Rick, welcome to the forum!

 

Why do you want the safety switches unhooked? It is a lot more trouble to try to engineer a bypass than hook things up standard and operate the tractor like it was designed.  You also risk blowing electrical components when you hook up wires and connections that shouldn't be.  Something like your Craftsman has enough electrical modules to cause me concern doing too much rewiring.

Are you sure you want to bypass the safety switches? No member here will condone bypassing any safety switches. If you bypassed or unhooked the pressure switch on the seat more than likely that is what is causing it to shut off when engaging the PTO.

Sounds like the seat switch to me. Hook it back up and see if it fixes the problem. Or does your mower do a good job on the yard without someone steering?

Your next line was going to be, "If so, I want one!"

Hook the safety switches back up. You won't get much help when it comes to dis connecting safety switches.

While I :welcome: you to GTtalk, we do not generally allow discussions on how to defeat manufacturers safety switches.
This position is partly because of liability, but primarily to promote the safety of our members.
Because of this, I combined the two open threads you had on the topic and will now lock the thread to avoid any negative situations or outcomes.

If you are needing information to troubleshoot the switches that are there in an attempt to put them back into working order, you may find the membership more inclined to try to assist.
