Sears LT3000 won't start/crank

I have the same problem as BryanWhite70. I have the Honda engine. Battery is good, oil and plugs are good. It just stopped working on 9/3/09. I do NOT know how to short it to test. Also, I cannot locate my owners manual to ID the starter solenoid, let alone know what I'm looking for to get a replacement part from the friendly Sears parts department. Any help would greatly appreciated. The grass is getting taller by the minute.

The neutral safety switch is located in the shifter housing.

Here is a link to a good article on this topic, that would beat an explanation from me.

Yes, it sounds like the NSS is the culprit.

Check the battery terminals. If they have become corroded you could be getting a bad connection. When the starter is engaged it creates such a power load at the connections that it will arc and loose power. Or, you could have a bad ground wire off the battery. Also check the positive cable leading down to the starter. Most of the mustangs had the battery cable leading to the starter between the engine and the exhaust manifold. Eventually they melt through and can cause a short. This would require replacing the cable. Good luck.

SOURCE: Engine won't Start

If you have 3 qts. of oil in your mower, drain it immediately. It only holds 3 PINTS or 48 ozs or 1 1/2 qts. Next, remove your spark plug and put the end away from the hole (to prevent possible arching and fire) and crank the engine over. Probably, a lot of oil/gas will blow out, clearing your cylinder. Clean the plug and try to restart. If it still reaches a point where the engine will not turn past while trying to crank, the valves need to be readjusted. Also check by smelling the dipstick that there is no gas mixed in the oil. That would mean your carb needle and seat are leaking.

My honda ran well until I hooked tail lights up and now I have neutral light and oil light no other lights work also it don't fire when I crank it lights come on as long as its cranking


Hi, Steve and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Faulty fuel pump fuse or relay.
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

      Park the Honda Foreman on flat ground and leave the engine running for 5 minutes to allow the engine to warm up. Place the oil drain pan under the crank case drain plug. Turn the engine off.

    • 2
      Remove the drain plug from the under side of the crank case using the ratchet set. Allow the engine oil to drain into the oil pan. Replace the plug to the bottom of the crank case and tighten the plug using the ratchet set.

      Remove the small screw from the side of the crank case using the Allen wrench. Remove the cap labeled "OIL" from the top of the crank case. Insert the funnel into the hole where the oil cap was.

    • 4
      Pour Honda 4-stroke engine oil into the funnel until the oil starts to come out of the hole where the small screw was on the side of the crank case. Once the oil starts to come out of the hole, stop pouring and replace the screw. Remove the funnel and replace the oil cap to the top of the crank case.

1995 honda civic won't start even with a jump


Well the battery and alternator would not have anything to do with the engine starting.
You would need to check the ignition system to see if you are getting the correct spark at the plugs when the engine fails to start.

Car would start sometimes and sometimes would not. now it will not start at all,there is no crank but there is a clicking, lights on dash n stereo etc. works.Two days before there was oil in the spark


First thing you need to know is if the starter has voltage, and if the engine crankshaft can turn. If the starter has voltage and a good ground, the battery is fully charged, and the crank can be turned by moving the alternator belt, the starter may have died.
If the oil was on the outside of the spark plugs your valve cover seals may be leaking.

Motor will not turn over. Checked air filter compartment to find 2 oz. of oil and filter soaked.


Not sure if you mean engine will not turn at all (locked) or engine will not start. The engine may have been on its side causing this condition. Clean carb and filter of excess oil. Remove spark plug and clean cylinder and plug of oil that may have entered causing locked condition. Replace oil lost from crankcase. With spark plug removed and kill swith on off, pull rope to blow out oil and verify that motor will now turn. If it still does not turn could be lock rod to crank or faulty pump. If engine had very little or no oil in crank and was run, suspect locked crank, however if your engine has oil senser, this condition would have prevented engine from starting. If you mean that engine will not start, low oil senser most likely preventing start due to low oil. Good luck

Hi,from the clues you give I guess that the starter motor is in need of a service (worn brush gear) I presume that when it does not start that the engine does not make a cranking noise.
If the engine is cranking but failing to fire up, then it could be anything from the fuel pressure pump to the engine control system. there is a lot of clever stuff going on when you start your engine. Some simple things you should try first. Check visually that all vacuum hoses and wiring is secure and in good visual order( dodgy looking wires are prone to intermittent failure!... Do this next time it fails to start and recheck after gently adjusting ? wd 40 may ease problem temp. Also check service of spark plugs especially correct gap.
Make a note of engine temp/ and air temp. loose wires are usually more loose in cold mornings!.. starting enrichment may not be sufficient with a wide plug gap. Check battery for full power output on starting. will it pull the car on the starter /
