    I have a 2005 JD 757 z-trak mower (60 in. deck 25 kawasaki). I was mowing my lawn yesterday and I stopped for a couple of minutes and then tried to restart mower. The mower would not attempt to turn over. The swith under the control pannel would make a clicking sound but that was it. I do not believe it is the starter be cause I have had no problems in the past and it will not even try to start. I had my dad come over with his 757 and I swapped out batteries but that was not the problem. I checked the fuse and it is not blown. I anticipate a safety switch has failed or the ignition is bad. I have never had a problem of any sort with this mower before. I would love to be-able to fix the problem my self but I do not know where to begin. My question is this 1) has anyone experienced this before 2)if so what cost should I be prepaired to pay 3) is this something I could fix myself? Any help would be appreciated thanks

    My Toro does that when the battery terminals have become loose.

    Not only loose, but make sure they are clean and shiny
