Question about Cub Cadet Op's Manual Model Lt1042 Lt1045 Lt1046 Lt1050
Bought mower second hand a year ago and dont have manual, the two arrows are pointing towards each other and is in the left hand side of the display. Mower starts and runs okay, but I have never noticed this message flashing before, it was getting low on oil which I have since topped up.

First, check the level of the hydraulic fluid (usually the dipstick is right inside the fill cap, and you just raise the seat to access it). If it's low, fill 'er up with the right fluid.
If that's OK, test if the lack of 'pull' affects the left wheel in both forward and reverse -- try going up a hill forward, and backing up it in reverse. If it affects both directions, maybe you will be lucky -- the problem could be that the bypass for the left hydraulic motor has opened somehow. (The bypass is used to let you push the mower by hand in case of an engine failure, etc.) So look for a fat-headed bolt sticking out of the left hydraulic motor. Check that it's tight -- rotate it just like you would tighten a bolt, clockwise. If it wasn't tight, that may be the problem; just tighten it and try the mower.
If this doesn't resolve it, you probably have a problem in the hydraulic valves, hoses, or motor, and a trip to the dealer is needed. Probably won't be cheap, sorry my friend. Good luck, and please rate if this was helpful, thanks!

There are two belts - the main drive belt from the engine to the hydrostatic transmission, and the mower belt that runs from the engine to the mower deck. Sounds like the main drive belt broke or came off. It's not an easy job to replace because it's up against the chassis underneath, and you usually have to remove and replace some parts to get at it. Take a look under there, see if the belt's gone, and decide if you want to tackle it or have a shop do it.

Unfortunately, the circuit is a little complicated - it involves the "PTO switch" (the switch you pull on to engage the mower), a "reverse switch" that senses if you've put the mower in reverse, and a relay operated by the reverse switch. The reverse switch is there to disengage the blades if you try to reverse while mowing. A failure in any of those items, or the connectors and wiring between them, will prevent the blades from engaging. Unless you want to "shotgun it" and replace parts one-by-one on a guess (which many repairmen to do save time, but at your expense) you need to use an ohmmeter or test light to trace and isolate where the failure is.

you have a wire that is grounding out, I would check the wire coming from the connector on the voltage regulator to the battery. This is the one in the middle position, look for a rub through and tape it up.
