When I turn the key I get absolutely nothing. No crank whatsoever. I should have did some research before going out to buy a new battery. Brand new battery and still nothing. A search of this issue led me to this forum, and based on my reading it sounds like it could possibly be one of the kill switches (under seat and brake). I read I could test it by running a wire from the battery to the solenoid but I get a lot of sparks and the wire gets too hot for me to hold it long enough to turn over. I am definitely out of my league a bit here, but I really want to try to fix this myself instead of having someone haul it away and charge me near what I paid for it.

One comment (Dennis) referenced the small terminal of the solenoid. I don't even know how to tell which that is.

Does the fact that it at least sparked reveal enough to point me in the right direction?

One other piece of information I am hoping is helpful is that I haven't been able to move the tractor at all. I wanted to move it toward the front of garage where I have more light, but when I put it in neutral and seemingly release the brake I can't get the tractor to budge.

Would the kill switch related to the brake prevent it from moving even without power?

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
