I have a John Deere D110 that last ran around two weeks ago. I went to start it last night and nothing; it wouldn't even crank and the starter wasn't even clicking. I thought it might be a completely dead battery, so I left it plugged in to a charger overnight and went back out this morning. The charger said the battery was charged.
I tried starting it again and same thing; nothing. The headlights turn on, as does the little hour display so I figured the battery has power. The fuse isn't blown, as if it was the little display wouldn't turn on. The brake is properly engaged, blades are off and the seat is properly down.
I grabbed a multimeter and tried to test the battery; its supposed to be a 12 volt battery but I am only getting a reading of 6.88 volts. Would this voltage be low enough to cause the mower to not even try to crank?
Would this indicate that my battery is dead?
