The way your Gator shuts off is the ignition switch grounds the black wire that, along with two green wires, goes over the motor and down behind the flywheel. That ground wire is white coming out of the switch and turns to black at the engine wiring harness. So take your hood off and start it up and ground the white wire coming out of the switch and see if it shuts off. If it does your switch could be bad, if it doesn't you have an open condition in that wire. Possibly the plug on top of the motor is loose.

I've been thinking about your problem and before you do anything, unbolt the ground wires that go to the top of the motor, clean all the terminals, and put it back together and try it. That will get you started in the right direction.

I can ground the white wire at the switch and kill it. I bought a new switch and it does the same thing

The ground is bad from the black wire going into the ignition switch to the main ground. Did you remove and clean the ground wires on top of the motor? The ground wire you are concerned with goes from the switch to the diff lock light on the dash, then to the parking brake light, then to the harness connection for the headlights and then to chassis ground. Do those lights work on your dash? If you can't find the problem, go to the double black wire in the headlight harness, splice a wire into either wire and ground the other end. That should work. If that doesn't work, splice a ground wire directly into the black wire going into the ignition switch.

 gator won't shut off

I have a similar problem on my 2003 4x2. When I turn off the ignition switch, it takes about 4 seconds for the engine to cut off. I installed new switch, installed a ground wire as mentioned above, and removed and cleaned the ground at the engine. None of this has helped. It never fails to shut off, but takes about 4 seconds. My brother's gator doesn't do this, so I assume it is not normal. Can anyone help me?
I have one other question: Is it possible to clean the filter that is inside the fuel pump? Sometimes my machine won't start. It is not getting gas. I can put 2 or 3 drops of gas in the cylinder and it will start and continue running. I have installed a new fuel filter.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.
