    Unhappy 1023e will not start tonight

    Here is a quick video of what I happens when I try to start her up. Below is a 10 second video I shot when trying to start her.

    Any ideas welcome. https://www.dropbox.com/s/h2ez6i951t...%20PM.mov?dl=0

    Put a meter on the battery terminals and watch it while you try to start the tractor, or pull your battery out and have it load tested.

    What should I be looking for the meter to tell me? What am I looking for?

    At rest, with the key off it should show 12-14 volts. While you're turning the key to the start position and the engine is trying to turn over for that split second, see how low it drops. It shouldn't go below 8-9 volts. I suspect your battery has failed internally, it is likely to drop to 3-5 volts.

    If your battery has gone bad you will see a big drop from 12 volts. If the voltage does not drop below maybe 9.5 - 10 then there is some other issue.

    Agreed, sounds like a battery issue.

    I also suspect you have a bad battery. You may want to just remove it and take it into the local autozone, sears or any automotive store that can load test the battery. Been doing this for awhile and the sounds like the battery voltage is falling below the needed reference 5V needed to run the computer controls.

    Good luck.........

    Okay so here are the test results. Battery is showing 10.5v when I attach the meter. When I turn the ignition it drops to for a second to 7.5 then stabilizes at 9.5v.

    Thoughts on next steps?

    Were you guys able to watch the quick video? Not sure if the instrument light pattern tells anything.

    Really appreciate the help.

    Saw the video, think you have a bad battery. If it's dropping to 7.5, it's probably junk. You can pull it out and have it load tested at an auto parts store to double check, but if it were mine I would be replacing the battery.
