    I took my battery off of my exmark zero turn before winter. I went to hook it up today and there is a positive a negative and a yellow wire that comes out of the wiring harness. I hooked up the negative and positive and i put the yellow wire on the positive terminal. It made a buzzing noise so i put it on the negative side, no luck. I was wondering if any of you have experienced this problem? It is a liquid cooled exmark if that helps. Thanks

    Make sure your terminals are clean and tight. Make sure battery is fully charged, sound like loss of power to the starter. I don't know about that yellow wire, I'd call your dealer.

    There is no yellow wire on mine, but my guess is that the other side of it goes to the key switch for the starter solenoid and therefore should be connected to the battery ground. The buzzing sound you heard when connected to the positive terminal might have been the solenoid and you may have blown a fuse. Might want to check for that. I'm just guessing though.
