Cub Cadet 2160 charging problem

The Low Volt light comes on sometimes, but only when PTO is engaged. It has a new battery, which I charged before installing. All wiring checks out, stator winding(s) are not open, and the diodes in the 'alternator' test OK.

You need to repair either repair a poor connection from the alternator[stator], or replace the rectifier/regulater.Some systems have a inline fuse check that first.

My cub cadet pto will kick off when you go faster, it will only run when you are just barely moving


If you are referring to an electric PTO here is the way they work. They need good current from the battery to stay engaged because they are a electric clutch and if the charging system is not supplying the right voltage to keep the battery at a good state you would have a charging problem. Another could be the clutch may be worn enough to cause the problem and that would be the most likely cause if you have a known good or new battery. Hope this will help you.

Everything works fine until I engage the PTO for the mower deck. The battery discharge light comes on and eventually the battery goes dead.


The PTO clutch is an electro magnet. There is probably a dead short within the clutch body. Replace the Clutch.
