 Gator wont start

Apart from the solenoid in the starter motor itself, there is a small relay which is normally situated on the side of the engine compartment just underneath the ignition module. With the tray up, you should be able to hear a faint click from this relay when you turn the key to the 'start' position.
This relay connects power to the small wire that goes to a push-on connector on the starter motor. To check the starter motor itself, unplug this small wire. Then, WITH THE MACHINE IN NEUTRAL AND THE KEY IN THE OFF POSITION, touch a piece of wire between the battery positive terminal and the now-exposed lug on the starter motor. If the starter motor is okay, it should spin up. And, if it does, the problem must be one of the following...
A/. The small relay
B/. The switch inside the transmission
C/. A dirty contact on the plug or socket that connects the main wiring harness to the engine wiring harness
D/. A dirty contact on the key switch connector
E/. a faulty key switch.

Cheers
