Hopefully between the list, and simple deduction will put u on the right path.
His starter is running, that indicates the ignition fuse, ignition relay, Bank Angle Sensor and Kill switch are all good.

On his 1998, the starter will not run unless there is power to the Kill switch and it is in the run position.

The battery and fuel supply are possibilities. Remote possibility of a couple other items.

I suspect we have given him enough suggestions to find the problem.
