Hello, my name is***** will assist you.

Are you saying the engine would not spin over or would not start up?

Not spin

Ok, is there only the one battery?

Have you checked the fuses?

There is one battery, have not checked fuses, could the shifter develop a dead spot?
Expert:  Charles replied 1 year ago.

the switch could have become unplugged or gone bad inside the control box. Before tearing into the control, lets focus on the engine for a sec. Remove the hood from the engine. On the front of the engine there are two fuse holders. you want to look at the one on the left. Open it and make sure that all of the fuses are good. It they are, you will need a multimeter to do a few checks.
