I have a Deere GT 275 that wont start. It was running and
It was running and when shut off, would not restart. the starter will not engage. the lights dim but nothing happens, no clicks. none of the safety devices have been over ridden. This has been happening intermittently, and if you tried a few times the starter would engage and start. Now the starter will not engage, will not activate the solenoid, just draw a load and dim the panel lights when the key is turned. I also found a wire that had overheated to an aluminum finned device hidden behind the dashboard. what is this device? I took the starter in to have it checked and putting current to it, it kicks in and turns. Last fall the battery light started coming on intermittently and now stays on whenever the engine is running but the battery never seems discharged and there is always power to start the engine, even after sitting for the winter. Why wont it start? What do I look for? Is the voltage regulator the cause? will the regulator keep it from starting? … read more
