Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. Base on what the tractor is doing I would also suspect the ignition switch. I recommend pulling the connector off the back of the ignition switch first. Then just put the connector on so all the wires are making contact. When you are ready, turn the key to the start position. Once the engine starts leave the key in the start position and remove the connector from the back of the ignition switch. If the engine keeps running, you may have gotten the wrong ignition switch. The back of the ignition should be labeled the same as the image below.
I hope this is help. Please let me know what you find.
Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

A:

This problem is not likely to be caused by a failing ignition switch.

Raise the seat and unplug the seat switch. Make sure the terminals are clean and corrosion free and then plug it back in. Press the plug hard against the switch and then lower the seat and immediately try the machine out. If everything works as it should then use a zip tie to secure the plug to the seat switch. There is a fail safe build into the plug that will cause this problem if the plug is not right against the side of the switch.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
