exmark cranking issues
I am new to the site and happy to be here. I have been trying to solve a problem with my Exmark Quest QTE615KA421 related to starting the engine. I have researched posts on this site and others, but have not seen a similar issue:
Starter does not seem to engage the engine when using key in ignition.
Starter DOES engage and start engine when I jump the posts on the solenoid with a wire.
When mower is hot, I can crank with ignition key.
What I have done:
Checked and charged battery. All is good.
Replaced Ignition Switch (oem).
Replace clutch switch (oem).
Checked and main wires for good connection.
None of these actions changed the situation.
Anyone have experience with problem?
