Hello to those of the john deere persuasion. Went out not but 30mins ago to mow my lawn. Filled the gas tank, let her run for a few minutes like I always do. Backed out of the garage, stopped, lowered the deck, and when i went to engage it there was a split second of running then the whole thing dies, deck, engine, and no restarting no dash light nothing. Battery seems good, had 12.5volts steady on it. I am honestly no good at diagnostics. I never know where to start. So any suggestions, ideas, passing thoughts(that are to do with fixin the tractor LOL) are more than welcome.

Disengage deck and try to start. Check safety switches especially the one under the seat. Good Luck, Rick

No dash lights or anything else says fuse blown to me.  Could be the pto clutch is fried & it blew the fuse.

Check your ground on your battery? Negative post. Start there, then move on to fuses and safety switches.

Did this, still no luck. Ground ,Switches and fuses are next on the list. Anyone know where i can obtain  a service manual? There any available here? A wiring diagrahm would probably be useful.

John Deere will not allow posting of their manuals online, no matter how old the tractor!  They will send lawyers to stop us....we know too well here.   Sorry, but that's John Deere Corporate for ya.
