Engine dies when brake is released.

You have a problem with a safety interlock. I'm betting it's the operator presence safety seat switch. To check if it is the seat switch:
  1. Unplug the seat switch.
  2. Jumper the seat switch wiring harness plug receptacles.
  3. Start your tractor & release the brake. If the tractor stays running, replace the seat switch.

My 1997 blazer all three brake lights wont work ,checked the fuses all good .parking lights and turn singnals work fine .when i push the brake pedal you hear a noise comeing down from the pedal. please...

There is a switch on the back side of the brake pedal that turns on the brake lights (it looks like a button) when you press the pedal, I would start by finding that switch, pressing it by hand and seeing if anything happens. If that doesnt work then the switch probably needs to be replaced.

If you have a multimeter you can remove the switch and test it to see if its working.

With the switch not pressed, check the resistance between the two leads, it should read infinity.

When you press the switch the resistance should drop to zero.

Anything else suggests a faulty switch, which you should be able to get at your local auto parts store.

You may either need a seat switch,pto switch or a park break switch.If the tracter is in nuetral with the park break set,it should start with out anyone on the seat,eliminating the seat switch.If you on the seat and the park brake is pushed and it wont start make sure the pto is off,if it is and nothing happens,then it's likely the parkbrake switch.Also check the connections on the battery,starter and engine block[ground].Let me know how you make out.

Brake lights don't work

You'll need to check the brake light switch with a multimeter. Meters are fairly cheap ($5 to $10) and can be bought at any home improvement store, Radio Shack, auto parts stores etc. Move the driver seat all the way back, look near the top of the brake pedal with a flashlight.

There will be a switch attached near the brake pedal support, disconnect it. Then test between the leads on the switch itself with the multimeter set on ohms or continuity. While holding these in place, activate the switch either at the switch or with the brake pedal.

The switch should read very low or no resistance when it's activated (closed). In it's normal (rest) position, it should read extremely high or infinite resistance. Anything else and it's likely shot - replace it.

Good luck!

Sounds like the safety switch in the seat is bad or disconnected. Look under seat to see if anything is unplugged.
