Follow the heavy wire from the starter to the solenoid.
Also this problem is caused by a loose/bad/corroded ground connection

John Deere LT133 not starting

This is a common problem. The saftey interlocks are most likely keeping the tractor from completing the starter circuit. See the attached diagrams for curcuiit.

If off tracter ther park brake set switch must be closed along with thwe PTO off switch closed.

Where do I find the starter soleniod on a 2007 2520 John Deere?

Peter, To find the solenoid, just follow the positive cable from the battery to the solenoid. The solenoid may be mounted right on the starter of your tractor.

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

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

I have a John Deere 160 lawn tractor. Not used for past 8 years. When I hook up battery, starter wants to turn over immediately without using the key. Any ideas?

It either a starter problem or an electrical short cause by mice.
Disconnect the purple/white wire at the starter solenoid. If the starter still tries to operate then it is internal to the starter otherwise it is a electrical short.

My john deere 316 tractor will start but the starter keeps spinning, even if I turn off and remove key. I must disconnect battery at times to stop the starter. Any ideas?

It's not your switch, it's your starter solenoid sticking open. Te same way the starter spins a gear up to the flywheel an retracts it when it's not receiving power, the solenoid has an electrically operated contact toggle switch inside that over years of use and very likely corrosion, has now stuck in the open or on position. Replace it, they're really cheap and extremely universal. It's a simple design so they're used in automotive applications very commonly.

Jon Deere mower LX277 won't crank

Try replacing the starter solenoid. If that doesn't do it, try replacing the whole starter.

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.
