The parking brake and right and left control switches are actually double switches. One half of the switch is normally closed, the other half is normally open. They each have 4 wires going into them.

I would just start by checking for power at the small terminal on the starter solenoid and working back from there. If you are getting power there when the key is turned to start, then you have a solenoid/starter problem. If no power then work backwards toward the keyswitch and battery.

Attached are a couple of files. One is a version of the wiring diagram with opposed to the black/white one on Bobcat parts lookup. The other is each part of the harness broken down more simply. So you can figure out why the engine wont turn over by using the "START" circuit and if you have no spark use the "INTERLOCK" circuit or "BRAKE" circuit one...either of those can ground the ignition wire.
Thank God for this. Its exactly what iv been looking for.
