 JD 4210 starting problem

My 4210 will not start, turn the key, solenoid clicks strong but nothing when I turn the key. I have replaced seat safety switch but still nothing. Engine will not turn over not even jumping the starter solenoid with screw driver. Any ideas appreciated.

 JD 4210 starting problem

My did something similar the other day and I found a loose Ground cable on the battery. It's fairly easy to determine, when you turn the key to start, it clicks and all the lights go out, and then nothing. If you haven't already checked it, I'd start there.

Not a battery problem, all grounds are tight and secure, battery fully charged. It cranked and ran until my son stopped and got up to attach the bucket and it went dead like the PTO was engaged but the electrical switch was in the off position and the transmission was in neutral.

If the solenoid clicks I do not think it is a safety switch for it to click means power is to the solenoid.

If you tried jumping it with cables on your battery cables it still could be a bad connection with a cable.

It could be a bad solenoid or starter and making the clicking sound. If you have an amp meter check the amp draw on the batter cable when you hit the key. If major draw look at the starter.

I understand your son cut if off to connect the fel and it would not start. But the solenoid does click. I think you going to find issue with the battery to the starter and maybe one of them. Realize you do not think that but had a ground cable to fool me once but careful checking showed it had to be with it and it was. Had a glaze inside the clamp on the post that broke the current flow. kt

Amp test shows no voltage loss on battery cable to starter, or smaller wire on selonid when in cranking position. Tractor acts as suppose too when you turn key to on position, just nothing happens when you turn key to start position. I ordered a starter today, we'll see if that is the culprit.

You can test the starter and I sure would before I bought one.

Turns out the problem was the neutral safety switch located under the platform floor. Pain in the butt to get to, basically have to disassemble the seat shroud and platform to reach the switch. Working right now with a jumper wire, picking up a new switch this week. Thanks for all the input.
