    1996 Polaris sltx and 780 problems

    I recently acquired a sltx and slt780 from a friend. They have just been sitting for several years... outside. Going through them and getting them running. Hoping to make them some cheaper projects. Got the 780 going good. Just going to do the oil block off. Is there anything i should do to make sure its ok after sitting for so long?

    The sltx wont crank. When I try to start it the red light on the mfd comes on and it flashes fuel. Yes the fluids are topped off. Theres no starter or cylinoid click or anything. Any ideas?

    My knowledge on these is pretty much nill so anything helps

    You'll need to open the electrical box and test for output voltage of the solenoid.

    I tested the starter button it’s working. Proceeded to the solenoid. It’s not working. Tried bridging it with a wrench. No crank. There was some corrosion but not a ton.

    If that red light startys to flash everytime you press the button, it sounds like the mfd is reseting.
    Check both ends of the cables. The black cable is known to corrode at the cases.
