Battery?, wiring?? Had a recent problem with blades not engaging. I have had also had a slightly older issue of battery not holding charge so i have to boost or jump start mower. I went out and bought brand new battery and after one usage it would not hold charge and blades will still not engage. Would the issue related to the battery effect the engagement of the blades???

If your Alternator didn't charging the battery, even though you brand new battery will not last. So there is two possible cause, 1) Your Alternator is not functioning. 2) there is a wiring problem that causing your battery to discharge easily, but you check it after you switch off the key remove the battery negative terminal then touch it back to batt term. and see if there is little blue spark, if does your wiring system got problem. If not, so your Alternator do not charge the battery.

Is the red light on before you engage the blade?

There may be a blown diode in the charging circuit.

Battery- If this light illuminates while the engine is
running, it indicates that the battery is in
need of a charge OR that the engine's
charging system is not generating sufficient
amperage. Refer to Battery on page 26 of
this manual for the properbattery charging
procedure or have theengine's charging
system checked by a Cub Cadet dealer.

Husqvarna pto problem(?) disengaged blades to travel, would not engage after. Battery dead when checked after shutting off engine and wouldn't restart


Hi, first charge or replace the battery if necessary then check that the mower is charging the battery. The pto is probably fine but it needs battery voltage to engage. If the mower has stopped charging the battery may have had enough voltage to hold the pto in until you disengaged it but not enough to re engage it. Regards Phil.

Turn key doent start


Do you here a clunk when you turn the key to start? If so that is the starting coil pulling in, if not the starting coil may be bad or battery drained or safety switches in wrong position, but check battery voltage and connections. I had a friend recently leave the lights on and drained the battery. If battery drained charge it or jump start your mower and mow for a while to charge. Also check to make sure your safety switches are in the right place. I had another friend that had a kid playing in her garage and he had engaged her blades and the safety prevents starting the mower with blades engaged. Also if you have an electrical engaging of blades versus a manual if the blades were left engaged while sitting it will drain the battery also.

My mower discharge when the blades are ingauge


The wires connected to your PTO are the key to your problem. The electric pto is designed to run off the engine charging system when it is engaged and will run your battery down if it isn't. The fact your battery will charge and hold a charge tells me it is probably ok. You will need a wiring diagram to figure this out. You might check outdoordistributors.com. They have pdf files that you can view online for most lawn tractors. Good luck Tim

The electric clutch needs full power in the battery to stay engaged. I would recommend you check your charging system before replacing the battery. Put a digital volt meter across the + and - terminals of the battery and while running at about 1/2 throttle you should be over 13 volts DC. Probably around 13.5 or so. If not you have a charging problem. Lawn mower batteries I have seen seem to last only 2-3 years. I would also recommend a trickle charger for extended periods of non use. Don't forget the Stabil also.

Hope this helps.

John Deere 318 blades won't engage once it gets hot.


Check the clutch gap in the front of the machine (the one that engages the belt) by tightening or loosening three lock nuts around clutch. Tightening decreases gap/ loosening increases gap. Note: do not tighten too far as it will result in clutch drag or lockup! Stop when its just starting to touch then back off slightly. Also without a proper charge on the battery the magnetic power for the clutch is altered and not strong enough to engage clutch when hot. Find out why battery light is on.

Husqvarna Mdl YTH2448 Riding Mower - Electric PTO Not Working


It sounds like your charge system is not working. If you jump the battery the engine will run with a weak battery but the pto clutch needs a strong battery to stay engaged.Try this to test it,after you jump it leav the jumper cables hooked up and try to engage the blade clutch,if it runs it is either a battery that wont take a charge or a charge system not working. If you put a volt meter on the battery while the engine is running and the voltage is 13 volts the charge system is working and the battery is bad.

Husqvarna yth2448 pto switch kills motor/battery will not charge


you may hav a bad alt. problem with the mower dying when you engage the pto is most likley a bad sensor or wire unplugged on the seat sensor.the way it works is if the blades are turning and it dosent sense you being on the seat the mower shuts down.this has been standard on mowers for quite a few years now. it keeps the blades from cutting you up if you fall off the seat while mowing. as for charging i would try cleaning the battery connections and get the battery checked first.

these mowers are riddled with safety switches. i would lean toward one of them malfunctioning. is the battery charged up? a weak battery will not engage the electro magnet.
