I have a John Deere 450h dozer that won’t start

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Construction Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Tested the solenoid. It Is getting power from the battery but nothing from the ignition.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the construction mechanic to know before I connect you?

I’m fixing it myself but I’m new to dozers.
