Customer Question

I have a John Deere 320 skidsteer that wont start. There are no obvious problems . Fuel, hydraulic oil, engine oil, coolant, air filter etc. are OK. There are no obvious fuel leaks or oil leaks. There are no diagnostic codes or other alarms present. I've drained the fuel-water seperator and primed the fuel filter. When priming the fuel filter it does not seem to build up much resistance. Lastly it is stuck in a bad spot on a work site and I need to tow it out of the way. Can I bypass the hydraulics to tow it?

Battery OK starter OK Turns motor at 210 rpm but wont start. No such bear on JD320 as a check engine light. It has a trouble shooting menu with diagnostic codes but no codes are showing.It has auto engine shutdown for three conditions; low engine oil pressure, engine coolant overheat and hydraulic oil overtemp, but none of those conditions exist.
