    4tec SC clicking but no start

    So i charge up my battery to 100% go out and try to crank up my ski and i get nothing. Just a click click click noise like the battery is dead. i crossed the starter solenoid on the top of the motor and got nothing. Could it be a bad solenoid? or something worse? any help is needed. The ski is a 2003 gtx supercharged. Thanks

    Hi,the starter relay is located at the left side of the mpem.Try to cross it.
    If the ski cranks then replace the starter relay.
    If the ski cranks hard then you need battery!
    If the ski dont cranks check the cables to starter and the starter itshelf!
    Hope this helps,
    Dimitris.

    Dimitris gave you some great advice. I think you will find that the solenoid is bad. It's a very common issue on these skis. If you need a replacement it is item 17 on this page of the forums online store

    Thank you

    Battery is gone. Just went through this two weeks ago. Get it tested and see if it is good.
