I have a sabre garden tractor that keeps blowing the fuse for the ignition i found no bare wiring anywhere.

The only reason a fuse blows is because it got overloaded(too much amps). Most lawn/garden tractors use separate soleniod for the starter and you said it blows a fuse as soon as you turn on the key. At that point the starter wouldn't(or shouldn't) have any current to it at all. A stuck on soleniod would keep the starter engaged till you unhooked one of the battery cables. Find what that fuse protects in electrical system and start looking for bare wires, maybe a wire has rubbed through where it's laying against metal

Try this. Disconnect the one single wire going to the solenoid. Use an ohm meter to see if there is 12 volts DC at this wire when you turn the key switch in the start position. If you have voltage then your solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. If you dont have voltage, check the safety switchs for proper operation.

Will not start fuse ok battery ok they said try new starter, its ok turn key on hear click Sound sounds llik up at carberator, AMP gauge gos negetive and starter will not ingage, belt for mower is...

I would try to jump the starter. Pos cable on the starter then ground out the neg, it the starter turns over that isnt it. then check the smaller wire going to your soleniod, when you turn your key to the start position it should have power. then check to see if there is power from the battery to your soleniod then with the key turned power from the soleniod to the starter.

Will not Start

There won't be any voltage going to the starter until the key is turned to 'start' with the brake locked down. And to check that, you need to disconnect the wire to the starter. I would first check the current going to the solenoid when the switch is turned to start by disconnecting the insulated wire going to the bottom of the solenoid and hooking a test light or voltmeter to it and turn key to start. Again the clutch/brake pedal has to be held/locked down. If there is power going to the solenoid but not to the starter, it's a bad solenoid. Hope I've explained this so you can understand. Dwain
