The starter must be drawing too much amperage. That is if it turns over a bit or hums when the solenoid is heard clicking If so replace the starter. But run these checks first!! Make sure batt. cables are tight at the starter and the battery. Make sure the engine to ground frame strap is bolted into the engine and frame. Check for power at the starter on the batt. terminal, the one going to the battery. Check for power at the start wire terminal, the little one, this is done while someone turns the key to start position. Check that power is getting to the other big terminal on the solenoid. If you are getting power at all these places other than the start terminal, then the ignition switch may be bad. If you are getting power to the start terminal the switch is good. If all the above checks out then replace the starter. Note: A shorted starter will superheat the cables, so if they are getting really hot, the starter is probably shot. Hope this helps, plese post solved on fixya.com. if it does, So I get credit .for a solved problem. If not, check back and give me more info.

The engine needs air, so be sure the air filter is clean. If it is not, replace it.

The engine needs spark. Replace the spark plug and be sure that the battery has a complete charge.

The engine needs good fuel so be sure the gas is newly purchased, not gas that has been sitting around for months.

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.

Check the brown wire feeding your voltage regulator,its between batt and steering wheel behind left side of frame.LX100 series machines had a problem with brown wire not fully contacting terminal in regulator.You will know you had bad contact if plastic is discolored.

SOURCE: john deere lane rider la135 wont start.

You don't mention if they are on and are bright or are week. Do they dim when trying to cranks the motor? I would start with checking the ground wire at the battery and where it connects to the frame. Make sure both are clean. From there, have the battery tested and then the starter.

SOURCE: problem with John Deere L120 tractor

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

John deere x540 with140 hours. Jump started from storage and cut 2 hours without issue. would not crank back up. Installed new battery and checked fuses. Lights and all come on but will not crank.


would not crank Chet, Relay,Solenoid or starter may be defective, give the starter a sharp bang with a hammer, to see if it is stuck.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Why does the battery go dead overnight after john deere z425


Need additional information...Check to see if it is the new battery or the electrical system first........ when the battery is "up", disconnect from the system. Remove both wires from the battery...connect the next day and see if the battery will crank the mower. I've experienced new battery's that have an internal short....Let us know whether battery or John Deere electrical system.....and we can troubleshoot from there...

John Deere 165 will not turn over. New battery has fuel. Engine clicks one time when I turn the key. Could this be starter or solenoid? How do I trouble shoot?


"One click" tells me it's a connection issue. Remove and wire brush the ground and battery cable connections at the battery, chassis, starter and starter solenoid.
