Check the wire from the ignition switch to the small terminal on your solenoid with a volt meter to make sure you are getting current to the solenoid. If not try a "jumper wire" connected to the same terminals and see if it now cranks. If it does, replace the wire

    you'de be surprised at how many times this problem comes up on the riders I work on...10% of the time it's an ignition ( switch..solenoid..wire problem ) 90% of the time it ends up being one of the kill switches..IE the seat switch..the blade on switch ..try bypassing ( run a wire as a jumper ) these switches and see if it won't start.Feel free to e-mail me at trunkizback@yahoo.com

Kohler 17.5 command. will not start


The woodruff / flywheel key is likely partially sheared. Pull off the air housing, remove the starting clutch, to get to where you can see the flywheel key. I bet you will find that the key has distorted. Easily replaced once flywheel is pulled. Make sure to use the correct key when replacing it.

Will not start. Now hear a faint click when I turn the ignition.


check for voltage at starter whe turning key to start if you have 10 or more volts the starter is bad if you have around 4 volts try tapping on starter while in the start position on key may just be froze up.if you have no voltage at starter then the solenoid may be bad.

No spark on my 14 hp kohler engine


Sometimes there is rust on the crankshaft and the magneto can not pick up the signal. Leave the sensor on the engine, try cleaning the rust off the crank damper and then run a clean rag between the sensor and crank. The gap varies but a old fashion matchbook seems to work in case the sensor is loose. Good Luck
