Default XT2 headlights

Hello guys
I know I did the on my LTX-1040 but I can’t remember how I did it and I sold it. I now have a 2020 XT2 GX50 and I want to add a rocker switch on the dash to turn the head lights off when I don’t need them, I just don’t like them on during the day. I ordered a waterproof toggle switch with 12” of lead wire coming from the 2 leads. Thanks for the help......Scott

Wiring a toggle switch for headlights is pretty simple actually. All you need is a wire from the positive battery terminal to the switch, then a wire from the switch to the headlights. You'll want to disconnect the stock harness wires that deliver power to the lights, but leave the ground wires if you can. If not you'll need extra wires that run from where the ground wires were, to somewhere on the frame of the tractor (remove paint from that spot to ensure proper ground).

That should be all you need unless it's some sort of fancy high/low beam setup, in that case you'll need someone else to explain it because I don't have a clue about that

Thanks for the advice. Since the lights have power all the time I should be able to just use the positive wire going to the lights

Well guys it took me about 10 minutes and I can now just turn the lights on when I need them. I spent the most time deciding the location of the switch but it looks factory almost and works great. Thanks for the help. I am really liking the XT2 GX50

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
