Do you have battery voltage above 12.5 volts?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

If you follow the battery cable to the starter solenoid, and jump from the posiitve cable terminal to the small switch terminal, will engine spin? This is quick test of battery, cables and starter.

What is battery voltage with meter?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
its getting 11.5 volts from ignition switch to solenoid and its just spinning not in gauging the flywheel I installed a new starter and it makes the same sound it made me think it was turning the flywheel but not the engine like key is shear off the flywheel.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Try jumper cables to get battery voltage up. 11.5 volts is not enough to engage the starter.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok what is the preferred voltage
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I have put my jumper box and hooked up my truck to the battery and it still does what I have described
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am not getting 12v from the solenoid to the ignition switch

since I bought this thing new it has had this problem I took it to the dealership and they kept it 3 months could not fix it and then had the audacity to charge me 300 dollars so I am leery of people
Customer reply replied 2 years ago

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

You need a new dealer! Unacceptable!

Your telling me
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Check cables and connections to the starter, Has to be a reason full voltage is being lost.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
This is the only thing I have not replaced new. The positive with all the other wires has 12.5 going from the battery to the starter.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Can the ground wire cause us to lose voltage to the started do to it being the ground? I have taken them off and cleaned the ends well with a wire brush and cleaner but it has not helped
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

What is battery voltage measured? Fully charged would be over 13 volts.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
12.5 exactly is all this battery has it is New Holland's and they say nothing is wrong with it so they gave us a new one voltage is still the same 12.5
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am losing voltage big time somewhere any idea's
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

What does your truck battery show? Take jumpers straight from truck battery to the starter and engine block, to see if starter works.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok this may mean nothing but my wife is anal every since we got this tractor when you are turning on the ignition keep and wait for the glow plug light to go out to even get it to hit you have to move that neutral handle around to get the starter to catch (for what it is worth)
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Ok he has not done that he has only but them to the battery he went outside to do that for you
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

That would keep starter from doing anything, not let it motor and not engage the flywheel.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
hmm so what could we do about that I told him all these years that was not right
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there a switch under there or a fuse link or does it need an alignment?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Neutral switch needs replacement!

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok I can understand that, the handle has always been sloppy is there a way to tighten it up so that we do not have to go through this any longer moving it around to start the tractor
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

It may have loose bolts or could have excessive clearance, just look for the play and see.

He just came in and said he did what you asked hooked the truck directly to the solenoid and nothing
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
