Hi Rodney,
Here is a link to one of the Cub Cadet 1500 Series with a wiring diagram. Yours may be similar to this. If you are NOT Sure, take the mower to the shop for Repair/Service.
Best of Luck,
JP

Changed starter solenoid and now mower won't start?


Make sure wires are not reversed on solenoid. If they are you may have to replace it again.

I have a problem that the 40 amp fuse that sends a signal to motor solenoid of starter and then goes to negative which burns the fuse?


If it worked before you installed the new starter then the problem must be in the new starter. There should be a large gage wire going to the large stud on the solenoid and a small wire going to one of maybe two small studs on the solenoid. The small wire energizes the solenoid which shifts the starter pinion (gear) to the flywheel and energizes the starter motor. Check for proper wiring and make sure no wire is grounding out on the frame somewhere.

Ground wire from key switch starts burning when i try to start riding lawnmower BATTERY GROUNDED GOOD


You have a ground issues somewhere of where a wire may have rubbed the frame and is shorting out, wrong solenoid (frame ground verse wire ground) or a starter issue.

Take the starter off and test it with a good battery and jumpers to make sure its working correctly. Second...start tracing your wires back to the solenoid and then to the switch looking for bare or loose wiress.

sounds like you are hooking up the starter wrong. the positive goes to the starter main terminal from the battery. the ignition wire goes to the s on the solenoid, which activates 12 volts when the ignition switch is turned on which causes a magnetic field
inside the solenoid and joins the connectors
in the solenoid to the main positive wire from the
battery to the main starter unit brushes/armature inside the starter unit. If you have a constant
12 volts from the ignition wire it will keep the solenoid engaged. If you put the main positive wire on the wrong solenoid terminal it will immediately engage the starter. try putting the main battery wire to the correct terminal or perhaps check the ignition wire for a short or constant voltage to the solenoid.

Have 98 s10 blazer 4.3. when trying to start in morning cranks good wont start can put jumper cables on and it will take right off battery not dead or weak. after get started it will start rest day ok


sounds like you may have a bad ground cable. just as a test you can run a thick wire from the battery to the frame or another good ground on the engine see if this makes a difference if it does replace the ground cable.

My 1999 Ford F250 Light Duty Truck has a corroded cable that goes to the starter. I replaced the ground cable that goes from the battery to the starter and it still will not turn over. I left the original...


the ground cable is just that. as long as it connects from the battery to the engine and another cable from the engine to body or the battery to the body, thats OK.. Now the 2 positive cables goes from battery to the starter solenoid on the fender and another from the battery to the starter itself. there is a red wire (smaller) that goes from the solenoid to the stater .....there is a fusible link at the starter solenoid, make sure that the solenoid has power. if no power ..then the fuse links may be burned out. if you connect battery power to the small terminal on the solenoid the starter should spin the engine over IF all other wires are ok.

Items of interest.

1.When a starter fails to start a vehicle, and the wiring has been found to be bad, and changed, one suspects the wiring first.

2.If a starter is suspected to be bad, one takes it out, and performs a benchtest, or takes it to an auto parts store, and see if they can do a benchtest. They need to load test it, not just see if it will Spin!

This test result should stop the needless buying, of starter after starter. If you get three bad starters in a row from an auto parts store, I suggest it's time to change auto parts stores! (Make sure, you are not twisting the S terminal on the Solenoid, when installing the ignition wires)

3.The frame of your vehicle should be the Ground.

Make sure that the motor home manufacturer, hasn't reversed the system for this motor home, and is using the frame for Positive.
This was done in the past for some older vehicles, because it was thought to reduce rusting, of the frame. However, you're dealing with a motor home. Hard to say what type of system they used.
Normal, would be using the frame as a Ground.

In the normal type of setup, of using the frame as ground, make sure where the starter contacts that 454 Chevy engine block, that this area of the starter has no paint on it. The starter grounds through the engine block, and where the starter contacts the engine block.

