    Similar problem - instaolled new battery and checked for proper charge. Sitting on the mower while depressing the brake pedal. PTO is disengaged. Engine "clicks" like it is a dead or low battery and engine will not turn over.

There may be a safety kill switch under your seat that does not allow the engine to start unless your sitting down. Check for continuity when sitting. Also check at the wires and connections, those little mice can do a job on them,

If you are talking about a riding mower, then try turning the blades off before starting mower. I had my blade switch in the on position once and could no figure out why the tractor wouldn't start until I pushed the mower into the garage.

the engine light is recording this change it air /fuel mixture and will stay on until the vacuum has been restored and the air /fuel mixture is again correct
replace the brake booster

Generac NP 50G wont crank

Measure voltage drop across the far ends of the fuse wiring (should measure zero), as one of the wires or it's connection to either end of the fuse may be open. Check the battery negative grounding connection at the frame. If all ok, you may need to find a wiring diagram for the machine. Does this unit have a low-oil-level switch which will kill the engine if set?

Fuse blows repeatedly

The auto speed control is failed. Keep it manual and see how it does...It will run at full throttle even when no load is running. Then fix the throttle control when able.
