    Default Kubota BX2230 - Will not turn off when switching key to off position

    I own a 2004 kubota BX2230 that will not turn off when the ignition switch is turned off. Have you seen this before, and have you any idea why this may be happening?

    What Murph said. Look down on the left side for a lever on the fuel pump. That lever is pulled by a solenoid and will have a red tip on it, though it is tough to see if you are in a hurry to shut it down. Look down behind the dash for it.

    Causes could vary, but could be a blown fuse. If the tractor is already off, turn the key on and you'll hear the fuel pump click like crazy. If you turn the key off, the pump stops, but then the solenoid should kick in and it lasts for about 15-20 seconds. Really made me curious when I first got mine. I'd walk away and then here this loud click about 5 steps away. That was the solenoid releasing.

    Thanks for the suggestions Folks. I will investigate next time I start it up. I was able to shut off the tractor by pushing in the plunger on the solenoid.
