Tractor won't start, battery is good. Just bought a new

Customer Question

Tractor won't start, battery is good. Just bought a new solenoid. When accidently touching the solenoid posts with a wrench, the motor turns over
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: but with the key, motor still won't turn over
JA: Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: I bought a new ignition switch and that doesn't do anything either
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and connect you two.
