Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a John Deere lawn tractor Model # LTR166 that won't start and won't even turn over. I found a wrapped wire harness with a female plug - it has 2 purple and 2 white wires that is just dangling and I can't find where it should be plugged in. Do you know what it for and roughly where the receptacle should be? It looks likes it should be at the bottom of the engine.

    Does it make any sound at all when you turn the key?

Wiring diagram for a john deere sst18 lawn tractor


Russell if you truly want to figure out this problem you need to look at the wires and ware they connect .And what they connect to then drew your own wiring diagram its not that difficult if you break down and do a few tests with an OHM meter to see what is connected and what happens when you through a switch or run a jumper wire to a ground .
If you think about its not really that complex .

John Deere Z840A Z-Trak mower. Why does engine die when PTO is engaged?


A possible cause is an open seat switch (operator presence). Locate the switch under the seat & unplug the switch from the harness. Place a small jumper wire into the female socket leads to the wire harness. If the PTO engages without engine shutting down, replace the seat switch.

Check to see if the mower deck is plugged or a piece of wood/debris is wedged between the deck and a blade, or some wire/rope is wrapped around a spindle. If the blades don't turn by hand, it'll stall your engine when the electric PTO clutch is energized.

Lastly, a discharged battery will cause an engine shut down if there's not enough reserve when the PTO is engaged. Measure the battery voltage with a meter. If the voltage is below 11.5 volts, you may have to replace the battery.

Mower won't stay running it stops when you make a


We have a John Deere riding mower and this happens every once and a while. It turns out to be a problem in the wiring connection next to the battery, I have to wiggle the 2 plug in connectors, 1 male 1 female and then ot starts. The larger wire that powers the machine to the key picks up battery acid corrosion every year. A design flaw. wrap with electrical tape but not so tight you will damage the wires, clean both ends with electrical cleaner then you may or may not use a light corrosion spray before reconnection...and wrapping...

John deere 425 lawn tractor. it wont start but it has spark and fuel the starter engages and the fly wheel turns


If your tractor has an anti back fire solenoid in the front of the carburetor then it should start if you remove it and cap it off with a pipe plug.It should run if the solenoid is the problem,if so you really should replace it but if it is'nt prone to backfiring with it remove you don't have to.You may also have a bad seat switch,confirm this by jumping the plug with a piece of wire to temporarily test it.
