Question and Answers

Q:

PGT 9000 28 hp garden tractor has loud buzzing after shut down.

A:

Thank you for your question on the tractor battery dead and a noise from the tractor with the ignition key in the off position.

It is possible that you have two problems now with the tractor ignition.

If this tractor is under two years old then I would have service come to repair this tractor under warranty.

Make sure you have disconnected the battery from the tractor battery terminal and charge the battery.

It is possible that when you turned the tractor ignition switch to the off position it jumped 12 volts to the Electronic Fuel Management system and damaged the computer.

Then locate the six pin wire harness that goes from the tractor harness to the engine wire harness and unplug it.

Then check to see if the 20 amp fuse is blown.

With a good fuse in the circuit get on the tractor and push the clutch and turn the key to the start position.

If the fuse blows the wire harness is bad on the tractor.

If it is not blown then it may be the Electronic Fuel Management System on the side of the engine that may have failed and the internal rectifier has shorted and killed the battery. This may be where the buzzing sound was coming from.

Because of the complex ignitions system on this tractor I would suggest at this time to have a service technician come and check the electrical system on this tractor.

Please let me know what the technician found to be the problem.

Thank you for the update on the tractor. If the ignition switch shorted internally it can cause all kinds of problems so I hope he also ordered an ignition switch. The clue was that it tried to start when the battery terminal was hooked up. Please let me know what the final resolution is with this tractor. Thank you. Sam A.
