Question about John Deere 22HP Hydrostatic 42" Riding Mower
Everything runs ..engine, mover, problem is when I push both forward and reverse pedals tractor does not move. No noise or pitch sounds from transmission. There is a lever on back of tractor silver colour to pull out or push in does that have anything to do with engaging movement of tractor? Dont have manual sorry.

Yes it does if it is pulled out it allows you to push by hand if it is pushed in it runs off of hydraulic pump in transmission.

Go to youtube . Type in your make and model/ forward and reverse will not engage. Should be helpful.

You have the old style reverser which has been replaced by one that beeps instead of kicking out.These are a known problem with Deere and that is why you can't buy them anymore.The fact that you can hold it in yourself indicates that the enable solenoid and the forward and reverse solenoid are ok and all safety switches are working.You need to replace the reversrer.

From what I can find, that is a 'timeout' error indicating the expected signals from the hydrostatic transmission are not being received. That would suggest that some of the wiring is still not repaired. Could it be the nice doggie pulled out a connector partially and you didn't notice? Make sure all connectors are firmly seated.
Some have seen this error code occur for the simple reason that the battery voltage was borderline low -- those computers are sensitive. So before you take it to the dealer, put the battery on a charger overnight to see if that resolves it.
Hope this helps. If so, please rate my solutions, thanks and good luck!

it's 1 of 5 likely things
The drive belt from the engine to the transaxle is totally slipping or broken
The linkage from the control pedal to the transaxle is faulty.
The transaxle is broken (not user fixable)
The by-pass rod is pulled out
The brake pedal is pushed or the linkage is stuck in the "brake" position.

well if the drive belt is working, that is it turns the large pulley on top of the transmission, then most likely you have a bad transmission. the last owner found out that it will cost more to get another transmission than the tractor is worth. there is a small stamping along the bottom center of the transmission, will tell you the make and model and you can start searching for a NOS one on ebay or a used one at a lawn mower junkyard.

hydrostatic transmission has reached the end of its life. Call a dealer and get a price to repair, then contrast that amount with the cost of a new mower. Those transmissions are not cheap, you may find folks selling them NOS on eBay, certainly worth a few minutes googling around before you lay down the bucks. Do not buy a used transmission.
