I guess I'm missing something. This is a diesel engine. It should remain running after started, even with no battery in place.

Does this model have some sort of electrical shutoff or something?

Just curious,

PS. I have had solenoid trouble in the past that would have fit your set of circumstances. The solenoid is replaceable, but I wouldn't bother unless you have a very good starter. I replaced the solenoid on a jakeleg rebuilt starter to no avail. I've replaced the solenoid a few times on Bosch certified rebuilts and it worked both times.

Good luck, LB
