Question about Garden
TEST #1Using a remote starter switch
or a suitable device, make a connection between the large terminals on the
solenoid. If engine does notcrank!!!•Battery may be weak or dead•Starter
may be bad•Battery cables may have bad connections•
Do notgo to Test #2 until this test gives results.
If engine did crank in test #1, disconnect green wire at spade connector and apply positive voltage from the battery to the yellow wire with the orange stripe. The positive voltage can also be picked up on the solenoid terminal where the fuse connects. Make sure the green and black wire with the eyelet is well grounded. If engine doesn’t crank now, replace the solenoid.Remember, all other tests are useless unless these two tests make the engine turn over.
If engine did crank in the first part of test #2, reconnect green wire to solenoid. Using a jumper wire attached to the positive terminal of the battery, apply 12 volts to the red wire on terminal B of the ignition switch. Try to crank, using the ignition switch. If engine cranks, the fuse or the fuse holder, or related wiring is defective somewhere back to the solenoid.
TEST #4:--If engine did notcrank in test #3, this time move the jumper wire attached to the positive terminal of the battery, to the green wire on S terminal of the ignition switch. Ignition switch does have to be activated for this test. If engine cranks now, ignition switch needs replacing.
The other possibilities can be faulty PTO switch or the faulty CLUTCH.
Apply 12 Volts to this terminal. Clutch should activate, if it doesn’t, clutch is defective.If clutch checks OK, use a voltmeter to measure for 12 volts at the brown wire’s terminal. First turn ignition switch to the ONposition but don’t start the engine. Now engage the PTO switch. For the first test put the negative probe on a good ground, noton the white wire’s terminal in the plug. If no voltage is measured, move on to next test.-------The problem may be a poor ground on the white wire in the clutch plug. Check by testing for continuity to ground or check for voltage between the two terminals. If no voltage is measured, move on to next test.--------Some of our clutches have a different receptacle for the wiring harness, but the testing is the same. The white wire is always the negative terminal and the brown wire is the positive.----------With the PTO switch ONthere should be continuity between these two connectors, if not, replace switch. If switch tested good, check wires and connectors back to ignition switch and back to clutch plug.:-------
