Testing a Quad starter relay

Recommended Posts

For those techno folks out there!!!! How does one test the starter relay on a quad??? I am told that you can not test it unless it is on the unit??? @ the highest level one could say if the quad does not start the relay is shot BUT how does one test it electronically??? with a meter???

Thanks BOB

Find the lead from the relay to the starter motor and put a meter to it and ground. Press the start button and you should read 12 volts from it. If that is a no-go, then pull off the smaller connection (that comes from the button and test it for voltage when you press the button.

I just recently replaced mine because it was failing. Attached is a picture (from an Arctic Cat) but any quad should be similar.
