Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 2355 that they could share? I'm trying to trace the wire that starts at the ignition (key) switch and ends up at the starter solenoid that supplies 12 volts to activate the solenoid and crank the starter. The wire goes into a wrapped harness and isn't visible to trace. I don't know if it goes from the switch directly to the solenoid or if it goes through a relay or something else. I don't seem to be getting a full 12 volts through the wire when the key is turned. There is an audible "click" and then 2 to 5 seconds later (while still holding the key in the start position) the starter will kick in and start the tractor. The solenoid and starter are both new. I'm thinking the wire may be corroded inside and not able to give a full 12 volts. If the wire goes directly from the switch down to the solenoid, I'll just throw a new one on and cut the old one without putting it into the harness.
Any suggestions, diagrams, or thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

The wire does not go directly from the switch to the starter. From the switch, it goes to the neutral safety relay. If the gearshift is in neutral, the neutral relay is activated and then the power goes to the starter relay, and from there it goes to the starter solenoid. The parking brake is tied into it also so the brake alarm sounds if tractor is put into gear while brake is on. That is a general wiring of it, but there were some differences depending on serial number, with or without cab, etc...

Neutral start switch is located on the top of trans gearshift housing. It's possible starting wire is loosing amperage as you stated. I'd check this( RE164448 STARTER RELAY) to be sure it's operating properly and has a good ground. IIRC it's located under the hood.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Turned out to be the starter relay. Someone else did the repair for me because I had shoulder surgery on Monday and am totally out of the mix for the next 6 weeks plus therapy. I'm thankful for the forum as it will give me some reading material.
