    John Deere D105 2016 - Rider Won't Move

    Hello,

    Thank you for taking my post today.

    About 1.5 years ago I finally got my first John Deere. It is a D105. It has been great til about 2 - weeks ago when it stopped moving. The acceleration pedal would not push down either. I rolled it up to the driveway and a couple of hours later I had the transmission in my car and headed to the repair shop. They glanced at it and said it was probably bad. I checked and found that there was a recall on these type transmissions but not mine in particular so I paid $400 for a new transmission. Brought it home and popped it in but rear wheels still would not turn. I started looking elsewhere for the problem and an hour later I had the drive belt off. Went to the parts store and bought one of those, popped it in and still no movement. Can someone please tell me what I am overlooking? I have this feeling that it is going to be something simple.

    Thank you so much for the help.

    Is the key way in the axles when you put the wheels on.If they strip out or not there the wheels won't spin.

    Hello,

    The keys look fine sir. I have the tires off of the tractor now. Just cannot seem to be able to get the axle to spin. The belt is kinda loose so I replaced it but the new one is just as loose.

    Thank you for the help.

    If the engine is spinning the drive pulls and the Trans is new and working then the only connection between them is the belt so it must be a belt issue.

    Is the belt tight enough to move the pulley on the transmission? If not have you tried to adjust the tension in the belt so that it isn’t so loose and moves the Trans pulley when you press the pedals to engage it?

    Make sure (if your unit has one) that the free wheeling lever on your Trans is not engaged, many of the older models have a lever or rod you pull to engage which puts the Trans into free wheel mode so you can push and pull the machine without damaging the trans. Make sure your trans isn’t in free wheel mode.

    Was the new trans shipped and delivered dry? Or is it filled properly to the correct level? Check it out, if it isn’t it may not move...

    If you spin the drive pully on the trans, does the axle move? From the sound of it, it may be in free wheel, or neutral. If it is, I hope you kept your old trans, as most likely nothing wrong with it either if this one is good. If if you did not keep it, go back and pick it up. If not in neutral, make them show you it turns the axle before you take another one home.

    Greenie, I'm not familiar with the D105, so may not be able to help, but sure am curious as to what has happened.
    You mention that the drive belt from the engine to transmission is somewhat loose. Also the forward pedal can not be pushed down. Is there any chance the parking brake is stuck partially on, or some part of it's linkage has broken or stuck?
    Can you access JD Parts and look at the belt linkage, brake linkage, and trans. linkage? You may have a broken or missing link or spring.
    Can you describe exactly what happened or what you were doing with the tractor when it first would not move?

    By the way, that's the first trans. I've seen that has a belt on it besides the engine to tranny belt. Wild!

    On the new trans you recieved, there is a large R clip that is used for shipping. Did you remove it? It is there to block the controls from moving. Find it and remove it.

    I did remove it when I installed the transmission. Thanks.

    Many thanks to everyone for the great advice.

    The new belt feels kind of loose but it is the same length as the old belt. Will you please suggest a way to adjust the tension on this belt?

    We put the tractor up on blocks, started it up and pressed the accelerator. I can actually see the main transmission pulley located on the front of the transmission turning when the accelerator pedal is initially pressed however if I keep pressing the accelerator down it stops turning. It is as if there is not enough tension in the drive belt. I checked everywhere online and do not see instructions for tightening the belt. I checked the part number and it is identical to the old belt.

    Best regards and thanks again.
