    I have a Feris lS1500Z with the 21 hp kawi. motor and i just replaced the starter, battery, starter silnoid, and the ing switch. When i jump across the siolnoid the starter will spin. But when i turn the ket it dose nothing. the steering arms are in the start position and the parking brake is on and i am sitting in the seat. Anyone have any suggestions on what else to do or replace? Thanks

    Get the wiring diagram and a meter...try troubleshooting before blindly replacing parts.

    To add on pugs post, I'd start with testing the parking brake switch....

    Check your fuses and test the solenoid. ANd remember just because it clicks does not mean it is working. With a meter ot test light see if it is putting out.
