    I am sorry you are having with the tractor. If the solenoid will make a noise when you turn the key the wiring to activate the solenoid seems to be working. I would try to turn the flywheel by hand first. This will tell you if the engine is locked up or not. If the flywheel will turn, I recommend checking all the battery cable connections. If they were fine, I would try to jump-start the tractor. The instructions for jumping the tractor should be posted in the owner's manual. If will not start by jump starting the problem is likely a defective starter.

    Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you Mark
