Do you get any power from battery to key? Check the main fuse at the battery cable. See link below.

OK, let me opt out, and see if Kevin is around. Sorry.

Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

what transmission does this tractor have in it John?

Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

if you can supply me with that info I can send you the test points for the neutral start switch and relay. the neural start switch is a 2 wire switch located on top of the transmission to the rear just forward of the rear axles. it may be worth testing continuity on that switch. another try would be switching the neutral start relay (K11A) located under the dash right hand side above the brake peddles. it will be the relay to the left

it has a power reverser tran
Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

ok with a powrReverser the neutral switch is not where I said. do you have an email or fax I can send info to? I suspect that you have a relay not latching or your FNR lever has failed

Ivan is it possible the code is EHM MrCE?

if so that would be your shut off solenoid playing games with you

resistance on that coil should be 15-20 ohms and is located in a weird place. looks like r/h side of tractor mid way. if you provide an email I can send you a location pic

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok got it
Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

don't get hung up on wire schematics just yet. do the pin out test on the relay and the FNR circuit. I'm pretty sure from past experences you will find the problem to be one or the other

Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

hey john! any luck?

Expert:  John Oliver replied 1 year ago.

I will be in the office until noon new York time.... if you have a need for more info
