Sounds like it has a broken spring on the starter.

How to change the starter on Suzuki 2006 atv, model LT-A400/F

Starter is located on top of engine cases under carb. Remove parts as necessary to access the 2 mounting bolts on end of starter that screw downward into case. Remove the starter cable, these 2 bolts and twist the starter while pulling on it to work it free from its mounting hole. Blowing all the mud,dirt and debris from the area beforehand will help and not allow the dirt to enter the motor. A slight amount of prying at the engine engagement end of starter may be necessary. Be careful not the damage starter or case.

Starter needs fix

You did not mention the model or make..but most have a simple starting system..the starter ususally is located on the side of the engine facing up for the vertical shaft or front or back for horizontal shafts..two mounting bolts and one or two wires from switch and battery...easy to remove and replace...if you are saying spinning not engaging it is the replaceable spring loaded flywheel engage gearing on the top of the starter...the third would be bad but replaceabke selonoid that transfers the battery voyage to the starter ..just follow the starter sure back it originates at the selonoid...good luck.

Snowthrower starter will not engage flywheel

It shouldn't engage the flywheel except during the moments when you're trying to start the engine. Any other time, it should NOT be engaged so it isn't spinning the whole time the engine is running.

2006 jeep wrangler automatic transmission drifts in park

I can't imagine how the drifting in park and the starter won't crank the engine could be related.
It is possible something happened to the flywheel and it is not now connected to the crankshaft, or the bendix gear on the starter is not engaging the flywheel.
But the transmission has a pawl or gear that locks the output shaft of the transmission when the shifter is in park. That gear could be damaged and would allow the truck to roll in park.
And the parking gear would not have anything to do with the starter issue.
I think I would check to see if the flywheel is connected to the crankshaft first.
Is the truck still under warranty ??

Can a hidden security system lock out power to essential electronics(fuel pump) to prevent a car from starting???the car's starter does engage,but is getting no fuel...ty

yes it can and if the battery goes dead or is unhooked it will disable the engine from starting and your model has the security system, call your dealer it's under warranty or should be and then will tell you how to reset it. Hope this helps.

Starter drive gear wont engage on a HD fxrs

Sounds to me like the "overrunning clutch" is bad. You'll have to remove the starter and disassemble it. The starter drive is part #31663-90 according to the latest V-Twin book I have. It may have a different number on your 2000 model.
