Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Are the batteries in the loop or not? Battery disconnect solenoid switch set correctly? I am on my way to my shop so give me about 30 minutes on the response.

H​ave you load tested the batteries to be sure they are good? Most that are over 3 years old are suspect. They won't fully charge or hold any amperage.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
they are fully charged
Expert:  Randall replied 2 months ago.

So the engine won't turn over or it has no power?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.

What happens when your try the auxillary start button?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
where would that be
Expert:  Randall replied 2 months ago.

U​sually on the dash on the left side. Says "Aux Start" or similar. It hooks all the batteries together so you can use the house batteries to assist the starting.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
there is a picture of a battery on it in red on a switch ? If that is it do I turn the key on
Expert:  Randall replied 2 months ago.

I think that would be it. Push that or turn it on and then try to start it.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
hold it in and try starting with the key ?
