    Default how to jump solenoid

    How do you jump the solenoid to see if it is bad or the starter? I read a screwdriver and touch the posts on solenoid. Thanks

    That will do it. or a pair of rubber tipped pliers, touch the jaws to the posts of the solenoid.
    If starter cranks, then you have a bad solenoid...if it doesn't crank then starter is most likely bad.

    No need to put the lanyard on.
    The only questions that are stupid are those that ARE NOT asked.

    Don't worry about the sparks just keep it a sec longer to see if starter kicks in.

    Seadoo buddy; enough with the "wishful thinking"..lol

    Hey jammyjam; i had that same issue, and it was the entire mpem(computer, brain, etc)....so, jumping the solenoid and it cranking can mean a few things... I was lucky to have a spare $400 MPEM laying around...
    so, BEFORE you go spending tons of cash on a starter, etc... just MAKE sure that's what it is...even if you need a local mechanic off craigslist to diagnose it for like $50...
    i replaced a few parts before i got it going...thats only cuz i had them laying around...

    It happens.
    Find solenoid in electrical box and jump terminals with screwdriver.
    If starter works then its the solenoid. Usually
    Check wire from switch. May be came off?
