My friend has a JD 320. The ignition module fried, bought another one off ebay and it still isn't firing. Need someone with a JDMule 2510, LX178, LX188, LX279, LX289, 285, 320, 345, 425, GX345, F725, or F911. These models use the same ignition module. I'd like someone 'anyone' to take my module, plug it into their tractor and see if it starts? We've been through the diagram found no other issues and have no way of testing the ignition module...the JD dealer says they'd plug it into another tractor but want $$$ and the whole tractor to test the ignition module. I know it's going out on a limb but I have no one near that has any of these models...SO PLEASE HELP if you can. Just take my module, 2 wires and a ground hooked up start your engine...actually pretty simple...

Anyone?

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim. I can't help you with this but hopefully there will be someone who will if you give it some time. That's the gotcha with those modules. They are pretty much a replace if suspect scenario when troubleshooting. I wonder if that module will work on any other tractors that you could get access to. If anyone has any more definitive troubleshooting advice hopefully they will step forward.

I would think there would have to be a way to test it in some fashion. Even if you could find someone with a known good module and have them get some readings off of it with an ohm meter.

Just wondering what happened to the original one ? Does it look melted or apparent damage ? Any possibility that it's not getting the correct signal from the pick-up ? Good luck and keep us posted . Al

There are 2 issues...the first one had a 'transistor' pop, ask me how I know...I took it apart, I tried to replace the transistor but cannot find the proper one in our marketplace...Second you cannot get readings from it, and there are no schematics for it...so without a schematic you cannot get relative values, also I contacted 2 different JD dealers and they indicated the 'only' way to test this is to plug it into a known good unit...and BTW a new one is $275

First off we have some conflicting info...

What is the complete model number? X320 (that is the only 320 I could find out there)

If that is the correct model number then jdparts.com gives this info on the tractor (don't know if it will help or not)
x320 MP38898________UN15NOV06.jpg


Part numbers to go along with the items:

x320 ignit parts.jpg

Are you sure it is an ignition module? I could not find it on the parts list. Got a part number?
