1998 Arctic Cat300 4x4 electrial problem

Recommended Posts

I just got an old Arctic Cat 300 4x4 that will not start. I replaced the battery and the lights work and the green neutral light is on but nothing happens when I hit the start button. I can short across the solenoid and get the motor to crank but not fire. I have checked the fuses and they all look good. I don't have a service manual and I don't know what to check next. Any help would be appreciated.

It's running like a new one now. The problem was the kill switch and the start button. Both were rusty. Finally got them cleaned, sanded and polished enough to make them work again. I had water in the carb and the butterfly valve was also rusty. Cleaned and rebuilt the carb and replaced the plug and it fired right off.

Tomorrow I'll change the oil and filter and off I go. Woohoo!!!
