2009 Teryx Strange noise when turning ignition off

Hello, I am relatively new to the forum. I have recently purchased a 2009 Teryx 750M and have encountered an issue. I can crank it and it will almost immediately shutdown before even putting in gear. As I turn the ignition back to off, I hear a strange sound that is like a solenoid slowly changes position. Can someone tell me what this is?

Not sure if this is the right spot to post but admin will correct hopefully.

the noise is the K.E.B.C. short for Kawasaki Electric Brake Controller it is resetting in some position when you key it off totally normal. if your teryx is dying before going into drive would be another issue.

Thanks SDSam!, I have also found that the battery was almost dead. I have included some pics on the "Hello" thread and have pulled the battery out (what a job). It is not the OEM type battery.

Could low voltage have been the reason the engine would shut down immediately after cranking? At any rate, I know I have to get that resolved first before continuing the troubleshooting.

Will appreciate any recommendations on new battery.

A low battery wouldn't cause your engine to shut off. If it starts, the battery is good...that's all it's there to do. I would look at air/fuel delivery....Or plugs if it sputtered before shutting down.

The filter was checked and it is in terrible condition. Looks totally plugged and black with some oil residue. Can’t imagine how it got this bad.

Will charge battery and replace filter before trying again.

Update

Well, I learned the filter is black foam with oil added so I do not know if my original impression was warranted. However, it is replaced with an OEM. No wonder people are looking for off market prices. These darn things will bankrupt you it appears to keep them running!

On another note, it looks like the old battery was not bad after all. Just discharged but checked at Autozone to have good cells and just needed a longer charge. It has successfully recharged and shows 13.1 volts this morning.

I need to read some more about the Kawasaki Electric Brake Controller. I am not familiar with that feature. Any links or guidance there would be appreciated.

Short explanation is, the KEBC has a fork which pushes on the outer sheeve of the primary clutch which in turn pinches the drive belt providing engine braking when the primary clutch is not engaged by centrifugal force. I THINK it is probably controlled by the speed sensor, engine RPM and the ECU. Not to be confused with the centrifugal clutch on the second generation Teryx which keeps the primary clutch stationary until it is engaged.

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.
