View Full Version : Toro Groundsmaster 345 no spark

I have a Toro groundsmaster 345, that will not start. I pulled a plug out and I am not getting any spark. I swapped the coil into my escort and it started fine, the escort that is, so the coil is good.

What I am looking for is where to start?
What are common issues?
Safety switches?
Crank trigger?
Engine control module?

My local toro dealer wont touch it, they tell me I need to take it to the Toro Golf Course Management sales company located 60 miles away in Lansing Mi.
I am near Ann Arbor Mi, and if anyone would know of a reputable dealer that might be able to diagnose this, the mower has a 45hp Ford industrial engine, So I was thinking that a Ford/Newholland dealership might be the next best place to have it serviced.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks..

No doubt it has electronic ignition. But you need to post the engine numbers for anyone to help you very well.
