    Polaris '96 SLX780 clicks, doesn't start

    Please help! I have a Polaris '96 SLX780 and it has been running great up until this problem arose. On occasion, I try to start it and all I get is clicking noises from the electrical box. Also, on occasion, it starts right up. I changed the solenoid and the problem persists. Any suggestions?

    THANKS in advance!

    Welcome to the fourms. The first Advace i could give you to post in the Polaris fourms . Sound to me ur starter is going. Make sure thr wire to the starter isnt cracked and on tight.

    Welcome to the HULK. It sounds like you either have some corrosion around one of your cables, or you need a starter.

    Hello scarrock, I'd also like to say WELCOME to the Green Hulk Forums!!!

    A clicking noise usually indicates a poor battery or weak ground/cable issue.
    The first thing I'd check are the cables going to the engine and/or bed plate, clean and remount.
    Have you tried to use a jumper box just to see if the problem goes away? If it does you know you have battery or connections at the battery issues.
    Let us know what you find.

    clicks, doesn't start

    I checked the battery 12.4v hot & ground cable was tight. Still wouldn't turn over, just clicks from the electrical box. So I mildly rapped on the starter a few times out of frustration ,hit the start button & she started right up & has been all day.

    be sure to check the cable from the solenoid to the starter.
