Dead MTD Yard Machine

Completely dead !! No click, no groan. Battery @ 13.5 V; tripped the solenoid.."click, click"; cleaned all wire attachments; fuse OK; brushes in starter, bench tested, last year; how do I test the ign switch...has 5 leads from it...? What did I miss...?
Thanx for any help in saving this nice twin 17HP/42in., from a 12 ga. shotgun blast.
Charlie

I'd be checking all the safety switches.
Most have a seat switch, nutral position, PTO, and some times one on the clutch.
