Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Are you saying that when you turn your key, to start your engine, nothing happens? Not even a click?
Thanks for your response. Check to make sure your bypass/roll rod is still attached to the bypass lever on your transmission.
This is an indication that your brakes are locked, although your brake pedal is fully releasing.
This should not prevent your engine from starting.
Are you familiar with using a screwdriver to jump across your solenoid posts?
Yes, at starter.
Do you have a shift lever, or a pedal to use to drive your mower?
As long as your shift lever is in neutral position, your mower should still start, even if your mower will not roll.
Have you checked to see if your battery is fully charged?
Can you try using a screwdriver to jump across your solenoid post, to see if your engine will spin?
Thanks! We can continue from here.
