SABRE (John Deere) Garden Tractor Won't Start

Sabre(John Deere) 17.5hp Garden Tractor.

Initially worked with FixYA for almost a week & thought we had the problem solved until now; I had sorted out the problem when I discovered the battery's negative ground was not connected - attaching bolt at frame was severed. Attached new ground cable; all worked well for two days - tried it this morning & just get a ratcheting noise whereas originally got a click noise. Also cannot hot start from the battery to the starter. It is a new battery.

Still try jump starting it.

Make sure the key is completely off. It sounds to me like the battery is dead.

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...


Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.
