    no because the batterys still pretty new, less than a year old, and i just checked no corrosion on the battery itself, does anyone no which fuse might cause this problem, i have some replacements but not sure wich to replace

    GET SOMEONE TO JUMP START YOU! the battery must have atleast 10.5 volts before the starter will engage. Just cuz a battery is new doesn't mean anything, I've had 3 different batteries brand new , have a dead cell in them
