    2001 1200 xlt

    I have a 2001 1200 XLT. Had a random issue the other day where when i shut off the in the water, had an issue getting it to restart. I would press the power button and screen would say start but had no click from solenoid or no crank of the starter. After checking all connections in the water and waiting about 2 mins it finally would crank.

    One of two possiblities: Hand switch going bad, or most likely starter solenoid going bad. It is located inside the electrical box behind the engine. Next time it will not crank try tapping on the elect box while holding start button in. If it starts cranking then the solenoid is probably it. They are about $71 I think for a new one in the store listed at top of page.

    Umm the solenoid isnt that old.. just replaced it about a year ago.. so maybe the hand switch?

    Bring out the volt meter and start eliminating the possibilities, that's the only way you'll know for sure.

    Another thought is to double check the battery connections, a loose one can act just like that.
