Walker won't start

I have had this similar problem before, It is usually a relay or safety switch, but here is what I do first to get by until it is fixed. I ran a wire from the battery to the 12V terminal (spade plug) on the starter. I put a push button in the line, so I can start it that way. If it turns over using this method then you have a relay or safety switch problem. I had so much trouble with one mower that I put a toggle switch in the instrument panel and ran a wire from it to the starter. To start click the key then hold the toggle switch until it starts.

The last time I had the problem it was on an MT model and the relay near the blower went bad. The is an easy fix. I would try that first. Look in the back of the illustrated parts book to see the electrical diagram to trace wiring
