Hello, I have been trying to locate a complete wiring diagram for the XUV 560S4.
I bought the Gator brand new in 2016 and has a little over 100hrs.
I was using the Gator a couple days ago to drag my field and came over to my gate and turned off the Gator, because I needed to do some stuff with my tractor.
It cranked for a second and then would not even crank over, so I had to drag it over to my barn.
So here are a few things that I have tried.
-Checked the fuses, they are good.
-checked the battery make sure it was charged and holding charge and it was, but nothing.
-I hooked up another battery just to try and still nothing.
-I checked the spark plugs and cleaned them off and nothing.
-I tried a screwdriver on the solenoid and barely sparked, but nothing.

Honestly I am stump and do not know what it could be.
I just cannot find any diagram to show me what colors lead to what and any help would be very grateful. I would like to do it myself and not take it to the dealership.

Those of us who have Gators for a while tend to get the JD technical manual. It has all the wiring diagrams, service procedures, etc. It's got step by step on most everything. That said, the CD is on eBay for $147 which is a bit steep. However, if you're going to hand on to that model for a while, it's still a good investment.

I will have to check that out and I know that would be helpful. I need to pick one of those up for my JD 3032E and JD Z730M, but I was hoping that I could get some quick help before taking it into the dealership.

UPDATE: So, I thought that I would charge the battery again and see if anything changed.
Now the starter or solenoid sounds like a machine gun going off when you go to try to start it.
I'm guessing that it probably is the solenoid or starter needing replaced is what my problem is.

Clicking like a machine gun is generally the battery.
Replace it if its below 12,4 to 12 volts at full charge after 30 minutes from the charger

It does not crank over. See I heard that if it sounds like a machine gun, it is the starter or solenoid, but do not know.

In this case i would check the battery aswell before replacing the starter.
Actually 90% of the time if i hear rapid clicking its the battery not the starter.

Its an easy check to do and if its not the starter it will save you a lot of money.

Thats just how proper diagnosing works, too many people spend 300 dollars on parts they do not even know they need

UPDATE: I had an old timer tell me to try to jump off my gator with my diesel or any car and see what happens, if it starts up, then it is the battery. So, I jumped it and it started right up, so went by John Deere and picked up a new battery and she is starting up perfect now.

yeap, it ended up being the battery, just sad that they do not last very long. i'm planning on getting a battery charger/maintainer for the gator and probably my JD 3032E and Z730M.
