JD 5065E Turn key and nothing-hear no clicking or any

Customer Question

JD 5065E Turn key and nothing-hear no clicking or any noise-do get three red intrument emblems on the main display. Tested battery and it's strong-cleaned poles etc-nothing.
Told it might be 1] neutral switch on transmission and I would not hear any noise if that's it, 2] seat switch 3] pto switch or 4] key switch, even though I get panel lighted emblems.
One guy said it was a bad starter and solenoid and that I wouldn't hear any fast clicking, but another JD person said if it was the starter I'd hear fast clicking.
Any thoughts.

Did anyone mention the starter relay? It has to close before the solenoid is activated?
