Hi Scott my name is Kenny,

Couple of thing first, was the battery replaced recently ?

Have you checked any of the fuses ?

Do you have a multi-meter ?

Thanks

I charged the battery for a 24 hour period. when i put my meter on it it was reading just under 13v
- i have checked all of the fuses and they are good
- i have a multi-meter

OK Scott thanks

Lets try this

1.) Key off measure battery voltage.

2.) With meter hooked up, turn key on while observing the meter (record voltage)

3.) Key on, observing meter, hit the starter button, (record voltage)
