    750 SLT Starter Solonoid

    Is there a way to bypass the started solonoid either with another or a direct push button?

    Bypass the solenoid?
    What are trying to achieve?

    Are you trying to diagnose a no-crank condition?

    Have you downloaded the 1992-1998 Service Manual?

    If you just want to check that the starter motor is working, and suspect the solenoid may be bad, just short the two large terminals with a screw driver. Be careful doing this, and make quick and solid, firm contact to minimize the sparking. The starter motor should crank vigorously if the battery, heavy battery wiring and starter motor are in good condition.

    Be sure to check the condition of the battery ground wire to the engine, before you test anything else. A corroded or loose engine ground wire can cause the black wire from the electrical stator to carry the heavy starter motor current, and it can burn that black wire out quickly.

    Starter Solonoid Bypass

    I know the starter is ok because it cranks over just fine when I bypass the solonoid with a screw driver.
    When I was having the solonoid problem when it did start and run the pwc would go dead after a few minutes acting like a fuel or electrical problem
    So before I buy a solonoid I want to start and run it to insure I don't have an other electrical problem in the electrical box

    When I tested the solonoid itself I used a separate ground and checked it with an ohm meter that's how I know the solenoid is NG

    The going dead issue must be something else like fuel. ignition or overheat however it was dying long before it should have overheated

    Anyway I will Put in a temporary switch to bypass the solenoid get it running and see what happens

    Yes you can, one from an old ford truck will work well. I think I would figure out what is going on first. Also if you go with the starter silinoid it will be VERY important that you pull off your seat everytime you start it. As the silinoid will create an arch, and adding fuel fumes in the hull, it could be a very bad thing.
