    If you have correct voltage at the starter and the starter doesn't engage than it's probably safe to say the starter is bad.

    You could always connect one end (+)pos of your jumper cables to the battery, then touch the other end to the Pos(+) stud on the starter.
    if nothing, then, replace the starter.

    If it turns over it's something else.

    if you need to use it turn the key on and jump the starter.

    check safety switches, ie do you have a bar that needs to be down..

    Been reading the forum for quite a while and figured id jump in on this one. Hope I can help you out... Well here it goes there should be a fuse panel between your legs typically in the bobcats. Right on the seat post. If you have b+(battery voltage) at the main pos termal then check for voltage at signal termal and work your way up the starter circuit. If you have no relay click I wold be looking in that direction. Check fuses first then go after your start relay. I will see if I can dig up a schematic for you.

    Jump the starter. Do it like it has been suggested. I have a 753 C series and a 873 F series. Both of these have there fuses located in the engine compartment. They are ether on the left or right of the motor about 10-12" up from the floor of the compartment. They have black covers on them. Kinda sound like a fuse to me.

    Just had the same problem, it ended up being a relay...that was my personal problem, maybe yours is different
