Need Help with Craftsman mower

I have a Craftsman riding lawnmower model 917.272201. It worked fine the last time I used it. I went back out to use it again and nothing. It made no noise at all. We have replaced the battery, the cylinoid, the relay switch and the ignition switch and still nothing, no noise or lights at all. Any ideas? We're running out of ideas. The only other thing we've thought of is the blade engaging button or the seat safety switch. Any help would be helpful.

There should be a fuse like the ones in your car. It will kill the power to the whole mower if out. Usually found in the hot wire from the ignition switch to the solenoid.Good luck!

Agreed... Probably a fuse blown. Look at the small red wire coming from the battery post on the solenoid. You should find the fuse holder there.
