Customer Question
My 2004 Chieftain 400...

My 2004 Chieftain 400 mobile screening machine will not start. Does not turn over. Could it be safety features not allowing it to start?

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

Serial Number 69-06-265

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, the control panel will not let me do anything. It was running 2 days ago and now it will not start.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Using a volt meter or test light verify you have 12 volts to the small S terminal signal wire at the starter solenoid with the ignition switch in the cranking position. If so and the batteries and cable connections are good it points to a faulty starter solenoid/starter assembly in need of replacement. If no power, then it could be a safety switch, wiring issue, or fuse/relay/ switch problem. Let me know the results. We can follow up as needed.

Please take a moment to rate as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.
