volvo 8.1 not cranking

Recommended Posts

ok, this problem has even my mechanic stumped. i was tubing with the kids, lots of starting and stopping. after one stop, the engine wouldnt turn over, turn the key and not a sound. If i pull the kill switch out, the motor turns over but obviously doesnt start. as soon as i press the kill switch button, the motor stops turning over. no beeps or anything. has anyone ever had this problem. i have a chapparal 276 with a volvo 8.1. my mechanic tested everything he could tink of for 2 hours and still no solution. any help anyone.

have you tried bypassing the kill switch to see if that is bad, sounds like when you flip the kill button it turns but once you stop nothing which sounds like power is terminated to the starter. hopefully just a bad switch

I agree, bypass the kill switch. Mine broke and I bypassed it years ago.
