Is it in gear. I'm not familiar with your machine but my 2013 500 will not start in gear unless the brake is held. Yours doesn't have a park position I don't thing.

I think you're on the right track there. Gearshifter linkages are all good?

Yes shift linkages seem to have the right track and functionality. no broken or loose linkages.

If the lights don't work the problem is not in the starting system.Put a volt meter on the battery and check the voltage as you try to start it.

Run a wire from the - post on the battery to the starter mount and a wire from the + post on the battery to the post on the starter and see if the starter turns over.Also check the voltage of the battery I have already got 2 batteries that were bad new they were new.The key doesn't have to on to check the starter when it's wired right from the battery.
