SOURCE: mower wont start

how old is the battery,unfortunately they do not last very long maybe 2 years average due to non-use,vibration,have it load tested and the charging circuit output tested for output when its running at a high idle speed

SOURCE: john deere stx 38 with black deck, will not do

I see this problem not as an electrical but a seize problem. Since I can't be there to inspect I am relying on your discription of the problem. I would go first to the place of the problem. If this solenoid goes up to disengage and down to engage ,or the opposite, this is most likely your problem area. It may be seized in the disengaged position therefore not allowing the blades to get spinning. Disconnect the belt and try to turn unit by hand, if tight or completely stuck use penetrating oil on pulley shaft.If shaft loosens up and blades engage this was the problem. Is there a grease fitting anywhere in the area?I hope this at least gets you started in the right direction. GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: Have a Husqvarna riding mower

For a riding mower to start, all of the safety interlocks must be "made".
The brake may have to be set.
The transmission may have to be in neutral.
The blades must be disengaged.
The driver may have to be in the seat.
If one of the necessary interlocks is not "made", the mower will not start.

hi there dolson894

here is web site for owners manual

http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/husqvarna/yth180.html

download owners yth180 manual it has a wiring diagram in it - may help

sounds like a starter solenoid problem, check for good grounding of the negative bat cable and grounding of the solenoid to the frame , check for 12 volt at the solenoid tab ( not the heavy contacts)

this wire solenoid tab wire comes from the S marked terminal from the main switch and power from the battery is taken from the HOT post of the starter solenoid up to the B terminal of the main switch, from there when contact made between B + L + S @ SWITCH voltage sent to solenoid for start

basic connections for switch in start mode is B + L + S

run / light B + L and Makes A + Y

run B + L off G+ M +L

check seat switch and brake switch - bypass with jump wire if need
across white to wjite wires on brake switch

see what hapens , the try a jump wire across the seat switch wires green to green and retry

if stil no good - replace solenoid as you mentioned with a jump cable straight on start motor turns over good

I have a riding mower that will not turn over. I used jumper cabels attached to my car, stupid I've been told. I have done this before and the mower will start. When attached the mower engine will...


it is hard to say exactly what the problem is, but it sounds like the starter, starter solenoid, and or a charging problem. 1. last year I am assuming that the battery was low on charge and once you jumped it, it would start with the key for the rest of the season? if yes your battery should be OK just make sure at the end of the season you disconnect it and store it some where cool but not freezing. if you had to jump it all the time the battery and charging system has problems,(cables)(?). 2. if you have to use the car to jump the mower make sure the mower and car are both 12 volt systems, and the car should not be running. 3. make sure the battery is fully charged and there is no corrosion between the cables and connections. 4. once you do the above you can jump the solenoid to see if the starter is bad, if it moves it should be good, if you have to jump the solenoid make sure the mower is in neutral and the wheels are locked so it cant jump forward. also make sure all your safety switches are engaged, most mowers have switches on the seat, the blade engageing handle, and breaks.
The lights might have a bad connection at the battery, follow the wires from the lights for fuses and check them, some models have to be started before you can turn the switch back to turn the lights on.

Mower will run if jump started and continue to run but when turned off and back on will not start until jumped again.Meter does not show mower is charging


The battery needs to be checked.If its running with jump start this indicates that mower is fine but the battery is not supporting it for normal start.In some cases the battery has low charge so getting the battery charged helps.In some cases the battery is dead so battery needs to be replaced.And in some cases the battery is new ,its charged but actually the terminals from the battery gets rusted and do not get connected so this leads the problem.So check the battery,if its low on charge get it charged,if its not getting charged then replace the battery ,if its charged and new then clean its terminals and reconnect and check. But if battery is properly charged and connected properly ,then also you see the same problem then its fault in the starter and starter solenoid.It needs to be checked and replaced.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Jump solenoid with screwdriver


Turn key to run. Put screw driver to battery cable side while holding the plastic end of screw driver touch other end of screw driver to cable that goes to starter on solenoid and wjth full charge of battery you should have starter turning.

Clicking noise when car starts


The clicking noise is from the solenoid. If the battery is weak, then there is not enough current to make the starter turn. Therefore it is not necessary the starter is a problem. One of my experience is that the contact inside the solenoid can be rusty, corroded so there is not enough current flowing to the starter to make it work. The easy way to find out is to charge up the battery, or to have a jump start to see if the starter turns. If it turns then the problem with the battery. If with a new battery and still needing a jump start then the problem is the solenoid contacts, hence the solenoid needs to be replaced.
