JD 5303 starting problem

Replaced the battery in my 5303 and now it won't start. It turns over very well but there's no fuel. There is a fuse that blows when I turn the key and I have traced the wires to the top of the fuel pump. What is this electrical part and do I have to replace the whole pump to fix it? Thanks for any and all input.

This one is easy! Look above the pump. You will see the coolant temp sensor. In that same area is another similar sensor with a pigtail. This other sensor is called a cold start switch. It is wired with the fuel shut off solenoid on the pump. All you have to do us unplug this sensor and replace fuse. Replace sensor when you can. They aren't expensive.

Yup! That simple! If you follow the wire from your injection pump's fuel shut off solenoid, you will see where the harness continues to the front of the engine & right to that sensor. I've done tons of them thru the years! Just unplug it! Put one in before cold weather. If u go to your local dealer, a good parts guy won't even have to look it up, it's that common.
