Have you checked voltages to the shutoff solenoid?

If you have three wires, you may have a short to battery on one.

You could also have a failed solenoid that is stuck in but, this is not common. It is more common to have one that will not start from a failed solenoid.

Are you having trouble with any other circuits?

Have you had any recent repairs?

Please post the full machine serial number with your reply. CAT has different versions that are separated by the serial numbers.
