Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

If you already replaced the starter fuse then this is going to take some troubleshooting in order to figure out where the loss of voltage is happening. Do you have a hand held volt meter, and do you know how to take voltage measurements?

Hi Brandon, without a volt meter there isn't anything we can test. Did you have any questions, either specific or general for me?
