During this time the battery was removed and ignition was replaced (in addition to running gear and several other items). I have run it twice since I got it back over the past month. Today I can’t get it to start and could use some advice. The dash controls come up when I use the touchscreen. However the Ignition key doesn’t seem to do anything. Neither will get the engine to start. Just a click and complete silence. As an aside, I noticed there is a wire that is not attached in the battery compartment. I also only see 3 wires attached to the 4 position ignition switch. Since both the battery and ignition switch were replaced by the shop I wonder it there might be an issue related to these. Im going to try to post some photos. If anyone can help It would be much appreciated!

Remove all those battery connections one at a time and clean thoroughly. Then go to the starter and engine ground wire and repeat. They are quite corroded.

Your voltage is really low. I agree with @formulaben that it’s most likely a loose ground or power connection that is not allowing the battery to be charged.

I bet that if you put a charger on the battery it would start right up.
