Battery voltage good? Have you eliminated the emergency kill switch on the left control?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
battery voltage has over 13. this is a golf cart not motor cycle or atv.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
it does not have a emergency switch cut off
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 6 months ago.

Sorry, I knew that but had an ATV in my weak mind! Need to locate the kill switch at the foot pedal linkage and unplug it and test for spark. The kill switch may be affecting the spark.
