My son was mowing, with our cub cadet 2166, and ran the left front tire into a fence and now the steering wheel wont work. You can turn it and it feels really loose but it isn't connecting to the

Check the two main gears. One at the end of the steering shaft and the other that it contacts. Some brands are adjustable where the large gear is held on by a bolt and an excentric which allows you to move the large gear closer to the smaller gear. This may have been knocked out of place or the gear(s) stripped. Here is a basic diagram of the parts.

I have a series model 1018 cub cadet with electric mower deck. After mowing for about 45 minutes, I turned off the tractor for a few minutes. When I tried to restart, the battery was dead. I jumped started...

If you have access to an electric voltmeter, with it running check voltage at the battery. The engine should charge the battery and maintain system voltage so that the electic PTO will function. The electic PTO will not pull in if system voltage is too low.

My 1996 Ducati 900 SS died while riding and there was no electrical power when i went to restart. i just replaced the battery 2 weeks ago. after about an hour of sitting there was enough juice to turn...

Put some charge in the battery and start the engine.
Check the battery voltage exceeds 13.6 volts with the engine speed of about 1000RPM. If not check the regulator and altenator.

Cub Cadet 2166 series. Mower will not engage.

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.

I have a Cub Cadet that wont start.

Easy check is your cable connections and condition. Next would be to remove the starter and test it. Then check the solenoid.

Battery light goes red after bumping/backing up
