    My runner has a starter switch with a cranking hold function. You just hit the key and let go and it will crank for 25 seconds or until started. Well, it was already running the other day and I got distracted by my beautiful wife and tried to crank it again. It just clicked and went dead. In the past when I have done that it didn't do anything and kept running. When I try to restart it now it just clicks and shuts off all the dash lights except the battery light. Even the dome light goes out. When I turn the key off everything resets and I can try again with the same results. I don't appear to have any blown fuses. I have disconnected the battery to see if that would help. It didn't. Is there a relay I am missing? Or have I blown the solenoid?
