2001 Polaris Trailblazer 250 electrical issue

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm working on a 2001 Trailblazer. It wouldn't start and found the top end needed to be rebuilt. Took care of that last week and put it back together. Now I have no power to anywhere. The battery is chargerd and the the cables have good connection. I turn on the key and have nothing, no lights and it won't turnover. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have no power turning the, check the ignition switch leads for power. You'll need to grab a multi meter and start working from the battery out to test for power. Before you do that, check any fuses.

Ok, now another issue. I can't win. It turns over fine but won't start. I hold my hand over the intake of the carb and then it will fire up fine and run. Supposidly the carb was just rebuilt. What should I be looking for?

Thanks!

Sounds like  either  a  needle  valve  not  adjusted  right,    or  a plugged  passage  in the "rebuilt" carb..  Is there  an  "enrichening " valve  or  choke  on the  motor?  If  a  choke ,  is  it  closing  ?.. If  it  is an enrichening  valve ,   I would guess   either  it  is  not   adjusted  properly (needle  valve needs  adjusting)  or the   passage is  plugged.  Holding your  hand over the   carb is  choking the  motor  so  it  pulls  more  gas  in, enrichening the  mixture so  it  can  cold start.  Does  the  motor  start  fine  when  warm ?    If  so, it  is  not  getting a rich enough  mix to  start  cold due  to  one of the reasons  I  mentioned..  Not  starting hot or  cold  without  choking with your  hand  could be  several  things , including the  float  level  set too  low  so  the  carb doesn't  fill  with  gas to the  proper  level.
