Ihave a 96 skidoo touring E I purchaced for my son. If I try to start it with the electric start, it it will roll over fine but will not fire. But if I use the pull start it will start with one or two pulls.
also if I just tap the key a little, sometimes it will go.I have tried different combinations of throttle and prime.

does anyone have an idea what might cause this?

thanks, John[maroon][/maroon][maroon][/maroon]

It souns like your ignition is not working right. Because you said when you tap it, it sometimes works, it makes me think it is killing the spark sometimes.

A good test would be to pull the plugs and watch to see if it is sparking when you use the electric start (with the plugs grounded to the motor)

If you find it is nt always sparking, then just replace the ignition
Hope this helps.

As Kawasakikid said pull the plugs and check for spark while using electric spark. If it doesnt work i'd be checking out the ignition switch for problems.
