coleman 500 outfitter wont turn over

Recommended Posts

i have a coleman 500 outfitter 

engine will not turn over by using the ignition but will when you jump the starter silenoid 

also when it is running using this the battery is not charging 

i have replaced the ignition and starter sileniod still no difference 

near the passenger side wheel well area there was a wire with a plug that had a plug with resistor on it and the resistor is fried i havent been able to figure out a replacement part for it 

im hoping someone has some ideas on this

That appears to be a diode.  Can you see any labeling that might start with "1N".  That signifies a diode and no a resistor.  I'll see if I can find something online about it.  But maybe another Coleman owner or dealer can ID the part in the meantime.  A website I visited said that the Coleman may be a rebranded Hisun UTV.

Normally the only thing preventing the engine from starting is the brake lock out switch, some units need the parking brake to be applied to be able to start. Next would be the neutral selector switch. Some engines need to ensure the unit is in neutral to start. By the look of that connector, it might be a bypass switch of sorts. But start with the basics, check to ensure the parking brake does not have a switch on it more than two wires. Two wires will be needed to send the signal to the instrument to allow the dash light to come on letting you know the parking brake is on, if it has more than 2 wires, then its likely also working as a safety switch to prevent the engine from starting without the parking brake on. As for the neutral switch, it should have more than two wires, this has to be working for the engine to start. Although the dash light might light up, that doesnt mean the switch is fully operational. If the switch is faulty, then it will not send the signal to the starter relay allowing the engine to turn over.

      Hi All,
      I am trying to source a replacement starter for my 2010 Hisun 800.  The part number on the starter is MX100709 800.  Is there any other manufacturer's (Honda, Polaris, Yamaha, etc.) starter that would be a suitable replacement?

      A few pictures (so far) of the engine work - eventually I will share wiring info and other details (if anyone is interested?)  should anyone else ever need to swap an engine in one of these. The replacement engine is a Harbor freight $750 special 670cc,  (lawn mower/industrial type lump) with a few minor upgrades. Should have it back together soon, bolted in. The cold weather slows me down!

      I am installing a second battery in my 07 Prowler. How do I wire it up so the stereo doesn't drain the main battery, but the second battery can still charge
