Electrical/ignition issue? Please help

Hello !
I am trying to fix my buddy's foreman. When I turn the key to "on", it only sometimes lights up. Some advice, please on what do do first? We live in a saltwater jungle where things corrode quickly.
Thank you!!

I would check fuses for corrosion and test the ignition switch. Red and black are your main wires and should have continuity with the switch on.

Check your battery cables. I would take them off, and scrub the ends, and then reconnect.
