2001 Yamaha Warrior electrical problem need help!!

Just bought the atv and the guy told me that the battery was dead. So i took the battery off when i got home and hooked it up to the charger only to find out that it was fully charged already. So i put it back in the quad.

The issue:
with the key on and quad not running, the starter button, neutral light, and headlights do not work. No clicking noises no nothing. When i jump the contacts on the starter solenoid with a screw driver, it starts right up and the neutral light, and headlights work. Why would none of the dashboard controls work, but as soon as it is running everything is fine?

I don't want to have to use a screw driver everytime i want to start it.

which solenoid? the starter solenoid? Why would the starter solenoid prevent everything from working until it is manually started?

If you are aching it to start it, it's not working. Or the wire from the key to it is broken.

under the rear left fender, by the solenoid. You will see it it goes to the battery and then into the wiring harness

Yep, it was the fuse. That thing is hidden in there inside that rubber casing.

I would still replace the solinoid just because you have been crossing the contacts to get it started, probably put a strain on the solinoid, there only like 30 bucks before shipping.

just got a 89 Warrior 2 weeks ago. Im kinda going through the same thing. having to jump the contacts on the relay. i ordered a cheap one on ebay, installed. no change. that fuse could be the fix. already cleanned the inside of the start button. i have power when i hit the switch / tested near handle bars. dont let it be a short. I put on some front brakes on today, back calipers leaking. havent really been riding cause of this. kinda hard to slow a 4 wheeler down by draging your feet.. used to work on the ol dirt bike back in the day, but i diegres. i do have a wire just hanging around in the battery compartment. im thinking it might need to be going to that fuse, yall were talking about.. its coming of the positive side. thanks for the info.
