2006 Yamaha Kodiak 450 Starting Issue!

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody, I recently bought a 2006 Kodiak 450 and on my first day riding It I noticed the starter would not disengage. I would turn the kill switch off, ignition off, I tried everything but it wouldn’t stop, even while running. I took the seat off quickly and disconnected the battery. When I got home I unplugged the Starter Solenoid and reattached the battery, only for the constant “starting” to happen again. I have already ordered a new solenoid but the ATV wanting to start with the solenoid unplugged makes me weary that the solenoid is the actual issue. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

When you say unplugged I'm thinking you are meaning the small wires from the start button.. Assuming that to be so, the starter solenoid will have it's contacts seized closed, either because the contacts have arced and welded themselves together, or because the plunger that pushes the contacts closed has got dirty or corroded and seized up enough that the magnet has enough strength to pull it in and the contacts closed, but too tight for the return spring to return the plunger and allow the contacts to part.. It needs a new starter solenoid..
