Constantly cranking

Recommended Posts

Have a 2013 Foreman 420.  Been sitting a while, now trying to get her going.  Replaced battery and starter solenoid.  Now, even with key off, it is constantly cranking.  Had to disconnect battery.  What could be issue??

Hi. Welcome to the forum. First guess is you got the wires mixed up on the solenoid when you installed it.   Second guess you got a bad solenoid.  Is the solenoid after market ?

wired wrong from battery would be my first guess as well. or a bad starter solenoid would be my second guess..or both !.

Didn’t buy an OEM solenoid, and either wired it improperly or the solenoid poles are different than OEM.

why did you replace the solenoid?

go to the OEM parts finder at Rocky Mountain atv and Partzilla. Only buy OEM parts

D A M N  rat chewed up wires.  I did purchase a Honda solenoid from dealership.  I considered possibility wired wrong also, so reversed them and had same issue.

make sure to check the battery leads from battery to ground, and battery to solenoid, then from solenoid to starter, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THEM CONNECTED IN THE RIGHT ORDER !.
