I have a LA105 5 years old. Had trouble starting this spring.

Customer Question
killed battery trying to start...
I have a LA105 5 years old. Had trouble starting this spring. killed battery trying to start first time but then started and ran fine with jumper once but will not start again. Needs new battery but is that all since jumper will not work now? Already changed spark plug & fuel filter. Gas might have been stale which led to initial issue but not sure what is problem now.
Jumper gets engine to turn over but no ignition. Choke is on. No corrosion on battery cable.

Check the ignition fuse, located behind the engine, near the starter solenoid. If the 20 amp fuse is blown, get a new battery and fuse!
