    0k, Take the shifter cover off and you will find a blade type fuse along side the solenoid,Check it and all electrical connections,There are three safety switches one on the clutch pedal one on the blade engaugement handle (under the shifter cover) and the one under the seat. check the plug on the ignition switch. This should keep ya busy till I get home from work....lunch is over!

    Also one more thing,You need to put a voltage tester on the battery and watch it as you turn the key,If this battery has sat for 2 years it couldn't possibly be good.
