Customer Question
2305 John Deere won't...

2305 John Deere won't start. Battery is good. Key turned to start produces a click sound on the left (likley fuel solnoid. dash lights on . Motor does not turn over.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

OK - J D 2305 won't start. Battery checks out ok, dash lights on when key turned on. Turning key to "start" position only produces a click on the left side, but starter does not engage.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

Thats it.

Don’t have a volt meter but can get one today. The cable to starter may be weak as it was crowded badly. Had to put new cable ends on both positive and ground at battery.
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 4 months ago

Hi

Thank you for that

That is why we need to check what the voltage is

I will wait until you get one let me know
