If you flip key on and off, does the fule solenoid click with key? It should click when key is turned on and off. If it does not click, you likley have no voltage to the keyswitch. Have you located the ignition fuse and checked it? If keyswitch has voltage, then likely one of the safety switches is not completing the start circuit.Seat switch, brake switch, arm switches.
