power to go directly from the battery to the starter. Assuming the key switch is good, and the button is good, the starter solenoid may be the problem.
