yes it is there is one under the seat & under the dash & there is also one connected to the clutch/ brake peddle which is more than likely the one giving you problems is the clutch/brake peddle switch

Testimonial: "Adjusting the gap worked. Old gap was .037". I adjusted it to .012"."
check the kill switch and the wire it could be that a small piece of the covering came off and is grounding to the deck or frame there by killing the engine the jerkink of the mower maybe whats causing the wire to come into contact with metal..good luck
