New Holland T1530 tractor won't start

Just put a new battery in it two weeks ago and it ran great. Used it last weekend to work on the driveway after all the ran we had. Now it won't even turn over. Thoughts?

Start at the basics.
Check all the connections, battery, starter, solenoid.
100% sure the battery's charged?

Checked the voltage with a multimeter, showed 12.5 volts. Connections look good.

Does it do anything when you try to start it? Click or make noise? Have you checked fuses?

Measure the voltage across the coil of the solenoid when trying to start. If it stays zero start checking all the stuff in the primary circuit..operator presence sensors and other safeties, ignition switch, etc. If it has a low oil shutdown check the oil level.

If you have 12 volts at the solenoid but it's not pulling in, it may be a bad solenoid.

It makes no noise at all. I'm not very proficient with a multimeter. Do you mean the starter solenoid? What's a primary circuit?

No lights come on? The battery connectins "look" good... but have you checked them to be sure they are actually making connection? You can't tell by looking.

12.5 is a little low for a full charged battery should be 13 volts, You need to check basics first. Follow + cable to solenoid and check voltage there. Should be a small wire on it. With key turned should have 12 volts on it. Clean battery cables.

As Joe said in post #2, double check all the cable connections - don't just look at them but take them loose, clean as needed and reconnect.

This past weekend's rain did my driveway in too I'll start on it today but the NASCAR race got rained out yesterday so I'll have to stop and watch it ...... priorities you know

I understand priorities also. Had to watch OU beat Auburn. so I haven't checked things out yet. My lawnmower is the priority at the moment. Time for another beer.
