Question about Husqvarna Zero Turn Mower Z5426

1 Answer

Engine will not turn over

I have a Husqvarna Zero turn Mower Z4217. When I try to start it I get nothing but the battery is fully charged. If I jiggle the key when trying to start I get some clicking in 3 sets of boxes that are plugs and the engine doesn't even try to turn over.

Those boxes are probably relays. Sounds as tho one of your safety switches is not working correctly. Make sure you have the machines brake on, blade off, and any other safety measures are applied, such as the operator is sitting in the seat. Check the wiring connections at all the connections where the safety features are installed. Probably just a connection that is not letting the system know that all systems are indeed applied.

    Check the battery connections, both at the battery and where they connect to the machine. Even the ground cable where it connects to the mower frame.

Husqvarna 61 inch zero turn model ZTH6125 Engine cuts out.

Sounds like the safety switch may have stuck. Allowing it to set, the switch "released". Just my guess.

What should I try next? My mower will not start.

When you turn the key, do you have 12V art the Starter?
If you do, then tap the starter with a small hammer. If it cranks, then your Starter is failing

When trying to start my husquavarna 4824 zero turn mower it does nothing starter does not engage and battery is ok

Check your blade ingage switch. Sometimes they stick. You can jump start it by jumping across the solenoid switch beside the engine. I sometimes have to engage and disengage my blade switch and it starts. Hope this helps.

I have a gravley zero turn with a kawasaki 24 hp it wont start when i turn the key all you hear is 1 click down by the solenoid

Check the battery connections are clean and tight and that the battery is in good condition and fully charged. If you're not sure about the battery, use a fully charged car battery and a set of jump leads to test that the tractor will start OK.

Have a husqvarna zero turn I have to jump starter from battery for it to start....Why ?

Take the battery to your local auto store and have charge it and then do a load test on it. If it fails then it is a bad battery.

Husqvarna YTH20K46 no power. HELP!

Not turning off sounds like an ignition switch problem. Not starting - then I think you should check the Low Tension side of the solenoid again to make sure there is current from the switch. If the solenoid's OK, the battery's fully charged with all the connections clean and tight, then it has to be the starter motor or engine. Check you can turn the engine by hand, if so then I would guess, it's probably the starter motor.
Good Luck

When I turn key on I get nothing. No lights , no engine hours, no nothing.

If the battery is fully charged you most likely have a blown main fuse. If you can't find it send me the model of the mower and I will try to assist you. Regards Phil.
