Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have an older Craftsman Lawn Tractor - mowing lawn today and all runs fine. Turn off and go inside for a Bio Break - come back out and it is dead - no sound when starter key is turned. I think the starter key may not have been all they way in the OFF position. Wonder if something fried in the starter circuit. Battery has good juice still.
Specifics - Craftsman 12 H.P. mower model number 502254982 although it has a repalcement motor installed.
I have electrical diagram - variances are that seat safety switch has long been bypassed, headlights no longer installed.
I don;t know what voltages to look for where and at which switch setting to determine where the circuit might be breaking down.
Make sure you mower deck is not still engaged. that might make it not start with that safety switch.
