Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
When the engine is running check the voltage at the battery. It should be over 13VDC or the battery is not charging and will go flat. The battery is charged by a stator under the flywheel and either the stator or the magnets on the flywheel have gone bad. this can be checked with an electrical meter as well. Stator output should be 13 or 14VDC on the red wire the orange or brown wire is for the headlights. All voltage checks should be tested with the engine running at wide open throttle. If it checks out start tracing the wiring harness for loose plugs or broken wires.
