The "START" relay needs to remain energized. Could be seat switch or other. See link below for wiring diagram.

The last 2 digits of your code give the year it was made so 2203 it means its made in 2003

My best guess would be the seat switch. That’s usually what causes both conditions to shut down the engine.

With the lawnmower not running engage the blades, now you can use your hand to check the amount of tension as no parts should be moving so you won't have to take a trip to the er after doing so

Try cycling the safety switches.

1. Turn key to RUN position (1 position CCW from START)
2. Park Brake OFF/ON
4. Steering ARMs IN/OUT
5. Rise from operator seat and drop firmly into seat
6. Attempt start

If still doesn't run then likely the "START" relay. The Ariens have an atypical safety implementation and varies significantly model to model. Please comment below with your model number and I will assist further if need be.
