    Starter won't engage

    2007 RXP 56 hrs. started having starting issues last summer. seemed switch cover rubber was sticky not making proper contact. would pull cover,grease rubber & it would start most times until next trip. end of season would not seem to engage starter if cover on or off. it just clicks inside starter relay panel. new battery fully charged. Any ideas of where to start would be helpful. thx

    Have you tried the old screw driver trick on the solenoid?

    yeah I bumped it & starter did engage. Talked w/shop that rebuilt it after Supercharger blew. he said very common for solenoid to only last about 2 years. That is why they keep several in stock & 1 is being shipped to me now. It's getting nice & warm in AZ & it's time to play!
