Cub cadet CLT160, not charging

Alternator under the flywheel tests good. Wiring harness checks out ok. I found a burned out red wire coming off the alternator, looks like it may have had a fuselink or maybe a diode. What regulates the voltage to the battery?

SOURCE: replaced alternator on 1985 Ford Bonco 4X4 302

turn your vehicle on, disconnect the battery, both terminals(while truck is still on) if it dies on you, then either the alternator is bad or wiring is wrong. if it stays on, then you may have a bad battery or voltage regulator. Check the voltage on the battery before you turn it on(should be from 11.5v-12v), when you turn it on if the alternator if working properly you should have around 13v-14v.

The voltage regulator is in the PCM. If there is a problem with it, the PCM has to be replaced.

SOURCE: i have a voltage regulator problem. ihave gone

the voltage regulator is normally built in to the alternator, so i would have expected this to have cured the problem.
it appears to me that something else is causing the regulator to continually blow and this in turn is overcharging the battery, causing it to fail.

the only thing i can think of to check is the earth leads going from the battery to the engine and the body of the car. make sure they are tight and fixed to clean rust free metal.
i would then get the system checked by a specialist auto electrician as it will save you money in the long run

Have a cub cadet zero turn. Have read several things of what it might be. They are saying the charging system. Not understanding what I need to replace. Could u please help?!?!?

Rita. the charging system is several things. on the engine under the flywheel there is a magneto that charges the battery. you need to test to see if it is or is not charging. if it is ok check connections. a bad connection will keep it from charging. any and all connections. might be a broken wire . hope this will help you out.

Check your safety seat switch. Unplug the wiring harness to the switch and place a paper clip into the harness. This will bypass the switch unless you have a continuity tester to test the switch.

I need a wiring diag for a international cub cadet 782 sn#2050601u725761 mod#144782399 17hp kolher will not charge when blades are on

Here is the wiring dagram for sn's 720000-737624

Not sure why the problem manifests only when the blades are on.
Battery charging power comes from the white alternator wire on the engine thru the key switch (in run or start position) terminals R to B through the charge indicator and a fuse to a connection on the start solenoid and then to the battery. It does not go through the PTO clutch. The only thing that would make any sense is if there was a chassis wiring harness short that was being made by the position of the mower deck.

Hopefully the diagram will help you find the problem.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Starter generator turns over slow with new full charged battery on a 124 cub cadet when trying to start. It is a new starter generator - suppose to have been tested. I have checked wiring - acts like it...

With the battery going dead on its own like that, I think you have a short circuit somewhere that is causing this problem. This could be anywhere in your wiring system so check everything out. Hope this is helpful to you. Best regards and good luck.

If the head lights come on, check the PTO switch connector. Very often the connector comes loose.

If no headlights, check the fuse. If blowen look for shorted wiring: Mice may have chewed wires inside the flywheel cover; check the head light cable. Often it rubs through at the hood pivot; check the lead on the carburetor solenoid, sometimes they rub through at the wire ties holding the red lead to the solenoid.

I am a certified Cub service tech,and those are the common problems I have run into.

Oh, one more thing, make sure the battery is good. Load test it or have it load tested if you don't have a tester. Don't just check it with a volt meter. That wont load the battery to check for dead cells.

Good luck!
