Safety switch - parking brake


You can but I wouldn't recommend it. I would get a multimeter and check switches for continuity. This will tell you if switches are good or bad. This switch could be a normally open or normally closed switch that is why I wouldn't recommend jumping it until you know what kind of switch you have. I think your defineitly on the right track though. Good luck.

Replace switches & clutch. When brake is release everything dies. Ineed a wiring diagram.


There are a few safety switches on a riding mower. One is the brake clutch, which must be engaged to start mower if not in neutral for a manual transaxle. Another is a blade engaged safety that will not allow you to start it with the blades engaged and the other is the seat safety that prevents starting if the brake is not engaged.

If the seat safety switch is messed up and you release the brake it will kill the engine. I would start there.

I hope this helps get you going.

Problem still exist,engine dies when brake relesases,blade engage,unplug safety switch under the seat


Switch under seat needs to be plugged in and make sure the pto lever for the blades is depressing the safety switch. If you are sitting on seat and seat switch is plugged in properly and it cuts off when brake is released then it is seat switch. It is about a $10.00 part; no big deal to replace.
