Are you looking for some possib le causes or would you like me to walk you through this diagnoses?

Expert:  Amedee replied 8 months ago.

Are you sure that the battery is not bad? Even if it has a charge, it may just simply be bad. Check the battery voltage under a load. It should not drop below about 10 volts when trying to start the engine. If so, chances are the battery is bad and will need to be replaced. If this checks out good, then I would suspect a bad connection at or after the battery or even a blown fuse or fusible link. Please send me your engine size so I can pull a wiring diagram for you.
