I left my Kubota B7510 on the grass one humid summer night. Wouldn't start in the morning. Battery seems fine. During attempted ignition, after the glowplugs warm and I turn the key to start, all I get is a click. But no starter turning. I checked fuses; all good. Wires and connections look good. Levers all in the correct places. Any suggestions for next-step remedies?

I'd be grateful for any thoughts.

Best...

Leaving it out certainly shouldn't change it's starting ability especially on a warm humid nite. Now if it was about four months from now and left out here in central NY then you might have a problem but I'd still doubt it.

I would wonder where the click is coming from, just the thoughts of the glow plug lite coming on still doesn't say that the battery connections is up to snuff enough to make it crank over. ....

Cpeacock,

Art White is most likely correct.

If you haven't done any maintenance on your battery connections in a while, I highly suggest that you take your battery connections loose, clean the terminals and the wire connectors, and then put things back together.

You have some power going to the starter solenoid, but likely not enough power to engage the starter motor. This is usually due to a bad connection at the battery, the ground wire, or possibly even a loose connection on the starter solenoid.

Definitely pull the cables off the battery terminals and brush the connections, wash with baking soda, grease and put back on. Sounds like the starter solenoid is not pulling in (the click) could be not enough juice or binding solenoid lever. I'd attach jumper cables from your car and see of that works after cleaning all connections.

On an old wheel horse Garden Tractor I used to take a bar and jiggle the solenoid pull in lever to get it free ( I was lucky it was accessible ;-)). ....

Forgive me for the tardy reply. It turned out to be a broken clutch switch (and a broken multimeter, but that's another story). How it ran for so many days on even ground with a broken clutch switch will remain a mystery.

Thanks, folks, for your suggestions. I'm learnin'... ....
