Customer Question

have a gravely zt xl 42" zero turn. Turn key and it won't even try to start. Had battery tested and it's ok. I'm sitting on seat and have turn bars in neutral. Not sure what else to check. I checked fuse and it looks ok.

Have power and fuse is good.

Go back and test the seat switch and the arm switches and the harness to them. . Set meter on ohms and test the continuity.
