Underneath the starter switch console there are 2 connectors

1-- fuse holder -- not sure of the amp of fuse , make sure it is not blown.
2-- there is a 4 pin connector that houses a relay , make sure that the connectors are not dis-coloured , if they are - the relay is bad
replace it

there is a small red or orange relay on the bottom near a side panel , the connector that is attached to it , should have 2 white wires connected to it .
dis-connect the connector and bridge the 2 crimp connectors
you should now be able to crank the engine over

i have done the same thing to mine , crank but no start issue, have to check for spark at the spark plugs tomorrow .

other wise it is a ignition control module failure

My poulan pro lawn tractor won't start. when i turn the key it click's 1 time can you help ?


Have you checked the battery terminal connections? Is the battery charged fully? Are you sitting on the seat when you try to crank the mower? Could be any of the above but most likely battery connection or the battery is discharged or old.

My Yard Riding Lawn Mower won't start when I turn the key on it just clicks


Click means solenoid has enough battery power but maybe not enough battery power for the armature of the starter to spin, it may be low battery or bad solenoid contact - inside it, (copper washer and pin), or thirdly it may be the engine is stuck so try to turn it a bit by hand to rule this out. Turning the engine a bit by hand may also free a starter gear that has jammed on the flywheel teeth.

My yard machine tractor does nothing when I turn the key. The battery is new. However the tractor is 12 years old. Could this be the alternator?


If it does nothing when you turn the key then replacing an alternator will not help. Numerous things could be causing this condition. I will try to cover a few. Make sure your PTO for the blades is disengaged and the clutch pedal is depressed. Make sure your battery voltage and all connections are good. Also make sure it is hooked up correctly. There is a fuse, usually near the solenoid, you need to check that. If all the above is good check to see if you have voltage going to the solenoid: There is a small wire that hooks to a spade terminal, you need to have 12 volts on this wire when the key is in the start position. If you do not, then you need to troubleshoot your safety switched. If you have 12 volts, then you may have a bad solenoid. Good luck, hope this gets you in the right direction.

Tractor wont start unless I jump it


How old is the battery? When you get it started put a digital volt meter across the battery terminals and with the throttle about 1/2 open check the voltage. If should be over 13 volts DC if your charging system is working ok. If it is over 13 volts your battery has probably just given up. Lawn mower batteries are only good for 2-3 years. A trickle charger can extend the life if used.

I hope this helps.

I have a craftsman electric key start lawn mower. I used the key start twice and have charged it after each mowing, but now the key start won't turn it over.


the battery probably got over charge & shorted the cells the tractor should charge the battery as it runs if it was equiped with electric start the battery charger more than likely over charged it killing the battery
