Hi, my name is ***** ***** I'll be working with you today.
If your lights come on good and bright as they normally do then the first check is of the fuse labeled "Ignition" in your fuse box. It supplies power to the run/stop switch (which engages the fuel pump) and the start button.
Check this and let me know what you find.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. A volt meter will be necessary to do much more troubleshooting. Thanks, P.J.
