My rhino wont start

Hello my name is Bryan. Im brand new to this site+ thanks for letting me join.Im here because i need help. I have a 2006 rhino 450. Mechanically it is stock, Ive had it since it was new + no problems till now. Went out to start it last week after sitting about a month and a half. I Turned the key and neutral light , parking break light come on +hear a click.When i turn all the way to start the temperature light comes on and thats it. Starter does nothing. The battery is good with over 12 volts. I started looking online for info and read that if you have 12 volts on the battery side of the starter relay, and dont have 12 volts on the other side when you turn the key, then the relay is bad. I tested it and had 0 volts on the starter side of the relay, so I replaced it. Nothing changed I still have the exact same problem + get the same voltage readings on the new starter relay as the old one. Im wondering is the new relay bad or is the neutral switch or some other switch the problem + causing a false reading on the starter relay. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreiciated. Thanks Bryan. PS I checked for power at the starter when I turn the key and had 0 volts so i dont think its the starter.

By the way, I've had the same problem. Try turning the key on and waiting about two minutes before you try to start. It worked for me. I also added a outboard motor primer bulb and pump it up when its been sitting for several weeks.

My Rhino needs help

Does anybody know how to bypass the neutral safety switch on a 2006 rhino 450 probably the same as 660

Did you check to make sure you had power off the start circuit of the ignition switch. Either coming off the switch or where it goes in to the relay

06' 660
07' 660

i read somewhere that if u hear the relay click when u turn the key then its probally not the ignition, so i havent tested the ignition swith other then the fuse. But I will. I hoped somebody would see my post and say, oh ya all rhinos do that just do this and it will be fine. But I guess thats what everybody thinks when we post our problem. In a perfect world.........

did you check the fuse inline with the relay? the only other thing i can think of is the bat might be low. they will not start if the volts are lower than 12.3 or something like that.
