2006 ranger will start then die, then it will not start at all. We have changed the battery, checked the cellinoid, and tried to find the fuse box.

I am guessing you mean the starter motor isnt turning over like lack of power, have you tried the alternator?

3 year old Toro Z4200 time cutter Z, 19 HP Kohler, engine runs great, new battery, new solenoid, with the seat sensor connected or by-passed, STILL WONT start off the key switch. Clicks at the kill relay....

My tractor is doing the exact same thing now. Did you ever get this problem figured out? I figure it to be a grounding problem, a short, or this "kill relay" problem.

When i go to stari my bike it doesnt turn over i

If it doesn't turn over when you push start, but it does if you wiggle the key back and forth, it's probably the ignition switch. Try to isolate the problem by only doing one thing at a time, such as wiggling the key while it's in the on position, or pushing start several times. It might be the starter motor too, but that seems a less likely possibility if turning the key back and forth fixes it temporarily. The way to make sure would be to jump the ignition switch all together (hotwire it) to see if it always starts then. You should be able to find a wiring diagram to show you how to do this.

Pullcord violently retracting on Craftsman lawnmower

It is possible that the 'dogs' that engage the crankhaft were stuck in the out (engaged position). Once the engine started, it wound the rope in the opposite direction until the dogs slipped and retracted. Romve the top cover that includes the pull start unit. Check for smooth and sticky free operation while pulling on the cord. Try using a very light oil to lube if nessesary.

Won't start after storeage

does your motor turn over or is battery dead. think you have to pull brake lever to actuate starter. if it does turn over and doesn't start. try draining carb. and to get some fresh fuel in the carb and try again. if not you may need to clean carb.

What does the F1 red light mean on a 2006 kawasaki VX636R motorcycle?

It's not F1 the light is FI F as in Fuel and I as in Injection.
This light should come on for a moment when the key is turned on and then go off.
