I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

How old is the battery? When you flip the key on and off, do you hear a click from the carburetor area? No click, then battery, cables or maybe a blown fuse.
