Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
If you will look at the terminals on the back of the switch each one should have a letter on it. You have to make certain that the letters match exactly to your old switch otherwise you can create issues for yourself. My thought is that you have the wrong switch installed currently. Did you purchase the new switch from a Cub Cadet dealer using your model number?
To insure that you don't have issues with the new switch you will need to be certain that the letters on each terminal on the back of the switch match exactly otherwise you will create a problem for yourself. As soon as you turn the key you could feed voltage into places that you don't want it to go and it can burn out the ignition coil, alternator, voltage regulator/recitifier, and/or melt the wiring. It is critical that these letters match so that you don't create more issues on the machine.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
