carb prob is most likely needle and seat stuck pull fuel bowl off. slide pin holding the float and clean the needle jet attatched to float. reasemble float and test. fuel should stop flowinng when u hold float up. put bowl back on and your away.
When I got my Tao Tao, it would only start by remote start only ( pressing the "lightning bolt" button twice on the remote)... then I called the dealer and found out you have to press down on the foot brake AND pull in (firmly) on the hand brake (make sure manual kill switch is in "run" mode) and with both brakes depressed, press ignition button...if that doesnt work, try pressing the "unlock" button on the remote, and repeat the step above
