I have a Cub Cadet 7235 Tractor. I am getting no power to anything, lights, glow plugs, etc. Battery and Starter tested ok at an auto parts store. I replaced the positive cable to the Starter. The fuses are OK. I can not find any inline fuses to check. It always started a little quirky.

You had to find a sweet spot in neutral for it to turn over, however I would have power while trying to get the shifter into the sweet spot. This is my first tractor and diesel and I feel like I am chasing a ghost. Any ideas and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Tractors have safety switches that make sure the clutch is depressed you ar ein your seat and even what gear you are . So I would look at all the safety switches and temporaily bypass them to see if that checks out . ....

Doesn’t sound like a safety switch as no power at all. The safety switch does not usually come into play for lights.

Check the battery voltage between the positive of the battery and the frame of the tractor. Possibly you lost a ground connection. ....

A couple of things to try/do:
- Check the negative wire from the battery to the frame. Nothing will work if this isn't well connected.
- Top off the battery with distilled water. Low liquid in one or more cells and you won't get any power. to turn the starter.
- Try jumping the tractor using your car. If this works, the battery is most likely shot. (Did the parts store do a load test on the battery?)
- if you have a battery charger, hook it up and let it do it's thing. Mayber your alternator is not charging the battery?
- There is a 'fusible link' that is basically a big fuse for everything but the starterr. It's probably danglling from the main harness about under the starter motor. If it's blown, better find out why before replacing it.
- Check the wiring harnesses carefuly for chewing or other worn insulation. Mice like some wire insulation for some reason.

Thanks guys,
It ended up being a bad ground connection. I found it after checking all of the positive side possibilities first. I appreciate your replies! ....
