I have a Cub Cadet LT 1554. It has a reverse deck cutoff switch that cuts the deck off when the reverse pedal is depressed unless the key switch is in a certain position and the reverse mowing is turned on (pic showing the key position and turn on button below). Occasionally the deck will not come on or will shut off for no reason. I am suspecting the reverse switch that shuts it off unless the reverse mowing function is turned on. What I need to know is where this detecting switch is located so I can test it and replace if necessary. Thanks in advance for the help. Gimmo

I also have a Cub Cadet with this switch. Mine is a 2009 LT 1050. In the 2 years I have had it I have had to replace the key switch in your pic 3 times, all under warranty. I had the same problems as you. Occasionally I still have the problem. It seems like the switch wears out really quick. Or perhaps it is something else, but a new switch always seems to work for a while. Good Luck

It didn't occur to me to be the key switch, I was suspecting the reverse detecting switch. Thanks for the advice. Gimmo

Any reason this is posted in a JD thread and not CC?

yeah the reason for that is that John Deere is my interest and what I read about, I forgot that I was in the Deere forum when I posted it. Just wasn't paying attention, maybe I would get more results if I were in the right forum huh! Sorry Gimmo
