Im in the middle of trying to winterize my boat and i cant get my motor to turn over. All i can get is a loud click everytime i turn the key. Everything is hooked up and the battery is charged. I cant figure out whats wrong! Can anyone help?

Motor in gear just a little bit?

I will say when my stater went thats what my motor sounded like. Just a click when I turned the key. That would be very odd for it to happen now though.

Im going with throttle lever not locked in neutral totally. Hopefully its that simple.

Not in neutral all the way is my guess too. It happens to me occasionally.

I don't think you'd be hearing a loud click if it was in gear.

I'd first look to see if your bendix is jamming on the flywheel.

Next step is clean the connections at the battery. If that doesn't work I'd check the ground connection on the engine and + connection on the solenoid then the + on the starter.

Frank is right, if you hear a click it's not the neutral safety switch. Check the connections as suggested and use a 12v test light to check voltage going to and leaving the solenoid.
