Is your key off?

No really, check the connections at your battery. You might have a loose connection, bad ground, or even the fuse may be blown. If it is the fuse check for bare wires.

It could be that there is a termninal loose somwhere. Is it making any sounds, or is the motor turining over? Check the fuses again, and If my memory is right, the is one under the hood somewhere.

I know 1 time i had stock lights they got to hot & was not making good contact with the connector on the bulb, it had melted, so i had to scrape some plastic out of the way.

It sounds like your starter switch is bad if it they still won't come on. will it shut the quad off? Pull it off of the bars and see if anythings wrong with it, or coroded.

Is the wire on the left side of the motor under the shift lever/oil filter unplugged?
