My husqvarna wont go forward or reverse good I keep moving the 2 steering arms and it will move but not like it suppose to could it be the v belts and where are they located at

If the unit stopped at once, it is probably the belts. Check under the mower, they route over the wheel pump motors at the rear of the mower. Looking underneath from the rear you will be able to see the belt(s)

Not sure what all you checked but did you look at your drive belt? If it slipped of the pulley everything will still work just fine but it want move.

While mowing my lawn the Husqvarna YTH1542xp with a twin Kawasaki engine suddenly stopped. Will not start again, had blown 20 amp fuse, replaced fuse and starter engages, but engine won't turn over....

Maybe it threw a rod or piston.. maybe the piston seized up. Can you get the blade to rotate at all? Use a stick to try that, not your shoe.

My 42" Husqvarna (model #917.279240

Remove the center dust caps from the rear axles, start the tractor up and put it in gear and observe the axles, if one of them is spinning freely inside the wheel, you have lost the 1/4" square key that pins the wheel to the axle. Replace the key and you can go back to mowing. Hope this helped Tim

Far as I know the warranties are not transferable. Some hydrastatic transmission fluid can be checked by removing the battery and underneath there is a place to put the fluid and to check it. But not all models or makes gives you this option.
