Turn the key to the ON position, some times it would cycle, then not.
I think the whining sound is the fuel pump pressurizing.
I also heard what sounded like a ticking noise coming from
the throttle body. Just looked up the part and it was either
the Sensor-throttle position or the motor-isc stepping.
When the pod would stay lit (after many cycle tries), the key start wouldn't work,
just a tick sound from the starter and the solenoid ticking.
So I installed a new battery.
I jumped the lugs on the solenoid and it would start right up.
Let it run for awhile, turn off, then key on the ON position pod would light up,
then the turn to the start position and the starter would crank over and start
the frickin thing.
I cleaned every connection I could think of and even took the ignition switch apart,
the Run-off assembly apart and cleaned, still nothing seemed to make it work like it should.
Then when it sat overnight when it was rainy & cold, it took forever for the pod to light up and stay on enough
to lug jump start. Then back to like nothing was wrong.
I never did figure it out and came to the conclusion it's obviously an electrical problem some where.
My buddy informed he used it to jump start his sons atv, then informed me it started doing this after he got it stuck in deep mud up to the front fenders.
I also will be watching this thread if someone finds the problem.
