Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
My Dad recently died and Mom has asked me to try and get the Lawnmower started. First battery was dead, new battery doesn't turn anything over. I only get a light that says starting sequence is wrong. I've followed the exact steps. Seems like there is a shutoff switch not working. I checked the seat, etc. seems to be connected.
Actually, there are only 3 safety switches....Seat switch, clutch/brake switch and pto (blade engagement) switch, none of which may be the problem. First, make sure the starter solenoid is good and the posts and harness connector on the ignition switch are clean, not corroded.

Check to make sure battery is above 12.3 volts, secondly bypass the solenoid to the starter by using jumper cables and see if the starter works, if so, you sureley have a safety switch problem, I beleive you have five on this model,
