I am trying to help my neighbor get his 2006 bolens lawn tractor running. It will not crank at all. The story is he was cutting grass and turned if off to get some lunch, when he went back to start it nothing happened.

I checked for voltage at the started when turning the key and got nothing. I want to check voltage / ground around the solenoid but cannot seem to spot it for the life of me. Tracing the cable from the starter it appears the harness runs under the frame on the left side. Is it hidden in the frame somewhere? Can I access it without removing the deck?? It was dark when I was trying to help him tonight so maybe it was obvious and I just missed it...

Thanks!!

2 places the solonoid is in cheaper models. under the gas tank right near the steering gear or in the battery compartment.. MTD turned Bolens into a green MTD after they bought them out.
