It's 8:31 pm. I just found your note. I need a trouble shooting guide with detailed instruction for electrical problem in starting my cub cadet (2017) Enduro xt1 series riding lawn mower.
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 1 year ago

It really depends on what the machine is doing when you try and start it, does it have spark at the spark plug? Electrical issues can be caused by many things as there are many electrical safety switches that can cause a machine not to start. First thing to do it check to make sure the spark plug(s) have spark. If not, you will need to test the safety switches for continuity

I need you to guide me through the trouble shooting process. At first I changed the plugs and air filter. Got plenty of gas feeding the carb. The starter turned intermittently but no start. Checked the fuse. charged the battery. Now it won't even click the solenoid. Now what do I do to troubleshoot this problem?I am already a member in good standing with monthly fees already paid. now I need to get my money's worth.Get me logged in without having to do this all over again..
I've done it dozens of times already.

If battery is good, but solenoid is not clicking, jump the solenoid and see if the engine will start or turn over. Make sure brake is locked and key is in the ON position when you jump the solenoid
