    I'm stumped. When I turm the key no happens. I put a test light on the on the whole electrical system and it is good. Fuses are good. It just will not turn over (Battery is good). Ideas?

    Update. The power stop at the a solenoid on the frame. I tried to bypass it with a screwdriver but no luck. Any ideas

    Sounds like a safety switch is bad. or the solenoid itself. or a combination of the 2. or a wire corresponding with either of those. i would put my money of a safety switch.

    Check ur grounds in the starter circuit. If all grounds good, and u have power to the solenoid. Then starter is bad. Pul starter and test. Easy way to do this: Use jumpers from battery charger or other good battery. Connect black to body of starter. And just touch red to starter terminal. (on external solenoid use terminal, on starters with solenoid on starter touch terminal that has braided metal wire going to starter.) BTW do a load test on battery

    make sure you have 12 volts to the starter.

    check your oil sentry switch-if so equipped. if its faulty and doesn't ground out, your engine may not starter (some are equipped with kill switches, mainly consumer models). to bypass, disconnect wire from oil sentry switch and ground it.

    um, nevermind that-oil sentry grounds out the ignition and kills it.
