Since it is a royal pain to close the front hood, I went to add a charger wire so I don't have to worry about the hood, I found the screw on the positive post rusted . this utv is 11 months old. and since it's a Philips head, it was impossible to loosen . had to use vise grips.
replaced the screw with an hex bolt
Hopefully this helps somebody because I couldn't find any info on this runaway condition.
Drove 1/2 mile to the gas station and when I started up to leave the starter stuck on. Turn key off starter is still running~! Limp it home wondering what the heck to do, get it in the garage and pull the negative battery terminal to get it to stop. Whew, WTF?
Calm down and start checking things, starter is hot of course but nothing is smoking and nothing smells burnt. Pull battery cover off and start checking wires from battery to relay and relay to the starter. OK good nothing is hot, nothing is crispy and nothing is melted. Probably smoked the starter though. If this had happened to my wife and I wasn't around the machine would have run until the battery died and probably melted down/burned.
I'll get to the point to save you folks some time and trouble. Because this is a kymco machine you need 2 different Kawasaki parts to make this repair, and information is scarce to say the least. The switch and a sub harness to connect it to the machine's plug.
Everything works now, but the starter sounds horrible so I'll be changing that too before spring.
Good luck out there and hopefully this is just a freak occurrence, but if I were you I'd get rid of this kymco part and put the Kawasaki replacement in now.
Switch, Magnetic is part number 27010-0767
Sub Harness Start Relay is part number 26031-Y034
Less than 40 miles can barely start. Dealer is working with Hisun on a number of other issues on this UTV. Can not get clear info on the meaning of these E codes this is getting. Anybody have some clear info for me?
I bought a 2013 Cub Cadet Volunteer 37BM466D710. It has a LH775 engine in it. Now my issue is I bought it off an online auction and well I got took really hard. There is no CVT/transmission in it at all. There is a complete motor but that's it. Don't even know if the motor is any good. Anyway, I can't seem to find any real helpful information about all the parts missing. The parts diagrams don't seem to really help me. Does anyone have one or have in info or a place for me to get good info from.
