Default MEP 803A Won't Crank at Start Switch

My mep 803a was working just fine. I turned it off and when I went back to restart..nothing at the start switch. It will dead crank and I hear the fuel pump kick in when I turn the switch but nothing at the start position. E switch is out and battle short in off position. Any suggestions as to directions of inquiry would be greatly appreciated.

Try messaging Zarathustra. He might possibly help.

this is an old thread,but just to answer,check the DC circuit breaker inside the control panel..its on a metal tab that sticks out from the inside of the control panel near the tap switch.Somtimes this breaker will pop out or trip if there's a fault in the wiring..sometimes they get weak as well.I'm assuming that you already checked the dead crank switch inside the engine compartment L side door.Best of luck.
