Have you checked for a blown fuse?
Thanks for this information. Have you checked to see if your fuse is blown?
Was your fuse okay?
Do you hear any clicking at all, when you attempt to start your engine?
Have you checked your battery? Do you have a multimeter? These are only troubleshooting questions ...
Okay. Are you familiar with using a screwdriver, to jump across the two large post on your starter solenoid?
If you have a 12 volt test light, or a multimeter, you and I can check to see if your solenoid is getting power from your ignition switch ...
Remove the small orange wire from your solenoid to test it. This wire should have 12 volts, when your ignition switch is in start position.
When doing this test, make sure your parking brake is on, and your pto is off.
That is correct. Your orange wire should only have voltage when your ignition switch is in start position.
Are you saying that your orange wire have voltage, in start position???
The fire cannot cross to the other side unless your orange have power from your ignition switch.
Can you test the orange wire?
Are you familiar with using jumper wires?
Do you have a small red wire, with a fuse, on your solenoid?
This small red wire attaches to the fire side of your solenoid.
Is it connected to the hot side of your solenoid?
Do you see a small green wire?
This is a ground wire.
Is the green wire grounded to your solenoid?
I apologize for all of the troubleshooting questions ...
What type of test meter do you have?
