    Default L130 battery issue

    Hey,
    I recently purchased a larger property that came with a John Deere L110 and L130 (one used as a lawn mower and the other used as a snow remover).

    The lawn mower (L130) doesn't seem to charge the battery while running and just drains it. I have to jump start the lawn mower every time I want to get it going, I've even switched batteries with the L110 (which i'm quite sure has a decent battery) but I still need to jump start the lawn mower to get it going.

    Any ideas on what the issue could be?

    Take the battery in for a test, and likely will need to buy a new one. Maybe even for both.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I guess I should give that a go when it stops raining and give it another go with a fresh battery from the store.

    I was wondering, how long do the batteries last for usually? We purchased one of the batteries three years ago.

    On my L130 I have to replace the battery every two or three years, these small batteries don't last long. I use NAPA batteries that are about $30 bucks so figure 10 to 12 bucks a year more or less. You may find a battery that lasts longer but I doubt it would be cost effective.

    You should be able to test your battery at no cost, also if you have a test meter you could check the voltage to see if it is charging or not.

    Make sure you have a good battery. while running check the voltage at the battery terminals. should be 13 to 14.5 volts. if not the charging system is not working and is most likely a bad voltage regulator which should look a small square box on the side of the engine with 3 wires coming out of it. two may be yellow in color.
