Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you checked the fuses on the machine? You may have blown a fuse when the battery was hooked up wrong.
You get nothing when the key is turned? Do you have a volt meter?
It could but I would want to do more test before just telling you to replace it.
You don't hear any noises or anything when trying to start?
Do you have a 12 volt test light by chance? I would want to know if you are getting power to the ignition switch but in order to find out we need a tester.
Good. Can you get to the back of the ignition switch. If so, located the red wire going into the back of the switch and tell me it you have voltage on that wire.
