re: Riding mower won't start

Similar issue here:

No click or crank:
-Replaced Battery
-Repacked Solenoid
-Replaced ignition switch because my dumb arse opened it and all of the springs flew out
-Tested all safety switches for continuity and all are good it seems.

I can jump by the screwdriver method easily....



Do you have voltage at the solenoid from the ignition switch? If not, and the switch is considered good because you just bought it, (for the record I used to sell auto parts and sometimes they were bad off the shelf so I never trust that a new part will work...I test if I can (non-destructive of course) then I'd be looking for either (a) a fuse issue (My John Deere has a fuse/fusible link that could open causing the failure or (b) a broke wire/broke path somewhere.

re: Riding mower won't start
Yeah checked voltage at the switch no dice. I am thinking the same as you that perhaps it is a broken ground or perhaps fusible link. Time to break out the schematics.

they all have inline fuses, they hide them damn things so well its hard as hell to find them sometimes.

look on the rear panel if you see a small metal clip, if you do then thats the fuse holder and the fuse is on the other side, sometimes you even have to remove the battery to get to it. if its not there then its in the steering column and you may have to remove the gas tank to trace the wires to find it. it will have the same metal clip holding it on somewhere
