Husqvarna model279200 - no spark

dugginmcgeeMarch 27, 2013

Someone gave this tractor to my son in law, They said it ran when they parked it three years ago. Of course it doesn't, I have no spark. I have a wiring diagram I down loaded, need to know if terminal M on ignition switch powers the ignition module for run, or grounds ignition to turn off ignition. all of my garden tractors that I own are presafety switch, so not sure how the seat switch comes into play on this machine.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Grounds to kill the spark.

First, I'd make sure the connector to the seat switch is fully "plugged in", and that the seat is fully opening the switch when occupied.

If that doesn't solve the problem, you probably want to remove the engine cowl and disconnect that wire from the coil to check for spark. Possible mice chewing off the insulation?? In any case that allows you to confirm/deny a bad coil.

A link to the manual so one could look at the actual schematic might be helpful.
