Customer Question

Hi - I recently bought a used Craftsman lawn mower and it never even finished mowing my yard for the first time. It will not hold a charge or build up a charge, but I was able to jump it and get it running. Now it just quit in the middle of the yard. There is a little steel cable with what looks like a dot on the top that is loose, but I did not remember seeing it loose previously. Can you help me? I know now that I should have bought a new one!
