HeavyEquipmentTech :

Hi my name is Dan. I will try to help. Check all your safety switches, fuses, and test for power to your starter solenoid small "S" terminal with someone holding the ignition switch in the cranking position. If there is power there and the starter motor will not crank with good batteries and connections, than your starter is faulty. If there is no power there then check your harness and switches back ytou your ignition switch. Test you batteries for a full charge and internal condition with a digital battery tester. Clean/tighten all connections from your battery to your starter, alternator, etc. including all grounds. I hope this helps. Let me know the results and if you need further help with this

JACUSTOMER-weizhbz5- :

HeavyEquipmentTech :

Ok thanks for the update. Im on my way out for a family gathering but if you could post your serial number and a more detailed summary about the chain of events here an the symptoms would be helpful in helping you diagnose this further and knowing what you already checked that way I can be sure you get the correct information for your machine
