Ok

So the engine is not spinning? Is the neutral switch working? If you follow the positive cable to the starter and jump the switch wire to the cable, will the engine spin? Parking brake applied?

Would love to jump the solenoid but I can’t see it from the top or the bottom
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Check the park brake switch, and the neutral switch, either will keep the starter from working.

With key held in start position I have moved shuttle and park switch. Sound changes so I assume they are functioning properly
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 1 year ago

Have you checked the voltage at the battery when you turn the key to start? If the voltage is dropping to 9 volts, you have a starter problem.
