Starter location on 2000 VLX

Recommended Posts

I tried to crank my boat and thought the battery was dead. I then tried with a new battery and all I can get is a click noise. I am thinking this is a stater problem? I also would like to know where it is located. I think it might be located at the front of the engine near the floor under another something with wires running to it. Thanks for any advice.

On a direct drive it's back right corner as you sit in the drivers seat V-drive front left Corner.

If you don't know where the starter is, you may want a mechanic to work on your boat. Just a thought.

Should be real easy to find Whistling.gif if you've got any mech experience at all. BigD is right, it's on the front left (as you look toward front of boat) of your engine. 3 bolts (of I recall correctly) that come up from the bottom. And then a few wires (you may want to mark where they go, just in case Whistling.gif ). I also don't know that I would go belly-up for a new one, they are cheap to rebuild and last just as long. JMO though, of course Biggrin.gif

Before you change the starter, make sure all your connections are tight on the battery and the starter.

A couple years ago I had similar symptoms with my 'Bu. It turned out that the lug on the starter end of the red battery cable where it connects to the solenoid had never been properly crimped and finally worked its way loose. A real good squeeze with the pliers let me finish the day until I could get it crimped properly.
