1 Answer

I have a Cub Cadet LTX1040 that does not charge the battery while running and I don't believe it ever did. I bought it brand new from Home Depot in November in 2013.

You are out of luck as this machine is four years old. you should have taken it back when you first realized it was not charging. You have to get it checked out. I did have an old machine that never charged itself so I purchased a little battery charger you plug into the hydro and kept it charged up that way. It worked for me.

Cub cadet ltx1040 oil light on

Thomas, the oil light is on as a result of a signal from a pressure transducer that is seeing low oil pressure being developed within the engine. Unless the transducer is bad, it is telling you it is low on oil. A simple pulling of the oil dipstick while cold should show you a low oil level in the crankcase.

Did you check voltage on the battery, and did you leave it running at a high idle? (low idle can consume battery voltage instead of charging it.
On many tractors the lights do not run unless the motor is running so don't let that throw you off.
Things to check
Make sure no fuses popped.
Makes sure you have gas
Try jumping it to see if it starts If not, it sounds like you may have a short, or may have a safety switch that is acting up. look for loose, broken, damaged wires.
Check to see if any wires are hot when the battery is fully charged. Try that and repost what you do or don't find.

I cant find the fuse on the ltx1040 where is it located

Not sure if you have the same model. Mine is 1040LXT and I think the year is 2009. In any case, I looked for the fuse for two days and finally I took the battery out (it is under the seat) and there under the battery on the wiring harness was the fuse. Try there.

I have a cub Cadet ltx1040 that the drive belt came off of and i need a diagram to put it back on.

I couldn't find anything online on how to do this so I had to figure it out myself. I drew a picture hope it makes sense.

1. Lift seat
2. Remove battery clip and battery
3. Remove metal battery receptacle, you will see the 3 drive belt pulleys throw the battery hole
4. Pull pulley 2 towards pulley 1 and run belt around all 3 pulleys as shown in the attached picture.91efb34.jpg
