    Odes Dominator 800 4xLt

    My 2018 Odes Dominator X4 LT 800 will intermittently not start. I get enough battery power, lights on Zues on but either thru push button or start key the Dang CLick! no turnover. Not sure what cures it but seems like maybe something loose somewhere. only 47 hours on this thing. Any ideas? Thanks, ton

    Seems like these Odes machines have issues with loose grounds on them causing some problems. Check your battery cables from the battery to wherever they are going. Make sure any connections from them are tight! Also check any other larger grounding wires/studs you can see. Is sure sounds like a loose electrical connection.

    Thank you. Good advice. Turns out in my troubleshooting that jumping the starter solenoid enabled a start. I found an Odes Oem replacement solenoid and that helped. Several days later, today, I can’t get a full Zeus display or fuel priming.

    I would charge the battery and do a load test.
    If you have a volt meter you could check the battery voltage with no load and then check the voltage when you turn the key to start and let us know..

    100% agree with this. If they are anything like Polaris, weak batteries will cause all sorts of phantom issues. Don’t assume that because a battery will turn over the engine it is good. Too many electronics on these that depend on good, stable running voltage. Eliminate the easy stuff so you aren’t chasing a ghost.
