Neighbors Pilot stuck half way down the driveway .... she turned it over no problem dropped it in gear and stalled. Went to turn it over again no crank , fuel pump primes I can hear it .
Tossed a new battery in the Pilot that I have for jumping purposes same issue. Tapped on the starter..still nothing still just the usual lights on the dash when you start up. I noticed the brake pedal is hard at the moment probably from pressing on the brake to shift gears to see if it was the nautral safety switch. Checked all the grounds and cables nice and tight.

Thoughts ?

Try jumping from battery positive to the solenoid connection on the starter. That's the small wire. No click means bad starter. If it starts with jumper, your problem is upstream in the control wiring.

This seems to be the year for starter issues. Same thing only on my riding mower instead of my vehicle. Working perfectly when mowing. Few days later nothing. New starter, starts and runs perfect.

Mine only had 2 seasons on it, but being a Cub Cadet it has a 3 year warranty.

Yup, sometimes starters warn you when they're going bad, and sometime they just up and die. The latter happened to me last summer, but I won't go into the details again so I don't make @andywatson cry. :)

That's the hot lead to the brushes. Was it corrosion, or did the starter short internally and burn out the lead? In any case, it's due for replacement.
Corrosion... as soon as i touched it the darn thing crumbled
