Cub cadet rider

!st, I have a small repair business, me only in my garage, but no one to nudge and say "what do ya think?". I working on a cub cadet, LTX 1045, 13AX91ATo56 s/n 10289HZ0053 (2009). Customer power washed and now there is no power. Fuse good, battery full charged, starter relay good, starter spins with cable from +battery to starter red lug. Safety switches ring good (w/ ohm meter). Relay works with 12v to safety wire terminal. Key switch replaced, hour meter replaced. No lights on when key to run. Nothing lights up on hour meter. Parking brake on, PTO off, switches read as they should (parking brake and foot pedal set and switches ring out as should on schematic).
All connecters / connections in place and tight. Totally lost, PLEASE help

Do you have 12 volts on both legs of the fuse?

Yes, I actually removed the fuse and twisted the wires together while trouble shooting.

Check the ground connection to be sure the frame and engine are grounded. Do you get a click out of the carburetor solenoid when you turn the ignition on?

You'll have to take a test light or DVM and follow the main power from the solenoid to the fuse to the key switch and so-on until you find where the power is lost. The multi-connector that plugs in the engine harness is a common place for problems. The connectors inside the fuse holder are also common places for failure.

Thanks for the responses. Found that the wire from the fuse to the key switch was internitent which is why I thought that connection was good. Replaced that wire and all is good in the world!

I replaced the ignition switch on my RZT50. Started cranking every time.
