The Gator has no fuses, but Deere puts three fusible links in the system on the wires coming off the posiitve side of the starter solenoid, the same terminal the posiitve battery cable goes to. The voltage for the keyswitch has to come from these wires. Locate the fusible links and check them for continuity. They will look like fuses soldered in the wires. You can use a jumper wire to bypass and test.
It will have a brake switch, that has to make for starter to work. It will be on the brake linkage. Look at switch and see if the brake is pushing it when you try to start?
You don't have to press brake for start?
6X4 is not full model number. Is this TX. HS, or ???? It had a plate riveted to the frame when it was new.
Don't know location. Number 8 shows to be two stop switches, this is off a Worksite gator, it also has a start relay, # ***** do you find this relay? Does it have voltage to it?
Does the relay click when you turn the key to start?
Look at the relay, it will have a schematic on the side of it. Locate the connections that relay should make, and use a jumper wire to see if it will engage the starter. You will make the connection in the relay plug in.
Not sure without having it in my hand!
no. try jumper from 87 to 87a in the plug.
I see question is still open, did you find problem?
