IGNITION PROBLEM MASSIMO 500 2015

Are you sure it's meant to have power to it all the time ? Does it perhaps have a permanent earth ?

Some engines have power going to the injector all the time the key is on, and then the ecu earths the injector momentarily when they want it to inject. Other systems though have a permanent earth, and then the ecu sends a momentary voltage to the injector when they want it to inject. Perhaps this is one of the latter..

Do you have the service manual for this thing ?

And.. what is a massimo ? Is that a make, or a model of quad ?  Is it a quad ? haha..  I've never heard of that before.

Thanks for your response Massimo is a Brand Name 4X4 UTV, before I started having a problem I installed a new injector at that time if I turned engine over injector would spray fuel but now it will not. I do not have a service manual.

Well I haven't found a service manual, but that site has an owners manual for it which has a bit of trouble shooting suggestions. Unfortunatly the owners manual doesn't have a wiring diagram.. But, since the problem has only arisen since you did some work on it.. I'd suspect it's something you've done..

So, first thing would be to check that a wire hasn't broken where it goes into the injectors plug. Best way would be to trace the colour of the wire back to the ecu, and then use an ohm gauge to test from one end of the wire(from the ecu), to the other end(the injectors terminals inside the plug). If you can't trace the wire, use a pin and poke it into the injector wire a little way back from the plug and check from the pin to the injectors plug. That's just checking that there is continuity through the wire and into the terminal itself. You should do a similar sort of trace and test of the earth wire too.

Try that and let us know how that goes, and I'll see if I can find a wiring diagram or service manual.

There are a few other things we should check..  After you changed the injector did you bleed the air out of the lines by turning the key on and off several times ? And, are you really sure there's no power, or are you just assuming that because a new injector isn't doing what it should ?

If you put a finger lightly on the injector, can you feel it click/pulse when you crank the engine over ? It's only a very slight click you will feel, use a light finger. If the engine was running, you'd be able to feel the injector make a click as it injected.. cranking it over might make the engine shake too much to be able to feel it but it would be a good idea to check that if we can if it's only the lack of fuel that you are sure about..  Perhaps the injector is getting the power, but it needs bleeding, or it might be faulty.. It happens occasionally !

Try and verify there is fuel to the injector, loosen the coupling perhaps. And try to feel for the click.. If you took the injector out again you'd feel the click.. but it's a bit of a fire risk.. Be careful.

According to the owners manual if there is an electrical fault the dash will flash..  Is it flashing ?

This is a twin cylinder right ?  So does one injector squirt ? Did you change both injectors ? 

No sir its a single cylinder

THANKS TO ALL WHO TRIED TO HELP ME LOCATE PROBLEM(solved) IT WAS DIRT IN CONNECTIONS AND A BAD WIRE CONNECTION PIGTAIL INTO INJECTOR.

DOES ANYONE KMOW WHERE I CAN GET A NEW PIGTAIL FOR THE INJECTOR MASSIMO 500

ALSO NEED SIDE COVER PLATE FOR TIMING CHAIN

MECH PROBLEM SOLVED thanks so much for your help turned out to be a bad wire going to injector and dirty electrical plugs and/or not all plugged in all the way.

Merry Christmas

thank you so much

      Well, I bought the Axis 500 sold at Lowes for $8999 a couple days ago.  This post will be about my impressions as I use, fix, and abuse the machine.  I will add to the post as I gain experience with it.
      Thanks to other posters on this site warning of new machines with loose hardware, one of my first actions was to crawl all over it checking fluids and connections.  Zirks were all freshly greased, fluids in engine, and gear boxes were up to level.  One of the little gas struts that help lift the bed to dump was dangling with only one end connected, and the other strut had not been fully tightened.
      Here are some things I don't like:
      The rear gearbox does not have a differential in it.  It is essentially a solid axle.  Tight turns on lawn will leave tracks, and turns are not as tight on pavement.  In my case this won't matter much, but if you plan to use it on a lawn, this will create tracks on turns.
      To check engine oil you need to remove both front seats and a plastic cover.  This according to the manual.  I'm pretty sure it can be checked with that stuff in place, either from under or above, but that remains to be seen.
      I am not used to a CVT transmission.  I am used to a clutch and multiple gears.  This one requires giving it plenty of gas out of the hole and then backing off to get it to shift up.  I'm sure I will get used to it, but I'd like to be able to take off quietly if I want to.
      The doors have bungie cords to act as springs to close them.  I removed the driver door so I would not need to fight the constant pressure to close.  Problem solved.  I will leave the passenger door as is.  Gotta keep the grandkids safe.
      The status display is hard to read if the sun is on it.
       
      Here is some stuff I like: 
      I was concerned about there being enough torque to slowly climb a steep hill.  There is.  I will elaborate more on this when I've had it on my steeper trails.
      The display has dedicated lights to indicate status of gear position, low oil pressure, over temp, and a bunch of other stuff.  This helps a beginner with feedback that an action taken was successful.
      The sparsity of knobs on the tires dig in well on most surfaces.  I bet they wear out fast on pavement.
      The tilt bed has a tail gate that is easy to operate.  Much like early Japan pickups.
      Steering is responsive and little slack.  Remains to be seen how long to get loose since the u-joints are operating at quite sharp angles.
      Seats are pretty nice.  Will be interesting to see how long it will take me to poke a screw driver though them.
      Seat belts are included to hold grand kids in.  Won't go over 5 mph if both aren't buckled.  Yeah, it works to buckle them empty.  Doing this leaves the belt high on back, so you don't have to sit on it. 
      Hauling it home, my trailer wheel wells were too close together to clear the tires of the UTV.  This required driving it off center a bit, with one set of tires inside the wells and one side driving over the wheel well.  Creeping over the one well required climbing a 10 inch vertical well.  The ability to lock the front axle differential kept both front wheels pulling as I drove the one side up and over the wheel well.  The guys at Lowes were impressed.  They won't touch any but an unobstructed flat trailer loading.
       
      As I gain more experience I will add to this topic,
      tom
