Husqvarna Riding Mower - Broken?

Last night I changed the oil on my mower and fired it up, it ran for about 10 mins without problem. Than it just stopped, I thought it stalled and I walked over and the think simply won't turn over, when I turn the ignition I see no movement on the battery meter. Of course it does have juice because 1) it just started and 2) I measure it with my multimeter. I can't find power going to the starter. So I'm trying to figure out what it could be, here's an electrical parts list from the manual if that helps:

My mower is a Husqvarna YTH150,

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Matt

I'd start by checking the fuse. It is usually near the solenoid inline with a red wire coming from the battery calbe side of the solenoid.

Fixed!

It was the fuse after all, I checked it last night after work and it was fried. Thanks!

Anytime! Glad I could help. The fuse can sometimes blow for no obvious reason... and you can put in another and never have another problem with it. However, if it continues to blow, there is a problem that needs to be tracked down and fixed.
