Customer Question

I have a ZD331. It's about 18 months old. It was running fine today as I Was cutting grass today and turned it off to pick something up. Now I can't get to start again. No electricity at all. Won't even light up the engine status or gas gauge when I turn key. Plenty of gas and blade is off and steering handles are all the way out. Foot on brake and can get nothing to happen.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !!With nothing showing , as to indicate voltage, check the battery and connections! Also see if the fuse may be blown or loose. Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage, and the voltage to the starter solenoid? Reading should be the same, over 12.5 volts.

I don't have a volt readers. I looked at battery and connection looks good.
No idea where to look for blown fuse.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Should I try and jump the battery. Have never had any issues at all with starting or running this machine.

Try to jump it, that will be a quick test if it is battery!
