Hello, I have a 38" lawn tractor model LT133. I was cutting my grass and shut it down to empty the grass catcher bags. Upon trying to re-start to continue cutting, the mower did nothing. I checked the battery thinking it may have died but it is putting out +/- 13.0 volts. I could here an occasional click coming from the starter solenoid so thinking this was the culprit I replaced it with a new OEM solenoid. Still nothing. I am at a loss here. I checked the brake pedal switch, only to the point that it was firmly plugged in, also the same with the blade engagement switch.
I used my jumper cables attached to my truck. The other end I attached to the NEG on the mower battery. I touched the POS cable to the POS on the starter with the key on and the mower fired right up. Runs great. shuts off with the key. All systems function as they should.
Any and all help with this no crank issue is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Bill
