Does the engine turn over and the engine just won't start or doe sthe engine not turn over at all.If it DOES turn over but won't start, you could have a seat switch that is bad or the electronic ignition is bad and needs replaced.If it turns over, check the engine for spark buy taking the plug out and set it on the cylinder head. HAve someone turn the engine over and like for spark. IF no spark, then it is most likely either the seat switch or the ignition coil. IF it will not turn over. then it could be that you have a brake switch bad or a bad solenoid, or possible the ignition switch.
