Simplicity Legend won't start. I think the battery is ok. I'm guessing one of the safety switches needs to be replaced. How can I check?

    Do you have a wiring diagram?

    Is there any response from the mower when turning the ignition key to start?

1999 simplicity landlord tractor doesn't start

Does it crank? There are a myriad of issues to check

Dead battery
Bad battery connections
Safety switches not all in right setting (like a PTO/mower deck turned on that needs to be off for starting, or a brake pedal not pressed, or a seat not sat on)
Bad solenoid
Bad fuse
Bad relay
Bad starter switch

More details can narrow it greatly. Have you tried jumping it? Do you get noise when you turn the key? Was it an all of a sudden problem, a growing intermittent one, have you tested the voltage of the battery or tried charging it? Etc.

It won't crank

I would think one of your safety switches aren't making. Could be the seat switch, neutral lever isn't made, blade engagement lever is in the engaged position and this will not allow the motor to be turned over. Try that!

Car won't start

A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. Also check the ground connections.

It won't turn over

Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...

Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

Checked fuses all of them r good the bike will not start has new battery

Check the safety switches, specifically the neutral detect and clutch safety.
If the bike thinks it's in gear, or that the clutch isn't pulled in, it won't start!
Check the wiring to the starter relay.

Triumph Rocket 3 has stalled. No power to headlights. Do have power to horn and turn indicators. All fuses are ok. Have checked and charged battery. With ignition key in on position there is still no power...

Hi, Serge_nojin before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter have failed or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.
