    2320 Rear accesory power problem

    Hi, I added 2 LEDs on my 2320 that are powered by the extra power wires at the rear of the tractor. All of a sudden, neither of them are working.
    I looked at all the fuses located behind the muffler on the left side of the firewall and those are all good.
    Is there another fuse panel that feeds the rear wires? I can't find anything in the shop manual.
    Thanks for any suggestions. By the way, I'm terrible at anything electrical, so make sure you dumb it down for me.
    Can take photos tonight if needed.

    Do you have a volt meter or multimeter available? It's somewhat difficult to do much troubleshooting without one. The first thing I would check is if you have 12VDC at the connectors where you have the work lights plugged in.

    Check those bullet connectors behind the seat. Mine weren't making good contact, so I cleaned them a little and put some dielectric grease in them and that cured it.

    If you have a multimeter, you need to check continuity on the fuses. They can fail without it being obvious, and you can spend days trying to track down something that's right in front of you. If you don't, they aren't expensive, try replacing them. If that works, throw the old ones out. If it doesn't, you have some spares on hand for the future.

    I can borrow a multimeter from work and also try cleaning those bullet connectors if I do have power.

    Some of those wires back there are controlled by the light switch and not by all positions of the switch.

    Do you have a Harbor Freight nearby? You can get a digital multimeter for $6.00 that will do everything you need. I know... it's not a Fluke. I have a Fluke and they are top notch but I also have had a $6.00 HF meter for many years that I keep down in the equipment shed for checking things and it has worked just fine.

    Everyone should have a multimeter of some kind in their tool box.

    I did bring a multimeter home but didn't get a chance to test it.
    I do think it's an issue w/ the bullet connectors though because I can get one light to flicker when I move the connector.
    I need to take the wire loom and tape off so I can pull the connector apart and check.
    Hope to do that this week.
    Thanks for the help. Will post my final outcome.
