Not sure what model you have -is it a 2N??? but, if when the starter button on the shift cover is depressed, and nothing happens or only a click, it might be a poor/dead battery. Have you had the battery serviced? I don't mean simply slapping the charger on it, but taking it in to a reliable shop so they can test it properly, under load, on the right piece of test equipment. Start there and then look at the Wiring Pictograms by JMOR (see LINK) for your config and begin tracing the wiring from it. Use the proper gauge battery cables as John stated too. I always suggest when troubleshooting electrical issues to start first with a good battery and tracing the wiring, and, if trouble persists, by taking the lighting system out of the equation too by disconnecting them altogether. Once root cause is determined and problem solved, you can always reconnect them. Hope this helps you...
