Question about Garden

You're saying that it will start if you use a booster battery (jump start)? If it starts and runs but then needs a jump again next time you want to use it, then you have either a bad battery or a bad charging system.

Normally seat switch provides nothing but an ignition kill circuit.
Depending if you have a solenoid the has 2 small wires or 1 It can be loss of ground. Basically is there voltage at solenoid trigger connection? if so is there voltage at the start terminal on ignition switch? If not is there voltage at battery terminal of the ignition switch? If not you probably have a blown fuse.

percussive maintenance my friend. Try banging on the solenoid and starter with a hammer while in the start position. Also, if you have a voltmeter, you can see where voltage is getting to and that will help you as well.

See if there is a plastic connector on the wires leading to the seat switch. If there is try disconnecting it and use a piece of wire (with insulation on it) to use a jumper. There is probably two wires coming from the tractor to the seat. After disconnecting Place one end of wire into the wire connector coming tractor and the other end of wire in the same connector on the other side. That will act like the seat switch is closed like you are setting on it. Try and start. Had the same problem on an electric hyster at work and that was the fix we used because the switch is pretty expensive and a hassle to change.
Hope this helps
