My solenoid split apart at the small wire (see pic). Ordered a new one but now the tractor, IH Cub Cadet 169 has no lights. Could the fuse under the dash, requiring the gas tank to be removed, be blown? Incidentally, the Mazda Miata battery, recommended by Digger lasted 10 years! Got a new battery but price doubled;-( Is anyone using a battery maintainer on their Cubs?

Yes I have a cub at a family members house I use to clear their drive. I have left it on a battery tender for a year or more now.
