Question about Toro Garden

Open Question

Hello, I have a Toro Z master Z557 and when I try to disengage the parking brake the engine will shut down. this happens more times than not.The seat safety switch checks out OK. What is next could it be the seat delay switch and if so how to check it. Thank you in advance for your help, Richard.

SOURCE: Poulan Riding Mower won't crank, battery OK.

Forget the safety switches for now.The first thing I would check would be the fuse. It will be located on the battery side of the solenoid. Follow your positive battery cable to the solenoid. There will be a small red wire coming off of that post with an inline fuse. If the fuse is good, check your solenoid. There are two wires plugged into spade terminals at the bottom of the solenoid. Unplug the one that is insulated, the other one is a ground. Hook a test light from that wire to ground. When you turn the key to start (with the brake pedal held down), it should light. If it lights, your solenoid is bad. If not, then you can start looking at switches. Probably will be one of the two. Hope this helps. Dwain

SOURCE: riding mower dies when releasing brake

the seat switch is the problem. the switch itself could be bad, but usually theproblem is that the connector is just not plugged in all the way [by the way, trying to bypass the switch by inserting the wire doesn't work because there is a "switch" inside the connector to prevent you from doing just what you did]

SOURCE: L130 mower shuts down when

you can bypass the seat switch and see if the switch itself is bad, I do not know on a JD but on a Cub Cadet the RMC controls the safety switches, which is a small black box with a connect plugged into it. Hope this helped Tim

Just purchased a toro zero turn mower at garage sale. Ran very well first couple weeks. I was running it the other day, shut it down, jumped back on 10 mins later, mower does not start.


You'll need to check all the safety switches. Probably one in the seat, one for the mower engaged, one for clutch/parking brake engaged, possibly one for reverse gear selected, and possibly for position of the steering arms.

Toro Z will not start but turns over. Getting fuel and spark. Motor will crank without setting in seat. Break is on, PTO is disengaged and both levers are in netural.


Timing or stuck valve. If it is indeed getting fuel into the cylinder. Try directly squirting a small amount of fuel into the carb throat. If it then actually fires off you know the carb needs a cleaning. Be careful though as if it happens to backfire it can try to catch fire.

Toro zero turn starts fine and stalls as soon as I disengage brake


Sounds like the seat switch is not reading you are in the seat. Without a wiring diagram, it is difficult to say exactly.

well if it turns over with solinoind jumped out and not with the key id say yes your on the right track as it's something in the safe to start circuit could those wires you found posibly be near the seat maybe if so I'll bet they fit in a seat switch that may have got unhooked for something

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.

Hi, you must have the blades disengaged and the park brake locked on before you can get off it. Regards Phil.

Toro lawn tractor : tractor will not start


On most riding mowers there are several switches that must be actuated before it will start. First, make sure that blades are disengaged. Also, if there is a handle that engages and disengages the blades, you might try holding it in the dis-engage position in case the switch is out of adjustment. There is probably one under the seat also. This switch kills everything if you are not sitting in the seat for safety reasons. The switch here could be out of adjustment or mis-positioned. Also, make sure the parking brake is set, and the gear is in neutral, and not forward or reverse. Also, even if the parking brake is set, you might try pressing the brake all the way down while starting, as this switch might be out of adjustment. All of the switches should be easy to locate and adjust. Also, you should check the battery. It is possible that you left the key on by mistake and drained it.

Hope some of this helps.
