MTD Lawn Tractor Ignition System Problem

I cannot start my MTD Yard Machine with the ignition switch. I have replaced the ignition switch and solenoid with no luck. I can start the mower by jumping across the solenoid and can shut if off with the ignition switch once started in this manner. Any ideas what to check next?

There should be a third small wire connecting to your solenoid. When the key is turned to start, it should supply 12v volts. Make sure the connection is good and the wire is not broken or shorted back to the key.
Also make sure the solenoid itself has a solid connection to ground.
