SOURCE: cub cadet z force mower dies after releasing park

According to the wiring diagram in my ?07 Z-Force manual, a malfunctioning safety switch under the seat is the only device which could cause this problem. Try flipping the seat upside down and locate the seat safety switch. Pry the locking tab out and remove the connector from the switch. Make sure the PTO is off and the brake is set and try starting the engine again. Release the brake again. If the engine doesn?t die this time, the seat safety switch is either defective or not being activated when the seat is occupied. The switch should be closed when unoccupied and should open when the seat is occupied. I wouldn?t recommend normal operation of the mower with safety switches defeated or disconnected.

Cub cadet tank wont move once releasing the parking brake

Not sure what you are trying to do, but in order to push a Cub Cadet (when its not running), you need to put the transmission in ANY gear other than Neutral.

M60 cub cadet zero turn. What causes it to shut off?

There is also a safety switch for each of control arms, they both have to be in the neutral position. You may have to adjust the arms.
Are you checking the resistance at the switches?

Trying to jump (with my car, I know it's not good) my cub cadet LTX 1046. Worked a few times. Now the parking brake light comes on when I try to turn it over and the motor won't even try to start. Nothing....

Find the switch attached to the parking brake mechanism. It's probably stuck. Jumping with a car will not hurt it if it uses a 12 volt battery. The car is not "too much power" for it. The mower will only take what it needs.

I have a cub cadet model 3184 i want to be able to mower in reverse it used to all of a sudden it started disengaging the mower when i push reverse pedal.

There are 3 switches to check. The Brake switch, the parking brake switch and the reverse switch. Any one not funtioning properly will cause this symptom.
See this manual page 82 for the Brake and Reversing switch locations:

The parking brake switch is under the parking brake handle. It is not shown in the manual.
These are all make or break switches. Check resistance across the terminals in both actuated and extended positions. I think there may be a problem with either the pedal / brake switch or the reversing switch.

Wiring can also cause this same problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa, Kelly

Z force 48 in. cub Cadet mower starts but dies

Check the wires to the seat switch. Under the seat you should find 2 wires connected to the seat. Unplug them, and use a jumper on the end that goes into the body of the mower. Try it again, and if it works, replace your seat.
