it's like the kill switch was pulled but it's not. I thought there might be a fuse in the circuit but I can't find any
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.
Part 8 in the diagram is the main fuse, make sure that it is still good.

I have power at the solenoid and can roll the eng over by jumping it but no power is coming from the eng. to the control
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.
Did you already check that fuse? It is not in the main battery lead, it is off to the side.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I hadn't gone behind that cover yet it was first on my list for in the morning. I'm hoping that's it. Thanks!
