    Default 1641 Battery light on

    New to the forums - long time lurker - first time poster.

    I have a battery light on when PTO is engaged. Had a new battery last spring. Just started this about 4 weeks ago. I've checked all the obvious. Any help is appreciated.

    Does anyone know where to find a free online service manuals for this tractor? I found a site before, but had a computer crash since and lost the link.

    Thanks

    Just a guess here; PTO is drawing more amps than the charging system can provide. Have battery tested at an auto parts store; it is the easiest thing to rule out. ( may havea bad cell) Use a volt meter on battery and while volt meter is attached ; engage the PTO; does voltage drop off alot? This could be a PTO that only needs adjusted. Hope this will give you a start. Use an amp probe on pto and check amp draw also; check actual draw with manual.

    My 1641 did this last year and I replaced the battery but that didn't help. It turned out to be the voltage regulator.
