    I have a toro 42 “ zero turn. I do facility maintenance. The other day I was cutting and it shut off. Just like you turned the key off. It will not do anything, won’t turn over. I’ve checked the fuses under the seat, not blown. I checked the battery and connections. All good. Need help. Thanks in advance

    I’ve traced some. Plugs fouled out would not stop it from turning over.

    So, it wont spin over at all?

    It really would help you to invest in a test light and volt meter. It takes a lot of the guess work out of troubleshooting
