Hey guys,
So our 2003 Arctic Cat 660 Touring 4stroke will not start again.... heres the thing. We just got her serviced at the end of last year. New high-performance battery put in and everything checked out. We had this problem last year, the thing was completely dead, but it turned out the solenoid was shot, so we got a new one of those so it was working fine. We charged up the battery this week, got everything ready, turned the key and the light went on strong and full beam, the garages all came on, and when we went to start it...nothing. barely even a click. completely done. The battery is fully charged, the connection is tight, the lights and gauges are on getting a strong reading from the battery, but the thing is just dead. I have no idea if the solenoid could be bad again or not. This is the third year this has happened but we thought we have fixed it. Any ideas would be great hopefully we can get it going before the snow starts. Thanks so much

Nope thats not it. When you turn the key you can hear the fuel pump engage but when you try and turn it on the starter motor doesn't even tick it's like its not even there it seems like it could be something electrical shot we are gonna give the fuse box a look

Have you tried jumping directly to the starter (bypassing the solenoid)?

Find out how much it would cost to get a recoil starter installed. If you really want to keep the electric start, bring it back to the dealer and tell them it's malfunctioning again.

Definitely sounds like another solenoid to me. I'd have them figure out why they keep going bad.

Yah we're bringing it in tomorrow. Exactly PolarisindySKS you can't get recoil starter's for these sleds. This isn't the turbo but still you can't get one installed. We took out all the fuse's and electrical plugs and got them tested at the local shop and everything was in top shape. It's hard to imagine the solenoid has gone bad again seeing as we just put one in at the end of last winter...like speeddemon383 said there must be something making them go bad so quickly....
