A friend of mine has a Deere L118 that is having an issue.

It needs to be jump started al the time.I took a look at it once over the summer,and it worked for a little while and started doing it again.
When i looked at it,battery tested fine,checked connections on everything,and did find one connection on the voltage regulator that needed repaired,so i redone the connection.
Is there a way to check the voltage regulator,and see if it is working correctly?Thats the only thing i can think of that would possibly be bad.

You can check to see if the regulator is working by testing the voltage at the battery with the engine running WOT. Should be between 12.2-14.7 volts. To check the stator, hook a vom meter to the two connections coming from the engine. Be sure the meter is set to AC. Start engine and run at WOT, should have 30 volts minimum at WOT.
If the above check out, then the regulator is bad and should be replaced.
