2005 Sportsman 700 EFI - Ignition Issues

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Sportsman 700 EFI that I bought new. Recently this past spring, when I would turn the ignition to start it, I would hear a click, but the engine would not start. If I turn the key back to the off position and then try to start it again, it would ususally fire right up.

Over time it has gotten progressively worse. Instead of just getting the click once and then starting, about a month ago, I noticed it might take two or three attempts, getting a click each time. And then on the 4th or 5th time it would start.

This past weekend, when I turned the key, there was nothing, not even a click. After a few attempts, I would get a click when I tried to start it and after a few more attempts it would start.

So I'm posting this today in hopes that someone might have had a similar problem and solution. From looking at some diagrams, replaceable parts would be:

1) Ignition switch

2) Starter Solenoid Switch

3) Starter Unit

4) battery

Before I go and buy any or all of these, where should I start?

Thanks in advance
