I had two intermittent problems with my original CDI unit…the engine would not shut off and the engine would cutout thus a loss of power when running. Both of these issues would disappear when applying finger pressure to a particular point on the CDI unit. I ordered a new CDI unit (Hotshot from Rick’s Motorsports) and the original two issues cleared up but now I have two new problems. The engine will not fire over when using the starter switch (it will start when pulling the rope starter) and once the engine is running my ATV will die when shifted into reverse.

The problem sounds like the neutral safety switch is bad or shorting out

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

CDI stands for Capacitor discharge ignition. If your motorcycle engine uses a CDI unit it is responsible for to giving the spark at the plug/s. If the CDI unit is faulty you can get a weak or intermittent spark or no spark at all. This translates to poor running or no running at all.
Symptoms could include misfiring, dead cylinders, backfiring, bizarre tach behavior, and countless other things related to how your engine`s running.
Commonly Located: The capacitor discharged ignition is commonly referred to as a CDI box.
If your engine is not sparking, it may be due to a problem with the CDI box. However, other potential causes of no spark include issues with the ignition coil, spark plug, or wiring.
If the multimeter reading changes when you touch the red lead to different terminals, then the CDI box is functioning properly. If the multimeter reading does not change when you touch the red lead to different terminals, then the CDI box is not functioning properly and will need to be replaced.
No. It is the ignition unit/spark control. Of the three things any engine needs to run: timed spark, compression, fuel. Missing any 1 component, bike will not run.
Central diabetes insipidus (CDI) is a rare and treatable condition in which your body doesn`t have enough antidiuretic hormone, which leads to extreme water loss through your urine. Most cases of CDI are due to damage to your hypothalamus or pituitary gland.
Loss of spark is caused by anything that prevents coil voltage from jumping the electrode gap at the end of the spark plug. This includes worn, fouled or damaged spark plugs, bad plug wires or a cracked distributor cap.
The systems themselves may vary in terms of the power supply, since some are powered by a high-voltage source coil on the stator (AC-CDI) and some by the vehicle`s battery (DC-CDI). The CDI boxes in these systems are not interchangeable.
The other way around, a CDI can be used to limit the max RPM and so max. speed by delaying the ignition so much, that the motor doesn`t gain any power from the combustion. One reason might be to protect the motor from too high RPM, but often, this is used to fulfill legal restrictions.
CDI Ignition system works by passing an electrical current over the capacitor. When power passes through a capacitor, the flow of electric current immediately transfers to the ignition coil. Now, the charged ignition coil acts as a transformer and allows the energy to pass through it, instead of catching any of it.
car won`t start: an engine needs four basic things to run: fuel,compression, spark and exhaust. if the ignition module has failed completely, the vehicle won`t get spark and won`t start.
Bad Sensors

Sensors that fail to send information to the computer may cause the engine to run less efficiently, and they can sometimes be the cause of an engine that won`t start. One common culprit for this problem is the crankshaft position sensor, which measures the position and speed of the crankshaft.

Some other typical reasons engines fail to start include:

Low or discharged battery. Corroded or loose battery cables. Starter motor relay failure. Ignition switch failure.

Engine dies when clutch is released engine dies. jumped clutch switch and now when blades are engaged the engine dies. maybe a bad clutch switch? thanks, mike
ANSWER : I would think more than likly your seat switch is bad. Try disconnecting the switch, do not jump, and see if it works ok. If not, then jump the switch.
Depending how old the tractor is, the switch can work either way.
Good luck, let me know.

Need to replace 9n tractor starter when you turn ignition key the starter just keeps going around.
ANSWER : I suggest that you pull the starter and make sure the bendix unit isn’t stuck on the shaft which may be rusted or dirty and corroded first. If the starter spins then the starter itself is probably okay. Hope this helps you

How do I remove starter from 14 H.P. B&S vertical shaft engine?
ANSWER : Normally it hooks up to the engine at the top side where the flywheel is located..at the top you will find two small bolts..and at the bottom one or two wires..just disconnect the battery cables so no sparks or shorts when removing from the starter..then disconnect the starter wires set aside and then remove the two bolts..it should drop right out…note.. In some cases you may need to remove the engine shroud on the top to get at the bolts…not a hard job..if more the one wire…mark them or draw a diagram as where they were attached..good luck
