i have a 2008 or so dk45 kioti tractor at the house, i replaced the key switch assembly the beginning of the year, fixed my start issue, i went to use it yesterday and the tachometer was jumping and it took a few trys with the key to get it to turn over, i turned it off and went to restart it and had nothing, when i turn the key to off the glow plug relay starts buzzing for around 5 seconds and stops, after trying this a bunch of times the flasher relay was also buzzing for a few seconds, i pulled the key assembly out and bench tested it and it seems to be fine, the glow plug has been staying slightly on for around 1/2 hour or so when im using it. any idea what direction i should be going next? i dont have means to get this thing to the dealer nor do i want to spend that kind of money, thanks in advance!

i havent checked that yet, 12volt on the battery though, when i turn the key i get nothing now, then go to start and it doesnt do anything, when i turn the key back to off the glow plug relay starts buzzing for about 5 seconds and sometimes the flasher relay buzz's too, i checked the key switch and the relays this morning and they vhecked out good, took the glow plug relay apart and didnt see any burnt marks on the board, i have a few extra relays in the shop for my race car if i find one bad but didnt get a chance to check anymore, last time i had this problem it was the key switch, after replacing it i was fine, i was going to buy another today but after bench testing it im thinkin it is o.k.

I'm thinking the battery or cables are your problem.The buzzing and so forth makes me think low voltage.
