It sounds like you have an ign. wire grounded or your ign switch has a short in it. Also remove the cover on your starter drive to be sure it has released.

SOURCE: ground wire from key switch starts burning when i

You have a ground issues somewhere of where a wire may have rubbed the frame and is shorting out, wrong solenoid (frame ground verse wire ground) or a starter issue.

Take the starter off and test it with a good battery and jumpers to make sure its working correctly. Second...start tracing your wires back to the solenoid and then to the switch looking for bare or loose wiress.

Check to see if you left the blades engaged. There is a safety switch that prevents starting with blades engaged. Easy to miss, happened to a friend of mine last month.

If this really helpful, please rate.

SOURCE: have a john deere sabre

Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

John Deere LA140 won't turn. New battery. No sound when I turn the key. No headlights, what should I do?


Check your connections at the battery. May have a bad ground or bad battery connection. Also check to make sure new battery is good by supplementing with a jump start. If new battery is good and connections are solid, you most likely have a broken wire somewhere. The lights may only work with the mower running though. I believe on my LA105 the lights only come on with the engine running and dim/brighten with the RPM of the engine.

John deere Z225 riding mower won't start .hour meter lights up .jumped across starter solenoid and it started three times and run.replaced with a new starter solenoid and nothing then tried jumping...


measure with a valt meter and see what your voltage is at the battery . now measure what you have for volts at the soleoid. then check to see if you are getting 12 volts to the single peg on your soleoid, usually a whitwe wire. If your not getting voltage to this wire you probably have a safety switch problem. If you are getting voltage here check to make sure you are getting voltage at the starter motor. If your getting voltage there you may have a bad ground at the starter motor or the whole motor may need to be grounded to the frame.

Murray riding mower won't starter, new solenoid, new spark plug and trying start it from the start turn over but won't start and try from the solenoid still no go.


You need to pull the spark plug out, connect the spark plug wire and ground the plug to the motor and see if you have spark. If you have spark (bright blue) then it is a fuel problem. A yellow spark is and indicator of a coil issue.
