I am rebuilding a 1997 Xplorer 400. I have a new battery and installed a new starter. Can't seem to get any voltage to both sides of the solenoid. Have 12.6 volts at battery and same at top of solenoid where battery cable attaches. Other post has very little power. No clicks when starter button is pushed.

What is the order of checking voltage to see where my issue lies?

Make sure the solenoid is grounded. The attachment bolts will often rust and lose ground. You can check it quickly by using a jumper wire to ground it for testing.

I will check that out. Thanks for the reply. The used machine I bought was obviously dunked in a huge mud puddle on several occasions. I have power to the top post but nothing on the bottom one.
