Hi, let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

Fuses ok? If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and jump cable terminal to the single switch terminal, will the engine spin? do you have a voltmeter to test with?

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 4 years ago

Start with the fuses, then do the jump at the solenoid.

Thanks! I checked the fuses, tested the battery, and starter. John Deere has three different starters for this model and I had a refurbished starter that was not the correct starter. Thanks again
