Check fuses and earths first. Does the fuel pump prime when you first turn on the ignition? If not check relays. ,

Check transmission fluid. If full then sounds like electrical or internal transmission problem. Any check engine lights on? If so get codes pulled from vehicle computer.

My battery is dead every morning, I noticed the compressor from the air ride suspension goes on about every 5 to 10 minutes. Could this be draining my battery, can I turn it off at night?

The air ride is getting ready to go out. You have a leak somewhere in the bags or lines and it's causing the compressor kick on more than usual. The more it kick on, it will eventually burn the pump up.You can turn it off but it will still lose air that's in the bags. I just had all of mine pulled out and replaced with shocks and springs, and it rides nice. But also, depending on where you're from, the weather has a lot to do with a battery losing power. Cells could be getting dry or worn and not holding a well charge over night. Matter of fact my vehicle does it now, need to go get me a battery. GooD Luck

No spark to spark plug

This could be a variety of problems. If the starter is still working and everything is good electrically, this is probably just an ignition coil that needs replaced. Pull the spark plug boot and hold it near something metal in a darkened area (or at night). Try to start the mower, if the ignition coil is good you should see a spark jump across. If you don't, you'll know that you need a new coil.

Bike ran just fine Friday night after riding all day. Washed my bike Saturday morning & now it won't fire. Already checked the plugs for spark-none. What is more likely to go out first: An Ignition...

It is a toss up. You can check the pulse generator with an Ohm meter. A nice dealer can give you the specification. You can test a CDI box with an Ohm meter , it can test good , and still be bad. The only good way to test a CDI is part swapping with another working bike. Most dealers will not let you return an electrical part and there is a restocking fee.

Battery being drained. Maybe be relays

Most likely the diode from the alternator is leaks draining the battery. If you believe your battery is good: 1- Disconnect negative cable from the battery over night to see how weak it is in the next morning. If it is bad then it is the battery no other thing. 2- If it is good, take off wires from the alternator for a night, next day battery is still good then there is a problem with the alternator diode. Hope this can help.

01 Escort ZX2 had bad 02 sensor parked and next morning wont fire

is there fuel at the fuel rail it may be your fuel pump but that is just a maybe

i can help you with your electrical draw problem though; with the batter charged remove the negative cable at the battery, place a test light between the battery and the negative cable if there is an electical draw the test light should be lit, then go to your fuse box and start removing fuse by fuse until the test light goes off then you know what is drawing electricity most of the times its a stuck door switch that no longer switches the dome lights off or small lights under the dash and stuff like that good luck

Car starts, then doesn't, then does, then doesn't

check the fuel pump relay! It sounds like it is one of your relays. If it was an electrical or sensor problem, the check engine light would be on.
