Hi. There are 2 things that control the Auto Throttle and that is the idle control valve (Connected with black and yellow wires) and the Auto Throttle Unit.

Start Generator
Check for 12VDC on the Yellow wire of the idle control valve. Yellow is positive to any good Chassis ground. If you don't have 12VDC then either the Auto Throttle switch is bad or the Auto Throttle Unit iself.

You can gain access to the Auto throttle switch and again check for 12VDC to Ground on both sides of the switch with the switch on. (It may read as high as 13.8 engine running) If you don't get 12 - 13.8 VDC the the Auto throttle control unit is bad

If you have 12VDC to the Idle control Valve and it does not work perform a resistance check across the coil of the Idle control Valve (both wires disconnected Engine off) Black to yellow should read 3 to 4 Ohms If you have no resistance then the coil in the Idle control Valve is bad.

If you need more help just respond here

My Honda EB3500X Shuts off when auto throttle is switched on making me run full throttle at all times. Cause? Solution?


if your engine shutting down, then your auto throttle is working.
when you hit the switch watch the throttle arm move on the carburetor to the idle position,if so you may have to clean the carburetor jet and fuel nozzle ports.possibly this occurs when unit has been stored for quite some time.once jets are cleaned it should maintain idle.

S5610Y shuts off by itself


Thus far you did well however I believe since I had experienced the same issue with my computer shutting on and off as well. I went and bought some Heat Sink Paste and redid the CPU top and walla no more issue with computer shutting down. You may wish to give this a go. It worked for me. $4.00 fix. Thought I would suggest it. .John

Our hydrovane 711s doesnt shut down when up to presure on auto mode < constaint not a problem when auto still like nothing has changed


The unit probably has modulation cpability, meaning that it can throttle the inlet valve to match demand, sort of like cruise control for air pressure. If it is modulating at a lower pressure than the idle/shutdown pressure, then it will never shut off, even in auto.

If it unloads, but never shuts down, you might have a bad timer in the control panel.

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

JD Lawn Tractor L130. will not start


They have an auto shutoff for low oil, start there check your fluids. If Ok check for spark. Try full throttle choke off in case it might be flooded. See if any of that works and let me know.

Will not auto recharge properly


Hi,

From what you've written for your problem, I would say that your pressure switch is malfunctioning, as this is the part that regulates when the unit starts and shuts down.

It might just be the settings of the load spring, If your familiar with working on electrical devices see if you can manually engage or disengage the pressure switch. If this turns the unit of and on, it leaves you with only two problems. The unit is not reading the pressure or it's not sensing the pressure. Either way it calls for a pressure switch replacement

Hope this helps.
