Follow the gauge wires to where it is grounded, dismantle and clean the ground. Also clean the battery posts. Check that the battery is charging when the motor is running... if not then replace or repair the magneto or alternator where applicable.

SOURCE: John Deere Lawn Tractor LX176. Battery discharge

Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.

Here is a link to John Deere website for this model, it states that it has a 16 amp charging system. It also has the phone numbers listed for contact, and requesting the manuals for this mower.

SOURCE: need owner's and service manuals for John Deere Model 317/

First off, Mowerman's response was incorrect about the age of a JD 317.  They were made from 1979 to 1982.
You can only get manuals either through here:  http://techpubs.deere.com/deere/Default.aspx  or from a dealer.  They're expensive.  You can find them on ebay and also here: http://www.ssbtractor.com/tractor_manual_display.cgi?m=John%20Deere&o=317%20Hydrostatic but I haven't used that site.

Snow blower attachment M02462X052302 will it fit a GT262 tractor? Attachment and tractor are John Deere.


I see snow blowers as an option but 262 is not included in the list.

It says it fits 212,F510,F525,GT275, Lx172,LX173,LX176, LX178,LX186,LX188,LX255, LX266,LX277,LX277 AWS,LX279,LX280,LX288, LX289,STX30,STX38,STX46

Not to say you can't make it fit but it will take some work.

Best,

Joe

Bought new battery for john deer lawn mower, it keeps going dead. yellow light on all the the time, what is the yellow light for?


Possible the charging unit on the tractor is shorting causing a drain on the battery when it's not running. I had to replace one on my old machine. The yellow light I think is telling you there is power on some place Check you have to find out where the power is going to a meter might help test different areas. Could be different things. even the starter or a bad switch.Make sure the lights are not on.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the starter on a John Deere 285 garden tractor? The old starter was removed and no wires were labeled.


Generally starters ground through the engine, so that only leaves the positive wire. That one comes from the starting solinoid. Starting solinoid gets power from the battery. Anyway these wires are the biggest ones on the machine including the negative/ground wire from the battery.

I hope this helps.
