I recently bought this tractor and previous owner claimed battery was shot. I put a brand new battery on it and it wanted to start for a second then went completely dead. I charged the battery for a couple of hours to make sure that wasn't the issue. Now when I hook up the battery I get nothing. No lights on the dashboard and obviously, no cranking either. I'm pretty handy with cars but don't know much about these mowers.

Can someone point me in the direction of a fuse or something that's responsible for power/cutting power after the batter?

Thanks!

I would check the condition of the cables for a bad connection first. Since you said no lights or anything now that tells me maybe the Ground Cable is messed up where it bolts to the frame. Follow the big positive cable around and look for heated or corroded connections. Maybe a fuse where the smaller wires hook to it for power behind the dash that work the solenoid to spin the starter with when you turn the key?

I picked up a 325 this fall that had similar indications. Found a blown 10 Amp fuse in the block under the hood.

I have a JD GT245 and it has two 15 amp fuses in the circuit board under dash. Also has a red and green indicator light on the board. As said before, check your connections first. Then pull fuses, check their continuity. :greentractorride:

Wanted to follow up on this thread.

I ended up pulling both of the fuses under the dash and checking them. Neither were blown, however; once I pulled and plugged them both in, I once again had power!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

There is a white corrosion that forms on some electrical parts.Clean off the fuses and where they connect the best you can they make brass wire brushes that are the size of a tooth brush and add some dielectric grease to them.
