2009 Teryx "kill" switch

Hello Forum Members,

I am trying to get better aquainted with my Teryx.

Can someone clue me in on where the "kill" switch is located that activates to shut off the fuel pump when the unit turns over?

I am going to see what I can find in the manual I have but I do not recall seeing the location; just schematically on the electrical diagram.

Also known as "vehicle down sensor".

Vehicle Down Switch and Problem Solved

Nevermind. I have found it and LO AND BEHOLD!!

My starting and immediate stopping of the engine has been cured!

For those who may encounter the same problem, I have attached a pic from the manual that shows how it is to be mounted under the drivers seat.u

Praise be! I was not looking forward to tearing into the fuel pump assembly. I will save that fun for a later day. From what I read on this forum, that will likely be my next problem.

Nothing with the switch itself. It had come loose from the holder that keeps it in normal position. I remounted it per the manual and all was good. Cranked without dying and no stalling on giving it more gas.

Now to reassemble all the covers removed to reverse engineer all the wiring modifications. I did a lot of rework but stuff is working now.

I took the advice to reinstall old battery without the “bucket” it was in by PO. Now, I need to stabilize/secure the battery somehow.
