You need to clean all the batt. and starter solenoid connections.
make sure they are tight
make sure to clean batt neg wire at body connection
check your fuse link to starter from battery,
a 6 inch section of thinner wire designed to burn out to protect starter. this is why you can jump starter you bypass the blown fuse link.
Did it have compression before you bought it?
No power to the electric starter? Then you probably have no power to the ignition system. I'd check battery connections. Is the battery going flat overnight? Some shorts. Is there an ignition with a key? Is the switch good? or all the connections good? Corrosion does some funny things. Fuses may look good but actually are not.
Some vacuums have a reset button you can push. Some have a fuse in the power line that may have blown. You will have to follow the power all the way through the vacuum checking the voltage at each switch, connection, etc. I often unhook the power & neutral wires from the motor and hook up a power cord with connectors on the end directly to the motor to make sure the motor is good. You must be very knowledgable with motors, switches, electrical testing, etc. If not this repair is best left to a professional.
If the lights won't even come on, the spark plugs are not the cause of that problem.
Make sure the battery cables at the opposite ends from the battery are connected tight and corrosion free.
Check that all the fuses are good.
For some reason the power isn't getting from the battery (if it is in fact charged up) to the electrical circuit (blown fuse, loose/disconnected wire, etc).
TAKE IT OUT AND TRY IT ON A 12V BATERRY AND IF IT TURNS ON ITS GOOD AND IF IT DOESNT IS NOT GOOD. IF IT TURNS ON FOLLOW UR CONSTAN AND UR POWER WIRES AND SEE IF IT HAS A FUSE BOX IN THE BOAT/ CHECK THOSE FUSES. AND CHECK UR BOAT BATTERY TOO CAUSE IT COULD HAVE DIED WHEN TESTING THE STEREO TOO IT HAPPENS ALOT ON BOATS
The first thing I would check is if your fuse is okay. If your fuse is blown replace and try to turn on the radio. If the fuse is good have the radio taken out and have it bench tested. take the power wire and the memory wire put them together and apply power to them then take the black wire and connect it to ground if the radio turns on then its okay and he fried something else. If the radio doesn't turn on then chances are that he fried it.
You can use a car battery to test your radio or a portable boost jumper.
