Is there a separate fuse for this stuff?
I don't think so. Time to get out your multimeter... Is it an actual bulb or an LED? i.e. could it have blown?

This isn't a new engine is it? Check all the connections and wiring for signs of corrosion.

Honda BF10 remotes

Thank you.

There's usually a little micro switch in the control box that stops the motor from being started in gear, when these go wrong, they should be replaced but some people just bypass them :-(

I have a bf10 (2006) I can take pictures of the control box wiring if needed?
