I know this topic has been beat to death, but I can't find any examples of what my issue is. Brand new battery and all fuses are good. When I connect the lanyard, I get short beeps and it won't stop. Nothing happens when I push the start button. If I push really hard on the lanyard and push the start, I will hear the click of what I think is the starter selonoid.

does this sound like a bad post or a bad lanyard?

I don't have a dealer near by and don't want to randomly throw money at it.
