    I have a bulldog trench roller that will start and run, but then shuts off after about 20 seconds. The shutoff solenoid deactivates, causing the engine to shutoff, and all power to the screen goes off too, no error codes, just shuts off completely. I can turn the key back off and start it right back up and it will do the same thing. Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance!!!

    I would check the oil sensor on the side of the engine, down by the oil pan..
    Do u have any lites on the panel.?
    Depending on the injection pump if it’s a diesel..??
    U can remove ALL the fittings off the top of the pump and start it..
    Fuel WILL FLOW OUT, so be prepared for that..
    If it stays running, u probably have a pump problem..
    I can help you with that..

    It runs fine for 20 seconds then shuts down.
    It will stay running if I wire fuel solenoid open. But then electronics shut off - so no controls. If I cycle key to off then back on I immediately have controls for another 20 seconds. Electric problem

    If it’s a 3 wire sol. U have to straight wire it properly..
    Black is GROUND
    RED IS HOLD.. then u can wire the plunger to the run position..
