Question about John Deere Garden
Hi, this sounds like a wiring or starter solenoid issue. Do you have the 4-terminal solenoid? If yes, is there a wire from one of the smaller terminals to the ignition coil positive terminal? If yes, try moving that wire from the small solenoid terminal to the large terminal that connects to the starter. This will ensure that 12 volts goes to the coil when the key is turned to start. If this works, you may want to get a new solenoid.
If you don't have the wire I'm talking about, you probably have a problem with the wire from the ignition switch to the coil. You can still add the wire I have suggested from the starter terminal of the solenoid to the coil, and this will power the coil.
Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

Do you know if you have electronic ignition? On some types, the voltage vailable during cranking is too low to fire off the ignition, then you release the key and there is enough....to test for this issue, jump the unit from another vehicle.
Motorcycles with electronic ignition have this issue and must have perfect battery state of charge to actually allow enough current to operate the electionics...
