    You need to see how many amps the starter is pulling BUT it sounds like the starter is dead or the relay.

    Check to see if the starter is getting power

    use a 12 volt light with test clip wires I am not sure if you can get to the POS post on the stater and put one wire clip on the post making sure that it is not touching anything and clip it to the test light or bulb and run a wire to ground from the bulb or test light.

    I like Alligator Clip Test Leads or a test light with the clips to keep my hands free to hit the starter button

    Or clip onto the leads of a spare a trailer light or just a bulb

    Hope this helps PM me if you need pictures of the bulb set up
