    help xl1200 wont start, no cranking

    love the ski but I'm frustrated with it right now.

    Had it out all season with out a single issue. Had it out like 10 days ago ran flawless

    Well go to pull it out on Sunday get all the way to the lake(I'm an idiot an forgot to check to make sure it starts before going to the lake) an I go to start it an nothing happens all I get is a click when I press the start button...

    I went and bought another battery an still the same issue. Anyone know what's going on?

    The ski is a 98xl 1200 stock.

    Some people said bad starter., some said bad ground.

    But it doesn't seem that bads, its probably something dumb that I'm missing

    When I press and hold the dash buttons the code comes up an it if press aaaa it'll say start.

    So it has power but It just won't start.

    And another thing is when I tryed to start. Last weekend at first it would crank very slowly for like 5 seconds an then from then on it just did that click.

    if you checked the ground an its on tight, then run a wire from the positive on the battery to the possitive on the starter if it turns over then the starter solenoid in the electrical box is bad..

    Bad battery will make a faint groan from engine area when pushing the button.

    Not sure why that would prevent the motor from even attempting to crank.
    I'm talking it doesn't crank at all when I hit the start utton there is a click (as little sound like the sound as like a clicky pen)
