-My battery was dead so I had to jump start my tractor. I connected the negative cables to my car and tractor batteries. When I connected the positive cable to my car battery there was a spark at the tractor. Unfortunately, when I connected the positive cable to my car i failed to noticed the other end of the cable was resting on the metal shelf that the battery sits on. I reconnected all cables and successfully got the tractor started. However, now the blades do not engage when I turn on the switch. Speeds 1-6 and reverse work, the only thing not working is blades don’t engage. Any ideas? Thanks in advance :-)
