Starting and immediate stopping solved
SDSam, Taz 104 and others.
Thanks for all your suggestions.
I found the problem.
The "vehicle down switch was loose and flopping around under the drivers seat area!
A post on this board back in 2012 led me to looking for the switch and when I mounted it correctly, lo and behold, the Teryx would crank and run and not immediately die. Thank goodness I do not have to go into the fuel pump assembly; at least not right now. I suspect that will be coming up and I appreciate your advice regarding that.
I posted under the general discussion about the "kill" switch and added a pic of the manual that shows what it looks like.
Thanks to the post by scmo777 that led me to the solution.
I will post the pic here also.
