Park neutral safety switch could be bad , also the shift interlock safety system .
Shift Interlock System A brake/shifter interlock system consists of the following:
  • ignition switch (11572)
  • brake pedal stoplight switch (13480)
  • brake shift interlock module
  • brake shift interlock solenoid assembly (attached to key interlock assembly)
  • necessary wiring
On floor-shift vehicles, the ignition/shifter interlock cable (3F719):
  • locks the floor shift transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position when the ignition switch is in the LOCK position.
  • requires the floor shift transaxle range selector lever to be in the PARK position to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
Condition Possible Source Action
  • Shift Interlock System Does Not Release or Lock Properly
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Blown fuse.
  • Damaged stoplight switch.
  • Damaged shift lock actuator.
  • GO to Pinpoint Test A .

  • Check Fuse 5 (5A) located in fuse junction panel.
Is fuse OK?
  • Turn ignition switch OFF.
  • Remove Fuse 5 (5A).
  • Disconnect shift-lock actuator connector C203 located to the right of steering column.
  • Measure resistance of the Circuit 1003 (GY/Y) between the correct terminal of Fuse 5 (5A) and ground.
Is resistance greater than 10,000 ohms?
Yes No REPLACE Fuse 5 (5A). GO to A3 . SERVICE Circuit 1003 (GY/Y) wire between fuse junction panel and shift-lock actuator. A3 CHECK POWER SUPPLY FROM FUSE 5 (5A)
  • Reinstall Fuse 5 (5A).
  • Turn ignition switch to RUN.
  • Measure voltage on Circuit 1003 (GY/Y) wire and ground.
Is voltage greater than 10 volts?
Yes No GO to A4 . SERVICE Circuit 1003 (GY/Y) wire between interior fuse panel and shift-lock actuator. A4 CHECK POWER SUPPLY FROM FUSE 28 (15A)
  • Turn ignition switch OFF.
  • Disconnect connector C2016.
  • Turn ignition switch ON.
  • Measure voltage on Circuit 10 (LG/R) and ground.
Is voltage B+?
  • Turn ignition switch OFF.
  • Disconnect shift-lock actuator connector C203.
  • Apply brake pedal.
  • Measure voltage on Circuit 810 (R/LG) wire and ground.
Is voltage greater than 10 volts with brake pedal applied and less than 1 volt with brake pedal released?
Yes No GO to A6 . SERVICE Circuit 810 (R/LG) wire between stoplight switch and shift-lock actuator. A6 CHECK SHIFT-LOCK ACTUATOR GROUND
  • Measure resistance of Circuit 57 (BK) and ground.
Is resistance less than 5 ohms?
Yes No REPLACE shift-lock actuator. SERVICE BK wire.

Zts 7500 craftsman zero turn electric clutch quit working

  • ·With the engine OFF. Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs just to be safe.
  • ·Make sure that the battery is charged to 12 volts.
  • ·Make sure that there is a good ground from the negative battery terminal to the frame and engine. If there is corrosion around the cable ends bolted to the frame or engine its possible there is a weak ground. Unbolt the connections and scrape and or wire brush them so you have metal to metal contact.
  • ·Remove the clutch control wire from the prong on the clutch. Run a hot wire from positive battery terminal and touch it to the wire prong of clutch. You should see a spark if there is current in the circuit. If the clutch doesn't click and or operate when direct wired then its probably burned out.
  • · If it does operate with the jumper wire but not with the switch on the machine, then the problem must be in one of the switch circuits on the machine. Use a multi meter to check continuity of each switch and circuit.
  • ·The issue may be a bad connection in one of the interlock circuits or a broken wire.
  • · I can't tell you to bypass the interlocks so you'll have to use common sense to analyze the problem. If you were to decide to make some jumpers to test the interlock switches then I have found that a short piece of #10 or 12 gauge copper wire with the ends hammered flat so they'll insert into the plugs make fine temporary bypass loops.
  • ·The main switch on the dashboard could be bad so that would be an obvious place to start testing.
  • ·A serviceable replacement on / off switch could be purchased at radio shack, an auto parts store, hardware store or on line. Sears direct parts may have the parts but the prices are steep and there is a considerable lag time. You might have to work out the terminal locations on a non sears switch but electricity doesn't care who makes the switch so why should you as long as it works. I've used a two pole light switch from the parts box to make temporary repairs so we could get a job done.

How to fix my craftsman riding mower, whcih dies after engaging blade

make sure blades not jammed. with mower off, try turning blades by hand.
it could either be a safety switch in the seat or for the reverse paddle.
make sure its not in reverse when you attempt to engage blades.
you should be able to bypass both switches with a jumper wire for testing purposes. if it works with jumper, replace the switch(s).

Cranks over with no keys in it

Hello, This problem can be either the starter Relay or the Ignition switch. There should be a small wire on the starter Relay. Disconnect this wire, its nickname is the "Tickler" and then reconnect the Battery. If the Battery arcs and the starter spins, then the internal parts of the starter Relay are fried. You need a new starter Relay. The Relay should need to get a signal from the "Tickler" to work.

If the starter does not turn when you reconnect the battery, you need to test the "Tickler" wire for power. Use a testlight or a Voltmeter and see if the wire has power and do not move the Ignition switch from the position when it was messing up. There should not be power in this wire. If there is power there, then the Ignition switch is messed up. If this is a newer car or truck; one of the Interlock switches at the top of the Brake lever under the dash can be crushed or out of position. If this is a stick-shift, there can be an Interlock contact on the clutch pedal lever.

Most of the time the Interlocks will be cutout switches, the Pos+ power is originating from somewhere else like the Ignition switch. But sometimes the Pos+ and Neg wires can both be in the Interlock and when the Interlock breaks, the wrong wires connect. So before taking apart the plastic cover on the steering column to get at the Ignition switch, make sure the Interlocks are not broken.

I hope my solution is very helpful in solving the problem.

My Craftsman Model #917.270662 42" 15.5 HP will start, but when I release the clutch/brake pedal it shuts off. Does the clutch need replaced??

No! It is probably the seat interlock switch. Tip up the seat and look underneath. Do you see that gray or white plastic switch with two wires going into it? That is it! You can go on Searspartsdirect and price up a replacement and have it sent to your house.

Craftsman 917.258503 will not start or make any noise when turning key

this is hard to solve when you are not looking at it, common problems are: bad switch, bad solenoid, bad saftey interlock switch, such as seat,blade, brake some have a reverse interlock. the switches i would check first. if a wire is unplugged then you are fourtunate in that aspect. there is also a blade type fuse located somewhere in the wiring harness, usually under the hood. i would check the brake switch first though, the others usually only come in play after its running with the exception of the key switch and solenoid

Craftsman 18.0 HP 42" lawn tractor stalled while mowing tall grass cleaned out the bottom of it and now it will not start again no turn over, clicking just nothing pls help! Very easy terms this is a woman...

Perhaps one of the safety interlock switch leads got disconnected when you were cleaning out the plug. Look for two dangling ends with connectors and reconnect any you find.
