2002 500 FIS No Start! Calling electrical gurus!

It was time to give the old 500 some TLC. I ordered a brand new carb, starter solenoid, battery cables, starter motor cable, spark plug, and battery. When trying to start it up I hear a click. It's not a click coming from the solenoid. It's coming from I believe what I believe is the neutral start relay. It's a small black relay. Disconnecting the CDI has no effect. With the key in the on position I can jump the solenoid with a screwdriver and she will fire right up and pur like a kitten. I'm not the greatest at troubleshooting electrical issues. Please help!

Does that model start in gear if you grab the brake?

You can get a wiring diagram at countrycat.com click on technical

Then you can find out what exactly is making the noise. Test it's function with a MM or test light.

It does have the start in gear feature, but that hasn't worked almost since the machine was first purchased in 2004.
