My JD LX255 would not start, so I bypassed the parking brake switch and it starts, but when I try to engage my mower deck the engine dies. I bypassed the seat switch, but this did not help. Any suggestions?

JD X595 4x4 mower - Starts OK, BUT, as soon as the brake is released, the motor cuts out.


I would try bypassing the seat switch and the brake switch. Do this one at a time to determine if the switch is bad. Also buy some Sta-bil fuel stabilizer and gel remover. I recommend this for any seasonal equipment. Often the engine is not getting enough fuel and will stall when the pto is engaged. Sta-bil often rectifies this problem.

What causes a riding mower to die when engaging the blade


safety switch in the seat and in the brake. if one of those is open, engine will die when you engage the blades. Owners manual should have wiring diagram so you can bypass switches to test (if you have brake applied and are sitting in the seat and that is when it is dying).

My dad is trying to fix a lawn mower for a friend. It is a John Deere LX172. Whenever the mower deck is engaged or the unit is put into gear, the engine dies as if the ignition were shut off. I think...


Check the seat switch. That will cause your problem. It happened to me when I was not sitting on seat and turned deck on. Mine is a LX172 also.

What causes JD 260 riding mower to start dying when you engage the mower deck? It runs fine when you disengage the mower deck.


It's the safety system that causes this. There is a switch under the seat that should activate when you are sitting in the seat. The switch can come loose or fail, the mounting can break, or the wires can come loose - any of these would cause the "engine dies when I engage the mower deck" behavior. Lift the seat, examine the switch. Rmove the switch and keep the plunger in with a piece of tape. Fixed? Then it's just the mounting or adjustment. Not fixed? It's the switch itself or the wires or connectors to it.

Mower will not drive


Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.

Riding mower dies when releasing brake


the seat switch is the problem. the switch itself could be bad, but usually theproblem is that the connector is just not plugged in all the way [by the way, trying to bypass the switch by inserting the wire doesn't work because there is a "switch" inside the connector to prevent you from doing just what you did]
