    If the original solenoid is still in there, replace it. They are known to fail.

    Original has black body with metal backing plate.

    New replacement solenoids are all black plastic with no metal.

    Some earlier replacements are brown color with metal backing plate.

    Apparently you have 'good' batteries that are not so good

    The Polaris ignition system for the red domestic engines requires a really strong battery, not just a 'good' battery.
