I have a Troy Bilt 46" cut 2015 model 13YX79T011 Horse . It seems dead, changed safety switch on brake/clutch on left side. Battery fully charged, changed ignition switch also. When I turn on the key nothing happens. Can someone please help? It all started when I had to change the steering rod and had to lay it on its side after draining gas, oil and remove the battery. It started just fine before removal of steering rod.

Hi Butch7 - welcome to the site.
Start by checking whether the motor will spin via the starter, Pull the plug and try the steps listed here:
MLF starter troubleshot link
this will let you know whether the battery will spin the engine. If it spins the engine with the plug out, put the plug back in and try again. Also, check the fuse as referenced in the diagram. They hide the fuse in various locations on different models. Look around the engine compartment, under the dash and near the battery. The diagram shows it near the starter solenoid for starters.
if it doesn't spin the engine, then we can start looking at safety switches.
