Craftman 18 hp won't start with key


Check Battery. If headlight equipped turn key to headlight on position and see if headlights are lit. No light dead battery dead tractor,

Charge battery. If after charging weak or no start forget the battery and get new, Life of battery is two to three years,

If battery good make sure that parking brake set and blades are not engaged. Safety lockout will prevent tractor from cranking. The tracker has a safety interlock on the seat that requires a body warm or cold sitting on the seat if the parking brake is not set. The seat switch is known to fail. Try bouncing on the seat?

OK if battery OK and seat is sat or park brake set we can assume the safety interlock circuit is disabling the start circuit.

I asked a question about a toro riding mower but it was placed in the cars and trucks catagory


Depends if it is the starter solenoid that is clicking or the fuel solenoid. If it the starter and clicks try jumping the two large posts with a screwdriver that you don't mind damaging. If the starter now turns then it is the solenoid if not then it is starter. If the starter doesn't click then it can be a safety or ignition switch problem.

Looking for the location of the clutch safety switch on an older toro commercial 11-32


Anytime your engaging blades it pulls quite a bit of juice from the battery, so you need to be absolutely sure your battery is good.

It is not uncommon for a safety switch to get misaligned and not work correctly, also it is not uncommon for a switch not to work even if it is engaged.
You need to check all the switches that must all be properly aligned and engaged in order for the engine to start. As for the light blue wire, I am not sure 100% however typically blue wireds on wheel horse equipment are used in the ignition system. Depending on your model it may be the main ignition power line which runs from the ignition switch (S) connection or (start) connection, then goes to PTO interlock switch, then goes to the Pedal interlock switch, then finally to the starter solenoid. Which sounds like where you have to look because along this blue wire at many points and switches, there is a problem either with a connection (the lose blue wire) or a bad interlock switch along it's way to the starter solenoid. You should also check the PTO interlock switch because it also is connected to a kill relay that will prevent the engine from starting id it is faulty (that light click your hearing, the starter solenoid would be a louder click).
There is a typical ignition service manual available at http://www.mywheelhorse.com/graphics/file/Engines/Engine-Electrical_Service-Manual.pdf It has the typical wireing diagram and all the information you will need presuming you have enough electrical background to use a multimeter.
The website at http://www.scribd.com/doc/47347708/Toro-wheelhorse-Demystification-Electical-wiring-diagrams-for-all-WheelHorse-tractors has diagrams specific for each model but you have to make an account (free) to use the website, and lastly the website http://www.mywheelhorse.com is a invaluable website for anyone who owns a Wheel Horse. Let me know what you figure out!

Test the battery with a volt/ohmn meter to ensure it reads at least 12-14 volts. Check all the safety switches located underneath the seat & the mower deck engage handle is disengaged. Check all battery wire connections are soldi, not corroded. Check wiring on starter solenoid from battery & to key switch.

check whatever engages your mower blades. If it has a lever that you lift into place to engage blades try wiggling it while turning the key

Had the mower blades engaged and there must have been a safety switch engaged.
