Either the seat or blade sensor switch is bad or unplugged. all newer mowers have a saftey feature. if you get off the seat while its running with the brake off it shuts new cub shuts down if the park brake is off and you get off the seat, the blades dont matter.

Shuts down at stop signs

do the simple test
start the car and see if it idles normally-- foot off the brake--if so good
now put your foot on the brake -does the engine stop-- if so then replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak
you may not notice the difference as most people sit at lights with their foot on the brake so all they understand is that the engine stops at lights.

What would cause engine yo die at a stop light and not start again. The engine almost turns over but doesnt.

engines stopping at lights can sometimes be attributed to a vacuum leak in the brake booster
test by idling the engine with the hand brake on and no foot brake then apply the foot brake and if the engine dies then it is the brake booster
hard to restart may be the vacuum leak if you still have your foot on the brake.

How do i stop my brake light from staying on on my 2014 low rider

Basically all brake lights are triggered by a switch that is located near a pivot of the lever you are pressing on with your foot or applied by hand pressure in, whatever the vehicle. The trick is to locate the switch which in your case has stopped working, It is either broken or stuck in the closed position. Locate the switch, replace it and you should be good to go.

With my foot on the brake, I turn the key and the mower engine starts. Taking my foot off the brake, the engine stops. There is no change in mower engine speed when I step on the gas. What do I repair. ...

Check your safety switches for proper operation. For example with the brake engaged it is posible to start the mower without a rider, if the seat safety switch is bad, then when you let off the brake it does not signal a rider in the seat and will kill the engine. I would start with the seat safety switch, try disconnecting it and then start and try to mow. If you are able to then you know that is where the problem is.

I hope this helps you out.
