Yamaha bear tracker neutral light and start button wont work

I have a 2004 Yamaha 250fym Bear Tracker in excellent condition. I parked it last winter in my garage and it worked fine. Now, the neutral light will not come on until it is cranked up by pull rope or jumping the starter off by the solenoid. The push button start will not make a sound when pushed. The run switch works and the headlight switch works. I have put on a new ignition switch, new solenoid switch and checked and cleaned all the ground wires and wire connections and the neutral light does not come un when the key is turned on and the starter switch does not fire up the starter. What else could be wrong? I am a disabled Marine Corp Veteran and depend on this 4 wheeler to get me to and from my hunting area.

Welcome to the forum.

Sounds like there is some corrosion along your wiring. I think it will just take some time going through all of it. Remove your start switch from the bars, closely looking at it..

I will move this to the correct sub forum.
