Hi everyone, good morning...

2006 Yamaha Bruin YFM350A ATV neutral light does not light on dashboard and only starts when you jump the solenoid. I had spare solenoids so I tried it with three different NEW ones and get the same thing.

I also checked the fuse block and the three fuses that are in there are good. Key switch is new as well. I did not test to see if I could jump solenoid with switch off and have it start. Guess I should have or maybe it just simply means that when the switch is on and you can start it with solenoid that the switch is good. I'll check that later.

Update: only starts in neutral and only then by jumping solenoid.

Oh yea... When you push the start button, NOTHING happens. It's like there is no battery in it at all. Especially since the neutral light does not come on.

Any thoughts anyone? What can I try?

Thank you guys/gals,
John

Not sure I. That machine. In general you have to figure out weather its normal open or normally closed switch. My guess would be its normally open and provides a path to ground to close the loop and allow the engine to crank but there may be other safetys tied to it. Here is my advise to guys just learning. ( an assumption on my part since you don't know how to test a switch) order a proper manual for you machine. First choice is clymer then cyclepedia and if no other options the Hanes manuals. My shop is 100 bucks an hour. Average time to trouble shoot a SIMPLE electrical issue is 2 hours. It is not hard just takes time and some experience. For you the experience is in the manual all you need are simple tools and a decent ohm meter. The manual will have step by step diagnostics and diagrams. Even if you have to by the meter you are at least a 125 bucks ahead and that's not counting replacing parts you dont need to. I can help you with general diagnostics but no one can just tell you what's wrong with every machine. It will be the best money you ever spent on you bike
