    Battery has a full charge, fuses are new, wires are excellent, just won't start. Any ideas on what else to check? The handle buttons are new in the lock position but it will not even roll over. No power.

    If it won't even turn over it sounds like a safety switch. Look at the parking brake, make sure the pto switch is in the off position,and look at the safety switch under the seat.

    Dead battery, safety switch you THINK is GOOD, another fuse you have not found yet, bad starter relay, bad starter switch, loose wire somewhere?
    I hate electrical problems.

    I'm sending it to the shop. I'll end up taking it apart and then I'll just do more damage.

    Usually when NOTHING happens, it is most likely a safety switch. Under seat,PTO is ON, parking break/neautral switch. If youre lucky it will be a switch.

    if you checked your safety switches and fuses and they appear okay, jump the starter solonoid terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts, check the ignition switch.
    I had the same problem with a Hustler Z. The ignition switch was bad.
