I have a John Deer D105 riding tractor. I thought the battery may have died and tried a new one with no luck. It clicks over for a second but the engine doesnt turn. I can jump the tractor off my car battery and it starts.

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

thanks

When you jump it off, do you go straight to your starter to fire it up? If so your solenoid is probably bad or you have a bad connection at the battery.

All my connections are tight, my positive termial bolt and nut are pretty corroded, I am going to clean that up, but from everything I have researched and the advice here, it looks like the solenoid.

Thanks, will let you know how it turns out

Corroded positive cable? BINGO.

Clean that off, use a battery cleaning brush.

And some Baking soda water mixture, careful do not splash this stuff about, it mixed with the acid corrosion will wreak havoc on your clothing, eyes VERY IMPORTANT, and hands.
