I have a John Deere 100series and the engine won’t start or 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.

Last use 2.5 weeks ago ran fine and just replaced battery.

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

I unplugged the seat , checked oil and filter.

Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! I will try my best to help!

Do you get any click at the solenoid when turning key to start? If you jump the two cables on the starter solenoid, will the engine spin? This is a quick test, of battery, cables and starter.

No click no nothing. No noise at all. Just purchased a new the other day.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Do you have a voltmeter to check the new battery's voltage?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. I purchased from autozone . So assuming it’s good.?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

May be dead if the charging system hasn't been working if battery voltage drops below 12 volts, the fuel solenoid kills the engine and it will not restart.
