Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

Problem starting My YTH2454 has developed a problem starting. It will make a clicking sound or no sound at all when I turn the key. I have replaced the battery and electric relay between battery and starter. I can jump it with a cable connecting the battery directly to the starter with the key on. Is the starter bad?

If you jumping direct to the starter and it is starting then the is okay and there is another problem in the circuit.

Need the other numbers on the id tag to look-up the wiring for further diagnosis.

SOURCE: Dead starter, I think!

it does sound as though your starter is dead , depending on the make/model of starter you might be able to get a replacement carbon brush pack which will save a lot of money , please post the starter /engine details

SOURCE: the mower will not start

hello can you hear a clicking noise this noise should come from the starter solinoid (A heavy duty switch with two big poles and one smaller one) it is common for these to burn out a quick test is to take 12v off the battery and put it on the little pole on the starter solinoid this should trigger the solinoid...

If this starts your tractor then there is a problem with the fuses or wiring before the solinoid

SOURCE: will not start. Replaced battery thinking it was

make sure all connections are CLEAN first. Especially if your battery wire has a plug and socket connect at some point. To test the starter make sure you can tell which leads are which ( - Black = negative or + Red = positive) Don't guess or assume. MAKE SURE. Then you can test the tractor starter with your car battery and a pair of jumper cables. But (Und this is a big but!) Make sure the tractor battery is 12Volts and not 6 volts!If it is 6 volt you can't test it with your car battery.

SOURCE: riding mower-starter relay clicks-no start even with jumpers.

The frame of the tractor is the same thing that starter grounds to,so yes ,put the ground any where on the frame or engine block to test the starter.An easier way to test everything is to cross over the large posts on the solenoid with a screwdriver and if it turns then the starter is not the problem.Then you will need to put power from the post on the solenoid that has the battery positive connected to it ,to the post on the solenoid that should come live with the key,if it starts then then you likely need an ignition switch if not you need the solenoid.

Will not start, battery is new, it just clicks and nothing. turn it off, try again and nothing, try again and it starts

Try cleaning and tightening well the battery connections along with the battery wires to the solenoid and starter motor.

Bad connections and low voltage of 12 volts can result in this anomaly.

Clicking sound but engine won't start

This actually does sound like the battery is low on charge. A battery which is quite low on charge will still light the headlights and run many other electrical accessories, but will not engage the starter (which requires much more power than other accessories).
I would start by making sure that an electrical device, such as interior lights, glove box lights, trunk light or something else has not been left on. Then carefully jump start the engine. It is also possible that the battery might need to be replaced for not holding a charge.

Wont start but makes weird stuttering sound

Sounds like the battery is low on charge or is in need of replacement in most cases.
I would not change the starter until trying a new battery that is fully charged.

check to make sure yu have 12v at the battery, once you do turn the ignition to start, if nothing, check the fuse and relays that control ignition, if all is good then the click sound is coming from the starter, have the solenoid replace.
