Hello. My name is Tan.

There is a fuse on the power supply to the fuse panel. This is a red wire with an inline fuse holder or circuit breaker on the positive side of the battery. Check that fuse or breaker. If that fuse is good then we will need a volt meter to check for voltage loss. On the trim what is the make, model and serial number of the engine?
