I had a dog chew my wiring harness up last year. I had to hard wire the wires back together from a harness that i found and the wire connectors were gone. the wires to the engine the connector was gone as well. I had this mower wired to run but it would not charge the battery. I am sure that when i wired it something wasn't right due to the headlights would always blow when i put new ones in and turned them on. I am not shure how to use a voltmeter to find out which wires to hook together from the main harness on the mower side to the engine and etc. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated.
