I have a 2000 Arctic Cat 500 Auto. Good machine with not a lot of use. I notice that when I try to start it I will get a single click when the starter button is pressed. It is not the sound of several clicks from a low battery. This is a single click. This may happen up to 5 or 6 tries before the starter will actually engage. Any thoughts on what may be wrong?

Thanks!

sounds like you have a bad starter or maybe moisture in the starter. when i does it, tap it with a hammer. this should jar the armature enough to get it to spin. if it does, then you need a new starter. if not, check the amp draw down on the starter to make sure you're getting enough power.

Its probably just the starter solenoid,disconnect the wire at the starter. connect a tester to the wire when you push the button if you get twelve volts, the starter is bad if not ,the solenoid is bad. Ive seen more bad solenoids then starters. however if you have been cranking on it alot trying to get it to start then it may be you starter.
