Mower sat over the winter. Turn key and nothing

Mower sat over the winter. Turn key and nothing happens. I put a new battery on and it made the faintest click 2 times and now will not make a noise. How do I know if it is the starter or the solenoid? Which of these would you replace first?

Neither ... charge the battery first. New doesnt necessarily mean fully charged.

Charge it with a properly sized charger for 24 hours then check with a volt ohm meter.

Why Craftsman riding mower wont turn over & only makes click sound when turn key on??


1.try jumping the battery with your car battery. I have had same issue in the past with a brand new battery.
2. Try spraying starter fluid into the carb while cranking. If it starts or at least tries to start (assuming cranking is fixed), you have a fuel problem. Again, when I first tried to fire my Used mower, had to use starter fluid to get it to start the first time, but never since.

Cub Cadet ZTR will not start


Is the blade engagement off? If that is ok, does the solenoid even click when you put the key to start position? If the solenoid doesn't even click check the battery connections and make sure they are good and clean. If the connections are good, are you sure the new battery is fully charged. If the battery sat around for a long time in the store it could need charged. If all that is good and then you don't get the starter solenoid to click when you put the key in start position, then it is either the seat switch, parking brake switch, handle switches, or mower engage switch keeping it from starting. If all that is ok maybe you have a bad starter solenoid. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

When you say it does nothing....no lights work at all...or you just can't crank starter?
Are you sure new battery is charged and the Main fuse is okay..should be close to battery.
No chance of rodent damage to wiring while sitting?

Check your seat, drive safety switches. Can you turn the engine with jumper cables attached to the starter? It won't start, but should turn over, one of your safety switches is not working.

I've discovered that if you leave key on battery will be drained to dead. Checking battery with meter shows +12v. When key is turned to start position nothing happens. When you connect meter to battery terminals and put key to start position the meter reads about .250 VDC. Even after taking battery to Advance Auto and have it checked it still does same thing. Eventually I jumped my mower with another battery that was being used in my scooter. Bingo! all worked well with jump. You would probably be able to jump with car battery with no problem.

Hi please check all the wiring connections as you must have disconected the power soarce feeding the key switch to the starter.
Start around the engine then the battery, check the seat switch , brake/ clutch pedal , & the mower deck switches .
One wire is just disconnected or the connection is broken so check all connections by unconecting & reconnecting them as it may even be a corroded wire that has been disturbed when being cleaned.
