Check the brown wire feeding your voltage regulator,its between batt and steering wheel behind left side of frame.LX100 series machines had a problem with brown wire not fully contacting terminal in regulator.You will know you had bad contact if plastic is discolored.

If you have access to a volt meter, with the engine running at full RPM check the voltage at the battery terminals. It should read around 13.5 to 14 volts. If it is just showing 12 volts or even less, your charging system is at fault. In this case I/we would need to know which engine is in your tractor (MAKE-MODEL-SPEC#) While you are taking the voltage reading also check your battery terminals for corrosion and tightness.

John Deere Lawn Tractor LX176. Battery discharge


Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.
