Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Test all your fuses for power on both sides with the key switch on and replace any fuses with power only on one side. Check your relays by swapping one at a time with a known good one. Test for power to the fuel shutoff solenoid if a crank no start and if there is no power at the fuel shutoff, test power between the ignition switch, fuses, relays, wiring harness, safety switches etc. If there is power to the fuel shutoff but it is not working replace the faulty fuel shutoff solenoid, Let me know

Thanks for the update. This means you will need to test power from the keyswitch and check your fuses and relays as well as your safety switches and wiring harness for problems. Let me know
