Customer Question

LA145 will not start. No clicking noise. Headlights come on (bright). When key turned to start position no sound at all. Battery - When I attached 15A charger, battery was 70% charged. Left charger attached until indicator showed 90% charged. Checked 20A fuse - OK. Replaced solenoid - Still would not start. No clicking, no noise at all. Any ideas to try next?

Do you hear the fuel solenoid click in the carburetor if you flip ky on and off? If no click from the fuel solenoid, you have no voltage to the key switch. If you do hear the fuel solenoid click, then you have a safety switch, either seat or brake ,th tis not completing the start circuit.
