I have a john deere...
I have a john deere 4610 tractor. It has run perfectly up until now. 650 hours on it. I parked it yesterday and now it won't start. It won't turn over. When I turn the key the dash lights turn on and I think I hear the fuel solenoid click on. It was due for a new battery, so I changed it out. So the battery is strong. I need some help figuring out what is wrong with it.

Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. With a test light test for power to the starter solenoid small S terminal wire while the IGN switch is in the cranking position. If there is power there and all your connections between the battery and starter are good with a new battery, there is a problem with your starter solenoid and starter. If there is no power there the problem is between the IGN switch and starter. Check all fuses and relays including power in and out of the IGN switch. Let me know

Hi Dan. It was too cold here to work yesterday. Today I went ahead and took off the starter just to be sure there wasn't a problem. I had it tested and it spun up just fine. I put it back on and used test light on the white wire and got nothing. I went back to the ignition switch to begin tracing it out and I had power coming off the ignition switch when I turned it to the start position. From there according to the schematic it says it goes to f5 fuse. that checks out fine. Now I am looking for the neutral switch. I'm having trouble locating it but power should flow from there through the K2 start relay then through to the white wire. If you have any idea where the electrical contacts are for the nuetral switch I would appreciate it.Oh yeah, my seat switch has been giving me trouble for a while. Bare wire showing on the leads going to it. So I just cut it and tied the two leads together. That should make it permanently closed and a non-issue correct?

Hi Barry, Yes connecting the two wires will complete the circuit for the safety switch for test purposes as long as there is no other damage in the wiring. Here is the parts diagram and descriptions.

Check all your fuses and the safety switch harness and connectors. the diagram should help identifying your switches and relays.
