I have a polaris sportsman 500 4x4
new solenoid, starter, battery hooked to jump box,
when i push button it i get nothing! not even a click.
I'm not sure what problem i have. The headlights and taillights work. the pod on the handle bars will tell tell you when the high beams are on and if it is in reverse, (but no neutral light, i think the neutral light is just blown though) I said all that to ask if the push to start button could be the only thing wrong with the stop/kill/handlebar switch, thus not allowing any cranking action??? feelin like rose on that floating door.... help help

Easy things first: Did you remember to hook up the lil wire on the solenoid, so that it will work?
Battery lead hooked on the correct terminal on solenoid.
Try bypassing the solenoid just to see if the starter isn't defective .

Have you tried hooking the little wire from the solenoid straight to battery power?
Edit: sorry 4getful2 i had not seen that you had already asked that.
