Re: Cub cadet wont crank
Could be a safety switch gone bad, but I would look into the key switch... They are prone to problems on the 2166. It seems to be an oddball switch too from what I've read, only used on this model. I don't know what's different because I haven't replaced mine yet.
On mine it will do this sometimes but if I jump the starter with a screwdriver the key starts working again for awhile.
