Yth1746 Husqvarna Mower Will Not Start

I have a Husqvarna yth1746 that I bought second hand. It will not start nor turn over. I have replaced the battery, coil, positive cable, and ignition switch. The fuse is good and the wires ohm out fine. I jumped the starter and fuel shutoff solenoid and the mower starts. However it doesn't even click over when I turn the key. I'd really like to get a step by step on what to check. I've been told that it could be the switch for the clutch, seat, or the neutral position switch. Any help I can get would be appreciated.

You might have dry bearings in the starter motor, or electrical wiring errors. Check out this super helpful forum. There are many steps you can take:

There are two reasons a mower won't start.

  1. The mower has bad gas in it.
  2. You have a problem with the safety switch. You need to test the safety switch to make sure it has continuity. You will do this with a volt meter.
  3. You can order a new safety switch for your mower here: www.repairclinic.com/.../Husqvarna-Lawn-mower-won-t-start...

I had the same problem and it turned out to be a faulty solenoid. You can jump past the solenoid to start it but if you want it to start on its own you may need a new solenoid. Best of luck.
