curtis b :

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Do you get any clicking when key is turned to start? Do you have a voltmeter to test the battery and system? Have you checked the battery cables at the battery and where the negative bolts to the frame, and where the positive goes to the solenoid?

JACUSTOMER-w8poqb2w- :

no clicking. no voltmeter. i have not checked anything yet. i do not know where to start. I just charged the battery with a battery tender.

JACUSTOMER-w8poqb2w- :

Well, I have checked the seat switch and it seems to be working correctly.

Voltmeter about $15.00 at retail or auto supply.
