Pedal has a micro switch, that has to energize the starter solenoid. Located in the box with throttle cable and solenoid. Is the micro switch clicking? Does it have 12 volts to it? Is it sending power to the switch terminal on the solenoid when pedal is pressed?

It clicks an I check it has continuity go thru switches for the throttle cable does ignition actually have anything to do with it its on but could it be bad
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 8 months ago.

If you have battery voltage to the micro switch, the keyswitch is ok. The micro switch has to sen 12 vlts to the switch terminal on the solenoid. If it does, and solenoid does not close, the solenoid is bad!

I put a new solonied in there already I can jump it an it runs an idles there

Then you need to check between the micro switch and the solenoid. Broken wire or bad connection.
