Polaris Ranger 570 Won’t Crank Over or Start

Question

Hi, I have a problem with my Polaris Ranger XP 570. The engine isn’t turning over when I try to start it. Any ideas? My vehicle is a Ranger XP Crew 570 EFI, either 2015 or 2016 model.

    Of course, there are a few potential reasons for that. First, have you checked the battery? A dead battery could lead to no power for the starter motor and thus no engine turnover.

      I did check the battery, and it was low. I charged it, but the problem persists. I did hear a clicking sound though when I tried to start it.

    The clicking sound indicates the starter solenoid is engaging, but the battery might not have enough power to crank the engine. It’s worth considering that the battery could still be the issue even if it’s making that noise. To address this, I recommend check out this part that could potentially solve the problem..

      I cleaned the battery terminals and tested under load, but no luck. I replaced the battery with an extra one i had laying around, but the engine still won’t turn over.

    Since the new battery didn’t solve the problem, let’s look deeper. Check the connections from the battery to the starter for loose wires or corrosion. It’s also possible the starter motor isn’t functioning properly, causing the solenoid to click but not turn the engine.

      I checked the connections, and the starter motor seems fine. However, I noticed the engine doesn’t crank even when turned manually.

    If the engine isn’t cranking manually either, it suggests a potential issue within the engine itself. While a seized engine or mechanical failure is possible, it’s less likely if you can manually turn it without much resistance. Inspect the components connected to the crankshaft, like the drive belt and pulleys, for any obstructions.

    Everything seemed fine with the drive belt and pulleys. But I decided to recheck the new battery, and it turns out it was defective too. Swapped it for another one, and now the Polaris Ranger XP 570 starts right up!
