Question about Polaris 2004 Sportsman 700 Twin

1 Answer

Polris sport mans 800 x2 twin

The two read why is that come out of the voltage regulator that go to the starter solenoid one is saying 12 A the other red lead is saying 9 A if they go to the same solenoid I thought the two red wires would put out the same amps

I suspect one goes to the battery and the other is an aux power plug hookup. just guessing though.

SOURCE: 1981 Corvette will not start

The neutral safety switch is located in the shifter housing.

Here is a link to a good article on this topic, that would beat an explanation from me.

Yes, it sounds like the NSS is the culprit.

SOURCE: wire connector between stator & voltage reg/rectifier burnt

your voltage/reg. can be tested in a couple different ways check ground res. check res. then revs. bias on diodes you have ac in dc out it sounds like you may have a diode gone bad allowing ac curent to flow causing the wires to get hot

SOURCE: which post is which on generator on a 1975 sportster?

the post should be the same as an original. The wires should be green and tan. Green wire goes to the post towards the front wheel and the tan to the post nearest the engine. Don't forget to "polarize" the generator before starting. procedure is in the service manual. Momentarily short between the battery positive post and the field terminal.

SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton Vanguard 23Hp starter issues

take the starter off and give the bendix a realy good clean up and then splash some oil on it,,,they get very dry and sticky at times,,,you can test the starter uasing some jump leads stand on it though, dont hold it in your hands as it will spin out of your grip
hook the black lead to the caseing and tuch the red lead on the starter battery stud,,,it should spin up and strow the bendix out as soon as you take the lead off the bendix should slid back in if it dont oil it till dose also check the starter relay it could be sticking on holding the starter in

Fuel gauge flashes need fuel most of the time


Gary, Faulty fuel pump sending unit. Most of the forums I checked say this a big problem with Polaris, most say the pump and sending unit have to be bought as a assembly.

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!

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.

Honda rancher AT makes click noise and will not start except manual???


Actually it sounds like the solenoid is working fine. The clicking you are hearing is the solenoid when it's energized by you turning the ignition key and giving it power from the battery. I would trouble shoot the starter. Start by checking if there is 12 volts at the terminal on the starter. If you're getting 12 volts there, your starter needs to be replaced or rebuilt.
Good luck

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.

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!

2012 rzr4 800 will the stator charge at all if its bad


A typical, fully charged & unloaded 12 volt lead acid battery should indicate about 12.6 V. Check the voltage / percent charge chart below:

Volts - Charge
11.7 - 10%
11.9 - 20%
12.1 - 30%
12.25 - 40%
12.35 - 50%
12.45 - 60%
12.5 - 70%
12.6 - 100

A fully charged that is only about 12V indicates a a problem with the battery - dead / shorted cells, etc. You can always remove the battery and have it tested at Autozone or similar auto parts stores if you're unsure. From the info you've provided - my guess is that the battery is "done"

I hope this was helpful - 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
