Hi, y'all! I am new here, and I am posting for my husband. He has a Polaris 500 H O (2004) that will not start. It worked fine this winter. The battery was dead, so we charged that, and it still won't start. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to try? We bought this used last fall, so we are novices at this. Thanks in advance! :)

Does the engine turn over with the key or does nothing happen, is the fuel fresh as if it's been sitting for a long time this could be a problem, can you pull the spark plug out and check to see if there is spark, is it fuel injected or does it have a carby.

Hi Milli I take it being a 2004 500 it has a pull start on the side? so even if the battery was flat you gave it 50 yanks or so? does it have any sign of wanting to start? and hey just a thought did you run the fuel in the off position to run the carb dry while in hibernation and forget to turn it back on? sounds strange but it truly does happen.
