Any one have a 50 hx out here? When turning the key nothing happens, no contact lights coming on. There is no power on the big wire feeding the switch. Tractor starts when using a screwdriver on the starter, but it does not drive, no electric to the valves.
Al the fuses tested ok, also cleaned the electric connectors on the left side of the front of the cab.
I do not have a schema for the wiring. Does anybody know if this tractor has a inline fuse somewhere and at what location?
Thank you

Sounds like you've found the problem, no power to the switch.

Just a matter of tracing the wire, see where it goes.

Is there an amp meter? That would be a good place to start.

Look for heat damaged insulation, corrosion, any connector plugs, crushed, burned, mouse chewed wires.

Shouldn't be too hard to find.
