2005 Walker EFI 26HP

Recently I've been experiencing a condition where the Walker wants to shut off temporarily then restarts itself, especially on inclines.

Has anyone else experienced this? If so can you tell me what the problem is?

My guess would be a faulty seat switch. On inclines your weight shifts and the switch may not be getting the normal pressure or it is stuck and not functioning properly

i haven't seen one come into the shop yet that it hasn't been jumpered together or disconnected.

We are instructed to DO NOT FIX or TOUCH IT.

OK. Here no evil , see no evil.

That could be easily fixed with a time delay module that most manufacturers use. Walker has not in the past, don't know about recently.

Basically, you have to be off the seat for about 2-3 seconds before it will cut out. Makes a big difference then 1-2 second.
