Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
I have a craftsman 15.5 HP 42" deck lawn tractor and my problem is
it is not trying to start at all. It did try to fire over before it did absolutely
nothing not even a click. I installed a solenoid & starter and I am still
getting nothing. I also tried to jump start this mower with my pickup
truck for 30 mins. I had the seat up but,you should be able to start
this mower as long as the clutch is depressed all the way in and you
have it locked into place which I always do.It acts like it's not getting
any fire to the starter at all. I'm not sure if it might be the kill switch
under the seat or the wiring harness is totally bad but I need a solution
to the problem. The model & serial numbers are listed below for reference.
It sounds like no electricity is making it to the starter. Several things may be wrong. Check to see if the fuse has blown. It should be behind the dash. Your starter switch may be bad. You can unhook it and use a jump wire from the positive side of the battery to the wire connection on the starter to see if it will turn over. The switch under the seat that detects someones sitting on the mower could be bad. You can unhook it and place a piece of wire in the connections to make a complete circuit then try to start it.
