    3038E starting issue

    I just recently replaced my dash panel and now when I turn the key to the ON position I hear the initial click but now the relay continues to click about every second it clicks and when I turn the key to Crank it try’s to crank at the same rate the relay is clicking. I changed the relay out with a new one and still the same problem. Has anyone had an issue like this before. I really need my tractor going as it has finally dried up and I need to finish my driveway out.

    I haven’t tested it but I did run jumper cables to it from a excavator. Did the same thing.

    It could still be the battery terminal connections and/or battery cables or ground connections. Assuming of course that you just clamped the jumper cables onto the cable clamps.

    I’ll have to see if I can get it load tested. It’s not an old battery. I replaced it the same time I did the panel toward the end of last year. The cables are tight on the posts.

    The cables being tight does not mean the connections are clean.

    Typically whenever you have a problem that even remotely could be a battery problem it pays to check all the connections. Start by removing the cables and cleaning both the battery terminals and inside the cable clamps. Next check the connections at the other end of the ground cable and positive cable.

    Check the voltage at the battery during cranking. A surefire test to ensure everything is okay is to attach a voltmeter to the other end of the positive cable and ground. Crank the engine. If the voltage stays around 10 volts or higher during cranking (or attempting to crank) then chances are the battery is good and your getting good voltage to the starter.

    Beings how it sounds like you changed out the dash 3-4 months ago, did the tractor ever start after the dash swap?

    Yes sir I used it after the dash swap. No issues. It’s been sitting for a few months now without being cranked. I will check connections. Also will try the volt meter at the battery during cranking.

    Voltage drops to around 8.5 during cranking. Wish I could post a video.
