Thread: Just clicking

  1. #1

    Just clicking

    Went to start my 97xp today and nothing. Battery is fully charged. I got the two beeps but when you hit the ignition all you get is a click. Any ideas?

    Maybe a bad starter or the cable that goes from the relay to the starter!

    Is the relay in the front in engine bay or in the back with battery?

    If your ski is the XP on your avatar,then the relay is at the front left black box.You can find it easy just follow the red wire from the starter to the box!

    So I used a screwdriver across the starter relay and it does nothing, that mean the relay is bad?

    Nope,cable or starter is bad!Get a good wire(like those we have to jump start a car) and put it on the starter on the 10mm nut and the other to the batterys + pole.If it turns you have a bad cable,if not you have a bad starter!

    My bets are on the bad starter... get a rebuild kit and replace the brush plate. Cumbersome but worthwhile project.
