My mower would run for a few seconds then stop with the yellow light flashing. I tried several suggestions that I saw here. The one that worked is turning on the light. I put the battery in the mower, started it, and it ran for a few seconds then stopped. The battery began flashing yellow. Leaving the battery in the mower, with the battery charge indicator flashing yellow, I turned on the light. Within a few minutes the light turned green. BOOM!!! It’s been working fine so far. Thank you for the finding this solution.

Are you saying that you have to have the headlight on every time you mow now? Or it was just the one time to get something to reset and you don't have to have the light on every time now?

Why is it important to auto discharge?
I have not been doing this.
