Https://www.justanswer.com/construction-and-road-equipment/akg94-cat-304cr-excavator-will-not-shut-off.html I have a similar issue to this link, 1, my 304CCR wont shut off with key. I have to pull the fuel shut off solenoid positive wire to kill it. It has 12VDC on that wire even with the key off. The other thing I noticed, is that the battery drains when I leave it for a few days, I assume this is because that solenoid is always powered? Thank you for the help. I am guessing that the shut off relay is bad.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the construction mechanic to know before I connect you?

Can I upload photos?
