 Gator 6x4 won't start Need Help

Cold morning (below freezing), attempted to crank and Gator won't start. Lights work, electric fuel pump works, dump bed works. Pulled battery, had it tested under load, OK. Installed back in Gator, now won't start and nothing works, not even the lights on the dash. Can't find fuse box. NEED HELP!!

 Gator 6x4 won't start Need Help

I'll bet you don't like those freezing mornings in Florida. I'm guessing when you put the battery back in you did something wrong to not have it back to where it was. All terminals should be clean and tight, red to + and black to -, make sure you put all the wires back on, sometimes one falls down behind something and you miss it. When you get it back to where it was, start with the neutral switch on the transaxle. Unplug it and put a jumper wire in the plug in the harness and try to start it. Also make sure the blk/wht wire coming out of the 6 prong engine harness is grounded. There is also a start relay on the frame rail next to the regulator. Feel it and see if it is working when you turn the key to the start position. There is a red wire that plugs into a spade connection on the starter. Pull it off. stick a test light probe in it and see if it gets hot when you turn the key to start. Let me know what you find on each and we can go from there.

Thank you so much for your email. I did exactly what you told me to, and the problem was with the neutral switch on the transaxle. I also found a frayed wire from the ignition switch which caused enough of a problem that it burned out one section of my ignition switch. I fixed it, it cranked, and I thank you for taking your time to help me.
