    Do you have a multimeter to check the actual battery voltage? Do you have a battery charger with the capability to run a starter? I suspect it is the battery.

    My neighbor had a similar issue with their Cub Cadet. They called me down to take a look at it. It was dead, no clicking no hour display. They had their car nearby so we tried to jump start it. Still nothing. So I went home and got my big 200 amp battery charger and hooked it up. The tractor fired right up off the charger. They let the tractor run to charge up the battery. Apparently it was stone dead. I'm still not sure why jumping it didn't work.

    Batteries can sometimes go bad with no warning. My old JD 175 had a battery that was 9 years old. It started every day fine and then one day - nothing. No warning at all. A new battery and I was back in business.

    Have you checked the battery? What's the voltage? It should be about 12.5 at rest. Anything less than 12.0 is really discharged or dead. Remove and clean both connections. How old is the battery? Anything over 4 years is lucky.

    BTW, I made this its own thread for more views and responses.

    Diesel thanks for separating this thread and for the response. I did clean the battery terminals, did not help. I do not have the ability to check the charge on the battery. The battery is three years old so it could be dead. I was thinking that even a bad battery would have enough juice to show something in the display... but maybe I am wrong there. Guess I should bite the bullet and buy a ne battery.

    You're welcome.

    It's not uncommon for a battery to just "up and die" all of a sudden. The battery is a consumable and with three years, I think you got your money's worth. Change the battery with a new one and let us know how it goes.
