I bought a Yerfdog GX150 that was not taken care of and was in really bad shape. I bought an upgraded 175CC GY6 with new harnesses both cart and engine (All from BDX). I have everything wired up, but here is my issue, when I hit the start button I get nothing. I can cross the starter solenoid posts with a piece of wire and the motor start and run. I have the brake switch connected together for testing. The kill switch is hooked up and it will kill the motor if I flip it off after I start it with the wire. I get voltage on the brown wire to the start button, but I get nothing. I have replaced with new parts the Starter Solenoid, Rectifier, Auto Choke-Resister. I have tried to bypass the push button with a just connecting the push button leads with wire and nothing is working. I only can get it to start by crossing the posts.

Currently Attached is the old auto-choke.

Try momentarily placing a jumper wire between the light green solenoid wire and ground (not the dark green). This will bypass all of the switches, interlock, and wiring up front. The solenoid should fire immediately and the engine should turn over. Let us know your results.

OK, so if I connect the green wire (on the connection harness) to the ground it WILL turn over. So when I traced it back, if I connect the red "head light" wire and the ground it will also turn over. What do I have wrong?!?!?!
