    I have a new 1.8 stainless v box with the briggs and stratton motor. Everything has functioned fine but now the electric throttle/choke will not work. I can manually throttle up the engine but not with the controller. Anyone have any ideas what would cause this? Thanks

    The operative word here is NEW, Why not take it to the dealer you purchased it from?

    As for Ideas, bad switch, broken wire, bad plug, improperly set wire in plug, bad throttle motor assembly, corrosion in the connections, bad connection.

    do you get power to the throttle motor? how many volts? are both wires attached to the throttle motor?

    Have someone operate the throttle control from the cab Sander does not have to be running just the ignition on and controller in on position, If you are getting power to the throttle control at the motor then My guess would be you need a new throttle control on the motor If not then it has to be in the control

    Depending on if you are running up or down on the throttle will determine what wire is hot so check both wires

    Part Number for the throttle control at the motor is a 1410709 from Salt Dogg

    I know this sounds dumb, but is the spot where the cab wiring connects to the salter wiring fully connected? (just speaking from dumb experince with the plug being half way unpluged)

    If so, check the wiring going to the throttle as said in the previous post.

    With a volt meter, if you test the two wires hooking to the throttle control: you should see 12v+ across the two wires with the switch clicked to throttle up, and 12v- when you select throttle down. the positive and negitive alternate wires controlled by the cab control box.
