John Deere Z425 zero-turn mower won't turn over.

mfivez3mApril 30, 2014

John Deere Z425 zero-turn mower with 23-hp Briggs & Stratton.
Turning the key produces nothing more than a click and no cranking, even with a fully charged new battery and freshly wire-brushed terminals and lead connectors. Brake is on and steering handles are stowed outward for correct microswitch positions.
Relay? Wiring? Leads?
Any insight would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

I'm no mechanic but sounds like the starter isn't engaging, Does it have a solenoid? If so you should be able to bypass it, Can you turn the key to the on position and jump start it at the starter? Are you sure the motor isn't locked up, check the oil, Hope some of these suggestions help.
