Scag SWZ Relay Short
Scag 61" walk behind
Model: SWZ - 20CVE
Serial No: 14150534 (yes the mower has a some hours on it)
There seems to be a short somewhere that is draining the battery. I can hear a clicking noise in the relay when I connect / disconnect the relay and the battery is charged. The draw is pretty good and drains the battery quickly. I was wondering if there were any ideas on where the short might be. I have scoured over the wires looking for a frayed wire or something similar that might be causing the short but I could not find anything.
I now charge/jump the battery at start up in order to get it started.
Also just recently the mower deck stopped working after a few minutes of mowing. I first thought that the belt tension may be an issue or a stiff pulley wheel? However I checked the belt tension and it seemed ok (belt is a bit worn). So I am wondering if the battery/short issue is somehow related to the mower deck...
Any input is greatly appreciated.
