I recently acquired a Cub Cadet 125 with electrical issues. When I connected a battery the starter, generator began turning the engine over with the key in the off position. Any ideas as to where I should start looking? Could it be a bad part, miss connected wire or both?

Get a wiring diagram of the 125. Then check for proper wiring and clean all connections so you will have good continuity. Also ohm out all switches to make sure they work. :bluethumbsup:

Paul,

I see you have 21 messages. Have you learned where the sticky threads are? press the Forums tab, then scroll down to IH Cub Cadet Tractor forum. The first six threads stay in their positions. This is because they have a wealth of information, including wiring diagrams (fancy colored ones from Roland).

Here is the 125:
