What might I have fried?

Recommended Posts

Was getting the 5216 ready for mowing today. Rebuilt the deck over winter and I changed the oil and put the battery in. Turned the key and the starter didn't engage - just spun. Tried a few times, still nothing. Looked at the battery with my glasses on and I had the terminals reversed! Changed it out and it started right up. A few hours go by and I go back out to start it and nothing. Not even a click. Battery checks out OK. What did I mess up? Starter? solenoid? Circuit breaker???

Checked the breaker for continuity - OK. Solenoid checked OK for continuity - read 9 Ohms resistance. Seat switch seems OK for cont. I'll have to check blade switch too I guess. Could starter be a problem even though it did start and I ran it for a good 10 minutes once it started?
