Murray Riding Mower

I have a Murray riding mower. Mower will not turn over. No lights, nothing. Battery tests good. Seat switch fuse is good. What should I look for next?

There are safety switches on the pedal (has to be pushed down when starting) and on the mowing blades somewhere (usually somewhere near the handle that turns the blades on. Also check your battery fuse (main fuse) and check to be sure voltage is running to the small wire on the starter solenoid.

But the lights should still come on when the ignition switch is turned on, correct?

Most come on when the switch is in the run with lights position but not in the normal run position.

Many have lights run direct from ac on alternator so only work when it's running and light switch on.

Run a jumper wire from the battery positive to the small terminal on the solenoid. If it cranks then it's exactly as said above. If not could be solenoid, or bad ground on solenoid or starter. Solenoid should click when voltage applied.
