So as I was moving it today after washing at 1/2 throttle the low oil pressure light flashed, amber warning came on and it went into safe mode. Checked oil level its fine. It has happened at all speeds, even full throttle. Guess I'll be calling the dealer Tuesday. Not happy.
First time mowing yesterday. With engine speed in the lower part of the "Best cut zone", the Caution indicator came on 2-3 times, Engine speed went to a low idle, no other indicators on. Turned the mower off, check engine oil, bagger, transaxle fluid level, all good. Restarted would run fine for a few minutes the happen again. Then I put it to full throttle and it never happened again. The grass was not tall or heavy and was not bogging down the engine but maybe an occasional RPM dip. I wasn't using cruise control. I was using the Powerflow.
- What safety system was kicking in? Mowing with engine speed too low? What safety systems are there?
- Can I only mow at max rpm? Doesn't make since.
- Anyone have a link to how the "EFI brain" works?
Thanks in advance.
update, I read the Kawasaki manual and it says either overheating or "ECU" problem. No way it overheated in 5 minutes of running. Maybe JD has additional programming?
