 Electrically Dead NH 1530

After changing battery in my New Holland 1530, I tried to start it and it gave one quick surge then went completely dead electrically.

I checked the fuses in the panel on the right side of the firewall as well as the single fuse in the connector on the left side. Anyone have any ideas?

Also, after checking the fuses on the right side, I noticed some blank spaces. I think I got them back in correctly, but not sure. Anyone know which ones are needed and what amps?

Thanks,
Grass growin' I ain't mowin'

Sounds too simple- are you absolutely sure that the leads on the new battery are tight?

Also, what was the problem you were having with your old battery?

You might double check the ground. If the ground is disconnected or loose everything would be dead. It's also not unheard of for a new battery to be bad so measure the battery voltage across the battery. If it's good, measure it again while trying to crank it over. If it drops very far the battery is probably bad or way undercharged. Have you tried to jump it?

I was on the way out when I had the problem, so couldn't try to jump it. Connections are tight. I didn't even get any lights on the console after it went dead. I'll recheck the connections tomorrow. I found a parts list on line and didn't see any more hidden fuses.

Old battery was simply old.

I've had a similar things happen on my TC33D. Turns out I was bumping the key to OFF with my knee. D-u-h!

Seriously though, my fue holder was caked ful of dust and the fuses were corroded. Took all of them out, cleaned the holder and the fues and works now.

Also the fuse on the left, if it's like mine, kept blowing. Now I use a small hair pin/hitch pin as a jumper. Since I leave it sitting out on jobs, I'll remove the pin as a extra security against someone driving it away. You might want to try the jumper idea---mine gets quite warm even the way it is being solid steel--let alone being a fuse.

Again I keep thinking "too simple"- like earthworks knee comment. I have a feeling when you figure this one out your not going to want to brag about it- but hopefully it is a laughing matter.

Believe me, I know I am going to feel like no rocket scientist when I figure this out. To think that about 40 years ago I used to actually fool around with my own cars. Seems I forgot all I ever knew. What you don't use, well, you know.


Initially when it went dead, even instrument cluster was dead. After sitting over night, it woke up. Another try ended up dead again. After a while, the lights came back.
After church today, it jump started, but as soon as I disconnect cables, she dies. Bad alternator and bad battery?

By the way guys, I appreciate the help.

I would be looking for something that might have killed your last battery and is giving you the problem now. I like both those paths you suggested- could you take the battery off the vehicle you used for the jump start to see if it will run the tractor for a little bit?

An easy test for a alternator being bad (on a gas engine anyway) is disconnect the battery while the engine is running. If it quits, the alt. is bad.
