Hi, I hadn't used my mower in about 10 days. Went to start it and fairly new battery was dead. Had it charged and it started up fine but when I release the brake the engine shuts down. Can anyone help? Thanks.
It sounds as if you might have a short to ground somewhere in your fail safe switch circuit. Hence the reason the battery voltage was drawn down. Check your safety switch circuit out and look for continuity to ground with a ohm meter. disconnect the negative battery lead on the battery before taking measurements. Disconnect the seat switch and measure both wires to ground. You might see a kick on your meter needle when checking the pink wire. The yellow wire though should not show any continuity unless something is wrong. The yellow wire carries the Plus (+) battery voltage. With the negative battery lead disconnected there should not be any continuity to ground. At least thats the way I read the schematic for a X495....Try it and see....
