Here is a link to a parts diagram for reference:

First verify the battery is good by having it load tested. The battery may show fully charged but may not have any reserve capacity when under load. Any auto parts store can do this for you.

If the battery is good then check all of the individual fuses in the fuse box. It is the small black box near the battery and the fuses are #20 in the diagram.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, it would appear that the Foreman is electrically/completely dead. If the battery and fuses are confirmed to be good, then proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check/clean the ground lines to engine, frame and green wire to harness;
  • • presence and consistency of +12V at the red and red/white wires after the battery's + terminal, then before and after the 2-pin connector and then to the fuse box;
  • • and then to and from the ignition switch.
