Question about John Deere Tractor 1020, 1520, 1530, ITJD37

1 Answer

I have a 1520 tractor where the starter was staying engaged even after the key was in the off position. This eventually caused the battery ground terminal to burn off and the battery to discharge. Any thoughts? Bad starter? or what?

What would cause no spark when the starter motor is engaged and spark when the the key is the run position.


It's the safety switch under your seat. Did you sit on the tractor when you tried to start it? If you didn't the spark would have been shorted. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Usually when the key is turned to start position the starter soleniod engages thus applying power to the starter. There are three possible causes to your problem . (1) Check for 12vdc at the terminal on the soleniod when the key is turned to start position, if there is 12vdc at the terminal then the key switch is good. (2) loose or bad cable connection at the soleniod, check connections. (3) bad soleniod -- replace it. generally you will hear a click from the soleniod when the key is turned to start position. Also be sure to check that ALL safety switches are engaged. You may need someone to sit in the drivers seat so that switch will be "made" / engaged. Park Brake is set, mowing blades are "NOT " being engaged, on some mowers if the transmission is in reverse ,even tho the brake is set the mower will not start.

You most likely have a short in the wiring to the starter.

Last time I saw something like that a vehicle's exhaust headers created heat which eventually melted the wire's insulation and several of the wires were exposed and shorting on each other and the ground of the vehicle. If possible, get the car on a lift and inspect your starters wiring....

Hope this helps...

Makes clicking noise when we turn key we replaced seloniod and now we cant get nothing out of it it wont click and it wont turn over what did we do wrong weve did it before and it worked fine


check all electrical connections between battery and starter both positive and ground, also check battery condition and charge, If the seloniod has three posts on it jump the positive side of the battery where it connects to selonoid across to the small center terminal of the selonoid and this will cause the electromagnetic unit to to send power to the starter, if this proves unsuccessfull, use a jumper cable to jump the battery 12v power directly to the large electrical terminal on the starter itself, this will spin the starter motor but might not engage the gear drive

get a wire that goes to the positive terminal on the battery and touch it to the bolt on the starter and see if it works then. if not, the starter could be bad, screw the plastic gear back up til it engages in the flywheel on the engine and hand turn the lawnmower with the starter gear engages to loosen it up then try

My car wants to keep starting even after turning the key off


solenoid may be sticking. Have someone start the car, if it sticks tap the solenoid with screw driver handle. If that stops the starter, replace the solenoid. If it were me, I wouldn't bother testing it and just replace solenoid.

My mower wont start...i replaced the battery and it just clicks


Have a friend jump start the mower while you a seated on it. Turn the key to the "on" position. Connect the black jumper cable from a known good battery to a good ground on the mower and the red cable directly to the electrical connection of the starter. If the starter does not engage, it is faulty.
