Z570 help!!

I have an 05 Z570 and my electric start won't work.. It's not the battery or the coil.. I believe it is the little relay or whatever that is located in the very front of the sled.. I don't know what that module is called to look up online so I can order the part does anyone know what it is?? IT has like 4 or 5 wires going into it... thanks!

That would be the solinoid. If you jump across the large posts will it start? Auto parts store will have to replace it!

Have you checked the fuse? (#31 - 7.5 amp ) The part you're asking about is the solenoid.

battery has at least 12.5 volts.

Follow the wiring harness down from the ignition switch. The fuse with be located in a fuse holder like in the thumbnail I attached to my 1st post. Solenoids do click when they are working, if it doesn't click, then you have a problem.

If the solenoid will click but not spin the starter and the starter will spin when the solenoid terminals are jumped, then the problem is either the solenoid is junk or you have a connection issue between the solenoid and the starter.
