Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor
I can help you. Lets start with the red cable at the battery. But first look under the seat for a switch. See if it is in the right place and has not fallen down. This is a safety switch, some one must be sitting in the seat for it to start or the blades to switch on. So back to the battery and cables, follow the red or positive cable away from the battery, you will find the starter relay. This relay has two large post (cables) One just came from the battery, the other side goes to the starter. Follow it to find the starter. The relay will also have two smaller terminals, One will of these wires will come from the key switch start the engine. The best way to check this relay is to jump from the hot side of the cable (post) to the small terminal that hooks to the start switch. You can use a small screw driver to make the jump. Try this and you will get an Idea as to what is what..

First things first, I am sure it is not the battery, you need to make sure the blades are not engaged if they then the mower will not start, most mowers have three safety switches, first brake engaged, second PTO/blades disengaged, third sitting on seat, if all this is done and it will not crank/click then you will need to follow the battery wire down towards the engine looking for a fuse. I hope this helps Tim
