Default 420 wont start

Hey, I have a 07 rancher 420 that wont start. It clicks and the headlights flash, but it wont start. My wife was riding it around in the yard, turned it off, and now it wont start. Any idea what's causing this?

Hook up some cables to it and jump it from a vehicle should fire up if it does I'd say replace the battery or charge it

Welcome to the forum. Weird but sounds fixable, even if it's as simple as Gauntlet said.

Yeah, it was simple. I'm deployed, so it's kinda hard to walk my wife through to see what is exactly wrong. Turned out to corrosion on the battery terminals. Runs fine now, thanks for all the advice though!

Ahhh didn't realize you were diagnosing while away. Glad you and her were able to work that out. I wish you a safe return home.
