Hi everyone - I was driving my 2017 Cub Cadet Challenger 750 EPS today on the ranch when it dies on me. It started right up - and then as i was driving after about 50 feet the engine just turned off. It was running perfect before it cut out on me. No alarms, no weird sounds or smells. It just turned off.
When I turn the ignition key, the starter cranks away and the battery and starter turns fast and strong - but the engine doesn't start.
I've confirmed gas flow to the carb - that the fuel filters are clean and clear. I've replaced the spark plug with a brand new one. I checked every fuse with a meter. I have confirmed air filters and airflow are good.
But the darn thing cranks away without the engine even making a sputter or even attempting to fire.
Is there a kill switch somewhere that could have been tripped? I checked the seatbelt sensor, the brake sensor, and parking gear sensor - all are working and i'm in Park, pressing down on the brake, and have the seatbelt latched when i try to start. but - nada!
It acts like it isn't getting a spark. but like i said i put in a new spark plug. I have a feeling there is a sensor or an electrical kill switch somewhere that tripped.
open to any ideas.

my friend has a 2018 Massimo Warrior 700. It will continue to run, even after removing the key from the ignition switch. And stays running until he disconnects the battery. The other clue is the left head light stays on, he has burned out three left headlight bulbs in a year. He has checked for loose connections. One final clue is he went through a 6 inch puddle of water, so some wires may have gotten wet. It’s been inside for 4 days, with same symptoms. Any ideas?
thanks in advance

I have a 2018 Dominator LT 1000 and I am wanting to stiffen up the ride. What is the best way to accomplish this, tighten the recoil spring up or add air to the shock. I can't find any information on the procedure. Also, since im asking questions........my top end rpms doesnt seem to be where it should be. Max RPM is 6100 and usually drops down to 5800 maxed out. Im just wondering if everyone else has the same experience.

I have changed the plug, changed the fuel injector, drained the fuel tank looking for water, replaced the coil , checked out the wiring on top of the fuel tank looking for bad connection . The UTV will sputter but will not start. Any ideas will be helpful!
I have a HiSun Vector E1 (as they're called here in the UK) and have been running it for about a year now. It has an annoying problem that my dealer has not yet managed to fix.
On a full charge, at the start of the day, it works fine - albeit not the quickest machine in the world. I use it on my hill farm here in Scotland, and it has to climb a bit, although nothing that would leave you out of breath walking. The E1 copes with these hills no problem, until it's done about four or five miles, then it starts to struggle noticeably, and throws of the 4C53 error on the dashboard readout - low voltage according to the manual. Sometimes it does this even while the charge level indicator is showing a full charge.
It's been back to the dealers twice now, and they've replaced all of the batteries. I've emailed the UK distributor for HiSun in the hope of an answer, but as yet have had no response. My dealer is trying to get an answer from them too, before taking the machine back to try and fix it again. Meantime I can only use it for a short while each day.
I'm no electrician, so has anyone on here any idea what might be going on? It seems that it is struggling to draw enough power from the battery pack going uphill, leading to a voltage drop that trips the error code. But if that's the case, then the E1 is surely not fit for purpose.
