    96 Polaris SL700 will not start

    I know i have a battery problem so I hooked a 12V booster directly to the cables. When I attempt to start I get a loud clicking noise from the black box that sits on top of the battery. Any ideas? It will not turn over.

    The start solenoid may have gone bad, or the starter motor cable needs cleaning, or there is a problem with the starter motor itself.

    Open up the electrical box, and use a screwdriver to short the two heavy terminals together. There will be sparking, so use a firm hand. If it cranks, then the solenoid is bad.

    You will find a lot of common issues have already been covered. The Search feature will lead you to much of it, and have a look in the Technical Polaris sections.

    More good info here;

    Thanks. If I find that it is bad where is the best place to get replacement parts for it since Polaris is out of the PWC business.

    Polaris is not making new PWC, but new parts are still generally available.

    Good used parts are also available
