Our JD4300 had issues over the winter where it would crank but not start. Now it will not crank at all. To resolve the crank but no start issue, we have replaced the fuel solenoid. Cleaning it worked one time, but then it stopped clicking. We have fully charged the battery, checked the block ground and traced all the wiring. We can find no corrosion. The safety under the seat appears operational. We have read about the thermistor causing starting issues. Could it cause the engine not to crank? We have a new one, but can not determine how to get the old one out. Any suggestions on how to remove it? Do you have to cut the wires and then crimp or solder the new one on? Any other ideas, before we pay an arm and a leg for the local dealer to service it?

Check pto lever check connections under tractor check neutral switch usually wiggle shift lever if std if hydro check foot pedals. You might try checking fuses and unplug and replug all relay fuses. ....

Thanks Harvey.

Reseating all the fuses seems to have done the trick. It has now started a couple of times successfully.

Thanks again. ....

my JD4600 didn't want to start- I replace fuel solinond (spelling?) Next I replaced the fuel pump- it appears that worked. ONE note: I don't know why but the first time running it with new fuel pump- it ran 2 hours. I turned it off- had lunch- came back next day -it didn't start... I when through each fuel line to check if it was getting fuel- they where- expect at base of fuel injection pump...??? Well, I ended up taking the fuel pump back off and re installing it to be sure it was done correctly. It started right up. FYI- I haven't started it since then- but I feel the pump was not "sitting" firmly. time will tell. ....
