Deere 455 quit while mowing. Tractor is electrically dead,

Customer Question

John Deere 455 quit while mowing. Tractor is electrically dead, turning the key does nothing - no fuel pump, fuel-shutoff solenoid, no sound at all. Battery and connections check out. TM shows a "fusible link" but I can't locate it on the tractor.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: I think it was a week yesterday when it died.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If possible, it's a bear to move without power.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I pulled and reinstalled all the fuses I can see, all appeared to be good.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Fusible links show to be on the positive side of the starter solenoid, wires going to keyswitch and such. See diagram.

Did you find problem?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No, after spending Saturday and Sunday going through the diagnostic procedures in the TCM, I gave up and took it to the dealer this morning.
