 Electrical Starting Problem

I have a Cub Cadet 7275 (diesel) that has been having starter problems for months. Sometimes does and sometimes just clicks. Lately doesn't do anything. The battery, starter motor, solenoid are all good. I just replaced the ignition switch and did some testing. 14 V on the hot wire, but when turning the key to right for first stop, the V out (to the fuel pump I think) goes to only a few volts and when turning past the spring for the solenoid, the voltage is only about 6 V. It seems there is a heavy draw somewhere that drops the soleniod voltage below operating level. Does anyone have ideas on this problem?

If possible disconnect all wires from the switch and leave the hot in. Then test each output. If they are not fine, it is the switch. If they are fine, re-attach each wire individually and test as you go. My tractor is having the same problem right now and for the past 5 years. It is a bad ignition switch that I just don't fix. Clicking it 3-4 times seems to work.

 Electrical Starting Problem

I saw a similar problem when working on a friend's pickup truck once. It was less than two years old. It wouldn't crank sometimes; we replaced the battery and it didn't help. I was getting ready to replace the starter when I noticed one of the battery cables was corroded. We stripped some of the insulation back, and the corrosion ran down the cable. It was ruined. Replacing the cable fixed it.
Good luck,
Bill

 Electrical Starting Problem

Bill, look back at starting issues with the Cub. There has been other folks write in with a problem, and I believe it was Ted at Abbeywoods that told about a relay (?) that needed to be added or something like that. I have a 7234 and have had a similar problem but it hasn't been that big a deal for me yet. It has been talked about a few times on this forum. Let us know how it turns out.

 Electrical Starting Problem

You need a relay wired in between the ignition switch & the starter ted at abbeywoods told me about it
I have had NO problem in 2 yrs since I installed the relay & I had the exact same problem you are experiencing.
He told me there was a recall but Cub supposedly knows about it even though the dealer sold me the relay

I am interested in the relay approach, but am not familiar with Abbeywoods. Is this an online store?

 Electrical Starting Problem

I have the same problem with my 7275. It was a minor annoyance for a while and have left it. Now I'm having lots more difficulties. It used to start when I would jiggle the rear and mid PTO handles while turning the key. Now I've found that moving the range selector handle while in Neutral towards me and hitting the stop will get it going. I've always assumed that it has something to do with the electrical interlocks (transmission neutral position and PTO off). Beneathe the PTO lever mechanisms going into the rear end housing is an electrical device. I think this may be it. I'm going to talk to my dealer.

PS: Abbeywoods is one of the tractorpoint members.

No abbeywoods was a gentleman on this forum who knew much about Cubs
I went through new cables had the starter tested had the safety switches tested etc & since the relay was installed it has never failed.It has something to do with the relay providing more currant directly to the starter
You can email me at larrywal1atyahoo.com I think I still have the installation diagram & the part # for the relay
Hope this helps

 Electrical Starting Problem

I am still having this problem with my Cub 7275. It will start ok about 50% of the time. Other times, when I turn the ignition key on - I just hear a 'click'. I have tried cleaning the batter connections - battery is good. I have not tried the new relay as of yet.

I suspect that it is something to do with the safety switches in the shifting levers?

What I find works is taking (temporary fix) is taking my portable battery and hooking it up to the solenoid on the starter. I then turn the starter key - the solenoid just spins. I then shut the starter key off - unhook the portable battery and then jump on and start the tractor - has been working for me - but is a pain since I have a loader on the tractor.

I have also visited with the dealer and he really does not know anything about this problem...

I too - would like to know if someone has a solid solution to this problem.
