You need to plurge you carb and make sure your choke is working the way u plurge your carb is pull the drain screw on the bottom of carb and pump yuor hand ball on your fuel line this will run any excess oil,water or crude out of the carb you need to check you idle by pulling the throtle cable off and turn the brass or black barrel to the right to up the idle if that doesnt work you need to pull the carb and run a peice of a wire wheel through the pilot jet witch is the smallest brass jet in carb if that jet is cloged it will not idle

Sounds like a blown fuse. Some systems use an "Ign" fuse. That means ignition. The reason why it starts, is the starter solenoid is powering the coil. There might be a ballast resistor in line to the coil. You could check that with an ohm meter.

Merc has changed their ignition system on a "need to know" basis. So more info is better.
