First thing to do is to locate the powerpack on the engine. It is the ignition module with all the wires going to it.Take the cover off and locate the black wire with the yellow stripe. unscrew the screw and remove the wire. Move it out of the way. Now crank the engine and see if it starts and runs. If so replace the key switch.Post back what you get and we can go from there.Thanks
