Sure there is, but in all honesty its just as easy to replace the switch.

However, you can locate the wires coming out of the switch. run a jumper from one to the other long enough for it to start, then remove the jumper. If your unit requires the switch to be energised the entire run cycle, you will have to leave the jumper on.

You can buy alligator clip jumper wires at radioshack.

But then, you can buy a switch at your local appliance parts house too.

Without taking off the cover to replace the switch,,you may want to try a little dab of epoxy resin glue,,put it onto the broken part of the switch,,then gently push the broken halves of the switch to-gether and wait about 10 minutes,,if the glue sets up properly,,(and if you are gentle with it from now on) it may work.

no, you cannot bypass it. If it were easy any theif would have access to steal any car. Only way to clear the lockout condition is to repair the problem

Will not start. Can jump accross the selinoid and


I assume that you are jumping the solenoid in order to bypass an ignition switch that is no longer operating?

If so, did you have the key turned to the run position?

You should not need to bypass any safety switches, just be sure that everything is in the normal starting position. (deck disengaged, in neutral, etc.)

Either way, it sounds like you have a bad ignition switch, or faulty wiring between the ignition switch and the solenoid.
