    Default TC30 won't crank over

    I am having problems getting my TC30 to start...yeah it won't. Glow plugs work, lights illuminate, etc., but won't turn over when I turn the key. Confirmed that tractor is in neutral, park brake set. I checked the seat safety switch by using a jumper wire to bypass the seat switch and it still doesn't turn over. What should I check next? Thanks for your help!

    Use a test light to make sure that power is going to the starter. Should be the pink wire if I remember correctly.

    I replaced an ignition switch 3 years ago...
    Check your battery...
    I replaced mine 2 years ago and it was deader than a hammer last month...
    It had an 18 month replacement warranty on a commercial battery...
    I replaced it with a Wal Mart 84 month warranty battery...
    I was surprised that it went out so fast...

    I would read through the following post as I would suspect your ignition switch or blown fuse:

    Before you go tossing parts at it, test to see if you have power to the starter like I said and work your way back from there. Electrical issues aren't tough to diagnose...you just need to have a plan for it. Tossin gpart at it is fine if you've got deep pockets......I don't though. lol

    Thanks to all who replied! I really feel stupid...I found that somehow the PTO lever had been engaged...thus no crank when I turned the key. Once I disengaged the PTO lever, "Ole Blue" fired off just like always! Thanks again to the helpful community here on TBN!

    Always nice to hear when a fix is free and easy.
    The forums are a great place to find information....but also a great place to find speculation. Only you can determine the real problems with your tractor. We're here to help you find the correct way to do it.
