Re: 1994 Simplicity Broadmoor Won't Crank
My guess is the battery is junk first and foremost.... If you jumped it and it cranked that has to be the reason. If you jump it and it is still weak, check your battery connections/ground.
I usually work backwards from the starter. Jump the starter see if it turns, good, then jump the solenoid, good then see if im getting 12v from the ignition switch to the solenoid. I have a similar tractor and the wiring on those is a little complicated but make sure the safety switches are working.
To rule out a safety switch I will just ground the terminal from the solenoid to the frame real quick and turn the key, if it cranks, something is not right with the switches or switch wiring.
