Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Do you have power from the switch to the starter solenoid ? What you should have is a battery lead going to the starter relay / solenoid. a battery lead coming from the relay / solenoid to the starter and a 12 or 14 gauge wire coming from the switch to the relay solenoid. Depending on the age of the machine this wire may actually go direct to the solenoid or it may have to go through a couple of safety switches. the first thing I would check is make sure you have power coming out of the starter switch to the start circuit. The terminal on the switch is usually marked with an s for starter / solenoid. If you have power coming out from here then trace this wire to either a safety switch or relay solenoid, keep checking for 12 vdc until you dont have power and you will either find the problem or the bad part... hope this helps you
