SOURCE: Toro lawn tractor : tractor will not start

On most riding mowers there are several switches that must be actuated before it will start. First, make sure that blades are disengaged. Also, if there is a handle that engages and disengages the blades, you might try holding it in the dis-engage position in case the switch is out of adjustment. There is probably one under the seat also. This switch kills everything if you are not sitting in the seat for safety reasons. The switch here could be out of adjustment or mis-positioned. Also, make sure the parking brake is set, and the gear is in neutral, and not forward or reverse. Also, even if the parking brake is set, you might try pressing the brake all the way down while starting, as this switch might be out of adjustment. All of the switches should be easy to locate and adjust. Also, you should check the battery. It is possible that you left the key on by mistake and drained it.

Hope some of this helps.

SOURCE: starter problems with sears lawn tractor

COuld be the motor or combo of motor and solenoid. They're could also be a ground/positive cable loose or have a bad connnections not allowing the full current to get to the battery. These are fairly simply systems shold be easy to diagnose...

SOURCE: I have a sears lawn tractor with a Kholer courage

No, it sounds to me like it is one of the safety switches is a bit corroded, along with a battery that may not be fully charged, you are not getting enough voltage to turn the engine over. What I would first do it disconnect the battery, take apart all connections of the cables, where it mounts to solenoid, where ground cable connects to the tractor, etc. Then put everything back on. Charge the battery, or jump the tractor to get it started and let it run a bit, which will charge the battery. You may need to check wire connections that go to various safety switches, too. Under the seat, where it connects to the transmission, etc. This does not sound like a big problem at all.

Does a bad battery cause my tractor to not turn over?


Yes. Verify it is the battery by jumping mower off with car battery. If turns over, replace battery. If cannot turnover by jumping, try bypassing start solenoid by tapping positive cable to battery post on starter. Starter should turn. If starter doesn't turn, have starter tested.

Batt dead jump start does not seem to charge


Sounds like a dead or shorted cell battery. Charging system is probably working but is showing overcharge since it is trying to charge a brick. Replace the battery and all should be well.
