    Looks like you've been doing some studying.
    Time to start stabbing some wires with a small needle or pin and your Volt ohm meter looking at inputs and outputs.

    Jeffrey did you try bypassing your controller yet, that's gonna tell you if it's bad, I believe if you run power directly from the battery to the ignition, then use a jumper wire from the battery to the starter it should fire up, before you do all that check the starter to see if you have a slam button on it, it would be on the end of your solenoid, if you do then you won't need to use the jumper wire, remember before you jump it unplug the green wire from the starter so if your controller is good you don't burn it up, hope that helps.

    I am stumped, are you getting power from the ignition module?
    Longshot but also check the headlight harness, they have been known to melt and could be grounding it out.

    I am another enthusiastic fan of D O C's EHC. I recall that in your case, you will be dealing with a system that has already been modified with the WP.
    I know many here have Axel's unit and are pleased with it, but I would think in your case, immediate customer support would be important if you encounter issues with the install. You'll not find a smarter or more dedicated product support person than Jeff Moore. As cdogg just said, you wanna install a new EHC, call Jeff. The product is superior, instructions flawless, and the procedures are easily followed. Not at all familiar with what has to happen to replace a WP, but bet your ass Jeff does.

    I used to have the wp, the install is as easy as throwing the wp in the trash. Drilling one mounting hole for the unit and routing the wiring through the backbone. Took about an hour to install. Quality product

    What do I know but it is questionable to be overly certain the problem and solution is always the same in every case ...
