Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348
Mowed this morning with no issues, turned it off to bag the grass, went to start it and nothing but a type of grinding noise coming from the solenoid. Checked the battery, good charge, did a volt test from the battery to the soleniod with the key turned on with good results, with key still on did the test from the starter side of the soleniod with the key on and no voltage at all going to the starter. Is this a bad soleniod or bad starter. It is not the usual cliking noise you would hear if you had a bad battery, it is coming from the solenoid itself.
There won't be any voltage going to the starter until the key is turned to 'start' with the brake locked down. And to check that, you need to disconnect the wire to the starter. I would first check the current going to the solenoid when the switch is turned to start by disconnecting the insulated wire going to the bottom of the solenoid and hooking a test light or voltmeter to it and turn key to start. Again the clutch/brake pedal has to be held/locked down. If there is power going to the solenoid but not to the starter, it's a bad solenoid. Hope I've explained this so you can understand. Dwain
