Hi, Kjell and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enrichner.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
14. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
15. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
16. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
17. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
18. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
19. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
20. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
21. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
22. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
23. Check for engine trouble codes.

What os code 12

The FI light on our Yamaha is much like the check engine light on your car. If it comes on it is real easy to check the code, and for the bike to tell you what is up. Just ground the diagnostic wire and it will start reading them out. Mine just had one code, but it will read out as many as you have. Then you can know what to address to potentially fix issues with the bike. There are more than this, but below are some basic codes to work with. Service Codes FI Indicator Light (LED) Problems

My1998 explorer just quit it won't start i got new

The 98 explorer is equipped with a power surge system to protect internal vehicle wiring, what this means is that if there is a short in the vehicles wiring the alternator will disengage. A way to tell if it is faulty wiring is to pull all the fuses out of the fuse block and try to start it if the engine turns over the problem is internal wiring. If not then you have to put all the fuses back.

2004 gmc sonoma will not start after very hard braking

This could be electrical, when you get engine not to start check your fuel pressure and also see if you have spark, this will help in finding the problem.

these trucks are none for electrical connector problems to fuel pump, by checking to see what the engine is missing ,like spark or fuel will help, check the ground to the frame on the rear of the truck .if you locate the wiring harness going to pump you will see groud wiring leading off harness to frame rail, make sure that is good also you can try to move wiring while someone is trying to start engine to see if it is a wiring problem,

If it turns out to be wiring to pump there is a replacement connector sold to rewire fuel pump connector, start with these tests and will go from there. good day.

My Bosch washer will not start up. Last load it ran fine. This one after pushing start it begins like it will start up normal then the Power button and the Start button flash and the cycle timer displays...

Hi. I can help you. THe problem may be in the door switch itself.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Need copy of wiring diagram

There should be a wiring diagram tucked in a pouch under the bottom of the refrigerator.
If the compressor windings show proper resistance, my first guess would be a faulty start relay.
A 3-n-1 start may fix your problem.
This suggestion is "old school". I've been away from it for a few years.
