There is two things that shut down the engine through the safety switches, 1 is it grounds the coil wires so it quiets firing the spark plugs, they are small flat spades on each of the coils under the flywheel shroud, unplugging the key switch should overcome that . The second thing is there is a wire that fastens to the bottom of the carb that opens a solenoid to allow fuel to the main jet, unplug it and put a jumper wire from the positive battery terminal to the wire on the carb and this will open it so it can run. Now touch the two big battery cable nuts on the starter solenoid together with a screw driver or metal pliers handles to turn the engine over and when it starts stop touching the terminal on the starter solenoid. To kill the engine unplug the hot wire to the fuel solenoid from the + battery terminal. If you can read wiring diagrams you can do this. Like you I want to hear it run before I put much time into it,

I have an L100 series John Deere tractor mower. Pretty sure the Magneto is not sparking. Need the diagram.q

A quick test is to unplug the small wire plugged onto the ignition module if it starts then it is good , you will need to plug it back in to shut it off when the key is in the off position.You will find the ignition module under the flywheel shroud, it has the spark plug wire on it. The wire runs through some safety switches on its way to the key and those switches are most likely the problem.

I have a John Deere 355d lawn tractor. Every time I engage blade or release brakes the mower dies out. Checked safety seat switch and its not that.

Try pulling up on your PTO switch to engage the RIO switch. If it works then there is a problem with the reverse switch is located near the directional pedals/linkage or on the transmission. Attached is a picture of the switch from the John Deere parts catalog and a wiring diagram.

John deere lane rider la135 wont start.

You don't mention if they are on and are bright or are week. Do they dim when trying to cranks the motor? I would start with checking the ground wire at the battery and where it connects to the frame. Make sure both are clean. From there, have the battery tested and then the starter.
