Fuses are all good,(unless there is another fuse block other than the one undrer the seat).and the batt is good.Like i said , the display lights up fine and even the brake lights work with tyhe key on and without the engine running

o6 rancher did you find out the problem? I put a working kill switch from a buddys rancher on mine and no luck. Check battery and took apart es/starter button switch assembly looking for corrosion, dirt ect. and it looked fine. I'm at a loss and to make matters worse one in 100 attempts it will fire off with button but 99% of the time have to use recoil. let me know if you or others have any idea

toodeep, everything works except starter button and light switch and that rare time it DOES fire off with starter button (I always try before recoil start) the lights will work too!
