Customer Question
I have a...

I have a L3130 I was driving and it just died and will not turn over, the Mid PTO Light came on and I do not have one

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

L3130 I would have to go look for Ser #, Rear PTO light goes off and on when you move the switch, if in neutral and Park Brake set eliminates seat switch, I have not looked at fuses

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

I do not understand the Mid - PTO light when I do not have one, is their a reset for the system

No reset! But do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage? Battery has to be over 12.5 volts for start. Does the glow plug light come on?

12.73 Volts; Ser #55578
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

Does it drop when key is turned to start? Are the glow plug coming on?

Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Glow plug normal on then off; Park Brake set, tractor in neutral, pto off; mid PTO light on; not even a click of a solenoid.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

Work the mid pto lever and see if you can get the light to go out! That is blocking the start circuit.

I do not have one
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
I have not had the mid-PTO light before
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

There may be a switch. and if the tractor thinks the pto is on, you get no start.

Just a thought, I was driving the tractor when it just died, the mid PTO should not have made any difference, it would be like using it.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

I agree, but pto switch will keep it from restarting. If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and jump the cable terminal to the switch terminal, will the engine spin?

I looked there is only a hole where tne mid - PTO should be
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
I will try your other suggestion
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

I would be looking at the linkage under the control lever, from the regular pto, and next to it would be mid mount switch.

Customer reply replied 27 days ago
If I had a mid -PTO it would be down by my right heel, the rear PTO at the back of the seat on the right
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

Yes, but the switch is on the linkage,

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
There is not linkage and I do not see a switch
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
I am going to have to leave it for a few hours we have company coming for coffee
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

If you follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid and jump the cable terminal to the switch terminal, will the engine spin?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
I followed the positive, but I am having problem finding the place to jump too, It is different from what I am use to looking at
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
But that does not explain why, when I was driving it, that it just shut down, that does not involve the PTO switch or starter.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

It will be a single wire small terminal.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

I'm trying to determine if the battery has enough voltage to spin the engine.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
It should at 12.73
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 27 days ago

It may, but the test is whether it does!
