Engine wont turn over, no click when you turn the key

Polaris 700 xp....when i turn the key on i usually hear a click from behind me....Normal i think.....
Well now the click isnt there and nothing happens when i turn the ignition key...yes im stepping on the brake, im in neutral, fulltime 4wd is in the 2wd position.. LEaving the key on and jumping across the starter solenoid the engine spins over as it should but doesnt start....
Battery is good as the engine turns over when you jump across the solenoid
I checked all the wiring connections.
Sometimes it does go ahead and start but never by wiggling or tapping on anything.
It seems to have a mind of its own......


Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: Engine wont turn over, no click when you turn the key

The first place I would check is the safety switch on the brake pedal. Bypass it with a jumper wire if necessary and see if the electric then goes to the solenoid.

Question 2006 Ranger 500 4X4 EFI starting Problem

I'm having the same problem. Turn on key and 'silence'. It will occasionally start, allow me to get a block or 2 from the house,then the gear selector lights go out, and the engine dies immediately. I'm tired of towing it back to the house. Battery is new. Have replaced the ignition switch. no help.
Took it to the dealer -- he kept it for a week and it refused to fail. He replaced the spark plug. Brought it home and it was fine for 3-4 days. Now it is failing on a regular basis. I'm wondering about the electronic module, or a wiring harness issue. Any history on solutions to similar problems would be appreciated.

The only thing I know to try is jumping the brake switch, but I don't think that would cause it to die - just keep it from starting again.

And on my 2006 500 4x4 carb, if you jumper the switch, it illuminates the brake lights because it uses the same switch for starting and for brake lights.

That is pretty pathetic that your dealer couldn't at least come up with some suggestions.

When mine dies it is in the woods when I've been driving slowly, and it acts like it's out of gas - but in fact when it dies the gas is overflowing from the tubes in the carb. I don't know what to do about it.

Overflowing carbs would be the float / needle valve. As the fuel level in the bowl fills up the float pushes a needle valve up into a seat to cut the flow of fuel off. Once fuel is used up the float falls and lets more fuel in.

It sounds like you have gotten some trash in your fuel. It would only take a very small piece to keep the needle open.

Another possibility, although unlikely, is that the fuel pump is making too much pressure and just shoving fuel past the needle and seat. A restricted fuel return line might cause this if it can't relieve back into the tank.

Hope this gives you a couple of places to start.

Mine (2006) is in the front end, to the left of the steering box.
