Why does the tractor make a clicking sound and not start? If the riding mower makes a heavy clicking or a rapid clattering sound when the key is turned to the start position, there is a problem with the battery or a part of the starting circuit. The clicking noise comes from a part called the starter solenoid.
Your Mower Won`t Start:

Other possible causes include: Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas.

You can also attempt to recover the battery by overcharging the fully charged battery using a low amp trickle charger. Charge the battery for 24 hours using a regulated current of 200mA (milliAmps). This will boost the battery`s terminal voltage to 2.50-2.66 volts per cell and raise the battery`s internal temperature.
First, attach a RED clamp to the positive terminal (+) of the DEAD battery. Next, attach the RED clamp from the other end of the cables to the BOOSTER battery`s positive terminal (+). Then, attach the BLACK clamp to the negative terminal (–) of the BOOSTER battery.
