Got a Honda 4514 riding mower that has no electrical power to the switch, no lights, battery checks good, cleaned all the terminals, grounds. Check fuses all good, I can jump the starter solenoid and it turns over, have power to starter. Any body have any ideas?

First thing if you haven't done so already check 25A fuse in fuse block with an ohmmeter,same may be blown in fuse body & you can't see break if an auto type blade fuse,if fuse ok,check at battery pos(+)terminal,there should be a white wire connected to terminal along with heavy cable to starter sol,check that this wire not broken/disconnected from battery,if wire intact,follow white wire back into wiring harness,there is an inline connector on this wire to connect to tractor wiring harness,make sure this connector isn't disconnected/bad where they join,if connector intact & connections for each clean/good & connector plugs together tightly,then check at battery terminal on ign sw with a voltmeter/12v test light for power,if you have 12v at battery terminal on sw then problem in ign sw or elsewhere in electrical system/wiring harness on tractor.

If you don't have a wiring diag for tractor then do a google search for honda 4514+wiring diagram,click on link to and download service manual & either print pg 1-4 or whole manual(238 pgs).

IF you don't have the elect knowledge/tools to troubleshoot elect system GET HELP from someone who does or leave for local mower shop to troubleshoot/repair as this is an extremely intense wiring system & if you start going around with a jumper wire(s)you can quickly damage/burn up elect system/wiring harness.
