Make sure the tractor is in neutral, then take a jumper cable from the battery pos. directly to the starter post. If it still doesn't turn over then you probably have starter problems. If it does then it's a switch problem or you by passed the safety devices wrong. Or, with a volt meter check at the solenoid for power at the switch wire and if the power goes through to the starter wire. If the power goes through then again it's most likely a starter problem.

Battery checked for condition? Battery cable grounded end clean?
