    Xl1200 gauge malfunction=no start?

    Got a 98 XL 1200 does absolutely nothing when the starter button is pushed. Brought up a wiring diagram and saw that the power goes from the solenoid to the gauge then the lanyard switch, then back to the solenoid . There's power going into the gauge from the constant, the wire thatr goes to the lanyard switch from the gauge has no power under any circumstances. When I hook up 12 volts to the red wire at the lanyard switch it will turn over. I haven't been able to get the gauge display to turn on by any means. The one thing I haven't checked is the grounds at the gauge but it seems so far that the gauge is bad. Does(Checking grounds soin) this sound correct?
