Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor - 54in. Deck, 26 HP, Model# LGT2654
Check your battery cables for signs of broken strands of wire at the terminals. Often the vibration of just normal use causes the wires to break at the terminal connections. This is to include the solenoid terminals and the lead from the solenoid to the inside of the starter.
If the terminals and wires are fine the next suspect is the solenoid. Use a healthy screwdrver and short across the solenoid to see if the starter engages. If it tries to start but will not move the starter then the most likely suspect is the brushes in the starter. If it motors the starter normally after you short across the terminals of the solenoid then suspect the solenoid itself. The internal copper terminal is excessively worn that the copper wafer strikes when the solenoid is energized.
If none of the above recommendations correct the problem try a set of jumper cables on the battery and see if you get a normal start. The battery can have 12VDC but have coated battery plating so that it can not deliver the amperage needed for a normal start.
After all of this if you still have the problem just respond here and I will do my best to help you. I will tell you that any steps after this will involve wiring.
