What generates hours on a Deere 4400 tractor hour meter?

Customer Question

What generates hours on a John Deere 4400 tractor hour meter? Mine stopped working so I had it replaced now it started over at 0. I want to generate hours up to where it should be. If I just power up the accessories it doesn't add hours. If you start the tractor then the hour glass flashes meaning hours are accumulating. Obviously I don't want to leave it running to accumulate hours. Is there a way?

you can just connect to a battery until you generate the hours you want then connect it back to the tractor wiring harness.
