View Full Version : Boat will not start!!!!

I have 1989 MC Prostar 190, today (3 Sept) I went to crank and nothing but a clicking noise vicinity of the solenoid. I've been meaning to upgrade my battery, so i did to a marine starting style. After I installed the battery I had the same result , so I replaced the solenoid and guess what, same result. I attempted to jump start using a screw driver from the start termial to the large positive terminal and again nothing but a clicking sound. The starter was just rebuilt in July of this year. I have come to my wits end. Any advice will be greaty appreciated. HHP

May sound stupid but does the new battery have a charge? My guess would be weak battery or weak connections at the battery, starter or solenoid. Once running post some pics and enjoy the site!

Problem resolved!! Replaced positive cable, which had some corrosion. Thanks HHP
