If the battery and the charger are putting out 12 volts, then check the red and white cables at the foot pedal for 12 volts

SOURCE: old john deere gator and battery new charger still will not move

Could be several things.  Your battery could be bad. After not being charged for a while, they do go bad- often. You may want to try a new battery along with your new charger.  You could also have a switch /connection problem. If you get a new battery and it still doesnt work, you may want to check the switches and wiring. It is not uncommon for the switch to go bad especially if it had been stored outside.

I have a older bolens garden tractor that over charges the battery

Are you sure you did not mix your wires or they were mixed when you bought it? Two of the wires that come out from under the flywheel should be the same color go to the outside spades on the regulator and the center spade is to the battery , probably by way of through a gauge and key but for test purposes it will be the wire that feeds about 13.8 DC volts to charge the battery, the two outside spades on the regulator that have wires that go back under the flywheel are ac voltage anywhere from 18 to 38 volts depending on RPM of engine . Yours is a voltage regulator, Rectifier, converts it to DC and regulates it at 13.8 volts DC

Fitted a new battery and everything is dead

I've had this problem before too. I hope it's just this simple problem.
Just because it's new does not mean its charged up. Quality Lawn tractor batteries are often pre-charged at point of sale. So just pop it in and go. However; Low quality or cheap batteries are not charged and need to be charged once you get them home. Another problem is it may have lost it's charge from sitting around for a while before you bought it. Try charging it up and if it still doesn't work, return it.

Hope this helps. :)

Battery drains and won't charge

I would start by having battery tested. If u remove it and take it to auto parts store they will test it for free. It could be that the battery will not hold a charge or your tractors alt. is not putting out a charge

Husqvarna riding mower gth2448 won't engage blades after stopping or going in reverse. engine dies and have to recharge batter to get it started. New battery.

Check and make sure your charging system is working. You should be seeing between 12.6 - 13.2 volts at the battery terminals with engine running at full throttle. Frequent starting and stopping, the tractor does not allow the charging system to properly bring battery up to full state of charge. New battery or not, I've bought defective batteries in the past. I would recommend load testing the battery to ensure that it is not a defect.

John Deere 4100 compact tractor will not keep a charge. Has a magnet alternator,new battery ,and new voltage regulator. If you external charge battery, will start & run till useup charge. Then tractor...

If you hold a wrench against the back of most alternators when it's running the wrench should be attracted to the alternator which would indicate that its charging. If it isnt' charging then the regulator inside the alternator is burnt (typically) if it is charging then check the wires to & from the alternator.

New battery won't hold charge

the best way to check for a draw is to remove the neg cable from the battery charge if then place a test light between the battery and the cable if the light is on you have a draw then start to unplug connectors one at a time the first one i would test is the charging system plug first if the diode is bad it will drain the battery

My garden tractor is not holding it's battery charge. I replaced the battery, but still doesn't hold a charge after I use it.

If you replaced the battery with a new one and it is not holding a charge, then your charging system is not putting out enough power to run the mower AND recharge the battery. So you need to figure what is wrong in the charging system.

Tractor will start when jumped but will shut off when jumper cables are removed

Sounds like there is no charge going to the battery. First check any fuses on the machine then try this if you can't get hold of a test meter to check input voltage to the battery, Remove and fully charge the battery, refit it and then start thr mower. It should run fine for quite a while till the charge gets too low to support your ignition system. If this works out, the problem is in the generator circuit and requires futher investigation.

Batteries won't hold a charge

Are the batteries really gettin a full charge or is your charger faulty. If you can borrow a voltage meter you can see what your battery is putting out and check the charger (plugged in) to test how much voltage it is putting out. If the Razor is 12 volt you can hook up a car/motorcycle charger to pump up those batteries. I don't think your batts are not holding a charge, i think they're not gettin a charge....good luck to you...Tim
