Push button start will not work.

Hey everyone I'm new to the site.

So here goes: All I get is a clicking noise from the solenoid near the the battery. I did some research and found that I should clean all the terminals that relate with the starting system. I did all of that! I still get a clicking noise from it. The battery is fully charged. The kick start works. I also found that if you take a screwdriver and touch the top post of the solenoid it tries to start which it attempted to. Would I need to replace the solenoid? Please help!! Thanks.
plus I usually do a lot of riding through water and mud so I don't know if this could be another reason.

I have a 1996 Honda TRX300 (fourtrax)

Okay by that I have the key on and I am touching the post and it starts. I did not do it while the key is off. If I kick start it, it runs like a champ, if I try to push start it fails due to the clicking noise.
Awesome I will check this tomorrow! What your saying is lagit. Right now i assume it is the solenoid so I'll just order one.
Thanks for all the info. Very helpful it was!
You're welcome. Yeah, it's more than likely going to be the solenoid.[/QUOTE]

You're absolutely right! I ordered one and slapped it in today and it starts right up! Wish I had it today and yesterday while I road all day!
