Status update: SXS is going to the dealer this week. Im frustrated and mentally exhausted from this thing and still cant figure out whats wrong. Local dealer is closed today so im going to call them tomorrow and bring it in this week. Once they figure it out i will let you guys know what is was. I have tried everything and dont know what the next step is. Again thank you to everyone for the help!
I have replaced the starter with an aftermarket one. After I installed it I realized I should have tested it before I put it in but forgot. I tested the stock one after and it seems to work just fine. Tomorrow im going to bring the stock on to a buddy of mine and have him check it out and once he is done with it I will remove the aftermarket one and install the stock on again. hope that worksThe way most solenoids or relays work is you have voltage on one post and when you activate the solenoid with the starter switch it travels through the solenoid to the starter. It sounds to me like you possibly have a bad starter or solenoid, especially with the voltage drop. Or look for a high resistance somewhere. Have you removed the starter and see if it spins when it’s not connected to the engine?
SAME ISSUE:New to the forum and i need some help. I have a 2016 Maverick turbo and it wont start. When i turn the key all lights and dash come on and it recognizes the key. When i push the start button the starter relay clicks once and the lights go out but the machine wont start. I have load tested the battery and made sure it was fully charged to 12.8 volts, i replaced the starter relay, replaced the starter. I have no clue what else it could be. It doesnt try to turn over or anything. Check all fuses at the fuse panel and swapped around the relays there. It ran fine when i parked it. Any help would be awesome! Thanks
