The first things to check, obviously, are cable connections and condition, ignition switch, etc. After that, I would check the interlocks/safety switches; you will probably find ones related to the seat, the transmission, and the blade engagement.

1) how are you certain the solenoid was faulty
2) how does it show the connection in your owners manual?
2a) you *do* have an owners manual... don't you?
