Hi Thomas. My name is***** will be glad to try to help. When this shuts down is it instant like you turned off the key or sputter and die like it is starving for fuel?

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Are there any warning indicators or faults on the display?

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Click on this link for the maintenance manual and schematics (End of the manual). Check to confirm if it is shutting down due to coolant temp or oil pressure. If not actual problems, check the sensors and harness. Let me know.

No it doesn't splutter like a fuel issue its just shuts down every time after exactly 5 seconds,
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Check for low coolant level and if okay check for a faulty sensor or harness. Also check the same for oil pressure sensor and harness. Most commonly it will be coolant level or temp. Let me know

We tried bypassing the three sensors , air filter , oil temp & oil pressure already but still the same , there are two lights on the circuit board ( where the fuses are located ) that stay illuminated , I don't have anything in the manual that refers to these, I have attached a photo of these .

I'm pretty sure there's no coolant & that it's air cooled
