2008 John deere 790 4X4...
2008 John deere 790 4X4, 28 hp. diesel. Battery was flat so jumped it.... tractor started right up. Tractor died soon after removing jumper cables. Installed new replacement battery and tractor cranks and cranks but will not start. I can hear the clicking and all instrument lights seem to be working.

Is there a re-set procedure needed after removing and replacing the battery?

Thanx, [email protected]

koboma :

Unit has fuel shutoff solenoid, check it for power, You could have blown fuse and now the solenoid is not retracting and opening the fuel.

koboma :

If it has power, it should be working. Maybe burned up? If you remove it engine should fire, but will have to re-insert it to kill the engine.

koboma :

Let me know. Thank you.
