It sounds as though your ignition switch is not hooked up correctly. Follow the harness from the ignition switch to the bullet connectors under the front body plastic. Make sure the colors all match up.

SOURCE: My polaris sportsman 570 will not start when I put the key and I have power to the lights on the dash but the engine will not turn over. I did turn it off in gear accidently.

If engine does not turn over you need to see if the starter is getting power and if it is any good. Also look for an inline safety switch for the starter that may be stuck in the open position and not allowing the electricity to enter the starter motor.

Hey Shaun,
Since we cannot hear any sounds, its going to be hard to diagnose on here. I would take it to my dealer and ask the service manager to listen and go from there..
