Customer Question

I have a 2006 5525 tractor, when trying to start it blows the F1-20amp fuse, what would cause this?

F1 fuse is for ignition switch.?? Does fuse blow as soon as switch is turned on, or when key is turned to start?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If it blows as soon as key is turned on try removing the alternator plug, as it comes on when switch is turned on. It can be a bad keyswitch, but I would check the accessories first!

as soon as you turn it on

Try unplugging the alternator, and then the fuel shutoff solenoid. Both power up when key is turned on.

where is the fuel shutoff solenoid located?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

At the injection pump or you can remove the fuse at the fuse panel!

unplugged both and still blows fuse

It may be the switch itself!

! I can't get Deere to load, I will keep trying.

I tried the switch and it was OK, went to the my John Deere dealer and they suggested I replace the temperature sensor and it fixed the problem.
Since you did not solve the issue how do I get a refund?
