Try tapping starter with hard plastic ,like back of screwdriver, while trying to start it ... if it engages then you have a starter issue...if not try new starter solenoid/coil

When I try to start my 60" Ariens rider all I get is a loud clattering sound. I just replaced the battery 2 months ago. What's wrong with my mower?


Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

Battery good, cables good, all connections clean and tight, no corrosion on battery terminals?
Try to determine if click is from solenoid on the starter or starter relay. Turn the headlights on and watch them while someone turns the key to start. If they get dim, probably the starter-have it tested-even new ones are sometimes bad. If lights don't dim, you will need to check the start circuit. Check for power on the small wire to starter solenoid when key is held in start. If no power there, work back towards the ignition switch. Check the neutral safety switch-should have power in and power out when key held in crank. The ignition switch will have a start wire out of the switch going to the neutral safety switch. It should have power with key in start, the only time the start wire will have power.
Post back with what you find-good luck.

pull the starter and check it by putting it on a testor or just hooking it to a good(known)battery. If it tests good then check/replace the starter switch and check wires to the switch.

2001 buell cyclone was ridden 100 miles 3 weeks ago,now it just buzzes...not turning over,just a buzzing sound..when i hit the starter button...battery is charged,but everything shuts off when i hit the...


The battery IS DEAD. The buzzer is the starter solenoid not getting enough juice to close the contact inside itself. Check your battery connections and make sure they are TIGHT, charge the battery and see if it helps, if not - you need another battery or a shop to help diagnose the bike.

Engine conking out!


I had a very similar problem when I first got my XV250. The problem was it ran out of fuel. Fail. It only has a range of around 60 miles.

Replaced battery about a month ago. After about as


Could be a poor connection on one of the battery terminals - be sure they are tight.
Could also be a starter solenoid that is sticking.

New battery just clicks once when key is turned won,t turn oven


check the ground to the engine, make sure the terminals are clean and tight on the starter and on the battery and have the battery tested.
24 months ago for a rebuilt starter is about the lifetime you could expect.
Did u change the battery cos' it was getting harder to turn the engine?
If the starter gets lazy (often a loss of windings due to varnish degradation) and hence a drop in power when activated. This wears batteries out and eventually the starter will fail. A lazy starter has that labored wuh wuh wuh sound instead of a faster regular sound
If you odnt find bad cables replace the starter.

Starter problems


well what you did there was start it but the fans still need the ignition switch to turn on all the electronics. for the starting problem, check the wiring from the battery to the relay. or even the actual ignition switch in the bars. see if the button is bad, that has been a small problem if the internal workings in the button get coroded or get miss aligned.
