Arctic Cat 300 Does Not Turn Over

Recommended Posts

Hello, how are you'ns doing? I'm in the process of tearing my Kawasaki Bayou down to fix a rattling noise and an oil leak. I'll probably be asking questions about this project. My step-son has an Arctic Cat 300, he was riding yesterday and when he turned it off it was running fine, but it won't do anything. The lights come on but it won't turn over or anything. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be wrong? TIA

Check your ignition fuse first, then check to see if you have voltage to the ignition switch and when you turn the key to the on position that it closes.

There is a 10 amp fuse, in the fuse box,that blows every time you turn the ignition on. I can't find the main fuse that's supposed to be by the battery, but could the starter relay cause that 10 amp fuse to blow? TIA

The most common issue with a Cat quad blowing the IGN fuse as soon as you turn the key on is a rubbed wire in the harness. I would need the year, make & model to pull up the exact wiring diagram for the machine.

Typically the IGN fuse powers a few things, like the 4X4 actuator, temp sensors, and such. You can try disconnecting a few items to see if that is it. Unplug the starter relay (just the smaller connector) but I doubt that is it. shorts in the 4 x 4 actuator are known, disconnecting it and trying a fuse is worth while to do.

Common areas for wires to rub through are around the steering column and front part of the quad where wires run down vertically on the frame.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.
