Electric Start not working - can jump start
New here! I've used this forum for several days to get where I'm at through searching but I'm finally a bit stuck or couldn't find what I'm looking for.
Working with a '97 Warrior that hasn't been run in 12 years and I was able to get it running today by the screw driver trick between the solenoid relay posts. I'm still not able to get it to start with the button on the handle bar.
Here's what I've done so far:
- Brand new battery (confirmed 12 volts with multimeter)
- Brand new starter solenoid relay but that didn't seem to matter
- Cleaned ground wire on battery connection and engine ground
- Checked the fuse itself, it has continuity.
Here's what's working when I turn the ignition switch on:
- Headlights work
- Neutral light works
- Reverse light works
When I hit the start button I get nothing...NOTHING. No clicking, just silence. Like I said above, I learned the screw driver trick on this forum today and it started it up. The kill switch on the handle bar worked shutting it off.
Not sure where to go next. I'd appreciate the what to test next and how. Definitely a beginner when it comes to working on these things. Thanks!
