2006 Yamaha Kodiak 450 won’t start

Recommended Posts

I turn the key on and the dash lights up, the head lights work... I push the button to start and nothing happens, no click/crank, no noise at all. It will pull start, I can jump start it from the battery to the starter, and I replaced the starter relay. IWhat could it be??? 

Oh , and it is in Park,and I tried the kill switch several times in both positions, that does make a faint click, and sounds like it’s working

If you can jump the starter then the starter is working. Cranking from the push button is not, so it could be the neutral safety switch or the ignition switch possibly, assuming your relay is good. Does the push button work if you hold down the hand brake? Have you tried starting in neutral?

I tried to starting in neutral while holding the brakes, and I replaced my starter relay. Still nothing, no clicking/clanking/turning. What could it be?

Put it into gear, not neutral, and hold down the hand brake. Does it start?

* Cleaned up topic title and added full ATV info.

What throws it off here is that you jumped the starter and it engages and you replaced the relay/solenoid. Did you jump it at the relay/solenoid you replaced or down at the starter? Was it under the seat? Fuses all good?

I'm also assuming your battery is fully charged and you have good connections everywhere with your wiring, grounds, etc.

I jumped it from the starter. Yes the relay was under the seat, fuses are good.battery charged, and everything seems to work as it should except the start button when pushed. Nothing happens, and everything looks solid and good ground

It might be the switch or an issue with the wiring. Do you have a manual with a wiring diagram? Here's one for a 2005, should be similar. There is a diagram. I believe its the push button switch to the ignition fuse, then to the relay and then to the starter. 

 

Look at the diagram in the electrical section

 I went out it took apart the pushbutton housing, While I had it off the bar I pushed the button to see if there was something shorting out or some wires unconnected, as I pushed it, it fired up. Put it back together seems to be working like it’s supposed to. do you think I should replace the switch ?

Glad you found it! That's up to you, I would probably replace it but first take a look at a parts schematic somewhere like https://www.yamahapartshouse.com

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      2004 700 twin peaks 
      When i get to about 10 mph i get a very (tinny ) noise from the right side of the engine / clutch area.
      originally I thought maybe something got caught between axle and skid plate ie : rock and was just rubbing producing that sound.
      I took off the skid plate and drove it and still had same sound.
      Checked the lug nots and they were a bit loose , tightened them and still same noise.
      Took off the what looks like an inspection plate on top of clutch cover and looked inside this apart and it is dry of any fluid.
      Not sure if there should be any fluid in there or not had clutch replaced 2 yrs ago with nominal riding since.
      I do not have the time or knowledge to take this apart and try and diagnose. The only repair areas around here are absolutely terrible.
      The shop I normally do the work are 2.5- 3 mos. behind. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank, you

      Hi All,
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Kodiak, which has taken me to many remote places and hauled lots of game.  I still love it after 16 years.
      Lately when I go to start it using the starter, sometimes it clicks and kills the power in the display.  Lights don't work, nothing works and I end up having to unplug the battery, wait awhile, and replugging the battery ends up giving the power back.   Using the winch will sometimes kill the power as well.
      Battery is new, all fuses are ok, I'm at a loss.  I can start it with the pull crank and it will work and so will the lights.
      Any insights or advice would be appreciated!

      Howdy y'all. Just bought myself a 2004? Yamaha 400 with electrical Gremlins aplenty. Runs good (after jumping the starter solenoid relay terminals with the helpfully included with the sale pliers) but no fan when my wife's 03 Kodiak 400 had fan and the starter button makes it to the starter solenoid but the ECU side isn't happy. This seems to be a lively forum with manual downloads being supported so hi.
      Oh yah, and you can get two Kodiak 400s on a 5x8 trailer... I bought a nice 14' trailer as soon as possible after this.

      Hey guys, need some help with my 2016 Yamaha Kodiak 700 4x4.  Was riding and it started smoking below the air box and then Caught fire.  We got the fire put out quickly with a fire extinguisher.  Many of the wires below the air box got damaged.   I purchased a new wiring harness for the atv and replaced that as well as any other damaged cables or parts that burned up where the fire was.  I also replaced the regulator, the ECU, and the starter solenoid. I also replaced the stater since some of the cables that went to the regulator were damaged.  It acts like it will crank but it won’t turn over.   The fuel pump initialized when I turn the key so it’s working.  I’ve spend $1500 on parts and no luck yet.  Any suggestions?

      I have a 2016 Yamaha Kodiak and find myself with a start issue.. I changed the battery so it’s not that.. here’s a video of me trying and then boost starting.. can anyone give me pointers as to a starter motor issue or fuse or wiring or whatever ?.. I find myself without a vehicle with a tow hitch for the 1st time in years so have a dead and stranded ATV to fix !
      thanks in advance, suggestions welcome
      Guy

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.
