Low voltage

Hey guys I’ve got a 08 Honda rancher 420 and the starter won’t spin when you push the button. Everything’s clean it starts when you bypass the solenoid with a screwdriver. With the solenoid wire disconnected from the starter I measure 5 volts to ground at the plug and moving up to the line side of the push button on handlebar it measures 5 volts. I’ve traced this wire back to the ECM and tested it and its output measures 5 volts or really close? Any help would be GREAT!

Does anything happen at all when you hit the start button? Does the solenoid click? Could check the resistance of the start switch. I'm not sure if the 5 volts at the ECM is anything to worry about. A manual would be helpful.
