Morning fellas,

Like the title says it wont start up with the key. I can however jump the terminals on the solenoid and she'll fire right up. I replaced the solenoid thinking it was the problem to no avail. The previous owner defeated the parking brake switch so thats not the issue. What else is left besides the ingnition switch and a possible short?

There is a safety switch connected to the left pedal. The switch is located under the plastic tunnel cover, which is likely the one the previous owner bypassed. There also should be one to the seat. The pto switch I believe is also interactive, and will not allow a start if the switch is on, or if it is faulty.

The seat switch was the culprit! Bypassed it for now, have to order one come Monday. Thanks Olcowhand!
