Okay,  brand new machine just came off the boat a few days ago, second ride was today.   Has 2:20 on the engine and about 60 miles.  Throttle stopped responding,  engine shut off, started again stopped responding backfired and check engine light came on and engine died.  Thoughts?

Well I hope that isn't the thing since we technically are the dealer but aren't the dealer since the dealer is in Winnipeg and we're in the Arctic and sell them we have a buds computer but I can't find where the defender hopes up since it's not where are our Motorsports division tells me it should be

Living in Puvirnituq right now was either being sent here or Pangritung. 

 

Found the plug under the hood like you guys said thank you since the guy in Motorsports down in Winnipeg kept arguing with me that it was under the glove box. We then had issue after issue with the buds computer but we had one shipped in from another community so I'm about to go hook it up and see what it says

Hi Chad, like I said on your other post check the wiring thoroughly because squirrels tend to chew the plastic off wires for entertainment and you may have some bare wires as well. Open up your air filter and check it, its probably full of pine cones.  Your dealer should have serviced this before shipping but instead just loaded it and shipped it. Did your Defender come in a container or was it fully assembled? If assembled this should have been obvious. 🤔

Came fully assembled,  the hondas that were shipped to us were created, I still have to pull them out of the sea canister and assemble them. 

 

Fault code T0106, pressure sensor on the cylinder head apparently but did find this.

 

Still pissed off this was sold to me as brand new,  but since I work for the company I have to play this with kids gloves.

You are making progress and thats good unfortunatley this could have been prevented if the folks in Winnipeg had done a proper PDI. I hope your up and running soon because you don't get compensated for loss of use.🙂

So after doing wire traces writing a message with the buds computer on Startup finding lots of loose screws and bolts and ones that were just rolling around the cab area I decided to refund the machine and send it back to head office on the next sealift out. So I'm no longer I Defender owner sadly because I did enjoy the machine when it wasn't dying my company has nothing in stock right now because can an apparently isn't really making much so I bought an ATV for now and next year or the year after on the Summers sealift on my tat going to send up an HD 8 a Maverick Trail or Commander 800 the commander 800 in the Maverick Trail where the two I was actually looking at before I pick up the hd5 and I only picked up the hd5 because I was guaranteed to get it because they had it in stock at the warehouse and the others we had to wait to see if they were able to get any
