Craftsman LT 2000 Mower

Please Help!

I have a Craftsman LT 2000 mower that I have already replaced the batter. The mower is not charging the battery and the new battery is dead. What part(s) do I need to replace to have the mower start charging the battery again?

Thanks

Well I don't mean to be jumping in here perhaps out of line but you need to post the engine make and model numbers as engine people may not necessarily know what engine an LT 2000 has on it.

IF it has a fuse, that might be a start.

True, there are many different makes and models of engines on LT2000 mowers. The answer depends on additional info.

Sorry, new to all this.

The engine is a Briggs and Stratton 18.5 HP OHV.

I have been able to jump the mower to get it to run and when the new battery was put in, it ran several times before now not turning over.

Thanks for any help.

Ok, on that engine, there will be 2 wires coming out from under the flywheel near the starter that go to one small white rectangular connector. Check each of these for voltage with the engine running at full throttle. The red wire should have 13+ DC volts, the white wire isn't so critical, it's just for lights, but will register on the AC scale. Post the results and we'll go to the next step depending on what you find.
