Hi Steve, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.

SOURCE: no spark

It sounds to me like the repair shop has connected the ignition wire ( the wire going to the + side of the coil ) to the wrong switch terminal. Take a volt ohm meter and connect the ground wire to the negitive ( - ) side of the battery and expose the ignition switch terminals. With the switch in the OFF position check for volatge on all the terminals. Make note of any terminals showing a 12 volt reading. That is probably the feed line from your battery. Turn the switch to the ON or RUN position and check for a terminal other than the one which gave you a reading before. note and mark this terminal. Locate the coil. There are 2 thin ( 18 guage ) wires attached to the coil. One goes to the distributer and the other goes to the ignition switch. Isolate that wire and reattach it to the connection on the ignition switch you marked earlier...
Good luck,

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try with the sidestand folded up and / or the clutch lever pulled in.  Likewise determine if there is a clicking sound when the start button is pressed:

  • if there is a clicking sound, locate the starter relay. Follow the big cable from the battery's + terminal; it would end in nother terminal of the starter relay:
  1. turn ignition ON and kill switch to RUN;
  2. short the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. Expect a big start. If the starter spins, startr relay is faulty.
  • if there is no click, then the safety interlocks are preventing the relay from engaging. Check the neutral switch/wire and sidestand switch/wire.
It is of course assumed that the battery is fully charged and that the battery cablles/connectors are clen and tight.  Postback result(s) of tests.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

SOURCE: 1982 Suzuki GS850 GL will only run with the starter button held

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.

an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

How to wire kill switch 2006 z21 ranger that has key pad and 225 etec evinrude ?


To kill the engine, you should connect te yellow/black wire to ground ( thru the switch of course)
The easyest is to take the wires at the ignition key.

John Deere x300 series 2009 model I unhooked the kill wire and it started. But now my mower/pto will not engage is there a way to bypass the sensor?


Based on the combination problems involving the coil kill wire and the PTO activation, I would suspect the PTO switch is bad.

I do not have a schematic for the 300x, however I most of the functions are comparable to the LA 145, 165, 175.

The PTO switch is a multifunction switch. It will have 3 to 4 different functions internally. On the LA 175 it serves 3 functions. These 3 internal functions are independent of one another. Electronically they are known as single pole/single throw switches. In other words even though they are all housed inside a single unit they act light 3 separate light switches in your house.

One function ("light switch") controls your cranking system. When the key is turned to Start, power flows from the Key switch (purple wire) to the PTO switch. With the PTO switch off it flow out (purple/white) and goes to the Brake switch. If the Brake is set the power flows through to the starter solenoid and your engine cranks.

Another "light switch" inside the PTO switch controls the Blade Clutch. Power flows from the Key switch, in run position, (yellow wire) to the PTO switch. With the PTO switch on it flows out another yellow wire to the Blade Clutch. A DC volt meter should show 12 volts switching on and off as the PTO is turned on and off.

The third "light switch" completes a Ground Path. This ground path is a totally separate pathway running through the PTO switch. The ground system is fairly complex because it operates differently under different scenarios.

To produce a spark, the key switch must be in the start or run position. While starting the PTO must be off and the brake set. The seat switch does not matter at this point.

Once the engine is running the seat switch plays a part if the PTO is activated or the Brake is released. Someone must be in the seat.
The Kill system is activated
  1. When the key switch is turned off.
  2. When the operator leaves the seat without setting the brake and turning off the PTO.
  3. When the machine is reversed while the PTO is engaged and the back up switch (RIS) is not pressed.

So there are three different paths to ground; any of which can kill the engine by grounding the coil. Except for turning off the key, all other grounding functions flow through the "grounding light switch" in the PTO.

Because you have a combination problem, the Coil kill wire is grounding the engine and the Blade Clutch won't activate the blades; both of which are affected by the PTO switch, odds are you have a bad PTO.

Obviously there are too many complex functions to just bypass the switch. You will have to replace it. The part number you need is AM135131. You can do a site search to locate and order this replacement switch for about $26.00 including shipping at this site: GreenPartStore Parts for John Deere Lawn Tractors John Deere Lawn Garden...

Why dont i get a spark? was running fine. i folded handle wrong. now wont start. hadnt used charger to start before.


Hello,

Don't connect both blgack cables. 1 is the ignition cut-off. Probabilly, one of both cables has a yellow or white striping. This is then the ignition cut-off. You won't have ignition if this cable is grounded.
Check also the cable in the area where the handle folds for damages!

What colors are the wires in a key switch for 1986 moto4


Do you have a service manual of any kind? That, or taking the switch apart are the only ways to determine the colors, and why do you need to know them?

It needs a switch couse it wont shut off and canadian tire has no parts


Machines that won't shut off are 99% of the time a ground failure. You can check the kill wire at the engine (most times black of green) and see if touching it directly to ground kills the engine. if it does not kill the engine you can figure it is not the frame or wiring of the tractor but in the engine wiring. If the engine shuts off when you ground that wire then the issue is in the tractor wiring and most likely the ground wiring to or from the key switch. If the wires are okay then the key switch is the problem.
You can contact a dealer like www.arcolawn.com can get you parts if needed.

Hi i have a dinli 100cc quad bike .the quad will nt start and there is no ignition i have checked the spark plug so can you help me if you can i will be very happy


I assume that is a 100cc, 2 stroke ATV? If the starter motor is spinning, and you just don't have any spark. First, replace the spark plug. If that doesn't fix it, then you may have one of the following problems: Bad CDI, Kill Switch or Rip Cord Shut off switch, Frayed wire shorting out, cracked/damaged spark plug cap, bad coil or coil wire, bad stator. My bet is on the kill switch and/or Lanyard/Rip Cord shut off switch or the CDI. You can bypass your shutoff switches to see if they are the problem by either disconnecting the wires or connecting them together(depending on the type of system you have). CDI's routinely fail on small engines and generally cost about $20-$70, depending on the style. www.solanocycle.com

Apache quad rlx100cc evrything seems ok turning over seems to be not a great earth possibly but main issue is getting no spark i have put in new lead and new plug have checked all wiring starter is...


Check kill switch and lanyard kill switch if it is equipped with one. CDI may be bad. This is very common on small engines. Could also be the coil. My money is on the CDI! good luck. www.solanocycle.com

Can'tshutoffenginewithignitionkey


if this engine is a briggs single and wont shut off with key might suspect bad connection @ switch - cannot make ground - or broken wire to magnetron coil or wire has come off @ the magnetron coil

primary wire needs to ground to kill spark


if engine is a twin and will not shut off when turn key off i would suspect a 2 open diode in the harness from main switch going to coils

here is web site for parts

just enter model and type from your engine if briggs


cheers
