B2650, 300hrs. I was mowing when the tractor shut down, like the ignition switch was turned off, will not start. I troubleshot the seat and neutral switches and fuses. All okay, no blown fuses. Battery indicator and the glow plug indicator light up with the key and I hear a click. Called my dealer for estimate….OUCH! I need to do some more troubleshooting.

On the surface it sounds like you have 2 problems.
1/ Will not run
2/ Will not crank

However:
Since it stopped running it may have sensed an 'illegal interlock' condition in which case it may not run or crank.
It's possible a connector away from the switches has got disconnected or a wire broken or pulled out.

I'd be looking for where a stick may have poked up and done something.

Confirm whether it will NOT crank and therefore not start, or if it cranks and does not start.

Being VERY specific in what is happening will get you the best advice.

Unlikely you have two simultaneous problems.

Sounds like an electrical issue, probably jarred loose a wire.

Same thing happened to me. Turns out a pressure plate finger broke and lodged between the flywheel and the housing. Stopped it dead immediately. Would not do anything.
