Question about Husqvarna Riding Lawn Mower 42 Inch Cut Yth2042
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
This statement: "Noticed when the engine did start, it seemed to race up to much higher RPM than usual before it shut down." is telling you that the fuel solenoid on the bottom of the carb lost power so it shut off the fuel.
Look on the main wiring harness of the mower about even with the foot pedals but inside the cowling. Your looking for a 20 amp fuse (Flat type with the U piece between the terminals.) For some reason that fuse has failed. There has to be a shourt some where that caused the fuse to fail. Locate the short.... start in the pedal switch area and then the seat switch area looking for shorts. After that you just have to check everything including the lights (if so equipped) for shorts. Who knows even the wiring for the fuel solenoid or the fuel solenoid itself could be shorted.
The fuse may have a black plastic rectanular cover on it but will not be far from the main harness.
If you need any assistance or have any comments feel free to respond here.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Once you've determined that the problem is not
resolved by troubleshooting the above issues, it may very well be that
you need to replace the starter.
