My Craftsman garden tractor 917.272960 died when running fine up a hill with a fairly heavy load in the trailer. It shut of immediately, without sputtering or stalling. Now it won’t start, no crank, no sound, nothing. What do I do next?
First thing I did was add gas. Still nothing. No sounds at all when I turn the ignition. Checked/charged the battery and it shows it is fully charged. I cleaned the battery terminals and cable connections and reconnected them. Still nothing when I turn the key. (I am depressing the clutch/brake, the attachment clutch switch is pushed in, and I was sitting on the seat). The headlights don’t even turn on. I visually checked the fuse, and it looked good. Again, the tractor was running well, and while it was running it just stopped cold. I don’t know what else to troubleshoot. Any suggestions would really be appreciated! Thanks.
