Follow the large cables from the battery to the starter. If it is not mounted on the starter motor it will be a separate unit with 2 small wires and 2 large wires connecter to it. It is frequently a source of trouble and replaced for about $10 on ebay.

You'll have to break out a meter and start checking things. could be a starter switch, starter relay or just needed a starter rebuild. also if your bike has safety switches like brake handles, clutch and nuetral switches check all them.

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.

I have,a polaris trailblazer 250. I had to pull start it because it seemed the battery was bad. Bought and installed a new battery and,still won't start. Any ideas....


If it will not spin over, check for battery voltage to the starter.If there is 12 volt to the battery connection on the starter while the start button is being pressed then the starter has gone bad. If there is not any voltage to the starter while pressing the start button, check for blown fuses and the starter solenoid,usually under the seat near the battery, and starter relay,also near the battery.

How do I determine the problem when the starter won't turn over until I pull the rope, then it start AOK until the next time???


Automobile starter repair shops have a test set-up and can test any starter with it. If the solenoid is bad, they can tell you. The most common fault is a clicking sound when not starting, but that isn't the only fault. A common fault is a loose ground wire or short, but since your starts with a pull, then that appears unlikely in your case or it wouldn't start at all. Good luck.

My 2007 polaris 450 sportsman used to start with the pull start 2nd pull,now it starts for a couple seconds and stalls ,does this three or 4 x then starts and runs fine,by the way it won't start with...


Could be time to replace battery, this is most likely the culprit. These fourwheelers are very picky when it comes to low power. Your starter is also most likely just fine, the clicking you hear is the solenoid on the starter, so your battery has some juice, but not enough amps to turn over the starter. Also If the fourwheeler has sat for a long time then you may just need to charge the battery. The 2007 is most likely fuel inject which uses even more fuel when running and it also has its own computer kind of like a PCM in a car or truck. These all need a good supply of power and the stator which is like an alternator usually needs the help of a fully charged battery to keep everything running properly. Also note, once you get a new battery or charge it in some cases the ATV should run smoother.

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!

Hi Lee,

The starter requires substantially more current (amps) than the little wires and contacts that make up the start button and starter circuit. These small wires power a solenoid (an electro-magnetic switch) when the start button is pressed; which in turn closes a much larger contact that connects the larger battery wires to the starter motor.

You may have a blown fuse or fusible link, bad starter switch button, bad solenoid, broken wire(s) between the starter button and solenoid, poor connections at any of the terminals on these devices or a bad starter motor. Check the these circuits with a volt meter capable of testing 12 VDC or using a test lamp. Start with the one probe of the meter or lamp connected to a good ground or (-) post of the battery. The other probe should see 12 V (+) power on ONE of the starter button wires and on BOTH when the button is pressed. If not, work your way back to a bad connection or cut wire. Next, locate the solenoid. There should be two heavy cables and one or two smaller wires entering. The smaller wire is from the start button. Power 12V + should be on it when the button is pressed. If there are two smaller wires, one is probably ground or (-). If no power, check the wire for damage, etc. by following the wire back to the starter button. Once you have 12 V + starter circuit working into the solenoid, go to the next step.

Next, check the two heavy cables on the solenoid. One should have 12 V + power on it all the time and the other should have power only when the starter button is pressed. If you do not have power on one of the cables all the time, there is a bad connection,etc. between the solenoid and the + battery post. Check fuses, connections, etc. and make repairs. With power on one cable, press the start button A working 12 V starter circuit is required for this to work. If no power on the other heavy cable, the solenoid should probably be replaced. If you do have power out, it it still won't crank - check the cable between the starter and solenoid. Repair or replace as needed. If cable is good, the problem is likely to be the starter itself.

Good luck!

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.

Had new key made on an 04 polaris 700 now it trys to start when i hook up battery in off position


it sounds like your starter solenoid is stuck. Locate the solenoid and check for continuity between the positive and negative poles right on top of it. If there is continuity between the poles in the off position, your solenoid is stuck and probably needs to be replaced.
