John Deere 165 will not turn over. New battery has fuel. Engine clicks one time when I turn the key. Could this be starter or solenoid? How do I trouble shoot?

"One click" tells me it's a connection issue. Remove and wire brush the ground and battery cable connections at the battery, chassis, starter and starter solenoid.

I have a John Deere LA135, I'm looking for a wiring diagram so I can bpass all of the safety switches to see if it will start then.


there is two things that shut down the engine through the safety switches, 1 is it grounds the coil wires so it quiets firing the spark plugs, they are small flat spades on each of the coils under the flywheel shroud, unplugging the key switch should overcome that . The second thing is there is a wire that fastens to the bottom of the carb that opens a solenoid to allow fuel to the main jet, unplug it and put a jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to the wire on the carb and this will open it so it can run. Now touch the two big battery cable nuts on the starter solenoid together with a screw driver or metal pliers handles to turn the engine over and when it starts stop touching the terminal on the starter solenoid. To kill the engine unplug the hot wire to the fuel solenoid from the + battery terminal. If you can read wiring diagrams you can do this. Like you I want to hear it run before I put much time into it,

I have a 2008 la 115 john deere riding mower. It won't start in less I put a large screwdriver on the solenoid. the fuse looks good as well. I replaced the ignition switch and solenoid too.


When you try to turn over engine with key it turns over slowly and stops? It acts like starters not working properly? If this sounds like it and it's a single cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine ohv's your valve specs are off they need to be checked and adjusted every 200 hrs. If you need further assistance let me know. Wadembly@aol.com or call 831-578-4034 pacific standard time ( California)

I have 2000 john deere 420 and it wont turn over


The starting circuit is dependent upon the clutch safety ans PTO being off. Here are some steps to take:
1. Ensure battery is fully charged
2. Turn key on and turn PTO on then back off. Listen for clunk
3. Press clutch in fully and turn key to start position. If still no sound at all, hold key in start position and move clutch foot up and down, listening for solenoid click. If click but no crank, starter or solenoid or battery cable connection is bad. Start by wiggling cables, looking for any looseness. Next check solenoid and cables. If that doesn't fix it, starter or solenoid may be bad. There may be a fuse in the circuit. Check them out also.
if it cranks but doesn't start, you have a fuel or ignition problem. Good luck. Let us know what you find

How to test a solenoid for a John Deere 115 Lawn Tractor with 42" deck?

First make sure the negative battery cable is making good contact on the frame or what ever part of the mower it is connected to. Make sure both battery cables are clean and not corroded and are tight. Then try to start the mower. If it works, fine. If not then you will bypass the solenoid and see if the starter turns the engine. To bypass the solenoid take a car jumper cable and connect one clamp to the terminal on the solenoid that goes to the battery ( see the diagrams in the links above) Turn the ignition switch to the on position. Take the other end of the same color of the jumper cable (say you'll use the red clamps) and touch the clamp to the other large terminal on the solenoid, which goes to the starter. If the starter turns the engine, then you know the starter is good and that the solenoid is bad. If the starter does not turn the engine then the starter is bad. make sure you DO NOT touch the jumper cable to the starter case or any other ground.

John Deere 425 AWS no start, no nothing???


Sounds more like a bad starter than a bad coil.

A failing coil usually shows up during hot weather. The engine will start and run fine, then when it heats up, it just dies out. After a few minutes, it cranks again. Then the cycle repeats itself.

The ignition module and coil pack are the same part.

Are you sure full voltage is getting to the starter? There is likely a starter solenoid between the ignition key and the starter. These solenoids can be problematic and prevent the full 12 volts from getting to the battery.
