Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. my name is***** will be happy to assist you. It is very likely that you have a blown fuse.
Your fuse is located under your battery.
You will need to remove your battery, and your battery tray, in order to gain easy access to your fuse.
Thank you for this information. Are you saying that nothing happens when you turn your key to start your engine?
Do you have a 12 volt test light, or a multimeter?
We need to check to see if you are getting voltage to your ignition switch.
Check the connector on your brake safety switch. Let's make sure you are getting a good connection in this location. We can continue from here. Thanks!
Have you got a tester yet? We can do some troubleshooting.
Thank you for checking. Look for an orange wire in the wiring connector that attaches to your ignition switch. Your start circuit travels through your orange wire. Turn your ignition switch to start position, and check your orange wire to see if you get 12 volts. Check as close to your wiring connector as possible. You may have you pierce your orange wire, in order to test it.
Are you saying that your orange wire have 11.85 volts?
Are you saying yes, to your orange wire?
Thanks for clarifying this. This tells me that your ignition switch is okay.
The start circuit in your orange wire, goes in and out of your Brake Safety Switch, then in and out of your PTO Safety Switch, then to your Solenoid.
Next, locate your brake safety switch. Check for voltage on your orange wires, at the wiring connector for your brake switch, when your ignition switch is in start position. Make sure your parking brake is on. You should have voltage on both sides of your connector.
