    also, this thing gets fire hot after turing the key 10 or 20 times.

    Hey check all of the safety switches.. 1 for the seat, the 2 for the sticks.. take a test light and make sure your're getting 12v through the switches...

    I checked my ground connections, positive connections that i could see near the solenoid and starter, wiggled wires, with no luck.

    when i have everything how it supposed to be you see the markings on the readout. Im not sure if the older mowers have this or not. When im not on the seat the seat symbol is missing, levers same thing.

    Ok... You got the newer style like me.. So all of the safety switches are good.. That's why they put those there to eliminating all the guess work out of the switches... Did you check the plug to your key switch? If it cranks when you jump the solenoid, it's either the key switch or another solenoid...

    I haven't checked behind the key switch. I can try to figure out how to get behind it.

    There should be a couple of bolts on top of the dashboard. Take them off and lift it up enough to check the wires.. If it starts when you jump across the solenoid like i said it has to be either the key switch itself, a solenoid or a broken wire between the key switch and solenoid... Get yourself a test light and start tracking the wires between the key switch and solenoid....
