Check for faulty low oil sending unit or oil level low or dirty oil (some generators have a fuel cut-out solenoid at the carb ). Key switch will override the low oil safety. Easy test, remove wire from oil sending unit. If unit runs, and oil has not been changed in a while, service engine and retest.

Cutting out while riding

I have a bike that at one time I'd be riding along, and the motor would die, and all lights and instrument go out, as if I turn it off with the key.

Turn key off, back on, and all would be fine until the next time.

It turned out to be a bad ignition switch.

99 marquis got spark got fuel starts with starting fluid relay seems fine switched

Can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key on? First thing I would check is the fuel cut off switch located in the trunk on the driverside quarter panel.Sometimes this will cut off the fuel if the vehicle is jolted from a pot hole or collision. It's a little black box which may have either a red or black button on it.

1994 saturn starts intermittently

Saturn Ion's have a problem with the starter switch in the steering column. The security feature built into the key is a small resistor. When the key is inserted, the engine computer 'reads' the resistance and accepts the key as valid. The problem is that the pin that the key contacts is gummed up INSIDE the ignition switch. A new switch will fix the problem but Saturn won't cover the replacement though they have issued a tech bulltein on the problem.

The other fix that I did based on an Internet search is to cut the small 24 ga white wire coming from the ignition switch WHILE THE CAR IS RUNNING. The engine computer defaults to the run mode and will no longer look for the key verification. The small key symbol remains lit on the dash but the car starts everytime. Small price to pay. The real answer is that Saturn should replace or discount the repair due to HEAVY grease in the switch the gums up over time. Under 40 degrees, the connection is lost to the computer.
