It always helps to list the exact model number you're working on. It could be the clutch/brake switch, since it runs when it's depressed. It could likely be the operator present switch ( switch in the seat) Or could be the switch on the power take off switch (blade engage) If you have the exact model number you can look up the wiring diagram and determine exactly what switches are in the ignition circuit.

1993 buick century starts jumping when you stop, engine dies, but will start.


This could be a sign that the torque converter is starting to fail. A torque converter does pretty much for an automatic transmission what a clutch does for a standard transmission. When either fails, when coming to a stop, the engine will die. For more on a torque converter and its functions, please go here

You have a wire shorting out when you press the clutch. You will need to have help looking for it. Have someone set inside and press the clutch and look for a wire that is coming into contact with the linkage. Good Luck.

2000 Dodge Durango Won't Start


You might want to Check electronic sensors, like would you start with the idle control sensors.Also Try tot urn the ignition key to the point just before the engine starts to turn over And leave the key in the that position. If the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank,remove the gas cap & listen for a "whirring" sound. This sound means your electronic pumping is working.
