Question about John Deere Garden

2 Answers

Why does my LA105 john deere lawn tractor only click when i turn key?

I replaced the solonoid and brake/clutch switch, also charged the battery. Nothin but one click when i turn key. Last summer you had to press in the brake pedal to just the right spot to get it to crank. That is why i changed the brake/clutch switch. Anyone know what I'm mssing other than the switch under the seat? Any other safety switches or problems i should be looking for?

The click you hear is the starter solenoid. If the starter doesn't engage, it is suspect.

Why will engine not start.


first make sure battery is fully charged and in good shape. Be sure pto is off and brake/clutch pedal is depressed. If still nothing then check fuse. After that its likely a safety switch or bad connection.

John Deere 855 Compact tractor has no power to solenoid


Power from the battery direct to a big terminal on the solonoid. The other big terminal leaves the solonoid for the starter. Then there are either one (1) or two (2) smaller terminals on the solonoid. If there is one then the body of the solonoid is the ground. With two of course the extra is the ground. Make sure the solonoid has a good ground.
Remove the smaller terminal from the solonoid ( usually yellow) and connect the positive end of a multimeter or a DC volts tester to it. ground the other end of the tester and turn the ignition key to start. If you get 12 volts to the wire end then the solonoid is bad and should be replaced. If no voltage is registered then the ignition switch is bad or an inline safety switch such as: nuetral, clutch/brake, PTO, seat ( Operator Presence Switch). Or you have a bad wire, bad ground, bad connection somewhere in the starting system.

I have a john deere 240 lawn tractor. It will not turn over. Bat. has 12.45 volts. i think my electronic pto switch has gone bad. Any way to check it?


Engine wont turn over on lawn tractor. There are several kill switches that could cause the problem. The seat switch, electric pto or the clutch switch. There are also fuses in the electric circuit that could be blown. If you hear a clicking sound when you turn the key then it could be a weak battery, weak starter or the engine has locked up. If locked up remove plug and squirt oil in spark plug hole. Sometimes that helps if cylinder has been flooded with gas.
