Just got a JD 185 from my neighbor, Ive been searching for a wiring diagram for it for a little while with no luck and the jd parts website has a pic of the harness with no colors or travels of the wiring. I have to ground the + wire on the starter solenoid, to the little connector on the side with a screwdriver to get it to start/crank. I will post some pics later on of the tractor, but thanks for any help guys!!

I have found getting what you are looking for a little harder for JD than most because they still hold the copy rights
and sell them as part of the service manual. I have a 175 which is just about the same as a 185, and replacing the key switch
with a new JD switch saved me a lot of time tracing out wires when I had a problem like yours in the pass. I used a meter, and JD parts site to ring out the switch, so that I was about 98% sure it was needed.
