    First startup of season... Help

    Short and simple. Put battery back in after having it out for the winter after installing all my extras.

    Hit the start/Stop all it does is click but not turn over. Doesnt even start to turnover. Just click click click

    I had my ski winterized at a local (well represented) facility, if it makes a difference.

    Battery polarity correct?

    Battery voltage good when you press the Start button? Should stay well above 10.0 volts when Start button is pressed.

    Battery cable ends loose or corroded? Both ends of both battery cables must be clean with solid metal to metal contact. This includes the end connected to the engine block and the end that goes to the start solenoid (the thing that is clicking).

    What year and model is this machine?

    Polarity Correct, Cleaned connections before installing back into the machine and didn't check voltage
