    My cub cadet 2145 (Onan engine)runs the battery down. The amp light stays on. I swapped out the voltage regulator, but the amp light still remains on. What else could I try in fixing the problem?

One possible problem is the voltage regulator is out. To test this, start the engine and put a d.c. volt meter on the battery, if the voltage readout decreases as the mower runs, replace the regulator

Is the red light on before you engage the blade?

There may be a blown diode in the charging circuit.

Battery- If this light illuminates while the engine is
running, it indicates that the battery is in
need of a charge OR that the engine's
charging system is not generating sufficient
amperage. Refer to Battery on page 26 of
this manual for the properbattery charging
procedure or have theengine's charging
system checked by a Cub Cadet dealer.

sounds like you may have ignition coil or module whichever you prefer (one in the same) may be heating up and shutting down? Check all your grounding connections also

Hello bigdave1138:

From your Description it Sounds like the Stator/Charging Coils are Bad or the Voltage Regulator (if Applicable) is Bad.
For Testing the Electrical (Charging) System on Mowers you can Use this Site Addy; http://faqs.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/faqs.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3438&p_created=1101706364&p_sid=4fQ1f8Xi&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=&p_lva=3443&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9NTEmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPTAmcF9wdj0mcF9jdj0mcF9wYWdlPTEmcF9zZWFyY2hfdGV4dD1Wb2x0YWdlIGFuZCBTdGF0b3IgQ2hlY2s*&p_li=&p_topview=1 and Use the Link for AC Volts/DC Amps Meter Setting Chart. This is for Briggs Engines and Works Well for Kohler and Other Engine OEMs.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
