won't start every time

jon shea tractor will start, i;ll work the tractor then when i shut it down it won;t start again for days, sometime weeks then i;ll go to start it and it will start right up. any advise would be appreciated. jon
bontai Joe Would help if we knew what model and year the tractor is? Gas or diesel?
jon shea
2000 or 2001 4200 compact utility tractor diesel fuel. sometimes starts and runs good, then won't start at all

bontai Joe The first thing I'd check is the battery cables, are they corrosion free? Have clean tight connections at BOTH ends? Check the wiring at the key switch, is it tight, clean, corrosion free? Check the wiring at the starter motor also.
jon when i try to start the tractor, it turns over but won't start
