    Trail Buck won't start - FAIL code on dash - what does that mean?

    Hello,
    I hope I am posting in the right area, if not, let me know.
    I have a FAIL message displayed on the dash of my Trail Buck 650 and it won't turn over to start. Battery was replaced about four weeks ago and if I connect it to my battery charger/booster, I can start it but when I turn it off after ten minutes of idling, it won't start again. Any ideas? Where can I get more information on this FAIL message?

    thanks,
    Linda

    Linda,
    Did you ever find out what the problem was? Mine has the same issue now and I could use some help.
    Thanks,

    Steve, if your Buck will turn over with the starter, but fails to start, try checking the wires that feed the ignition coil. The coil is located on the spark plug. I have owned four Bucks (still got two) and one of them had this problem. The primary wires were in tension with coil installed. The strain finally broke one of the wires inside the connector and was a time consuming female dog to figure out..!!
