Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

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

Initially, try with the clutch switched bypassed (jumped).

Still, proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check/clean connectors and their pins/terminals of the junction box;
  • • test the interlock diodes inside the junction box.
