  1. Hey guys, My 2013 Vermeer bc1000xl won’t start, it cranks but won’t fire. I have narrowed it down to being my fuel solenoid isn’t getting power and I have no idea why it is not. The computer is not allowing the solenoid to get 12volts for some reason. If I plug it in directly to the battery the Solenoid will open and I get fuel and she runs but if I wire it correctly the computer doesn’t send power and the solenoid stays closed and lets no fuel past. Any idea of how to fix this? has b3.3 Cummins motor
