I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Safety switch is not working to complete the run circuit, check the safety switches and the harness to them for damage.   Seat switch and PTO switch are common problem areas.
