  1. 2003 Diesel 4x6 won't start

    Gator Lighting, Stereo and Electrical
    Hi Folks, I have a 2003 Gator4x6 diesel that won't start. I went through months of weak starts, even with a new battery, now zero. The parts are cheap so I replaced the relay to the solenoid signal cable and the ignition switch. The starter/solenoid work great out of the gator. There is no...
  2. Bad Starter Solenoid

    Gator General Discussion
    I have a 2008 John Deere 6x4 diesel M-gator A1. The starter solenoid has been clicking and not starting. To make a long story short, I replaced the solenoid, the starter, and the batteries.

  6. JD diesel gator fuel cutoff solenoid not pull in

    Gator General Discussion
    Hi All, My fuel cutoff solenoid will not pull in, but if I manually push it in with the key on it will stay in. I do have voltage on the red wire with key on, but no voltage on white wire when key in start position. Thought it was the relay on the right side frame, whic i changed, but that...
