No electric start

Honda 91 300 will not start with electric start. Battery is good. Once it is running you can press the start button then it will turn over. With the key on no electrical will work. I can start it off with a screw driver from solenoid. I'm thinking maybe just the control box. Any pointers where I should start from would be great. Thanks

Welcome to the forums. I agree with Toyota, check your fuses.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
