I have a John Deere...
I have a John Deere 6420 cab MFWD w/o IVT transmission. I've had battery issues with it having had to put the charger on but the battery would not hold charge so yesterday I replaced the battery. Now I seem to have electrical power everywhere but the tractor does not crank. Not even a clicking. All behind the seat have been checked. The tractor is in neutral and PARK. Both 80 amp fuses up by the battery check out OK. Is there another electrical breaker or fuse that could be the issue? Any other things to check? The tractor has not cranked with the new battery and the snow is getting deep.

Customer: All the fuses inc. the starter one had already been checked and were good.
Curtis B. :

Do you have a voltmeter to check ? The power all comes from the starter solenoids posiitve post. With loss of voltage to the dash area, it has to be a break somewhere.
