SOURCE: Craftsman LT 1000 I replaced the battery,

be sure you are sitting on the mower with the clutch pedal pushed down,blade engagement in off position,
there may be a safety switch bad or a wire pulled off of one or more of them or a bad starter solenoid which is a high failure item.
Check safety seat switch wires under seat,look under mower for clutch pedal switch wires located under mower near clutch pedal, check the blade safety switch if its a manual blade engagement? The (starter solenoid) you will need to find the red wire on your battery and follow it until you find it or from the starters red wire back towards battery.
Once you find it inspect the solenoid to be sure wires are in tact,then find a dc volt meter and check to see if you have voltage(12volts dc min.) to the small red wire hooked to the solenoids coil (near the bottom) when the the ignition key is turned to start position(one of your meters wire to the coil wire and one to a good ground,,if your meter goes backwards reverse the meter leads)Note:lock the clutch pedal down before you do this) If you have voltage to this wire when key is turned to start position? solenoid is most likely bad or if you dont have voltage trace that wire backwards until you find voltage then you may have found your culprit.

Ignition problem

Check if the small wire on the starter has power with the key held in crank position. If battery voltage there, either bad battery cables or connections, or the starter solenoid has a malfunction. If no power when key held in start, it could be the safety switch (a clutch interlock switch on manual transmissions, or a park/neutral switch on automatics). You may need a wiring diagram to see the start circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid-some have a start relay in that circuit.

1993 Cadillac Sedan DeVille won't crank. When I turn the key to start nothing happens. Checked maxi fuses and replace the blown one on the ignition. Still solved nothing. Car only has 87000 miles on it...

Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? How to use a DMM - digital multi-meter to test automotive electrical circuit's ? Do you know about automotive relay circuit's ,how they work ? First off ,your security light ,is it lit on the instrument cluster ? Your vehicle has a starter enable relay ,which is energized by the PASS-KEY 2
decoder module . Testing at the relay can be done to see if the module is turning the relay on which would send ignition switch B+ voltage to the park neutral safety switch on to the starter solenoid . energizing the starter .

I have a 1982 dodge ram w150 318 4 speed when i turn the key i lose everything let me start from the beginning my truck started up then died then when I went to restart I heard a thunk then nothing last...

What happens when you turn the key to on? Do the warning lights and gauges come on? Turning the key to start, do the lights and gauges stay on? Just nothing at the starter?

Or does power just shut off when you turn the key to start, everything goes out, no warning lights or gauges? Then check cables, battery terminals, grounds for clean tight connections. There is a problem between the battery and the ignition switch.

If the switch still receives and sends power out (to the dash, for one) but start circuit is not working (from battery to ignition switch to clutch switch to starter relay to starter solenoid to starter to ground-and back to battery), then here's where we at: with key off, use a small screwdriver and short the big cable at starter to the starter solenoid small wire connection, or use a small jumper wire to do the same-battery cable at starter to the small wire connection on the starter solenoid. Starter motor should spin and crank engine. Does it? If so, start checking the start wire out of ignition switch for power when key is held in start. If you have a clutch switch, check for power in with key in start. Should have battery voltage to the clutch switch with key held in start. Keep checking the start wire along the start circuit. Not sure how the start relay is wired into the circuit, would have to see a diagram, but if you pull the relay out and use a test light or multi meter, could check for power on the terminals where relay plugs in. Key off, should have one terminal that is hot. With key held in start, at least one other terminal should also be hot. This would be the start wire out of ignition switch sending a signal to the relay.
Good luck, hope you find it. Sorry I don't have a wiring diagram to help you more.

Radiator Fan always on.

Doesn't take a technical engineer to find what could be the problem ! Looking a wiring diagram I see three relays that are used to turn on the cooling fans ! One of the relay's contacts are stuck closed causing Battery voltage to be applied to one of the fans when you turn the key to the on position . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .
