Hi there. The starting system needs to be checked to see if it is getting voltage. If there is no power getting to the starter then the clutch switch needs to be checked. If the clutch switch fails then the starter circuit will not work. If there is power there and still not at the starter then the starter relay and ignition switch will need to be tested. Most of the time this is a clutch switch problem.
