    Polaris Virage Starter Stuck on.

    I have a 2001 Virage carb model. The owner said last time it was out the starter was stuck "on" and wouldn't stop spinning until the battery died. I put a new battery in and everything seems fine. Owner doesn't want this to happen again. I'm thinking either the solenoid was stuck or the start/stop button was stuck. Anyone ever see this before?

    PS- the solenoid is the all black one. The only metal on it is the plate that is used for mounting. Thanks

    That sounds like the original factory failure prone solenoid. They would fail with the solenoid ‘engaged’ and run the starter motor continuously.

    A new all-plastic upgraded solenoid is not expensive, not difficult to replace. That would be my recommendation.
