    Check your fuses. If fuse on the voltage regulator fuse goes it will only show the 11ish volts the battery puts out when it's "dead".

    If fuse is bad replace it and you should be going but you need to figure out why fuse blew. On Grasshopper 227s the fuse panel was open on the back side and the entire wiring/fuse panel would get impacted with mud and clippings rusting out all the connections on the back side.
