No Crank? - SLT 750 - 95
I am getting not even getting a sound from the engine nor electrical box when hitting the Start button. However, when I have a volt meter on the battery, before hitting the start button it is at 11 volts. When I hit the start button, it drops to 9-10 volts - that's plenty to at least turn the engine over.
This ski was completely rebuilt by myself last summer. I ended the project - successfully - about the time summer was over, and all I had needed was a new battery. So today, I purchased that battery. After turning the ski over a bit - it was turning over at this point - and it not firing right up, I primed the lines. Afterwards I hit the start button and nothing happened. That's when I checked the volts.
So now my question is, what do I test/replace? I'm thinking the solenoid or the stator.. Those are literally the only 2 things on this ski I have not replaced or rebuilt. I want one good summer out of this ski, please help me out. I've invested so much, a stator or solenoid is not going to kill me at this point. Tell me the procedures I need to take, thanks.

11 volts at rest is a dead battery. Very dead....

Even with a drained battery, the solenoid should click......Not likely the stator.... Unless the ground burnt up. Any incidental contact with the + battery terminal and ebox when replacing the battery? Check for 12v+ at the solenoid when pushing the start button. Measure from the yellow/red and black wires connecting to the solenoid. If you get 12v, the ground from the stator SHOULD be intact.
Check all your grounds. Get the solenoid clicking first, then move onto the starter.....

Put your hand on the starter after your attempts. If you hand about gets burnt it may be starter time. Check your connections to the starter as well.^ yes the solenoid should click^

After evaluating the voltage the next morning, the battery was drained. I took it back, and tried another battery, that was what the store told me to try. I ended up getting the ski to actually start once, then after the battery began to die again. Not wanting to entirely drain the battery, I left the ski alone for the night. I came back the next morning to a drained battery. This ski was completely rebuilt last summer. The mfd is not even plugged in.. What might be the cause?
