Sounds like it has a bad pick up coil you need to check for spark after it quits running

    you need to pull one spark plug after it quits running and ground the metal part of plug to the head and spin the engine over by the starter do not hold plug in hand it will shock the mess rigt out of you use needle nose hold gently by the wire if you do not own a spark tester the fire on the plug should be a blue spark if it has any at all red or oarnge will mean weak fire if it appears to have good spark put plug back in try to give it a little raw fuel srtaight through the air breather if it cranks and it will if it has good spark you have found a fuel problem may be bad pump if it has one

I have a 2000 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic and the check engin light stays on...

That means that the motorcycle's ECM has a fault recorded in its memory and you should take it to a dealer to run electronic diagnostics to find it.

Pc won't start

Think your power supply died. Check that out first since they are relatively inexpensive. Or throw in a known working PS to see if that does the trick. Write back with results for further info.

This can be from either a bad connection from the thermocouple to the gas valve or it could be a bad high limit switch.

If you run a jumper wire between the two leads on the thermocouple and the units runs then you may need to replace the High limit Switch.
If that does not solve the problem then clean the end of the thermocouple lead that goes into the gas valve.

Sorry to read about your heater problem.

If the furnace starts up and you feel heat,then yes you may have a high limit issue. if you dont feel heat, then you may have a glow rod issue.

Why do the computer shout off after two min: 's of running is something wrong with the power cord or what whats happening

Generally, if a system runs for a short period of time then shuts down, it is a Hardware issue (Usually overheating or bad RAM)
