Joel, Recheck battery to make sure it has good charge >12 v and all battery and starter wiring,plugs,connections are clean,tight and undamaged. If you remove spark plug and engine spins freely from the key, the engine compression release or valve clearance needs adjusted. It is probable the solenoid or starter is faulty, the starter Bendix/drive may be sticking. If you can, give the starter a couple sharp raps with a hammer or bar and then try to start.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides to help diagnose starting issue. Good luck

My best guess would be the seat switch. That’s usually what causes both conditions to shut down the engine.

With the lawnmower not running engage the blades, now you can use your hand to check the amount of tension as no parts should be moving so you won't have to take a trip to the er after doing so

Try cycling the safety switches.

1. Turn key to RUN position (1 position CCW from START)
2. Park Brake OFF/ON
3. PTO ON/OFF
4. Steering ARMs IN/OUT
5. Rise from operator seat and drop firmly into seat
6. Attempt start

If still doesn't run then likely the "START" relay. The Ariens have an atypical safety implementation and varies significantly model to model. Please comment below with your model number and I will assist further if need be.
