Question about Garden
A sulphated battery and batteries with a bad cell behave like a dead battery but when put on charge will "recharge" quickly, giving an entirely false impression the battery is ok.
Guessing is unreliable and there is no substitute for testing and while there are available very expensive battery testers that give reasonably accurate results the old fashioned method of testing is best - charging, allow to stand for a few hours and then check the cell condition with a hydrometer, checking the terminal voltage and finally using a heavy discharge tester.
It is possible of course, the battery is ok and there is a problem with your ride-on but only proper testing or substituting a good battery will reveal...

TAKE A PIECE OF HEAVEY WIRE AND RUN IT FROM THE POSITIVE POST ON THE BATTERY AND TOUCH IT TO THE STARTER POST SEE IF THE STARTER WORKS. IF IT DOES CHECK ALL THE SAFETY SWITCHES ON THE SEAT, DECK , BREAK ECT SEE IF THIS HELPS

Testimonial: "Thank you i now know what the faulty part is, excellent tip."
Check your seat switch and brake switch for loose wires.Most likely brake switch do to no spark at plugs,see if PTO switch/lever isnt on.
