Scag Turf Tiger 29hp EFI wont start after I stopped it and let it cool down and refilled with fuel. It was hard to start when I first started it to mow. Check engine light does not light either. can hear it click and try to turn over, thats all. It is a 2003 model and has new battery. Kawasaki engine. Only 307 hrs on it.

    When I turn key to RUN positon don't hear fuel pump and volt meter doesnt do anything and check engine light by key does not light up. I checked fuses, seem ok. Starter is turning. Seems like not getting fuel or electrical issue. I was mowing with it and stopped to take a break and then refilled gas. It cranks like it wants to start but not getting fuel. Thanks!

The click is power goes to the solenoid.
A-Trying to turn , actually turn the engine but not ignition then your solenoid and starter working B_Trying to turn, but could not make a turn then there is not enough electrical juice to turn. In case A, You need to see if you have spark, and fuel since that is the culprit. 1- Try to start several rounds, then the out the spark plug. 2- If it wet then you have fuel. 3- If it dry then you don't have fuel. This is a problem. 4- With the spark touching the chassis, crank up the engine to see if you have strong spark, 5- If you don't then this is a problem.
In case B You need to charge the battery very well, then try again. If it is the same problem then you have to replace the solenoid. It gets corroded inside not delivering enough current to the starter to make it turns.
Attache here is the link to the manual, so you can see the schematic telling why the check engine light isn't on for this kind of problem on section 8 page 34. http://www.scag.com/OpManuals/STT/2003STTIPL/2003STTIPLcomplete06082.pdf

If its clicking but not starting and the battery is charged could be one of 2 things. The starter solenoid (the cheapest fix) you can try jumping the posts with a screwdriver and if it spins over and starts that's your problem at about $10-$15 but if not your issue is gonna be the starter motor which I suspect is 75% the case due to the clicking issue. Try and determine where the clicking is coming from. If the clicking is from the relay (very slight click from some and others don't click at all) then the relay is working. If the click is coming from the starter then your starter is sticking/going bad and having a hard time engaging. I've seen where you can sometimes remove the starter see if it spins over good (will have to ground the starter to metal to do this) and then reinstall is and solves the issue (if the starter is good), but if its failing it may work for a few more starts then start all over again with the same problem, or may just click. Try this first as it costs only time if you can remove it yourself..

    The hours don't really matter, the starter is the first thing to go when contsant start/stopping due to commercial use. These mowers start stop 20/30 times a day and the starters are a common failure. If you started your car this many times you would expect to replace your starter just as often.

I changed my fuel pump & fuel filter but engine sputters & stalls noticed fuel filter is not staying full of fuel. Filter is on the proper way, what could be the issue?


It sounds like you have not primed the fuel system after changing the pump and filter. You need to purge all the air out of the system to avoid the problem you have been getting. Refer to the manual as this will tell you how to do it on this model. If you don't have a manual, then you probably should not have tacked a job like this. I is always best to have manuals when you tackle repairs to equipment so as to avoid this sort of issue. If you continue to crank it and let it splutter, it may eventually purge all the air and start to run properly. Worth a try.

Check the air and fuel filters? They could be clogged, especially if it's running rough
