    Hey guys,

    I have a 48" scag freedom z rider with a 26hp briggs engine. We have one single click noise when turning the ignition key...anyone have any suggestions...here are some more details...

    replaced solenoid
    replaced battery
    replaced voltage regulator
    replaced stator
    checked all safety switches
    mower used to start by jumping it but now will not start at all

    any help would be great, we have been dealing with this for months and now cant jump start it anymore so we might have to rent a mower for the weekend, any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Check for blown fuse then power to the ignition switch "B" post, Then the switch post "S" when key is turned to start position.
