John Deere LT 133 key switch wiring help?

When I purchased this mower it didn't have a key switch, only six wires hanging out of hole. After purchasing a key switch I now need to know what wires go where on the switch. The switch has five wire tabs on it and they are labeled B_G_L_M_S and the wires are purple,yellow,red,white,black and black. I can trace the wires to their source, I just need to know what source feeds which tab on the switch. Thanks in advance.

I would go to the dealer and see if they have a diagram of how the wires are to be placed. Or try the internet to locate the diagram there. You may be able to find it at the John Deere web site by looking up the owners manual.

My lt 133 john deere mower has gas in oil and back fires. runs 5 min and stops.

It's going to need a carb kit to fix the problem. Make sure your gas cap is venting ok, because gas expands in the summer and can force gas to pass thru carburetor and flood the cylinder then passing down into the oil. Depending on the age of your mower, the carburetor may have a gas shutoff solenoid on the bottom and this may have malfunctioned. Another is a bad float or needle valve which a carburetor kit would fix. A needle kit with bowl gasket may be all it will need. Hope this will help.

John Deere LT 133 lawn tractor quits running after about 10 minutes.

Will it restart right away or does it have to cool down? If it has to cool down, then run it until it quits. Next remove the plug, reattach the plug wire, and ground the plug to the block. Finally try to start it with the key. If you get no spark or very weak spark then the ignition coil needs to be replaced.

Let me know how it goes.

sounds like the safety switch under the seat may be bad. unhook and / or bypass the switch. if this fixes the problem then replace the switch. hope this helps you

Ridding mower lt 133 willl not start

The wireing to the relay,battery power to pin 30.Purple wire should be on pin 87.Other purple wire that gets power from the safety swutches has power to it only if all the safeties are in place ,pin 86.Pin 85 is a ground wire.If the park brake is on and the pto is off and you are sitting on the seat then it should start.If it does'nt the you need a key switch,a starter relay,or as starter.
