    Starter problem

    I have a 2006 RXT & it sometimes takes several tries hitting the switch to get the starter to kick in. Sometimes I hear a click. I'm thinking it is the solenoid. What is the best way to test it & is this a common thing to happen on the 215 hp engines?

    If your batery tests good then it is more than likely your sollenoid. Try the search functon there are quite a few threads on this

    I had an 05 that did the same thing...clicks clicks then finally kicks over...slowly got worse.

    Just change the solenoid out, 10 min job and no more clicks.

    click - a terrible sound while out on the middle of the water or floating at the docks.

    before buying a solenoid check the connections on the starter as salt can sometimes cause a high resistance. if solenoid and connections are good pull the starter apart and check the brushes and armature.
