Transmission in neutral, neutral light ON.

What happens (if anything) when you press the starter button....??

Does the starter run when you press the starter button...but.... the engine will not start.???

Do you have the Engine Shut-Off "Kill" switch in the "RUN" position....??

Any other information for us....??

Did you find relay A and B? Did both click because they should. If so hold the button and test the big cables. There should be power on both terminals (studs) on both relays. That would be all 4 studs showing 12 volts. Check back.

1. Remove the right side panel (the one to access the battery).

2. Have the transmission in "neutral".

3. Turn the ignition switch ON.

4. Press the starter switch (button).

Do you hear a click at the Starter Relay A (located to the right of the battery)...??? There will be "two" large battery type cables connected to the Starter Relay A. Make sure they are clean and tight...!!

If you hear the click, the starter switch (button) is working.

5. Use "two' large screwdrivers to connect "jump" from one terminal to the other terminal on the Starter Relay A.. The starter should run and the engine should start.....!!

Note: There will be a "significant spark" when you do this jump...!! That's OK.....!!

If the starter runs and the engine starts, you have a faulty/bad starter relay A.

Come back with results......!!!!
