Customer Question

I have an LX176 with a Kawaski engine 14 hp. When I turn the key the only thing I hear is the fuel pump solenoid click no starter movement. I have put another ignition module on and a coil and neither of those solved the problem. I have tested the starter and that kicks in and out with the battery jumper. I don't know where to go from here.

Take a long screwdriverand cross the post and it should turn the starter over. Make sure to have the key to on. If this starts it and keeps it running then the solenoid is bad
