Sounds like an interlock switch of some kind that isn't functioning properly.

I bet the seat switch or parking brake switch is out of kilter. On a Sunstar, there is no brake pedal switch since it has individual wheel brakes, but it does have a parking brake switch.
I suspect the problem is the parking brake switch. It usually doesn't start when the seat switch is in a grumpy mood. I think you have to be in the seat for the Sunstar to crank. Some Simplicity tractors don't require that.

Yes, you have to be in the seat for it to crank, I am also thinking its the parking brake switch thats acting up. Mike
