If you’re having trouble starting your tractor, there’s a good chance that the starter solenoid is defective. If you need to bypass the starter solenoid, there are a few things that you’ll need to do. You’ll first have to remove the battery cover. Next, you’ll need to unscrew the two screws that hold the solenoid in place. Finally, you’ll need to disconnect the wires from the solenoid. Once you’ve done this, you can replace the solenoid and screw it back into place.
