Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check / clean the STARTer button switch internally;
  • • there is a hidden headlight cutoff switch;
  • • that turns off the headlight supply when starting;
  • • for test purposes, jump the black/red and the blue/white wires.
