Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

I see you been waiting for awhile

if the lights go out when you turn the key

2 things to cause this , a faulty battery with a dead cell

or poor/dirty connection

check the voltage at the battery 1st , before and during starting

should be 13.7 before, and 11.5 during

let me know

Wayne, I have a brand new battery, tested . I have replaced the ground cable on the battery, I have power going from battery to starter, ignition. I have replaced the glo plug reley, I have no idea what it could be. when I turn the key and step on the forward pedal the panel light for the thermastsat comes on. to me the 52.00 was not spent wisely so if I could I would like to get refunded.
