Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 8 months ago

What f/r switch do you have? On dash, or large switch behind the knee? Have you swapped the f/r wires on the switch?

Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it is on dash. it has 3 wires
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

One wire is power to the switch, the others are the f/r wires, swap the f/r and see if problem swaps, or stays same. If it swaps, replace the switch.
