Customer Question
position. If I manually pull...
95 cummins. Will start but dies when key is back to run position. If I manually pull up the fuel solenoid lever and have someone start it it stays running fine even when I let go of the lever. It is a bad solenoid or relay? Thanks

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem could be the shutdown solenoid itself but it could also be a wiring issue, the relay that powers the solenoid, possibly just a blown fuse. It will require some electrical testing to determine what is going on.

Do you have an incandescent test light?

Is there power on the light green/black wire at the solenoid with the key on?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
