My Gator won't start. It turns over and tries to start but that's all. It did start momentarily but then stopped. Also, the power lift for the bed won't operate so I can't access the engine etc. Both turn signal dash lights light up even though I don't have turn signals! I've checked all the fuses I can find and used a booster while trying to start it. A maintenance light lights but I'm not sure what to check.

Thanks in advance!

Friend of mine has one of these, and there was a loose connector under the hood that caused similar issue. Cannot remember if it was no crank at all, or just no start.

Will check that and the fuel filter if it ever stops raining here in MA.

Thanks, Trails2004.

Any updates?

Problem solved. Before I started taking things apart I decided to replace the battery as it was rather weak and I had to use a jump pack. Installed the new one and it started right up and everything worked! I don't know why the old battery and a 100 amp charger/starter wouldn't start it but I'm a happy guy again. Only have to replace the the problematic clutch now.
