Engine will not start, Watchdog 15K

I recently purchased this unit used for about 10 days when the last hurricane came thru east Texas. It had been running on butane and was unhooked when I purchaed it. don't know how long unhooked. I followed the manual and changed the "carberator" to LP gas and installed the proper regulator. Tried to start, but it would not. Checked the fuel solenoid, and it is getting 12 volts during cranking. thought it might be bad, so installed a new one. Before istalling new solenoid, turned the gas on for a second, so it is flowing up to the solenoid. Still won't start. It is getting fire to the plugs during cranking, pullede one spark plug wire off and stuck a screw driver in the wire, it jumped flame about 3/4". Any suggestions?

    I have already replaced the fuel solenoid. Prior to and after replacement, I have 12 volts at the solenoid (wire #14) during cranking. If the regulator or "carberator" is not working, what should I look for?

    Replaced both of them already. I am going to have my local LP distirbutor come out this week and check my pressure. Just because I put a new regulator in the fuel line, it does not necessarily mean it works. thanks for the help

Its not get any fuel to cylinder the solenoid that lets fuel in is most likely not letting fuel in or regulator is working properly disconnect solenoid going into cylinders jump voltage to it see if you can smell fuel to cylinders if not check for stuck solenoid valve or inoperable regulator!!!Best of Luck to You!!!!

Recently bought XJS V12 with 15K miles; driven only 1K miles since 1993. I drove the car 250 miles the day I bought it with no problems. Since then, it idles well for 30-60 seconds but then stalls.


Check the fuel filter(s). Your long drive may have shaken dirt or old fuel gunk ("varnish") loose and plugged the filter most of the way. Enough fuel gets by to start the engine, but then it starves when you put it under load.

How long would it take to walk across the state of texas


The distance from Orange, TX (on the east) to El Paso, TX (on the west) is approx 762 miles.
Since the average walking speed is approx 3.1 MPH, it would take about 246 hours (10 days plus 6 hours) to walk across Texas.

(That is, figuring a constant walking speed for over 10 days, without stopping to sleep, eat, etc).

System reset by watchdog.tion


I've never seen a watchdog.tion error but watchdog errors can be set up on some CMOS when the 5v power from the power supply is bad.
I can't find anything on your specific error tho but I would try a different Power Supply Unit.

It,s always written DOOR on my lcd oven board.The oven doesn't heat.


Hi, it sounds like one of the "lock" switches for the self clean door lock assembly may be faulty, or the oven door light/monitor switch is faulty. Is the oven light "on" ? Either that or when the unit was last placed in self clean the cycle may have been interupted by a power failure or some other accidental/intentional "cancel" command. Try unplugging the unit and plugging it in again right away. The "reset" should force the oven thru a start-up cycle, it essentially makes the onboard "watchdog/monitor" in the processor to check all the switches for the proper position and makes the lock go thru a lock to unlock position. The unit may correct itself just by going thru this off-on process. Hope that helps, let me know. Good luck

Low oil pressure indication in suburban


Dan,
If your oil pressure actually dropped below 10 psi at idle, your hydraulic lifters would start to collapse. This would cause them to "tick" or "click" at idle. If you are not getting this clicking, change the sending unit.
