Try and after you turn the key "ON" let the fuel pump run for a few seconds longer before you push the start button, see if that helps.2016 kodiak starts then dies on first start. I have tried giving it some throttle but it still dies. So far it always starts on the second try, any ideas? Its getting annoying.
Wouldn't start again today at -17* Celsius/ 1.4 * Fahrenheit. Will try running 0W30 see if it makes a difference.
I agree, I never touch the throttle when starting a fuel injected truck or ATV. It's a habit I developed when I got my first Fuel injected vehicle.I'm not sure if it will make a difference and I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anything about it but on my older carberated 89 Big Bear, and 2000 Kodiak to not touch the throttle while starting. I also know that on the modern fuel injected and even the throttle body injection that we have on the new Kodiak's they say not to use the throttle either. So you might give that a try if you haven't tried it yet. I know on my older ATV's that if you tried to give it some gas that it would not start right up.
