Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Thanks Curtis...I think a fuse has also blown as when I replace the two of them the digital display does actually appear when I turn the key...but there is no accompanying beep as there normally is and the engine doesn't even make an attempt to start. Also I can see from the display that the battery voltage level is 0.0V.
Can batteries drain as quickly as that?
I think I will just replace the battery as it has been giving difficulties for some time now...e.g. blades not engaging correctly, very rarely starting first time after I have turned it off for a short period of time etc.
