    Did you check where the cables connect into the battery terminal clamps? Grab that terminal clamp and pull it hard. You might find it comes off or at least moves. Both the terminal clamp and frame connection can be perfect but overall the circuit may be weak due to the cable-to-terminal join.

    Neutral Safety Switch and Connection?

    Be sure to check the Neutral Safety Switch connection and the switch itself. Mine came loose at one point (working clearing some brush) and I couldn't figure out why it wouldn't crank.

    Faulty ignition switch

    I had a similar problem on my 2017 1025R. Sometimes would start, other time would not crank even though all lights came on as if everything functioning normal. Turned out to be a defective ignition switch. Replaced by dealer under warranty, no problems since

    i bet the problem could have very well been that sketchy ground wire connection, a bad ground can be a very pesky, intermittent problem. Hope you're all fixed!

    2305 hard starting

    I had a problem with my 2305 hard starting also. I fixed the problem by replacing the battery cables. I used #2 copper wire automotive cables. Extended the ground cable to a bolt on the starter. Have not had a problem with hard starting since even in cold weather. Be sure to leave the jumper where the orignal ground connected.

    You need to remove the ground cable from the frame or engine and clean the area real good. This should fix your start problem.

    2nd update - well it was not cleaning the negative battery to frame connection. Same problem. Now I have replaced the ignition switch. Very easy to do this. The ignition switch mates up and presses into the wiring harness connector. Only will fit one way. JD factory used a plastic pull tie over the assembly to squeeze together. Poor approach. I removed it and used a band clamp/water hose type clamp to reasonably tighten the ignition switch to the harness connector. Put it all back together. Time will tell. If I cut grass for an hour that is the real test. I will be back with it’s fixed or not yet.