Make sure also, that this area of the engine block has no paint on it.

Be sure that there are flat braided ground straps going from the frame, to the engine block. If they are an insulated wire, and not braided flat straps, be sure they are about the thickness of your little finger. You'll notice I stated -> They. There should be TWO of them. ONE, will NOT Do!

The frame is the ground. The starter gets it's Ground source from the engine. The engine gets it's ground source from the frame. The only contact the engine has to the frame, is the motor mounts, and the transmission mount. They have
RUBBER in the middle!
There HAS to be -> ground straps! There MUST be TWO of them for the correct amount of grounding!

4.Power to start the starter turning comes from the ignition switch. The reason you have a solenoid on the starter, is so that there won't be a wire that is the thickness of your little finger, going up to the ignition switch!

Check the wire that comes from the ignition switch, for power, once the ignition switch is turned to the Start position.

Battery -> Negative terminal disconnected. Ignition wire from starter disconnected. Put electrical tape on the terminal end, of the ignition wire you removed from the starter solenoid. (Goes to the -> S <- on the solenoid)

Leave the other wires on, put the nut back on, and tighten. (Use caution in this area. The nut is only 5/16 inch, or 11/32. This means that threaded post is TINY. DON'T overtighten! IF, the threaded post starts to turn, STOP! Pull out on the post.

Inside the solenoid cap, that you can't see, there is a square boss, on inside end, of this tiny threaded terminal post. The solenoid cap, has a square hole that this boss fits into. Keeps that tiny threaded post from turning. Inside the cap, the tiny threaded post is connected to a one strand copper wire. If you twist the tiny threaded post, more than 90 degrees, the wire will twist off! Time for another solenoid!

Wheels chocked. Transmission in neutral, and it's best to have the parking brake on, and someone in the drivers seat. Have this person hold their foot down on the brake pedal. This way you avoid any accidents happening to YOU, someone else, or property.

Reconnect the Negative battery terminal. (Order of connecting up a battery is ALWAYS, Positive terminal First, Negative terminal last)

Take a multimeter set it to DC, and to the 50 volt scale. Find a clean, non-painted surface on the frame, (Or scratch a little area), touch the Black lead, (Negative probe) of the multimeter to it. Touch the Red lead, (Positive probe), of the multimeter to the ignition wire, electrical tape partially removed. (Enough so you can make a good contact to that terminal. The tape is there, in case the wire slips out of your hand, and touches a ground. If it has no tape, you'll think it's the Fourth of July under there!)

No reading? Be sure the person inside, has the ignition switch in the starting position. Still no reading? Check that ignition switch out. See if it's getting power.

Bobcat 642 starter is not engaging


The" extra"12vdc solenoid mounted on the left side of the engine is for more AMPS to go to the smaller solenoid on the starter motor. This solenoid is a 3 wire I think. 1 big cable on one side goes to the positive lug on the starter small solenoid HOT BATTERY connection is and system power, the other side cable on the frame mounted solenoid goes to the TRIGGER lug on the small solenoid on the starter motor. The center wire goes to the " S " terminal on the key start switch. Sounds like you have either\ and some bad cables ( getting hot ) and possiably a bad ground from the battery NEG post to the ENGINE BLOCK. With no ground it does not matter how much voltage you have, it wont work. May also have a failing solenoid on the frame. If you remove the cable going from it to the starter solenoid, for testing, and try to start the engine, you should here a " clunk " from it where it is engageing internaly and have battery voltage where you took off the wire. Good luck

Starter won't engage


First, make sure that your battery is in good condition, FULLY CHARGED, and the wires/cables that are connected to the Battery Terminals are clean and securely connected, and the same with the Ground wire/cable from the Battery terminal to the Frame. If you still have that problem, is sounds like you need to replace your STARTER RELAY, and/or Clean or Rebuild the Solenoid. ALSO, check that the wire connection TO the solenoid (that's the small green wire that comes from the Starter Switch) is clean and securely connected. Good Luck.
