17 max xt won’t keep turning over to start

So long story made way short the machine has been an absolute lemon since I bought it brand new. Latest issue is the machine won’t turn over to start. Battery is good brand new. Connections are great. We haven’t dug down to the starter yet but it just bumps then clicks. The battery has plenty of charge and jumping it doesn’t change the bump click then nothing.

Oh cherry on top I have rode the machine 3 times in 2 years every trip returns to the truck in limp mode. I bought it for hunting but spend more time working on gremlins. My outlander was such an amazing machine. This thing is an absolute waste.

57.1 miles on it so far and the local shop that I bought it from has been ZERO help since I bought it. First trip was limp mode return and their parking lot analysis was metal from the break in causing the speed sensor to go into limp mode. They wouldn’t even bring it into the shop. Oil changed twice now because the next trip did the same thing. We couldn’t find any metal in the oil but the shop told me on the phone it will clear itself up and I could pay to have it serviced but they won’t warranty anything. The shop wouldn’t warranty anything because I didn’t have enough miles on it to be serviced. They cleared the codes and sent me on my way. I’m so frustrated lately because it’s like I threw $20k in the trash. I want it to run right so bad and defend the machine all the time to friends and family but I may be done making excuses for this POS that won’t even start now.

Take it to the dealer and make them fix it. If it won't start and always goes into limp mode raise hell with them and tell them to fix it or give you your money back. Where did you buy it, AMDS?

I bought it at river and sea. I have been an AMDS customer my whole life. This is the first machine I ever bought at river and sea and it’s been utterly horrible experience. I wish I waited for AMDS to have the machine I wanted since I grew up riding with those guys.

I have argued with the dealer since my first weekend with it. They won’t do anything about it, except charge me for their time. Not a single helpful conversation has happened in two years since I bought it from them.

The clicking sound is from a loose battery cable or bad starter solenoid . Since you have been getting limp home happening I would bet you have a loose ground cable where it mounts to the frame . Any bad cable connection and the ECM looses its mind

So pretty stupid but honestly who would have thought. Ended up being a dead cell in the battery this time. The battery was brand new with zero trips taken on it so I didn’t check it right away. Thought it had to be something else. Once I swapped the battery with a backup battery it fired right up. Never would have thought battery with it being a brand new one that worked 2 weeks ago. Really glad I didn’t tear it down to the starter.

With as many issues as this machine has had why wouldn’t I be on my third battery in 57 miles.
