Hello, I work with the Volvo side of jcb skidsteers, and there is a know problem with the keyswitch for no start conditions. Is this a skid steer robot arm design?

So r u suggesting a new key switch. There have been time earlier where it wouldn't start but always started on the second try

Hello, thanks for that info. The key switch was only on the skid steers. That's why I asked. I I don't have a schematic for that machine but I like your thinking on the fuel shut. You should find a schematic so you know the power source, whether its a relay or through a fuse from the key switch. Secondly apply power to the solenoid manually to se if it will start and run. Then you know your on the right track.,
