Honda 300ex wont start starter? solenoid? please look.

I have a 1999 Honda Trx 300ex. It will not start. When i pull the clutch in and push the start button nothing happens no clicks or anything. Also when i put a screwdriver on top of the solenoid it sparks and try to turn over a little bit. Yesterday i did the screwdriver on the solenoid and it started up but it doesnt want to now. Also when i do that the neutral light dims. Can any one please help me? Is it the starter? Solenoid?

Welcome to the forums. Is your battery good and fully charged? If it is, you may have a bad starter or the cable to the starter might be loose. I would check the battery first, and if the battery is fully charged, I would take both battery cables off and clean them good and put them back on, making sure they're tight.

You may also have a bad solenoid, but you can cross it over with a screwdriver like you've been doing to bypass it until you figure out what the other problem is.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

I can't tell much from the pictures. What color are the two wires that go to that plug and I'll see if I can find them on a wiring diagram to try to find out what that plug goes to? That almost looks like the plug that the solenoid plugs into, but it's hard to tell by looking at the pictures.

I looked at my wiring diagram and I don't see any wires that are that color, but my wiring diagram is from a 2001-2006 manual, so they must have changed the wire colors. The only thing that I can see on my diagram that has two wires running to it and is in that area would be the solenoid, but on my diagram it says they are yellow/green and yellow/red.

There's a bunch of guys on here that has the 300EX, so they might be able to tell you what that plug is when they get on here, probably later this evening or tonight. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
