    D125 clicks when turning on

    When turning on the d125 it just clicks. I replaced the solenoid and still clicks. I jumped it with my car and turns right on so I replaced the battery and it still clicks. Today I checked all connections and grounds and they all seem good. I jumped it again and no problem it started right up. It’s only a year and a half old. Any help with this issue it would be appreciated!!!

    I'd pull the connectors on the battery and clean them (and the battery posts) with a wire brush as a first step.

    Pull both of the spark plugs and see if the engine turns over freely with the starter. If so, you may have an issue with the compression release which can either be that the valve clearance needs to be set or worse case you have a problem with the compression release mechanism on the cam.

    This issue is most prevalent on the single cylinder Briggs & Stratton engines but it happens sometimes with the 2-cylinder engines as well.

    Why would that sort of issue prevent a machine from starting on it's own battery but start every time when jumped from another vehicle?

    I thought it may be a bad ground so I put the jumper cable from the battery to a ground and it started right up

    Disconnect the battery and then pull the battery cable off of the starter. Clean the contacts/cable ends and posts on the starter and solenoid then try again.

    Also, your test only proves that the ground side of the circuit is good. Charge the battery overnight, clean all connections, and try again. I'm saying this because if you jump the battery and the machine starts as advertised, then there is a problem at the battery end, and may just be the battery, new or not.
