Question about Cub Cadet Riding Lawn Garden Tractor 25hp Kohler 50"
Hooked up battery on cub cadet 1040. I thought I was sold a dead battery. I tried to jump start to prove that battery was dead. Wires started sparking so I disconnected. Then realized the terminals were wrong. Exchanged for correct battery and got no response when I turned ignition key. Did I burn up the selonoid?
I doubt that jim, but i don't know anyway quicker to kill a charged battery than to hook it up backwards to another battery (sparks you mentioned) try using a spare car light bulb to verify that battery is charged up , also look for inline fuse someplace close to the battery location, you might have blown that , continue using car bulb to "walk" thru circuit to verify presants of voltage (key/starter/dashlghts)

I would srart by removing the negitive battery cable then the positive and clean posts and terminal ends with wire brush or sandpaper. I would then go through and one by one clean each cable you can get to on the starter and solenoid and any grounds to frame. Clean one at a time and replace as you go.If you have had the same battery for more than two years I would replace it to. A good battery will cost you about $40.00
Check gear on starter to see if teeth are badly worn. If so most of the gears can be replaced without replacing the starter. Make sure you have a good clean plug with the proper gap, clean fuel and air filter and vent hole in gas cap.Hope this helps you and thanks.

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.

Sounds to me like you might be having a problem with either your key switch, or more likely your starter. Although I have never had a starter go out on any riding mower Ive ever had, thats really what is sounds like. On the other hand, I have had many a key switch go bad and they act alot like your symptoms. So I would start at the simplest and work backwards.
Also, make sure blades are disengaged and also they are not bound up on the underside of the mower deck. also check the belt and its not in a bind. These thing could be dragging down your motor keeping it from starting. Let me know if I can help further. Have a Great Day! Good Luck!

Testimonial: "This all sounds logical to me and I had already checked to make sure the pto was off and consequentially no belt bind. Kinda leaning toward the key switch more so than starter I'll do some more checking and let you know .thanx for your suggestions."
SOURCE: Cub cadet will not start
The click you normally hear is the fuel shut off solinoid in the bottom of the carb, if there is no power here and no click you have either no power in the battary, the battary terminals are loose, or there is an inline fuse gone.
