I can relate to your frustrations Mike, Sometimes electrical problems can be a bear to sort out......


You said you lost the click when you raised the seat, Un-plug the seat safety switch and put a short jumper wire across the connectors inside the plug. Make sure the parking brake is applied and both joysticks are out in neutral position.

Now try to start it, Does it ? Did you re-gain the click ?

You said you cleaned the ignition switch, Was there any rust/corrosion on the "B" post ?

Mike,

I wouldn't just replace all the relays, Is it the new relay that clicks when you turn the key to start ? If so does the old one you took out ?

Just swap the relays around with each other, In other words take each of the others and plug them one at a time into the socket for the start circuit and see if they click as well. If you run across one that doesn't click replace it with one that does, You have the new extra one now to do this.

Sure there is Mike, TORO.


Toro's part # is 111216

Aftermarket;

Rotary part #1931 or #8601 depending on the size hole in your instrument panel.

Sten's part #430-249 or #430-512 again depending on hole size.

Take your old switch with you to match up the letters on the post since they are lost at finding you one.....

You turn the key and absolutely nothing happens? No crank no nothing? To start with you can forget about the voltage regulator. That won't keep it from cranking. Not saying you didn't fry it but something else is causing it not to crank. Are you getting any power to the ignition switch? If so are you getting any power out of the ignition switch to the starter solenoid? Fried ignition modules could be a possibility but it still should crank. My guess is you fried the diode in the start circuit. If that's the case you should have power coming out of the start terminal of the ignition switch but will have no power at the starter solenoid.
