    Default Cat skid steer starter relay

    I have a Cat 236 that won't turn over. Battery tested ok, cables and contacts are all good and the starter tests ok when jumped across the solenoid. The wire from the keyswitch to the starter will not energize when the switch is turned, so it seems that the keyswitch must be bad OR is there a relay between the keyswitch and the starter?

    Thanks,

    Rich

    Rich did you check the lap bar switch? Are all the hydraulics "off"? Just a few things to look at. Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I did not think of a potential safety switch problem.

    Well, that was it. Some vandal unplugged the lap bar safety switch. Thanks for your help! Rich
