Question about Craftsman Garden
I have a Craftsman Lawn Tractor, Model # 917.255919, 18 HP, 44" cut, possibly made in 1991.(?) Will not Start. New ignition switch and new solenoid, yet no click in solenoid. Battery is fine at 12.5 DC Volts. Will start when jumped between solenoid/starter terminal and Battery Positive Post, bypassing Ignition starter switch at Starter Solenoid.
Any help would be most appretiated.
Thanks in Advance,

Check the by pass switches on the seat, clutch pedal, and check the fuses.

Below is excerpt from the owners manual:
SERVICE REMINDER/HOUR METER
Service reminder shows the total number
of hours the engine has run and flashes to
indicate that the engine or mower needs
servicing. When service is required, the
service reminder will flash for two hours.
To service engine and mower, see the
Maintenance section of this manual.
NOTE: Service reminder runs when the ignition
key is in any position but "STOP". For
accurate reading, be sure key remains in the
"STOP" position when engine is not running.
It should reset the 2 hours has expired
