    solinoid problems

    Hey my 2003 polaris genesis 1200 wouldnt start this season. the solenoid would just click. I took the starter out and got the bearing repacked and replaced the solenoid but when i try to start it, the solenoid just chatters. Any ideas of whats wrong?

    sounds like low voltage, or bad connection. check ALL your battery cables.

    +2... Sounds like a weak battery.

    I'm pretty sure it's not the battery I put a volt meter on in and it's pulling 12 volts. I'll try a new battery though

    A weak battery will show 12 volts with no load on it just sitting there. It's when a load is put upon it... ie turning the starter... that it drops too low of voltage.

    Take your battery to any auto parts store and they can test it for free to know for sure.
