I had just a crappy meter on it mostly gave me reading about fuel but I don't think that's it. I have read about a box under the drivers seat to take apart and clean haven't don't that yet

When it does this does it crank over and not start right away to where you have to sit before it will start?The starter is engaging to crank over the engine but the engine is not starting?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
takes about two minutes before it will start back up. I believe I put the key to off wait 2 minutes then roll right back over

If you are speaking of the call this is an added feature or premium service to where there is an extra charge.I am unsure of the costs.We can either do the call if you want or continue here instead just let me know what you want to do.

Thanks Pete
