    new to me 05 F12 non turbo wont crank

    I took a chance on this 05 F12 it had a brand new trailer so I bought it. The guy that had it claimed it just died while riding. He said it would crank but wouldn't start so He carried it to a shop in Myrtle Beach and they told him the throttle body needed replaced but he said they wanted almost $1700 so he didn't have it done. When I went to look at the ski it wouldn't crank, it just made some buzzing and clicking sounds and I noticed when I put on the lanyard there weren't any beeps like my 02 turbo? I can hear the fuel pump run, dash lights up but I don't hear anything from the starter at all, no clicks or anything. Well today I pulled the air box off and there was some sand in the opening of the throttle body and it was stuck open. I sprayed it up and it was easy to free up. I don't see any sand in the air box. I checked the main relay which checked good but I switched it with the one from my turbo and no change so I opened the starter relay box and it looks like brand new so I figured the main ground wire, it all looks like new. I'm not sure where the problem is but I don't think the starter is even trying to spin?

    Are you getting power to the lug on the starter? If not are you getting power where that wire comes from?
