Have you checked the inline fuse?. Also you could unplug the ignition switch and clean the terminals, particuarly the one with red wire in it. That the one that has constant power to it and tends to corrode over time. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: mower won't start
im sure the switch is bad, trying to jump is a good way to find out if the starter is bad but of course wont start cause of no spark, alot of these have electronic magnetos

Go to... http://www.buymtdonline.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/FindingYourPart_10101_19502_-1 Scroll down to bottom left and click on Owner Manuals. You will have to have the model and serial numbers from under the seat of your mower.

yes they have a charging system, not like a car but a charging system one the less. as i said before either under or around the flywheel. some newer mowers also have an electronic regulator.

You will find the diagram on the left side of the deck as you sit on tractor by left foot. It will be located under the foot pedal that has the routing diagram specifically for your Troy-Bilt mower model. Note that owner's manuals may not have the most current schematic.
