    Default Diesel just shutdown- Need help

    Tractor was running fine. I was sitting on the tracor and not moving while looking at where I wanted to go next and it just stopped running. Lights work, glow plugs come on but now it won't even turn over. I've drained the water separater but didn't notice anything unusual. Any ideas what to do next? Thanks

    What brand/model tractor? That might help with the "long distance diagnosis".

    If it's that Simplicity, it probably has a "seat switch", requiring an arse in the seat. I would check that, or other safety start switches.

    You have a good memory norm. Yes Simplicity XL with the Diahatsu diesel. I looked at the seat switch and didn't see anything unusual but that makes sense. I'll check again in the daylight. Not sure if it has any other safety switches. Fuel pump? How do you know? Only has 265 hours.

    Well crisis over. No idea why. I guess a loose connection somewhere. I was jiggling just about any wire I could find. Went out this morning and it started right up. Might happen again but soent most of the afternoon on it and no problems.

    Maybe it was the heart-to-heart talk I had with it last night. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the suggestions!!

    Phoenix,

    For furture reference. Here's my list of Stupid Things that can make it stop and not start.

    1) It has a seat switch and you stood up, bounced up.
    2) Seat switch wire is loose
    3) It died, with the PTO engaged, now it won't start until you remember to disengage the PTO
    4) You ran out of fuel!

    It's usually something simple.

    It has been my experience that inanimate objects that heal themselves are just waiting for a more inconvenient time to quit for good [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
