power to starter solenoid

You have 12 volts on the yel/red wire going to the starter solenoid? If so, the starter should be engaging.

no beeps at all

Gotta narrow this down, you need a good beeper to figure out what is going on. Not uncommon for them to go out. Disconnect it under the steering and jump 12 volts directly to it and see what happens. In doubt, because they can be intermittent, get a new one.
 
I have no beeper suddenly as well. Also I can't engage the starter without jumping it, which cranks fine but then no spark. Probably won't work since you've lost everything at some point, but hold down start and jump the starter.
 
just update-----bought used e-bay beeper, didn't work right out of package. ordered another from amazon growing old waiting for it. decided to start in the front of ski checked every wire cleaned,sprayed with electrical contact cleaner, now starts with no beeper, can't say which wire was problem as i didn't check start until i was done with cleaning. thanks Guys
 
Glad you got it going. Do replace that beeper though. It is needed for multiple warnings.

I've had good luck with the Radio Shack 273-0068 buzzer, replaced both dead or dying OEM ones on my skis. The price for a new OEM or even a used one is ridiculous IMO. Retail on the Radio Shack buzzer is like $15. RadioShack 4-28 VDC 80db 2 Way Piezo Pulse Buzzer for sale online | eBay

The Radio Shack is a good alternative but you can also get the OEM ones directly from Floyd Bell for $17.95, part number SP-1136.
