Unhappy Dixon ZTR Model 429 made 1989

Put new starter in and ignition switch and still cannot get it to turn over. It will start if I pull it but turn the key and nothing happens, sometimes the lights work when I turn the key on and sometimes they won't. Has a Kawasaki FC420V Engine and I'm Wondering if there is a Jumper Wire or is it a switch? Really need help, is there a Dixon Mechanic Out There, If So Help!!!!!!!!

Have you checked the battery? How many volts does the battery show?

Voltage

Bought New Charger and shows still charging at 2amp. but also shows 100%. Now for the Voltage Answer the New Charger has a Volt meter on it and shows, 15amp=16v, 10amp=16, 2amp=16v. What's going on? Thanks

Those readings don't show what the battery voltage is except for when the charger is charging. Are the battery terminals and connections clean and tight?

Found Problem

Thanks for your help, found out the ignition switch was acting strange, turned the key just past run a little bit and it took off, turned it all the way to start and nothing, it seems that I got a bad switch or a really touchy one and the later seems to be what I got. Terminals are clean now. Thanks Much
