    D110 hour meter question

    Im hoping someone can tell me if the hour meter is suppose to be on all the time, i went out to cut the grass last week, and the battery was dead,

    so i had a neighbor with cables help me get it going, its a 2012 D110 from Lowes, than after mowing the grass, i noticed the hour meter is still on, even

    after i turn the motor off and remove the key... is that normal?? is the hour meter suppose to remain on 24/7 with the key in the off position, i know,

    it probably doesnt draw alot of juice, but i thought that was kinda odd,

    thanks if anyone knows the answer to this, i would really appreciate it

    Yes.. always on, has its own internal battery. And if you unplug it, your engine will turn over but wont start.. it cuts the spark. Only counts time when the engine is running. So if you leave the key on, it will not run the hours up.

    This all came about when the D series was introduced. (Among others)They offered a 2 yr warranty or 120 hrs, whichever came first. So to be proactive, they made the meter only count time while engine was running. And if you wanted to try and be smart and unplug the meter.. guess what.. no worky. Dont worry.. we scratched our heads at the dealership too when the first models arrived!

    The new D series may be different, but my L WILL count time with the key on even if the motor is NOT running...

    It's normal for the meter to always be "on", I have several others I have installed in other small motors and they're always on.
