A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the tractor stalling. I know how frustrating that is.

You're right; it will be an issue with one of the safety switches. Besides the seat switch, there are two other switches. One is for the brake/clutch, and the other is for the attachment clutch. They will be identical in design, so just look at each of them for testing. You will need to test these switches with a meter to see which is at fault. 

I have posted a great short video below that shows how to properly test an interlock switch.
