My inherited John Deere L120 with the 20hp Briggs engine. In the past year, it's always been a pain in the rear to get it started. Wasn't maintained real well previously. Started up fine last week, but when I went to mow yesterday I got nothing. A couple of clicks and lights coming on were all I got. I was able to jump it and get her moving, but couldn't start on her own. From what I've seen ppl say it could be the solenoid or maybe it's shorting somewhere. I'm brand new to trying to fix this stuff, would an amateur be able to install a new solenoid without blowing the damn thing up? Anything else I can do to try and diagnose?
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
