If the mulit-meter shows 12V, the starter should click (Solenoid turning to start side). If it won't turn over and the battery is good, then check your cables. They may look caroded. If so, take them off and brush both inside and post.with a wire brush. Generally on the positive post. What good would an inline fuse do, if there is not any power coming from the battery. That fuse is just a link that blows for safety reasons unless the fuse is already blown for some reason, and if so just replace it. Another thing to do is to bounce on the safety seat switch. Sometimes after a mower will set over the winter or so, then that switch sorta gets lazy.
Good luck
