I've got nothing. No lights or click. Battery showing charge.

I've got nothing. No click no lights. It's a brand new craftsman rider 42 inch cut. I've used it 4 times.

Is this a good question?

We are all assuming you have used a ride-on mower before the 4 times with this one. Back to basics first ... Are you in the sitting on the seat with foot on brake, throttle up, and then turning key? It is amazing how it can be the simplest things we forget to do sometimes. I hope it doesn't get as complicated as the next step of good suggestions from L Pfaff above.


I'm assuming you have used this mower before, so I'm going right to the answer because it happened to me a few weeks ago. I had a blown fuse. It turned out to be a $2 fix.

@confused08, Paul, Check battery with DVOM should read 12.4 v or better, if not charge battery and try.

If battery found to be good and with the tractor being new and under warranty, probably best to have repaired under warranty. Probable wiring harness/plug/ignition switch/safety switch fault. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
